  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My V6 has developed a knocking sound. To me it seems like it is coming from inside the dash and happens when I just start to move the car or if I accelerate lightly or brake a bit. It sounds like metal knocking on plastic or maybe two hard plastics knocking together. It's quite noticeable. It...

I hadn't noticed anything until last night when driving the car the temp gage went up over 3/4s the way, when I checked coolant level it was empty so...
