Hello fellow Afisti.... just an update on my STILL SICK GTV!!!!.....It was finally picked up from my house 9 days ago ( they didnt have a towing eye at first..). 9 days later, nothing has happened, i am sick and tired of it. The garage invited me to come down last Sat morning to have a look at the head which had been taken off...NOTHING WRONG WITH IT.....the head gasket had NOT failed!, however, the 1st piston on the right had virtually broken up!!!, due to ( we guess??? ) extreme heat??....the radiator was falling apart and wasnt cooling the car, now i am in a real sticky situation. The garage offered to repair it (IF the guy from Alfa breakers advised him it could be done...), i cant afford a re-con engine at over £1000, i need a new radiator ( £150? ), a new head gasket set and a new piston, he also needs to re-ring all 4 pistons ). The problem i have is that no info is being passed to me about the repair and im getting very miffed about it all, I WANT MY CAR BACK!, please could anybody out there tell me IF i can buy a piston, fit new rings etc.... put a new radiator in, fix it up together and hey presto???...because i am tempted to take my car back after 2 weeks off the road and do it myself or pay someone else who really wants to do it and loves Alfas!!. Yeah im angry and confused!!!.
