    Engine started making a noise, initially it sounded sort of flutter like, (can't think of a better description), so thought it was something flapping about or something underneath. It eventually became more apparent as a tappet like noise. I checked the oil, and it was very low, below the...

    Hi Guys, Can anyone help me out. I need the Inlet and Outlet Valve clearance figures on the 2.4 JTD 10V so I can check which shims must be replaced. The noise apart from the diesel rattle which i got used to is driving me crazy. Regards Tony
  3. Alfa 164 & 166
    Just thought i would ask. My 166 Busso sometimes on start up makes a tapping noise. Goes away after 30/40 seconds and runs great. My mechanic says it's a lazy Tappet and easily replaced. Anybody else had this and was it an easy fix. Also has no affect on the car but just annoys me sometimes

    Hi guys, After repairing my starter yesterday, I took my car for a drive. Noticed a tappet pinging noise while driving in traffic especially when engine is hot. The heat guage was normal (90°).* Also noticed it before at that temp. Its Ok on low revs but pinging starts as soon as I floor it a...

    Hi all, I managed to pick a 105 hp engine over the last couple of weeks with 40mm carbs and trofeo cams?? Checking it over and tiding it up I got to measuring the tappet clearances. Now with the earlier split cams on the current motor in the car finding the gap in the Haynes manual was easy...

    Hi all, Newbie here wanting some advice please. I'm handy with the spanners and have worked on most marques so will be doing all the work on my new alfa myself, although with a new manufacturer its best to ask the people who know them inside out before i make mistakes and spend money on the...

    Hi there, I've got a small oil leak from the 1.7 8v hydraulic tappet engine in my 89 Sud Sprint which i'm pretty sure is coming from one of the cam covers. As I've got to drop the engine/box to change the clutch, I thought I'd change the cam cover gaskets at the same time to sort this small...
  12. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    So the 159 has developed a bit of a intermittent tappet noise at idle and low speed. First thinking lifters, the MPI has hydraulic lifters? But then I've observed the noise is not there most of the time. When it is there it can disappear immediately. So I'm thinking either some oil pump or oil...

    Hello All, Quick technical question as I have run into a hitch with my Alfa 1.6 after an oil filter change. I recently swapped to a thinner weight 5w40 Fuchs Tital Fully Synth oil on Saturday. (Previously I used 10w60) as I wanted to try a different oil out. Now on the run to work this morning...

    Hello. I have a recently restored 16v engine, with almost everything changed. The problem is, that after the engine is up to 80c temp, if I rev hard, almost anytime after, I hear the sound of a tappet clicking in 0-3000 rpm range. If I rev higher, no clicking, and then even at idle the clicking...
