Its very doable even for one person, it took me 2-3 hours doing it on my own with gearbox attached, and a little less putting the engine back in (not including the water pipes and drive shafts etc) if i condensed the time it took to fully remove and refit to the point of starting her it was about 10 hours... I dont think many garages could charge much less than 10 hrs labour... about 250 +vat

I'm planning on dropping the engine out my GTV when the weather improves, not done it before but I'm willing to give it a go, what's the worst that can happen

Have you had the car long? Just curious to see if these problems happens randomly or if it is purely down to lack of maintenance, possibly from previous owners. I expect that many Alfa do get driven a bit harder than the average Mondeo, but not sure if driving the car hard, after engine has warmed up, contributes to excessive engine trouble?

Are these issue just down to luck or lack of it?
