Failing finding another engineer, ask your engineer to contact Alpha technical helpline.

so why not just give him your possible answer instead of him racking up bills on another clueless engineer, I would be thinking heat exchanger

Because me actual other recommendation would be to take it out and put a Vaillant in its place.

Which is fine but please don’t give boiler fixes on open forum no matter how high level

Ok sorry op I’ve not seen or diagnosed your boiler I’ve took a guess at a possible answer, advised what your engineer could check and if correct your probably cheaper with new boiler but doesn’t need to be Vaillant as advised
