Alfa 164 - Uno

Post by Uno » Thu Jan 04, 2018 9:22 pm

Hello community,

The attached picture is my actual Alfa Romeo. This one has driven 370`000km - unfortunately, the mechanic told me that is not recommend to drive it any longer. The car had since a while oil in the coolant, which is not good but not a huge problem. However, the last time the mechanic saw the car he saw whitish, yellowish exhaust fumes and that is a huge problem. Because I would like to keep it. Eventually I would like to overhaul the engine. This is a future project - now I am not skilled enough...
Well this is not the reason for a more active life in the forums. I had the chance to buy the more or less exact same car again. This one has some small defects, which I started to solve. Sonner or later I would like to come back with some questions 
The Nickname I have chosen because my very first car was a Uno Turbo - if you grow up that one leads directly to Alfa (at least in my case).

I wish a happy new year

Hello All,

And thank you for your welcome.

Well this car has the 3l 12v engine with 132KW, 2959ccm inside.

Actually the space at home is missing where I could disassemble the engine from the car. And the first time I guess I need some support.

The fiat Uno is still a good car too. I still use one to go to work and back home :-)

Regards Swen
