Hi all,
I'm new to the Alfa scene. I bought a 2000 reg 156 TS 1.8 as a run around (900 pounds with 55k on the clock) not ignorant to the truth "you're not a true petrol head till you've owned an Alfa!"
I'm not much of a mechanic but I like the challenge of new things... and the alfa is proving to be just that. But with the vast bank of information on here I'm sure I'll make it.

First job; change the thermostat and see if that cures the overheating problem.
So, in advance, cheers!
