  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, So my Airbag sensor died, probably due to a dying battery on startup. Lots of weird clicking noises and the light never went out after changing the battery. cant connect to it via diag software. Been trying the local scrapyards, but all the older 156s have long since been turned into metal...
  2. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi All, Well, I was doing so well. Removed the front shocks from one side. Turret bolts came out without shearing. Spring compressed without tears. It wasn't too dreadful. However the new ones I had ready to fit are the Ph1/2 type with no bolt plate fitted for the PH3 anti roll bar links to...

    I've got a 1996 GTV with the CF1 2.0TS engine. It's developed an issue where it loses power when it gets up to operating temperature. When it's cold, it accelerates fine, but once the engine is warmed up, it loses power. Eventually in 1st gear it takes 4-5 seconds to reach 6k rpm. Foot to...

  9. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi to all, I've been deliberating/stalling for nearly a year as to what to do with my 2001 2.0TS Lusso GTV. I've had the car since 2012 and it's been great fun but sadly failed on rust underneath "Nearside Rear Seat belt anchorage prescribed area is excessively corroded Floor . (5.2.6) and...

    i have managed to remove the airbag ecu. by all accounts i should be able to plug in a kkl lead with a 3 pin adapter into a port to read the codes and hopefully clear them. but for the life of me i cannot find it. i thought it might be on the ecu but its not nor can i find anything nearby to its...

  12. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all. My downpipe is rotten to the point of being practically non-existent. I patched it up to get me by a few months after spending thousands this year on various works, I was just spent out, but it's given up the ghost and I suspect it's terminal this time. I'd love to splash on an...

  14. Alfa 164 & 166
    My 166 seems to be using a bit of oil which I expected as they are pretty notorious for it. But what's the general consensus for best viscosity type esp for a 13 year old 95k mile Twin Spark engine? I'm sure I read somewhere using a thicker grade seems to reduce the oil consumption (and also...
  15. Alfa 164 & 166
    Hello all Without boring everyone to death, I was in the market for an Alfa 159 2.0JTDm - I really do miss having an Alfa as my daily drive. However.... they are really outside my price bracket & the ones I can kind-of afford are pretty leggy. Then I saw this rather lovely 166 TS for sale from...
  16. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi guys! Day after day I'm thinking about buying a 159. I know it's fat and heavy but I just cant resist the beautiful design inside and outside! Currently I'm driving a 156 2.0TS in a pretty good condition (under 100k miles) with some mild tuning like remap, full exhaust, v6 intake mod...

After cleaning out the cobwebs, dead mice, leaves etc from the engine bay and sticking a new battery on it - yes you guessed correctly it won't start!!!! :cry: The key code light goes out as it should and so does the...
  18. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello all, Seeing that my air filter though having done only 4k is about 6 years old I thought it's time to change. Wanting to take advantage of EuroCarParts weekend sale wondered if anyone has experience with Fram & Mann Filters? The latter is the more expensive but is it better? Both come...

    re: rear sway bar p1 96 spider 2.0ts Hello all, Does anyone know if the larger 20mm rear sway bar ( I think on v6 cars) will swap out directly with my rear 18mm sway bar. My car is a 96 spider 2.0ts. I have good luck putting (slightly) larger rear sway bars on front wheel drive cars to help...
