72k

  1. Alfa Giulietta
    My 1.4MA (61plate) has now done 65k. I still really like it but do quite fancy a change. ultimately I'd like a Guilia (probably the warm petrol option when it's available). Not sure what yet but I think it's either a case of getting something soon (on a pcp deal with a view to keeping it for...

    Just pulled the plenum off to change out the spark plugs and came across these 2 gaskets. Does anyone know if these also need to be replaced ?

    I have a 1.9 jtdm and it's currently on 69,000 is it due a cam belt change? I know the service is due soon and I'm looking for recommendations anywhere in Birmingham area that can carry out the work. Cheers guys

    Ok, to save some cash I've gradually been doing the 72k service myself (mostly). So far I have done: Timing belt+pulleys (actually Autolusso did that!). Oil+filter. Air filter. Plugs. Greased all suspension bushes. Flushed and refilled the cooling system. Cleaned the contacts on all the fuses...

    Hopefully someone can advise me of the best/cost effective place to get my GT serviced for the 72k in the Worthing/Brighton West Sussex area? Just spoke to someone at Monza Sports (the one at Ashington, not the c**p one in Portslade) and have been quoted £389 for the service. As i need the...

    Been checking around as a 72k service due soon, interesting difference in pricing so far, some independents & Alfa Dealers , guess whos top & bottom! I know you get what you pay for but..................... Including belts & service lowest £450 right up to £950.
  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    What you think of a quote of £950 from an Alfa Stealer, my Alfa specialists are between £430-£600..............................:lol:

    Hi all, My car (2004 GT 2.0) is in for its service today. This morning they are doing the cam belt/tensioners (required) and variator (precautionary) and this afternoon the 72k service. Apart from the normal stuff can you think of anything else that should be addressed? Car has done 6k miles...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm unsure what to do. I just bought a 147 1. 9 M-Jet and there is 58k on the clock. I knew when I bought it that it would need a cambelt change at 72k, however, one alfa garage online said some people bring diesels in at 60k as this when it could have problems. I don't want to take any...

    Hi all, I've got am 02 Reg 147 2.0 T-spark which is coming up to its 72k service. The cambelt was done 2 years ago by the previous owner at the 36k service ( belt,tensioners, the works, over £500!).I am planning to sell it on next summer and will just be a weekend car in a few weeks time (20-30...

    Hello, I'm just after a bit of quick advice/ wisdom. My 147 JTD 8V is due for it's 72k service. Just wondering how much this is going to set me back?? The cam belt was done last yr so hopefully shouldn't be too much. is there anything else i should be aware of? also any garages you would...

    Nobody wants to spend a monkey on stuff that doesnt make their car look better or go faster. But cambelts. like death and taxes, are an inevitability for all car owners, not just Alfa owners. After the local indi quoted me nigh on 600 quid for the cambelt it was back to Ned and the boys at Auto...

    I thought I'd share this ***-bit as I have seen a fair few threads regarding cambelts snapping recently. Alfa Romeo have updated their service schedule and reduced the distance at which the cambelt needs replacing. As far as I know, this affects all GT models. Below is a direct quote from Alfa...
  14. Introduce Yourself
    Hi, Can anybody recommend a good independent garage in Warwickshire or surrounding areas for a 72k service of my 156? Many Thanks.
  15. Alfa GTA
    Air, pollen and oil filters replaced. Shell Helix Ultra 10w-60 Racing oil used. Brake fluid changed as well. No belts changed, as they were done two years ago. Anyone want to guess the price? Done at my locol, very trusted (but not particularly cheap I have to admit) garage. I'm pleased to...

    My V-Reg 156 2.0TS is now up to 77k so well in need of a service! It had its 3rd lot of cam belts tensioners etc last month (and the new water pump) so no worries there :) As the tricky bit is done I'm thinking of doing the service myself - good idea?? What usually gets changed in the 72k...

  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Does anyone know the date Alfa Uk changed the Cam Belt replacement interval down from 72K to 36K. I have a 147 JTD 16V , The belt shredded at 49K just out of warranty. Alfa Uk have said the belt should have been replaced at 36K, My 36K service was carried at at a Alfa dealer 30/05/2006 and the...
