Hi Folks,

Just saw a very low mileage '00 156 for sale with a broken
timing belt, at a very low price.
I gave the guy a bell and he told me that ''people'' he had
spoken to, had told him that it may have damaged the engine
and that even with a new t/belt there may have been other
damaged caused. He seemed pretty nonchalant about the whole
thing, and just wants to get shot of it (been there myself).

I thought damage could only really be done to the engine
when driving with a blown head gasket, I'm I being too naive,
in any case, what would I expect to pay to for a new belt and fitting?

Cheers.

hi roeburndale,
thanks for the link, interesting, but I'm based in Ireland, I think I'll give her a miss, at the moment I don't have the time (or the stress capacity) to be worrying about further problems just after fixing 1, even if the car is cheap as chips, I just got shot of my '98 156 1.8 16V T-SPARK for 450 euro, after a broken sump, amongst other problems pushed me over the edge, mind you the Saab 900 I was driving recently had me bored to tears, hence why I am looking for my next Alfa.

Here is the AD if anyone is interested,.....

Alfa Romeo 156 1.6 '00, petrol, 30k, UK reg, €600, Donegal. 087-++++++++.
