  1. 1st to 2nd gear small jolt -TCT normal?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi All, I recently bought a guilietta QV 2014/15 with 48000kms. I may be be being really picky/OCD but I’ve noticed overall the gearbox is really smooth through the gears and downshifting etc. however when taking off from the lights (natural mode) shifting from 1st to 2nd gear there is a tidy...
  2. P1688 - Motorised Throttle (2nd idle learn)

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi All Had the engine light come on and after reading the codes (MES), I had the above come up. I've cleared it but obviously I need to address the issue. Looking on the 147 GTA forum this was fixed by unplugging a clip, cleaning it and then plugging back in. Does anyone know if this is a...
  3. 2nd Gear chugging - MAP sensor?

    Alfa Giulietta
    11 plate 140 diesel. Very low mileage. I'm finding that when I start to accelerate, mainly 2nd Gear, for the first few seconds it's like "chug.. chug.. chug.." stuttering,then it will bite and we're off. Not all the time.. and if I gently accelerate its fine, but if I normally accelerate, or...
  4. No key blade in 2nd key fob

    Alfa Giulia
    Did your spare key fob come with a key blade inside? Mine didn't and it's not even coded to the car so I am having it coded by Alfa Thames on Thursday. Just wondering if I should also cut another blade and if so - where can this be done?
  5. Fitting fake 2nd tailpipe kit, instructions

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all, Disclaimer!! @cue2 I understand the risks of posting this. I prefer to match the symmetry of The rear of car and not the asymmetry of the front. Also I prefer to match the instrument display. @All, I am sure I have read just about all threads on this topic over the years and can’t...
  6. Alfa GT 2ND AND REVERSE missing gears

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi people, my Alfa has always suffered from hard to get gears, just 2nd and reverse. Both bottom corners funny enough. Well today on my way home the end of the gear linkage poped off its thread (not the ball joint) Anyway, turns out the linkage to the ball joint had just come off its tread...
  7. veloce 2nd service - costs and independents

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi All My Veloce is 700 miles off its second service - had a quick look on here to see that dealers ( if you have one anywhere near) are charging about £450 , for what seems to be a first service plus a brake fluid change. Has anyone gone to an independent garage :cheeky:? I live in Liverpool...
  8. 2nd year service

    Alfa Giulia
    Has anybody had the year 2 service? According to the handbook. These items are not changed, fuel, air filter. The cabin filter and brake fluid are replaced and of course oil/filter. I have been qouted £349. Cannot see why its so expensive when compared with the 1st one? Can anybody tell me more
  9. 18000 mile / 2nd Veloce service

    Alfa Giulia
    Coming up for my 2nd service - the 18000 mile one. Dealer is quoting £455 which seems crazy. From what I can see the only thing different about this service vs the first service is a cabin filter change? Has anyone paid significantly less than this at a dealer for the 2nd service? I would...
  10. 166 steering wheel - difference betw 1st and 2nd series?

    Alfa 164 & 166
    The steering wheel of my 2004 TI is worn and Im about to replace it with a better second hand unit. Are there any differences between the years, say serie 1 compared to the face lift? Buttons and colours obviously differ from model to model, but other than that?
  11. 2nd, 4th and reverse difficult

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Reverse has always been a bit hit and miss in my GT (ever since new), 2nd and 4th aren't easy either sometimes. I'm wondering what the problem is. It feels like that maybe the gear selector and/or engagement cables are too short. Could this be the case, and are the cables adjustable? Thanks.

However I have already encountered my first problem with the car. It's stuck in reverse in an electrical sense, the reverse...
  13. Noooo! 6th to 2nd gear at 60mph

    Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    Very much an accident getting used to my new diesel GT. On the motorway, I wanted to pop it in to 4th to get round a middle lane muppet, but accidentally found 2nd. I immediately dropped the clutch and put it back in 6th with Motor System Control Failure pop up on the dash. The car seemed OK...
