  4. 147 1.6TS thermostat - replacement & guide?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I noticed yesterday that the thermostat in the other half's 147 appears to be stuck open. When driving normally it doesn't go over 75C, when parked it rises to 90C and stays there, then when driving drops back down. This implies it's stuck open if I'm right? I can see EuroCarParts...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, need to change the oil in the 147 sometime in the next month. My other half thinks putting the cheapest oil in is best - which would be Millers Trident 5W-40 fully synth @ £26.99 from Opie Oils (including filter) I've recommended she pays a little bit more and gets Motul 8100 X-Cess 5W-40...

    Hello everyone! I come here, once again, to request your precious help to solve a rather big issue with my Alfa.

  9. 147 1.6TS Motor Control System Failure

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    First of all, I've been advised to give up on this car several times, but it has sentimental value and I still like to use it locally instead of my Mondeo diesel, which is for business use (20,000 mainly motorway miles per year). The Alfa has just failed its MOT on a couple of things; mainly...
  10. Aircon failure - 2007 Alfa 147 1.6TS

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The aircon stopped working earlier this year and I took the car to a garage for diagnosis. The man said the compressor had packed up and, due to the age of the car, I decided to take a punt on a second hand replacement from eBay. The man fitted it and re-gassed the system and it worked – for...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys. Thinking of getting a 156. Have come across a cheap 1.6 2002 with updated dash and 55000 miles. I had my heart set on a 1.8 but this seems a great deal. Is the 1.6 noticeably lacking in power compared to the 1.8?
