    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    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...

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...

  9. 1.9 16V JTD Temperature Sender.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    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...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    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
  14. 2.0 T S 16v series 1 in 916s Spider

    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...
