I'm writing from Turkey. I have a 2004 156 2.0 Selespeed. Two days ago in the morning I was driving my car and the speed was about 200 km/h and suddenly the engine was crashed and I picked up some piston arms on the road. It had been 15 minutes from departure and I checked temparature and it was about 70 centigrade celcius. I'm alive as you see but it was too much noise and dirt. At last I pulled over safely and stopped.
The car is at 58000 km, 20.000km and 40.000km maintenance was ok. The authorized people from ALFA ROMEO tells that if I made less than 20000 km in a year I have to change engine oil without waiting next maintenance in a year. I changed engine oil but I canít prove it.
Can you say anything about possible reasons?
Ps. One month ago the trigger strap was broke off while I was driving at 20 km/h speed. It happend at 56.000 km and in Turkey the authorized seller tells that the strap must be changed at maintenance at 60.000 km.
