Smoll update....

 

The Alfa's smoke problem was diagnosed to be mainly a split turbo pipe, big diameter thing that snakes round the engine bay under the wing and to the intercooler. Genuine part fitted, £200 up my shirt. 

Fuel and air filters could do with a change too, but it now only smokes a little bit when it's cold, and when you plant your trotter on the loud pedal with any force.

 

So, yesterday, SWMBO wanted to "do something" so we set off for Brighton. Got as far as M25 and the QE2 bridge was at a standstill so we aborted. Decided to go to West End, have a mooch round Covent Garden, then to Oxford Street. SWMBO has a blue badge so parking shouldn't be an issue, and it wasn't. 

Weather, supposed to be "showers" turned into a full-on monsoon so we bailed after an hour - 30 minutes of which were spent in Costa Coffee...so we went to The Pictures in Dagenham. Bought tickets, 45 minutes till showtime, then nipped across the carpark to MacD's. Came out tried to start the car, nowt. Walked across to cinema, watched Incredibles 2 (yes I know) tried to start her again, lights on dash, but nowt.

Rang AA at 17.20, matey was there by 18.00 diagnosed faulty starter motor, gave it a few whacks, then tow started me, and got me home. 

Was planning on going to "Crash For Cancer" at Kings Lynn today, but no car, and the prospect of another bill has put pay to that.

I hate cars.

 

VOXSHALL has healed itself; EML hasn't illuminated since the last update, and has been behaving.

I think you had the car m9.

I thought Alfas didn't leave you stranded, but when they get home they enter rigor mortis?

Mrs has gone to work in teh Kia, the Capri is still sulking, un-taxed, not mot'd and pissing coolant, can't use the van for personal use, Junior at work in the Focus.

 

It's big vans an'all.

 

I'm currently searching for my toolkit (BFO hammer and chisel) to have a look at the starter motor see if it's just a poor connection or it needs replacement.

Alfa is now fixed, another £250 odd up my shirt, new starter motor fitted.

Only one job really left now, one of the wheel bearings is grumbling, it's been doing it a while, but other issues have been deemed in more urgent need of open wallet surgery.

 

Been away for the weekend, and SWMBO is finding it increasingly difficult to get in an out of the back or front seats, due to OMGNEEPHAIL (she's got no cartiledge in her left knee and not much left in her right). It's forced our hand into getting her a badermatic, but now it's going to influence my choice of steed.

 

I'm thinking Volvo XC90 as it's a bit higher than a normal car.... but is it too high? Madam is only 5ft tall......But if so a V70 will do ok too.

 

As some will recall I had a V40 T4 a couple of cars ago, and miss it, so I'm very much leaning towards a Moose again.

 

Anything I should know about the XC90 or V70? Pez or Dizz? Manuel(sp) or Bader?

 

Or should I get something else? Budget will be Alfa + £3k, maybe a smidgen moar 

 

Anyone interested in the Alfa? Might Roffle....

Found an XC90 that looks OK, and is fairly local.

 

Anyone fancy taking The Alfa Of Much Lovliness off my hands? 161k miles, but runs like a fish

 

Good bits:

 

Goes like feck

Is lovely (with a polish)

Good on juice if you behave

Big history file

Recent starter motor, turbo pipe, NSF wheel bearing, Bosch battery oil and filter change

Nice stereo with line-in socket for your mp3 etc (will come with original stereo, connects with CD multichanger)

Towbar - only used to tow a smoll trailer to the tip for the last (nearly) 3 years

 

Bad bits

 

Needs other wheel bearing

Stonechips on front 

Passenger side skirt missing end

Rear bumper marked

Hi-Level brakelight doesn't work and appears to have been fixed* with Araldie (or similar)

I still haven't fixed the rear wiper

 

Anybody want to make me an offer, circa £1000? Or am I being optimistic..... Might roffle.....

Just left a deposit on an XC90 , SWMBO approved and everything, so Alfa needs to go.

 

Make me an offer, but don't take the piss OBVS, been offered £160 by WBAC, but that ain't happening, couple of blokes on the FB Alfa forum were talking in terms of £5-700.

 

Car in Grays, Essex near M25.

I’d stick two down on a roffle for that,despite the boosts goodness of my SAAB, I’m missing my 147.

My SAAB has its issues but they seem all grown up and serious compared to the frivolous errors and alarms the 147 would shit out the display at me, largely based on the prevailing wind condition or other random factors.

When I had my 75, I noticed that they'd obviously thought of such an eventuality, as this was the bank of warning lights:
 
https://i.ytimg.com/vi/tH4pdHcAHPc/maxre...
 
Not only was there a warning light to tell you that the warning lights were not working correctly (2nd from right on bottom), the top button (marked ALFA ROMEO CONTROL) would turn off the master warning light if you believed it was spurious...

Last mot (155703 miles) had oil change, supply and fit rear brake caliper, rear brake pads, CV gaiter, reset airbag light, supply and fit 2 x rear tyres 215/45/17.... £491.12

Aircon regassed and anti-bacterial treatment 7/7/17

NSF Wheel bearing done @ 144819 miles 17/6/16

New battery and NSF wishbone @ 153928miles 12/7/17

New starter motor two weeks ago £270 odd, New boost pipe 9/8/18 £233

New clutch, DMF, clutch slave @ 133371 miles 6/2/15

Belt & tensioner 133789miles 23/2/15

O/s front suspension arm and droplink @ 139246 13/8/15

New turbo fitted with MAP sensor  22/6/12

 

Lots of old MoT's original handbooks.

 

I would have no hesitation jumping in and driving to Devon, Scotchland or wherever.

 

As mentioned previously the only job at this point ios a noisy offside front wheelbearing - it's not that old (there's a bill in the folder) but apparently they're quite hard on them - They All Do That Sir.

 

I'm trying to be 100% honest, there's bound to be something I've forgotten.....

EDIT: Sometimes it syas there's no oil.... there is, it's done it about 4 times in the nigh-on three years I've had her, as confirmed by Mr Stripped-Fred, it's a cheap fix, but neither of us could be arsed. It doesn't go into limp mode or owt.

 

Alledgedly it's been chipped to 200 gee gees, but I can't find antything in the file.

Indeed it is me. I've always fancied one of these 5 pot diesels, and I'd rather get one off of here than some unknown on eBay.

It might mean I have to shift the V6...great car and lovely to drive but multiple Alfa ownership is probably beyond me. I may still keep it though.

Well bought Bramz7. Worth cleaning the map sensor. That's what I did when I first got it and it helped with the smoke under acceleration. It has been remapped. I remember seeing the invoice somewhere. I think he said 210bhp but I didn't believe that.

I travelled from Leicester to somewhere in Norfolk, if I remember correctly. Dark night, raining and I had no negotiating power as he knew I needed to get home. He had spent a lot of money on it and I think the relationship had soured. I enjoyed owning it. The ride is a bit firm and this was wearing after a while but I am getting older now. Lovely interior.

I hope you enjoy the car. It does go well, lots of torque, and it felt a bit different to the usual. Just watch the lack of steering lock in a small car park as this can be a bit embarrassing!

Well bought... Had a sit in this earlier in the year and it's really nice. Shame I can't say the same about the boring bastard owner who wouldn't stop banging on about how great it was.
