Not sure if anyone can point me in the right direction but i fear the worst.

Jumped into the car this morning, went to start the engine, as it was starting heard a thud and then engine died, tried to start again and it is just whining like the engine isn't trying to start.

First thought was starter motor but have tried starting it in gear and it lurches, next thing i think is cambelt.

Was assured this was changed in July when i bought the car, looks like i will be calling the AA first thing monday.

Anyone have any thoughts.

Warranty is a non no im afraid, will have to wait till monday till i can get the cover off as stuck on nights, fingers crossed it's not coz if it is then it will be getting scrapped.
Shame as the car is mint.
Thanks for your help.

No probs matey, will have to get AA to drag it home and hopefully diagnose fault. Really ****ed as finally sorted the blown bulb fault.
Oh well looks like the end of my Alfa dreams.

Well car has been recovered, cambelt is fine but AA have said that there is a problem with the front cam. When you try to start it there is a loud knocking, he suspects it may have dropped a valve.

Ebay here it comes, a big thanks to everyone that has helped me with my short lived Alfa experience.

Anybody want to make me an offer, bodywork is in pretty damn good condition, black leather is very very good apart from slight wear on drivers seat, 10 disc cd changer.

Overall a lovely car just not for me anymore, if no one wants it then it's off to Ebay tomorrow.
