Hi. everyone! I'm a new GTV owner with some glitches
I've always been an alfa fan and a fan of the gtv in particular. I have recently bought a 97R 2.0TS GTV, but it has a few minor glitches that i thought you guys might be able to help me with!?
Firstly, the temp gauge runs high even when engine is running normal. At a recent service they said that the fan kicks in at 103 degrees which is normal and the water temp is 91 degrees after its been running for ages, which is also normal. They replaced a temp sensor which made no difference. They said it could well be a wiring fault with the temp gauge. Any ideas????
Secondly, the bonnet rises after a journey. it seems to rise up and just rest as if the bonnet release inside has been pulled. luckily the cath still hold it in place. Can it be adjusted in any way????
Thirdly, does a diesel like clatter at start up on cold mornings always mean the variator needs replacing?? It only happens on cold mornings and goes after 5 seconds or so. Is it an expensive job???
And lastly, the electric aerial has broken. is this easy to buy and fit myself? any reccomendations on where to purchase one????
Sorry for the essay people, but would really appreciate the help and advice!!
