    Hello guys! I owe an Alfa 159 TBI which was remaped to 235HP already when I bought. It is in daily use since I bought (1 year)and at the beginning I've experienced a turbo pressure drop to 0 once in a month when I accelerated in the 4/5th gear. I remaped the ECU to 253HP/399Nm. 2 month after...

    Hi, My catalytic converter seems to glow red hot after fast-paced driving. I'm not so sure if it should be red? It's not like it's glowing between gaps under the hood, but when I open it and look behind the manifold cover the cat it's red (during the night). No errors. New oxygen sensor (first...

    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...

    I have a recurring engine management fault- it reads 'P2237/$1 0 O2 Sensor positive current control circuit/open bank 1 Sensor 1 I changed the upper O2/ Lambda sensor (the one just below the manifold) but the fault keeps recurring, and l keep clearing it. Any thoughts anyone?

    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...

    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...

    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.
  8. Alfa 159, Brera & 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...
  9. Alfa 159, Brera & 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...
  10. 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...

    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

    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...

    Looks interesting if anyone’s looking
  14. Alfa 159, Brera & 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...
  15. 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?
  16. 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.
  17. Alfa 159, Brera & 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
  18. Alfa 159, Brera & 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.

    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...

    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...
