I am looking for the second car. I have never found any comparison of these two cars Alfa 147 vs Mazda 3 (version I).
I know that here is Alfas site, but I am not sure that I should have two Alfas in one house (the one is just AR147 1.9 JTD 120 HP with DPF) ;)
Could you help me to...
I've been investigating a little about the turbo that equips the Alfa Romeo Giulietta 1.6 JTD-m2 120hp Euro 6.
According to ePER and based on my car's VIN, the OEM part number is 55266228. Looking at this picture bellow for example, it seems to be a BorgWarner BV38.
My knowledge on...
This relates to an engine in a Bravo. Someone I know has this issue. It produces black smoke at the same time.
A code read revealed P0101, P0111 & P0237.
These are intermittent signal issues for MAF, inlet air temperature and boost pressure.
Any ideas? Is there something obvious which has...
Hello, Im thinking about buying this car. I've looked at different webpages for reviews, criticism and the overall impression I get is that this is a decent car.
But since I'm not an expert I would like some extra assistance... I would really appreciate all the help I can get:) see the link...
So everybody knows my long thread with all the issues (link here)
Still unresolved. Though now it becomes worst, which might lead to help me resolve it.
Car is been:
2. New Rotors/pads, brakelines and fluid
3. New tires (balanced noumerous times)
4. I tried Alfata's...
My Alfa 147 uses the engine in the title. What I want to know is, can I transfer over the 2.0L throttle body, and inlet manifold easily. Dont want to install the 2.0L head due to my engine only recently got 50k miles on a 10 yr old lump.
I already made a thread about this topic but I'm still not convinced how to think about this issue...
In short: In the first three gears in the D-mode the turbo-diagramm just goes up to 4 lines. There is no difference between low rpm or high rpm, it just goes up to maximum 4 lines. In the...
i have Alfa 159 2007 which sometimes produces strange noise. Here in the video it starts more noticeable around 12 sec. To me sounds like broken fan. It comes from left front of the vehicle
This noise is appearing when accelerating on 2,3 and 4 gear.
The driveshaft needs to be...
I'm off to the Ligurian coast and Lake Orta soon and I needed some poolside reading, so I was browsing the magazines in the newsagents. Evo has the tyre test and Giulia Quadrifoglio Group Test and What Car has the Giulietta 1.6 group test-two Alfa tests in the same month! That doesn't happen...
I noticed a rattling sound when switching into third on low rpms (2000-3000). It happens regardless of load, and cant be reproduced with letting the RPMs fall and rise again, only with gear changes.
I had no idea this is the knocking noise, I thought it was something completely irrelevant. I...
Hi have purchased this as I want to update the jvc stereo that is in my car. As this apple play is double din, can I use the fitting cage that comes with it or should I buy one specific for the GT? Also I believe I need a steering stalk adapter but there a different ones. Anyone know which lead...
Am loosing some performance recently on my Bella and decided to check the spark plugs, dont have the service record so not sure if they have ever been replaced, also not sure if the mileage hasnt been tampered. Any suggestions to check, since i heard its better not to remove the...
Are the front calipers on the TB 120 cars the same as any other models? I know the 155 has the bigger brembo's, think the 95 has smaller than the 120? The one's I'm after have Bosch ZOH 57/26 stamped on them.
What about the MA engine cars? Or any other cars?
May need a front drivers caliper as...
Looking at trading in my '08 Spider 2.2 LE for a used 1.4TB MultiAir 170.
There seems to be more than a few cases of these multiair units giving up the will to live after only a few years.
Is the 1.4 TB 120bhp likely to be a better buy reliability wise?
Anybody's thoughts or advice is appreciated.
I know there have been a load of threads about this subject already but its all very confusing to me.
I want a filter that makes the car sound abit more “raspy”. Don’t really want an exhausts as I don’t want that deep chavy sound you hear on Novas.
I have seen some videos of Mitos with Cone...
I am looking for a good deal on a guilietta and have settled on the veloce petrol.trouble is I haven't had the chance to drive either the 120 or 170bhp as the dealer near me (80miles away) was only interested in pushing the 2litre diesel. Would anybody know if the multiair 170 is the way...
Anyone knows why this is happening when starting cold engine?
AR 145 1.6 TS engine idle problem - YouTube
It's a CF2, 1.6 TS, 1998, plastic rocker cover. It always does this when the engine is cold, when warm, it starts normally, as does in the second attempt right after it dies. MAF is 4...
Im going to change my 147 , 1.6 , 120 and take the plunge for a MITO
Now what one to go for and why?
Petrol or diesel?
Petrol 120, 135 or 155
diesel 1.3 or 1.6 ?
Can you let me know what would be the best purchase as I have £9 k to spend.
Recently i started to have problems with my Alfa 147:
1 - When i accelerate the engine stutters and after a while it just kicks in and drives normally.
2 - A few days ago it showed Motor Control System Failure while I was driving and making a turn. Flashed the warning once and never again...
