    I've a 2003 156 2.4JTD 150 with 205K miles on the clock. I got caught in flood water. I was able to remove the injectors and clear the water. I changed air, fuel and oil filters and put fresh oil in. I was also advised to put a bottle of Cataclean in the tank. The car is running and has covered...
  3. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi I drove my Alfa GT 1.9JTD through flood water on the motorway and now it's making a kind of rattling noise on engine idle. Any idea what could be the cause? Rattling noise seems to disappear when revving the engine. It is most noticeable when gearbox is in neutral. Whilst driving the car...

To be honest, I don't think they spent much time examining the car, but thats just my hunch. Anyway, a client of...

  8. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    We got caught up in the Yorkshire floods a couple of weeks ago. And ended up with the engine ingesting 2 litres of muddy water and the interior flooded up to the seats. Pushed it out and got a tow to a local garage and was greeted with "916, strong engine, should be ok" Sure enough 2 hours of...
