  1. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hello, Alfaowners. Today I would like to warmly ask you to help me to solve the case of weird noise which comes from the oil pump area of my 2.4 diesel because I am totally out of ideas now.😔 Background of the story: Car: Alfa Romeo 159 2.4 2006 The engine is just after the rebuild which I...
  2. Tuning & Upgrades
    Hi! If anyone has plans on upgrading an intercooler to 156 20v mjet I seriously recommend to think twice.. especially if you want to keep your fog lights and head light washers(if xenon). When I started the project I really didn't know what Im involving to. But I know there are some other...

    Hi all, I recently purchased a 2007 159,2.4 JTD 210. All is good(although feels a lot slower thn my 147 1.9 jtdm 150hp) It does however need its timing belt and water pump changed, not on miles, but the age. I do all my own work on our cars, although I have never done a timing belt change. I...

    Hi guys, I have the above which will be going to the Alfa gods early next week due to rust in the sills and a couple of other places. If any of you guys need anything from it give me a shout, bits will be cheap + postage. Its a shame to see it go but needs must. Engine and box are sweet as a nut...
  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey people, Just bought my first alfa after a few fiats and lancia's. I have a 156 facelift 2.4 20v and i want to improve its output a little. I read on the site of squadra tuning which some of you probably know that the first restriction of the 2.4 20v is the size of the turbo and the size...
  6. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I’ve found some old threads on this subject from some years ago but would appreciate some up to date advice. My 156 2.4 20V oil cooler is now leaking so badly that the car is undriveable and I need an affordable solution. Autolusso don’t specify their oil coller kit as suitable for my car and...
  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I am about to break my 156, its a facelift car, very dark grey with red leather, car runs and drives and is still MOT'd until March, it has done 90k but the DMF is rattling and the diff is also in the way out with a significant whine. If anyone is looking for any parts please get in touch, as in...

    Morning all, decided another 156 was needed, this time a Sportwagon. Just bought this one from a nice guy in Fife. Red 2.4 20V Veloce. RF54 MVV, also had J60 DSP on it for a while according to the HPI check. It's clearly been well looked after but has absolutely no history with it at all. Does...
  9. Tuning & Upgrades
    Hello all, Just wanted some input on what I might need to be able to hit 300hp from a 156 20v engine. I know i'm going to need bigger injectors and a bigger intercooler, map sensor, and will need to something about the exhaust system. But will I need to change the turbo? if so what would...

    Hello all, I’ve hit a point of confusion, does the 2.4 20v engine have an oil cooler from factory?
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Got chance of a well mapped ecu etc for 20v with keys etc. What would i need to carry out swap? Ecu, immobilizer, anything else? Do i need to swap locks or can i pop my blades in the new new keys? Would i need to swap anything else to make new remote fobs work as well? Just a list of what i...
  12. Alfa Giulia
    I have now had my Giulia for a short while, replacing my much beloved 156 Ti, and I thought I’d do a quick roundup of my early thoughts on the new car versus my old one – just in case anyone is interested and for me to look back on at some time in the future. Firstly, the 156 is still with me –...
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all. Not really sure where to post this. I have a 156 20v JTDm I’m either going to sell or break. It ran out of mot 2-3 months ago. It had 2 new rear calipers and handbrake cables last mot. Car is on 92k and I’ve owned it for 4-5 year when it was on 60k. I bought it and replaced the drive...
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Good Day lady’s and gents, I’m having an issue with my 156 Sometimes I’ll start the car and it’ll drive fine power is good no problems Other times it’ll start fine but won’t build any power at all, as if there’s no boost from the turbo, or won’t build any boost until around 3,500 rpm. The...

  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    One of the rear dampers has died so need to replace the pair, budget is very very tight. Where is the cheapest place to buy some and is there anything else to look out for when doing the job i.e. bolts. Plan is to simply get the car back on the road as cheaply as possible. The car is a 20v...
  17. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Started hearing very unusual noises from my 2.4 Jtdm.. I don't know if you can pick it up from the video but there is a high pitched buzzing/resonating sound inside the cabin + a rumbling sound coming from the engine. This happens upon acceleration and starts around 2000rpm. To give you a hint -...
  18. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all Just been playing with multi-ecu-scan on my 159, and interested in the feedback on the sensors we are bestowed with on modern diesels, but it means jack if there's not any reference for comparison. So does anyone know what typical exhaust gas temperature readings should usually be, read...

    My luck has been always terrible, so it couldn't have happened otherwise. After 9 months with the new head, a coolant hose sliced apart and emptied the coolant,causing a huge overheating. Since then the coolant started to build pressure...again Yesterday I removed the head, hoping just a bad...
