Hi people. First of all thanks for reading the topic.
Yesterday I bought a second hand alfa romeo 1.6 twinspark with 180000 km from 2002. Everything was fine when i did a testride. Also all the other info semed to be right.
But then… I drove home from the cardealer (around 80 km) when i noticed a tikking noise. Then when i try to accelerate I notice I clould not accelerate as fast as in the beginning of the ride. Also when i was driving on the highway and wanted to switch gear, i had a rpm drop when i pressed my clutch (keeping the clutch pressed the rpm would drop rapid and the engine would stall). Als white smoke came out of the exhaust.
Temperature of the engine was fine (around 90 degree). I checked the oil color, and nothing weird. So i guess its not the head gasket.
My friend thinks it is the injection cable. When dissconnecting 2 of the 4 cables there is no sound difference. Disconnecting the other two the engine stops.
Here is the link of a video when i try to start the car.
I hope someone can help me and tell what is wrong or what i can try. If you need more info just tell me, and I will provide the information.
Thanks in advance!!
