166 3.0L Possible Timing Belt issue?
Hi Guys, not really sure if anyone can help me, I'd say you will just tell me to speak with Gerry of TI. My 166 has been basically not getting any use over the last 2-3 years, as I had a company car and now I mainly use the Luas.
There was a kind of squeak coming from the engine over the last 12-18 months, which changed depending on the rpm of the engine. Basically as the speed increased so did the squeak. This has gotten worse and it is now very audible and from a listen in the engine compartment seems to be emanating from the Timing Belt area.
The timing belt was done on the car before I bought it, but that is probably 5 years ago, although I have put up probably only 10-15K miles since then.
In short, am I going to have to do the timing belt to be on the safe side? And as a Long Term Alfa owner, I think I probably know the answer already :-(
