Alfa 156 2.0 JTS

Hi - Advice required

Hi all, looking for some advice, recently purchased 54 plate 156 jts and yesterday noticed steam/smoke coming from engine bay!!

Local mechanic has said the coolant manifold is leaking?

Is this a common fault?
Is this under warranty?
If not is it expensive to get fixed?

One more thing, Intermitent airbag warning light, any ideas?

Any help greatly appreciated.

hello and welcome to AO BG...

Not aware that the cooling manifold is a common problem..but they do go...the airbag light is probably a loose connection under either the driver or passengers front seat...cable ties or soldering usually sorts the problem..2002 vehicles onwards will not need the light re-setting..when the problem is sorted the light will go out...

all the best
