Hello, I have just bought a 97' 155 with 64k miles. There are a few problems!? The previous owner missed the 60k service and need to get this done together with the cam belt.
Can anybody recommend a good independant Alfa garage to carry out this work in the Manchester area who does good work at sensible prices. The engine is a bit noisy. frown

Ouch, this is gonna cost ya eek!

Does the engine sound a bit like a diesel? Then your variator has gone, get it done when you have the cambelt done as it has to be removed anyway.

Also your plugs are ready for changing, about £100 a set (may be cheaper)

Can't help with the specialist as I've lost me AROC directory :(

WELCOME :D :D :D :D

Hi Carrera,

I'm no expert, but it will probably be the cam variator making the noise, all the belts will need done anyway, or you will have BIGGG PROBLEMS, does it sound like a diesel ??. Is it a 16V, plugs will need changing also (expensive) but will go for the next 60k miles.

wink

Forgot to say you will be looking at about £4-500 for all the work inc parts at a specialist.

Good luck eek! eek! :rolleyes:

I forgot- his phone number may be of use :rolleyes:
01457 835081

He is on a small industrial estate just off the A635. As you head up through Mossley, after you come out of the centre, you will see a sign on the right hand side.

Mention the website- maybe if we spread the word we might get a discount or something

One word of warning though- he doesn't take credit cards- cash or cheque only. (I looked a bit of a pratt as I had to run off to the cash machine and borrow some dosh of a mate :rolleyes: )

Contact Roger Evans at Peak Alfa on 01433 623050.

He is in the Hope Valley, not a million miles away from Glossop.

I live in Stoke and always take my car to him, over 40 miles away. :)
