164 24v cloverleaf (engine rattle)
Hi Alfa owners,
I recently become the owner of a very nice 164 24v cloverleaf on an M plate, the car has had a lot of money spent on her; i roughly added up £6000 in a three year period, it has an mot till the end of oct 07 and was running well. That is untill recently, when a rather disturbing rattle become apparent. A local mechanic daignosed a big end problem on cylinder no 5, so not good news. has anyone had a similar problem or know what this involves i.e cost, labour time etc, any info would be appreciated.
