Turbo whine on 2.4JTD 156 - NOT!
Hi, thought I'd share my experiences (and misconceptions) about a horrid whine I've been suffering from with my '04 2.4JTD 156 Sportwagon for the best (or worst) part of a year. I had thought that the whine I heard from low revs right up through the range was a turbo issue, but the local Alfa specialists eventually identified it as aux timing belt and tensioners, replaced them yesterday, and it's now running like a dream. I've now switched off the radio and am flooring it at every opportunity just to enjoy the grunt.
Thanks again to Ewan at CP Garage Services in Dundee, without whom, owning an Alfa would be a much more painful experience!
