    I am afraid to report that I have an issue developing with my G. There is a knock when you first engage the clutch and a couple more smaller ones as you first pull away. Also sometimes when you start the car you can hear the knock just as the engine begines to fire. I am worried that I am...

    I'm hearing weird noises on my 2.0 JTDM 140 2011 65k miles. Sounds like scratching/shaking/rattling. Not Diesel engine rattle! Only hear it at low speeds when accelerating in 2nd or 3rd gear. Only when engine is warm. Doesn't happen when engine is cold. Sounds like it's at front right...

    The 147 had it's 140 000km service at Alfia Auto yesterday. It took 2 days because they had to get a new water sensor for the diesel filter that had been damaged and glued back together during a previous service:furious: Clayton and Giovanni were very helpful and kept me updated as to the...

    hi all, been having an issue that is slowly getting worse, on part throttle I get boost building then after a few seconds, the boost fades and power drops, then builds back up again and a puff of diesel smoke appears (when the boost magically arrives again) On full throttle doesn't seem to be...

    Hi everyone, I have a question I'm hoping you experts will be able to answer for me. I want to increase the power on my 2011 giulietta and although I know exactly where I'm going to start upgrade wise I just can't seem to find any solid data on what boost the turbo can reliably give. I have the...

    Hi, This is my first Alfa, had it for just over a year without issue and I'm the second UK owner from new with 80,000 miles currently on the clock. I've noticed that occasionally when I'm in DNA mode and I put my foot down (joining from a slip road etc) the car seems quite slow to respond to...

    Hi All, Had a slightly amusing error code this morning. Well I say amusing, no error codes are amusing, but I liked the way it was worded: P2563 - Turbocharger Boost Control Position Sensor Circuit: Implausible Signal I like the idea of the ECU being like "what?" Anyway, any ideas where to...

    Picked up the 'wagon from the garage last Thursday and left it overnight at the work carpark. Heading home on Friday evening. Stopped at the Chinese takeaway. Refused to restart :( Called the missus to collect me in the GT and started fiddling about with electrical connections. When I connected...

    I've had my JTDm 140 for about 3 months now and am still struggling to accelerate smoothly and briskly through the gears whilst riding the torque curve. However I do it I always seem to hit a trough before it starts pulling again. Is it turbo lag, do I need to rev higher before changing? Not...

    Has anyone had their giulietta 2.0 140bhp remapped? I can see lots of threads on the 170 engine variant and even some 1.6 105bhp but nothing on the 140. I'd love to hear people's experiences :)
  20. Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    I'm having some serious issues with my JTD 16V 156. Over the last few weeks the Mrs reported a sudden loss of power which occurred when accelerating in high gear (4th or more). This could only be rectified by dropping down a gear and going fairly hard on the throttle. Last week I cleaned the EGR...
