If it is just a crank I have a good second hand one if that helps

Thanks theredx19 but I think I need a whole new engine. Was due to send the car to a guy this week but unfortunately the engine is no longer for sale. The search continues...... :-)

Not 100% sure to be honest but it sounds like the big end. It makes a tapping/banging sound when you rev it.
I just think I was unlucky and picked up a bad one. As soon as I got the car I got all the belts, pump etc done but it went soon afterwards. I always found it very difficult to get a proper oil reading even when parked on a flat surface.
I loved driving it though and would be delighted if I could find a well looked after, decent engine to put in it.

Hi guys, what you reckon with this engine???

"I bought a 99 alfa 156 2.0ts with the intention on putting the engine into my 1.6ts but ended up repairing mine instead as changing the engine was to much hassle tax & insurance wise.

The 2.0 alfa i'm offering has over 120000miles on it but was completly rebuild at 85000miles, so the pistons, crank , liners and cylinder head have just over 35000 miles on them and the engine really is very smooth. Variator and MAF were also changed"

How about a 2.5 V6 for 220 spuds?
