  1. 159 1750 TBi, messy rattle when warm

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    SOLVED: 159 1750 TBi, messy rattle when warm Dear specialists, During my holiday in France it seems my car developed a messy rattle during coasting and light throttle. The noise is only there when the engine is warmed up! Air conditioning setting has no influence. The problem is I can hear it...

  3. 1750 TBi oil filter housing leakage

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi folks, I noticed my TBi started marking its spot. It used to have a leak at the heat exchanger, but it was replaced fully and serviced at the same time somewhere last year. I took the sump "guard" off and it was a big mess. Seems the filter housing is leaking a little on the driveshaft...
  4. 1750 GTV Wipers

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Gents, my wipers have stopped working. They don't work on the switch or wash/wipe. Which fuse should they be connected too? Does anyone have a diagram of the standard fuse layout that they could share please? I'm guessing it could be a connection somewhere so thought I'd start with that before...
  5. 1750 TBI race engine

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Just looking up the stats for the new W Series Race car, turns out they are using an Italian race car ,the Tatuus F3 T-318 which uses the Alfa 1750 TBI pushing out 270BHP, just goes to show what a good engine it is.
  6. Coolant tank on 1750 TBi

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi guys, This weekend I discovered the L-shaped connector for one of the return pipes cracked. I've already ordered the updated version with the brass insert (which as I've seen around here is also prone to cracking), and I was wondering where does this hose that's unique to the TBis come...
  7. 159 TBi P1135 - preheating resistance 1 above catalyzer

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi All, So my first post here. I've had a look through the forum but couldn't find the info I need on this code. I am getting the "P1135 preheating resistance 1 above catalyzer" engine management come on. It's been cleared twice so far. Car drives fine, however, the mpg has dropped to around...
  8. Need help of 1750 owners

    Alfa Giulietta
    My 1750 Veloce is currently at the dealers to have some problems solved, and one of these problems is that I never get full boost reported on the boost gauge when in dynamic mode. This is the display in the dashboard between the speedo and rev counter, they are saying that it doesn't go to the...
  9. 1750 GTV Gearbox removal - support engine?

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hello all!!! A quick question.. I need to remove the gearbox from 1970 1750 GTV. A friend has mentioned that I'll need to support the rear of the engine, however, the 2 workshop manuals I have don't mention anything about supporting the engine. Can anyone confirm please? Thanks in advance! Dan
  10. 1750 TBi - Does the turbo normally make a noise?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I am driving a 159 with the TBi engine, the stereo has just packed in which is allowing me to pick up on all sorts of noises! When accelerating hard in 2nd gear I can hear the turbo quite distinctively, it sounds like a mini supercharger! There is the increasing whine you would normally hear...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    So I’ve a newish turbo fitted, I’m getting sporadic over boost issues. I’m suspecting a vac leak. I have to hand the old wastegate. Can anyone talk me through checking the vac hoses. I have a mity vac, but modern cars are a bit of a mystery...
  13. 1750 TBI - Milky Oil Filler

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, new to the Giulietta and looking to purchase (a good black manual TBI is hard to find). I have seen a few but the nicest has a very milky filler cap and oil was changed only 230 miles ago. The coolant is spotless. Is this common on this engine or is it “walk away” time?
  14. Can i use the new alu 1750 in my 2012 qv

    Alfa Giulietta
    I was wondering if any one has ever changed the first type 1.7 tbi for the newer all aluminium 1750 engine. I can see some external differences, but other than that most parts look the same. I would like to know if i can use the new 240hp tbi to replace my broken 235hp 1750 engine.
  15. M32 Gearbox - 159 1750 Tbi 200

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, What's the M32 box like in a 159 TBI 200? Is it any more (or less!) reliable with the petrol engine (ie. lower torque) than with the diesels? I'm getting my 159 on Sunday. What sort of preventative maintenance do I need to do on the gearbox to ensure it's as reliable as it can be? Thanks
  16. Wizard back boxes on a 1750 tbi

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Anyone got them? The straight through pipes that delete the rear silencers. Are they sporting? Or are they oppressive? I’d like a touch more sound when giving it’s some beans but not a droney cruising sound... something similar to the wife’s standard Mini Cooper s would be ideal.
  17. 130 tooth flywheel from a 2000 on a 1750 engine, issues?

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    The seller has been very transparent but its come to light that the Berlina I’m buying has a 130 tooth flywheel from a 2000 and not a 110 tooth one that a 1750 should. There was a non starting issue which pointed to the starter which was rebuilt and didn’t fix the issue but I’ve realised that...
  18. 1750 Electric fan conversion

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I've pulled out the radiator this evening to change the water pump, and it occurs to me that there is plenty of room to fit an electric fan in front of the radiator and do away with the crude plastic mechanical fan. I'm guessing a lot of you will have done this? Is Revotec the way to go? I...
  19. GQV 1750 Cambelt Nightmare - Desperate!

    South Africa
    Hi 3 - 4 months ago my Giulietta went in for a cambelt change,she went in a 100% car but came out a complete nightmare. Grossly underpowered, if you try to drive hard then the check engine light comes on - P0240, if you put her in D and accelerate then immediately the check engine light is on -...
  20. Oil in plug 'oles 1750 tbi

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Changed the plugs on my 159 1750tbi and the #3 and #4 recesses were awash with oil-the #3 plug was pretty much submerged. I cleaned it all out but the #3 is building up again. Can anyone tell me what is likely to be leaking to cause this? I thought rocker cover gasket but seeing a picture of...
