    I'm looking for a new home for my Alfa 159 1750Tbi SW Ti (2010, 10 Plate) with 108k, along with the extensive spares package in the form a 159 2.0 Jdtm (2010 59 Plate) for 230k and a seized turbo. I've got the possibility of a company Tesla, and with tax rules changing this could be...

    We are going to be selling my wife’s 159 Sportwagon as she needs a tow car to move her horses around. We have owned the car since 2016. It is a very nice car with 79k miles on it. It has been maintained by Alfaworkshop as with my other Alfa’s. Anyone interested please PM me. Hard to gauge value...

    is it possible to remove the baffle from the standard 159 1750tbi back box to make the car a little louder or any other cheap ways to actually give the car a sound

    Hi folks. Anyone know what the correct battery size for the 159 1759tbi is?! I've just had to swap out my battery as the last one was a dud, but the one provided by Halfords and recommended by their app is a terrible fit for the tray. It's far too short and it's a stretch to get the positive...

    Hi all, My introduction to the rollercoaster of joy and despair that is Alfa ownership continues. Just undertook a long drive to Ireland and back in my new 159 tbi sportwagon. It didn't miss a beat throughout the trip. However, went to start it up this morning for the first time since the trip...

    Hi everyone After some admiring from afar, I bought a 159TBi Ti in December with just under 70k on the clock. I adore the thing, but it's been in the garage since Jan 29th with an oil leak: there's a crack in the oil segregator (part number 55215132) which means that it's leaking oil pretty...

    So, I've had my sportwagon for less than two weeks, and yesterday the power steering failed. It happen quite suddenly, starting with a whine on a long drive, building up to a constant whine even in straight line driving (changing pitch with the engine revs) and soon developing into a grinding...

    I’ve tried to go into a little more detail with this guide than I usually do, in the hope people who lack experience are willing to give it a try - it’s a relatively easy job, that can be done with a pretty basic tool kit. The only specialist tool I used was a pair of “clic r” pliers...

    Hi all, brand new Alfa owner here after taking delivery of a 159 1750TBi last Tuesday. She's been a bit of a dazzler. I have noticed one thing though that I'm perplexed by: sometimes, after driving for a bit, I will hear a ticking/clicking noise from approx. the passenger side of the car when I...

    Hi, I am periodically checking fault codes in my Giulietta QV and yesterday noticed fault code persisted in the ECU. The error code is P0191 and descriptions says: " Fuel high pressure signal". From what I read so far, the issue might be caused by hp fuel pump, fuel pressure regulator...

    I have recently bought a 33K 2013 Cloverleaf. Very pleased with the look and performance of the car . However as I get used to the noises of the engine I recon it has a diesel type tone. In years gone by I had a 145 Cloverleaf which certainly did not make such noises. ( though I did have a...

    My 1750 Tbi is cursed. It was/is?? a good one, I had Ned @ Autolusso give her the once over at a Sat clinic. Since, done 10k, and I’ve done lots of preventative stuff – turbo feed pipe filter, replaced discs, changed both oils etc when I bought it (though I didn’t bother with the engine oil...

    I've been running my 61 plate 159 1750TBi Ti SW for nearly 4 years now and have done just short of 87K miles in it, it's been pretty good to be honest and relatively trouble free in my tenure. Had a small issue with it being reluctant to start if I'd left it for over 4 days or so, ruled out the...

    I know there are a bunch of threads about this exact same thing, but they all seem to change direction halfway through and fail to definitively resolve the original question, so let me have a stab at it myself! Hopefully some of you local lads can help with real-world experiences. What I don’t...

    Hi guys, After lusting after one, I managed to find and purchase a gorgeous 159 ti a few months ago. Late 2012 model, low mileage, fastidiously maintained... all that good stuff. Anyway, the car has been an absolute joy to drive since then except for a seemingly random and innocuous loss of...

    Hi, Does anybody know where I can get a new or re conditioned engine from for my cloverleaf 1750tbi? Water damage!

    TBI Turbo oil issues In view of the amount of Turbo's that we are getting asked for, for the 1750TBI engine, we are recommending the following items are checked and changed if needed. 1). Oil turbo feed pipe. A lot of the earlier models had a feed pipe with no heat shield. The pipe runs behind...
