    Alfa 164 & 166
    how would I change the rear 3 plugs on this?
  2. Tempted to return to 164 ownership...

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Looking for another 164 Cloverleaf I can't shake the idea of returning to 164 ownership. It's only been a couple of years since I last owned one but I've had three different Alfas since and as much as I like them, I've come to realise that they're just not quite what I want. I really liked my...
  3. 164 torque setting

    Alfa 164 & 166
    anyone know the correct spark plug torque for a 3.0 24v 164?
  4. Classic Alfa Romeo 164 in funny comparison with a Tesla!?

    General Alfa Discussion
    Watch this crazy comparison. One guy made comparison with an old Alfa Romeo 164 with a V4 engine from 1994, with a Tesla model 3. What a great quality the old Alfa had. :rofl:
  5. Is this a 164 3.0 24v cam tensioner?

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I found a couple of these in the bottom of a parts box. I think they're the tensioners for the early 3.0 24v used in the 164, but I'm not 100% sure. Anyone know for sure if these are 164 tensioners? And if so, how do I test if they still work OK? Both seem to spin freely but I can't work out...
  6. 164 misfire

    Alfa 164 & 166
    hi, after fitting a new crank sensor, everything seemed ok, but the engine misfires pretty bad when on the move, only when up to running temperature though? but never cuts out and idles fine., although the sensor was bought for a 164 3.0 24v , could it be that it's the wrong one? does anyone...
  7. 164 air filter

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Anyone know a supplier who actually has stock for a first series V6? And I am still looking for a ROS internal door handle?
  8. 164 3.0 speedo

    Alfa 164 & 166
    hi, the speedo on my 164 always packs up when the engine gets hot, (above 90) after being in traffic, but always starts again when cooled off? what could it be?
  9. 164 dead pixels on display

    Alfa 164 & 166
    hi. is there any way to fix the dead pixels on the 164 3.0 dash display?, nearly half of mine have gone out, of course it looks pretty bad, the clock can't be seen at all, and the heater increments aren't all there on both sides.
  10. 164 Mk1 rear brake compensator valve

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Well, it looks like mine is leaking! I had hoped it was a dodgy connection on the reservoir float, but no, I really was losing brake fluid... So I think I need to find a new one... Would anyone have a source they could recommend? 9Or a part number I could search for) please? So far, I've...
  11. 164 pollen filter

    Alfa 164 & 166
    anyone know if the 164 has an interior pollen filter, and where is it situated?
  12. 12V 164 engines?

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Just playing the field at the moment but does anyone have a 164 12v engine they would be willing to part with, there are none on the bay right now and my mechanic says it might be worth looking for one as hes not yet figured out if my 164 has a blown head gasket or a cracked block, if he gets...
  13. 164 24v wont start

    Alfa 164 & 166
    ok, 1995 164 3.0 24v, turns over but not starting, not even trying. tested the red stripe relay and the fuel pump relay next to it, and they are ok. any where else I should be checking? fuses relays etc thanks in advance
  14. 164 trunk release

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Electric trunk release isn’t working on 1991 164 (USA model) and I’ve been tracking down the reason for that. There isn’t any connection between relay pin 85 (in the trunk) and pin 17 on the ARCU. How is this connected and what are those connectors found to the right of the glovebox?
  15. New 164 owner.

    Introduce Yourself
    Hi all new member here. I have just acquired a 1989 164 ten years on the road and twenty years in a lock up. the body and floor are almost as new the rest not so good but all in all it will survive. As i have no alfa contacts i may well become a bit of a nuisance over the next few months or...
  16. 164 oil pan removal in place

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I haven't found any real confirmation that the oil pan on 3.0 12V 164 would be removable while engine in place. I took a look under the car and it sure looks plausible, has somebody tried to remove it?
  17. 164 Coolant Temp Sensors

    Alfa 164 & 166
    On my 3.0 12V the engine temp gauge isn't working and I traced the problem to be on my sensor. Now that 60540639 isn't available anymore and I didn't find one anywhere, I have to look for alternatives. How about 60513058? How and why is that different from the original one? I see 639 is a 115°C...

    Alfa 164 & 166

    Alfa 164 & 166 Anyone here? Not a usual visitor to this part of the forum, but as a fellow alfa fan !
  20. 164 needs new windscreen

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Just to put a cap on a bad weekend I got a stone chip. Drove up to Leicester for a car show on Sunday, needless to say it was a no go thanks to the weather. But she ran beautifully with the refurbished clutch cylinder doing its thing on some very nice (If a little damp) roads as the gearbox...
