I hesitate.
After all I have a Q4 and they are pretty rare. I really would like to get the proper engine back in, that is the 230 horsepower one. :wink:

I am worried about the gearbox attachement.
I have no idea whether the flange geometry for the six-speed Getrac gear is the same as the five-speed one.

3 Liter engine of Lancia Kappa versus 164 Q4

To repeat it: My Q4 engine broke down and I need another Q4 engine (3l V6 24v 170 KW). My search brought up a 3l V6 24v engine from a Lancia Kappa, which is known to be a "reduced" Alfa engine. This candidate has been altered already to the big air intake and is running well. I need expert help to a...

Re: The work never ends

I cannot rebuild this engine, since the engine block itself is damaged. Having it rebuilt by this German Alfa specialist is far too expensive for me. Therefore I am looking now for a used engine, either as a separate purchase or as part of a damaged or scrapped Q4. That search will take some time I ...

No, I checked the markings and all was still in order.
It was a brocken valve for sure

@munition
Taking ther engine out - fairly easy
Install refurbished engine - not so easy, where to get one from?

Correct Helli, The heads can be taken off in the car. I will post some pictures of it. This is a 3,5 Q4 so with slightly bigger lining than you have. Thanks Arjen! Is it really necessary to take the firewall of (as can be seen in your picture)? I didn't know that there are 3,5 l engines for the Q4....

It happened about 200 km after passing the 200 000 km mark. The engine of my Q4 died. :( I was running with about 5000 revs for some time over an empty German highway, when suddenly the revs dropped to a much lower, but constant value. Immediately afterwards the car dragged a large white (vapor) clo...

Why do you want to change to a different type of oil?
Because just before I got the car the wrong type was put in.
Due to the leak repair (loss of a lot of fluid it is a good occasion to do that.

Re: How to empty the power steering/Viscomatic hydraulic sys

One additional question:

the Viscomatic has a filter in the accumulator block.
The part number from EPER is 5894238.

I could not find a supplyer for this.
Are there alternative types available?
I read in another thread (some years ago) that Alfisti has a supply of them. Is that still true?
