  3. Going to the junk yard or save able?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, My 3 week old 2004 GT just died after blowing a radiator hose, now it seems like theres no compression in the engine at all, like a broken cam belt. The question is, does this car generate a safe mode if the engine overheats to prevent restarting? If so how do I fix it again? Im in a rural...

Thought might as well take a punt and bought it unseen...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT

Self diagnostic im guessing it needs a new timing valve, not an expensive part but while its off might as well change the cam belt. Few enough i thought, then in this last week...
