  1. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all, I've owned a couple of Alfas but I'm new to AO. My 2013 159 3.2JTS has been running rough when I start it from cold, lots of vibration and a little rattle ifrom the engine bay. This morning the engine light began flashing in amber as I started the car but went off quite quickly. The car...

    I received my tensioner kit but one of the installation locking pins has popped out. Will it be possible to press it in again? It needs to be pressed in and turned at the same time. I would rather try sorting it out than waiting for a replacement - See attached photo.

    ANyone done this? I have a 159 3.2 to sell and would love the engine and brake system transplant before I sell it - 2.2 is reasonably powerful but the 3.2 is 45% more power. How many hours labour would this be at a workshop - I am sure the engine harnesses and exhausts would also need to be...

    ... going mad when rapidly accelerating :thinking: ladies and gents, although am in general overwhelmed with my 159 SW with 3.2JTS Q4 Tiptronic, since recently have started experiencing some strange problem: while car rapidly accelerate (for example on Autobahn), exactly in moment when gearbox...

    Hello everyone, I recently purchased a 2008 Alfa 159 3.2 JTS Q4 Automatic. As always, its one of the 3 159's in the entire country and only 3.2 in the country and the only automatic 159 in the country. I love the car to bits and according to the previous owner its been well looked after except...
  6. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Bear with me - I'll describe everything I've done so far. I welcome some fresh ideas. - P0365 is no signal from the left intake camshaft sensor. It comes up immediately after I start the engine and P0016 comes up a short while later. No surprise - the ECU can't calculate the phase timing...

    I decided not to buy special tool EN46111 and chose to make one instead. I could have used the crankshaft bolt but this was more fun. For the interested this is how I did mine. 1. slightly enlarge the hole in a discarded harmonic balancer/crankshaft pulley so that it slides easily on/off the...
  8. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Removing the crankshaft pulley/harmonic balancer is easier than it looks! There isn't any threaded holes in the pulley so a duck's foot puller doesn't work. The edges of the pulley are radiused so a three legged puller slips off. There is a very sexy (expensive) special tool available - but it's...

    For those from Down Under - the Ryco part number for the oil filter from the Brera or 159 3.2JTS engine is R2605P. Supercheap Auto stock them, retail about $NZ17. Not surprising that it also fits the Holden Commodore VZ.

So my question, is there any tool for joining the crankshaft in its position with the camshaft. Could anyone give me a short explanation on how to do...

    Did anyone try Holden,GMC or BOSCH OEM ignition coil for 159 3.2? Mine car got one ignition coil firing failure and the engine light continue to flash but in the market it's difficult to find an original one; even from the dealer.

    Girlfriend has previously owned: 147 - 2.0 TS 2001 156 - 1.9 JTD 16v 2003 She now drives a BMW 118DSE and I own a mint VW Mk3 Golf VR6 (I use a motorbike most of the time). However, we both love the look of the carbon black BRERA 3.2JTS V6 and have seen a 2007 with only 10k on the clock at...

    Hi to the alfisti... Just replaced my 12yo bmw with the above... If you can forgive the b-em, which of the following should I worry about (none of which I would expect in a 2006 car with 46,000KM). It's still under warranty... for a few more months! Cold start: misses at idle, lousy throttle...
