Mornin' folks.

Can anyone name any good Alfa Mechanics in Sheffield, UK?

The only one I know of is the main Stealers, AutoWorld - on Saville st. I've tried searching for them here and on Google, but nothing.

I'm after belt and variator quotes on 1.6 - 147

Many thankies.

:D

Oh, and do I just ask for a belt change, or do I need to specify Tensioner and the other things? too... ?

A Specialist Alfa Garage in Hope, wow!

I know this neck of the woods well! Living on the outskirts, south of the city, it's only a 10 minute drive away.

Thanks so much, I'm calling them right now :D

Hey I've found Autoworld on Saville street okay, they've been really good to me and my motor, they even repaired the reverse light wiring free of charge and cleaned the whole engine bay when my 147 went in for a cambelt change and gave me a clean 147 JTD courtesy car as well. They only charged £280 for the belt, including all the tensioners and wheels!

Hey, dude.

Thanks yeah, I've heard good reports about Autoworld. But earlier I booked in at Peak-Alfa, for a few weeks time. Thought I'd give them a go. Killing half a day in the hills will be nice too.

Just watch it rain :lol:

Paul Craig (07860 372710) took my 156 at very short notice, for diagnosis of a persistant engine warning light and 'get me home' performance. He's just behind the Dancing Dollar off Attercliffe Rd.
Unlike some, he wasn't phased by an Alfa.

He diagnosed a 'slow' sensor after the 2nd cat. He told me he wouldn't condem a part which was "reacting a bit slowly" and reset the CPU. It's been running sweetly since.

I paid £30 for the same service that the nearby dealership wanted £90 for. I suspect they would have told me I needed a new sensor.
I recommend him for cheap, honest diagnostic work...although I'm off to Hope for the serious stuff!

I have used Peak Alfa, they are good! And price is good too. They are on a small industrial estate just outside Hope. After you turn off the main road you are on a very narow road, pass a factory on your left, it is sign posted (ind. est.) shortly on your right. Turn right into this, and right again through some brown metal gates. If you stop inside the gates they are at 11 O'clock of your view, NO sign but Bellas parked about :inlove:

I found it hard to find so typed the above, appologies if you already know.

Peak Alfa @ Hope, Roger Evans the owner is dead straight. My 2001,156 2.0L went for belts,tensioners and variator at a good price but was also given a once over and other minor faults found.

Confirm all that been said before. Peak Alfa are good. Take some walking boots and enjoy a day out. Roger is first class and knows his stuff.

Well next time I'll try Peak Alfa for my motor! There seems to be loads of guys from Sheffield/Derbyshire on here!;)

I too would highly recomend Roger, done a lot on my Bertie and some smaller things on the 155. Usually has a few of the older alfa's and his race car (3ltr GTV) in to take a gander at.:cool:

Picking mine up from peak today (hopefully). Been in for belts variator, water pump tensioners, all brake pads and disks and full service. Station is a 3-4 min walk with hourly trains in both directions (sheffield and manchester). You'll need the directions above as it is a bit tricky to find. Can't really comment yet as I've not picked the car up, but they seem to know what they're talking about and Roger is indeed a nice bloke. Beware though that they don't take credit cards at the moment, but Roger mentioned he will be sorting this out soon. Liberal use of overdraft for me!

Doesn't look like I need to add my praise for PA, but I will :lol:

Roger and Joy have been very helpful when I've used them and the price is always good.

...plus he won his class racing a GTV ;)

I agree, there are quite a few Alfa's in Sheffield, and not many independent garages for them! Well I certainly will give Peak Alfa a try next time, I hope they have expereince of the JTD engines!;)

Glad I could help. Walking boots are a good idea, but there is a bus to take you into Hope or Casleton for a bit of underground adventure. You could also pick up some Blue John jewlery for the missus for under £20. (That would appease any extra expenditure on the Alfa!);)

They can also do recovery if you have any mishaps, better than gettin it to a sealership!:rolleyes:
