Hi All

I have always loved Alfas and decided to take the plunge last month and picked up a lovely 2002 156 JTS Lusso 2.0.

I was always warned and given the horror stories but hey what do you expect from an Italian car!

I do however have a problem that I would like some advice on. I have recently noticed that the engine noise has changed from a lovely purr to what I can only describe as sounding a little like an electric car. I have no idea what this could be and my local garage said it might be the fan belt.

I am due to have the cambelt changed tomorrow also.

Has anyone else experienced this problem?? Performance hasn't been compromised it is just the irritating noise and just a frustration.

Any ideas would be appreciated!!!

Otherwise great to be part of "The Club"

Hi, welcome to AO :) The noise could be the variator, or it could be that its been run dry of oil (although that's more likely to be a knocking noise)
