    Hi everyone! Just gonna put one thing out there. I am not mechanically minded in the slightest, so I suspect that I will be relying to this Forum from here on in! If anyone reading this has any advice or tips for a first time Alfa buyer please hit me up! I have just bought my first Alfa Romeo...

    Hi all have recently bought a black Saloon 159 and would like to know which de cat pipe I need I have seen a few different ones Autolusso sell one for a 147/gt/159 and I’ve seen another one for sale by jtd performance but it’s a different shape to Autolusso one so which one would be correct...

    A long shot, but maybe worth a try; I have bought a brand new set of original pistons for an Alfa Romeo 33 16V engine, but I failed to notice that the matching piston rings were not included. The pistons are first oversize – 87.2 mm. The Challenge is that I cannot find any source to buy...

    Hello Since I repaired the engine of my 33 1.7 16V, I´m having problems with it. I opened some topics here in the past but haven´t solved the problem. The problem is the engine "pings" or "knocks", doesn´t have the power it had and always works hotter them normal, and as mutch as it gets...

    My turbo makes some odd chirruping noises (someone described it as a dolphin chattering) when its spooling up, I've been told its because the vanes are sticking and I need to take the pipes off and fill it with Mr Muscle to loosen them off, how much of a task is this? anyone got a H2? - thanks

    Hi Alfisti...! I need your help. I want to buy my first car and I'm split between the 33 QV 1.7 facelift and phase 2 156 1.6 TS as these are in my budget and I love both....I kinda like the 33 more but the 156 seems safer. Also top version 33 seems nicer than lowest version 156.Can you tell me...

    I’m still not completely convinced by the cooling on my 156 Sportwagon 1.9 16V JTD. If I let the engine just idle and build up temperature the gauge inside the car goes up past 90 and 110, and I chicken out before the fans switch on. Yet driving the car around it appears to behave quite well...
  11. Introduce Yourself
    Hi all, from the South Coast of the UK. I'm in a village called Clanfield, just North of Portsmouth in Hampshire. Joined the forum a few days ago when I picked up a 1995 156 Sportwagon Veloce 1.9 16V JTD. I've brought it as something to tinker with, different to my Landrover and old Ducati...

    Well, it's been fun. almost 6 years of ownership of my first Alfa Romeo. Some ups, some downs. I still remember driving home after I bought her and smiling all the way. Such a great car to drive. But, it is time to move on and time for someone to buy their Alfa Romeo Advert is here...

    Hi guys! Pardon me if this has been asked before, I've searched the internet for an answer but I couldn't find one. I'm planning to change my timing belt, serpentine belt and water pump on my 2005 GT JTD. With the power of AutoData YouTube and a lot of reading I've got the step by step...

    Hi All, I have been offered a remapped ECU and immobiliser module quite cheap. If I swap these what do I need to do to my original key fob? Do I just need to swap the transponder to the new one or is it a lot more complicated? Thanks, BM
  15. Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    To sort out this UK 1995/6 engine, I need to read the OBD 3 pin. I have cabled up to an ELM437 but nowhere can I find software, hardware or the protocol to give readings successfully. The engine has failed MOT on very irregular high emissions, has a lumpy idle when cold with timing issues...
  16. Tuning & Upgrades
    Hi there, I have a mildly tuned (decated, remapped, suspension upgrades etc) Fiat Bravo 1.9 16v 150 mjet which is in need of a new turbo. According to Eper it is the same standard turbo as a 147 / 156 / GT / Stilo. Is anyone recommended to supply a hybrid with uprated seals - ideally on an...

    Decided not to fix the old girl - and stick to the Z4M for the commute - so it's now on eBay :grumpy: Rather sell it for spares than take the £178 I've been offered as scrap.
