Hi can anyone offer some advice? Had a 156 2.0 for 1 day and it has starded to knock very loudly from the engine, it runs very smoothly but is knocking like mad. Is this the curse of Alfa people talk about!!

There is no curse - don't listen to the heathens...

Could you record it and upload to YouTube?

What's the cars history?

Been low on oil, had a belt snap etc?

Hi 1of1, just been on youtube and found the noise, it is the same as 'Alfa 156 engine noise' posted by Tweenage. Think this means big end gone!!!! Great idea thanks.
