:confused: :mad: Hi
Its same My Alfa 156( read my previous thread)
Now situation is I got a vey bad news from garage that all 16 valves are bent and damaged .He is trying for a replacement head or engine. Still not sure how much all this will cost.What should I do (particularly keeping in mind that I need to change my car in near future any way Third baby due soon so need a 7 seater)

1. throw it(156) in bin

2. Ask garage to do repair all the damage and then try to sell or parexchange

3. Look for engine replacement rather than a repair if so then where.

Please appreciate your thoughts.

Here is my orignal thread

mine bent all the valves, smashed 8 guides and damaged the head itself, cost was £1400 to put right...

might be worth trying for a new engine tho, a 2.0TS engine can be had for around £750 from ebay CLICK HERE or a 1.8TS engine for £500 CLICK HERE however given the choice id want the 2.0 put in! must consider insurance when you that route tho.

for that price id keep it. if the garage does the repairs i see no reason you should sell her, i thought the same when mine went but kept in the end and im really glad i did, shes running like a dream now.

hope you get her sorted mate.
