    My son`s 156 ( `04 1.6 TS ) has been laid up ( 2 months ) due he is working abroad. I told him I would start it and give it a run every few weeks.

  6. Rhythmic 'Clicky chattering' from n/s of engine

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Had it on and off for a few weeks. Now it's there all the time, as soon as you turn engine on. It kind of fades in and fades out, fades in and fades out, every 1.5 secs or so. Seems to be down the nearside side of the engine block, about halfway down, not the top of the engine. I may be...
