159

  1. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Has anyone tried to swap the 2.2 jts from the Alfa Romeo spider 939/946 and put the 1750 turbo motor? What will be the cost for something like that ? Is it even possible? Do they share similar parts? Is the wiring / ecu different?

    Hi I'm onto my 2nd alfa (159) and have a few concerns / issues. Engine seems to be very noisy on start up and if pushed (live in hilly area and last 1.5 mile of journey home is uphill) only way to describe is like an old transit. Occasionally get an almost grinding sound for a second when...

    Does anyone know where you can buy the 159 ti alloys but the 18 inch ones (not the 19). Also will I need spacers along with other adjustments to put them on a Giulietta and could I get away with not declaring the change on my insurance? Any help would be really appreciated Cheers!

    I’m having a check engine light (2.2 JTS) regarding to throttle drive. Got my throttle body and electrical contact cleaned, cleared the code, light however comes back, then replaced with a spare throttle body that I have, still engine light appears, next I replaced the accelerator pedal unit...

    Hi everyone, I am trying my luck in finding TI Sideskirts for the 159, perhaps someone is looking for selling them, or at least knows someone who could be selling them? Also, a replica would be ok, too, I have found a few pages where they sell them, but I'm not sure of the quality and those...

    Hello, The display between the speedo and the rev counter on my 159 sw is starting to misbehave. There is a cluster of pixels staying on all the time and it is getting bigger. I've seen LCD displays being sold as spares but I am unable to find any information on replacing it. Can anyone tell...

    I recently purchased a replacement intake / exhaust camshaft solenoid from this supplier. After having fitted the new exhaust I noticed the port is different to my original exhaust solenoid. Original New Every forum or site I've visited indicates the New exhaust solenoid I purchased is...

    Hi everyone, I have a diesel Alfa 159 2008 Quatronic. I have a turbo problem since I fix engine water plug crack 1 week ago. When I first start my engine, after 4-5 km run, turbo losses power and closed, then my car wont able to run more than 50 km/h. After that, I stop my car and re-start...

    Hi! My 159 (2010 2.0) has been leaking oil for sometime now but I never really paid much attention to it since the oil indicator is always full. Recently I notice an increase on the oil spots on my parking floor so I got worried even though the oil indicator is at the max level still. Do you...

    Can the twin exhaust from a 2.4 159 fit on a 147?

    So after just over a month of owning the red workhorse, my 159 SW started to lose steering fluid. Topped it up and took her to my nearest Alfa specialist. After seeing her on the ramp and turning the steering wheel the steering rack joints were dripping oil with each turn. Been quoted for a...

    Hi Everyone, Im hoping that someone may be able advise on what to do. I have a 2.4 diesel which has recently picked up a really load screch. It started off as a bit of a whine, however after pulling away from some traffic lights there was a bit of an unfamiliar noise followed by a lose of...

    So i bought a 159 and outside temperature is showing dashes, I assume thats also why ac is acting up, I see everyone is saying that those sensors are in side view mirrors but i oppened both of them and didint find the senser, for that matter even the wiring was only for heated mirrors and mirror...

    So my Brera’s driver’s side’s wing mirror is malfunctioning. It doesn’t fold in, but if manually folded in, it can fold out eventually despite taking longer than the other side, as well as making a weird click noise. It feels like a gear in its folding mechanism has worn out. I went to check...

    Hi guys, I currently owned a 159 3.2 JTS V6 with a 40km mileage on the odo. I need recommendation on where to find supplier of spare parts (that has a regular shipping of Parts bound to Qatar. Thank you in advanced. Cheers:)
  16. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all, this is one of the first things I thought about doing as I quite like the look of the 159/Brera steering wheel compared to the Giulietta's. I can see that the airbags are very similar however the connections are different, so I'm thinking why not unscrew the airbag from the Giulietta's...

    Hello Alfisti. I'm keen to get Alfa Romeo 159 2.0 with 170HP with TI trim, sedan. First of all, it's so hard to find any available at the moment, like there's just a few across all websites that I followed in Europe. Second, my question, about TI trim, I was reading some UK forums and they said...

    Hi guys! Currently I'm driving 159 2007 2.4jtdm q-tronic sedan. The car is in a pretty good condition despite its high mileage. It has all of the usual things done to the engine - dpf off, swirl off and remapped. Refurbished gearbox and a new head. Nice performance, runs good, a bit laggy...

    Was wondering what the best routes would be to maximise my MPG? I have looked at remaps and they seem to offer 10-15% increase. But at only 35-37 mpg tops on this car, the remap doesnt seem to be really worth the while or money. I realise things like tyre pressure and average speed may increase...

    First 2 weeks of owning my 2.4 210 sportwagon and I’ve enjoyed the car a lot (over 2000 miles already). I’ve noticed some slight issues however. On harsh acceleration above 3.5k it puts out a fair bit of black smoke, and from lower revs on moderate to harsh acceleration there’s a quite high...
