    Hi all, I'm new here but I've been lurking for a while. I've recently become the proud owner of a facelifted Alfa 166 fitted with the venerable 3.2 unit. I bought the car as a laugh as it has over 300 000 miles on it (on its second engine, but original 'box) and zero rust. One of the previous...

    Last week distribution belt of my alfa 147 1.6ECO broke. 8 valves were found to be crooked. After revision of the cylinder head, I have mounted it again. However, now the engine does not exceed 3000 rpm. It just doesn't react and is very slow. I locked the camshaft inlet on cylinder2 and the...

    I've had my timingbelt replaced, along with waterpump, tensioner and idler. When it's idling now I hear a sound I'm not to comfortable with, as if it could be something with one of the wheels for the belt, and painfully aware of the price of a failure...

    My car is a 2010 with 9500 miles on clock, I don't believe the belt is changed but. I know the past engines been really picky about timing belts but..really now? Already? Feels a bit unnecessary already, anyone with experience of these engines? Water pump issues? Special tools?

    Hi guys, Love my little 2004 147 JTDm - best and until now the most reliable little car I've owned. Has 140k on the clock, and just had it serviced last month costing a cool £1000 for 4 x all season tires, synth oil, new aux belt, all new pads, two new discs, tracking etc. Clutch and EGR...

    Apologies if this has already been asked. My 147 had it's first timing/auxiliary belt and water pump replacement at 49301 miles (now 70k), the date on the receipt is April 2011. I know the recommended interval is 60k or 4 years but do lower mileage cars generally require more frequent belt...

    My 2006 159 1.9jtdm had the usual issue of timing belt / water pump failure and i had them both replaced. After replacement two issues emerged. A. No pulling power up to aprox 2000rpm+ black smoke and B. When the car is cold is extremely difficult to start. The local dealership informed me...
