    I have an automoatic (TCT) Mito QV Multiair 1.4 turbo, 2014 year, 43,721 miles on the clock. A couple of months ago it wouldn't engage in 1st, 3rd and 5th gear and I had a warning light come up on the dash (a little red cog with an exclmation mark!) and a message flash up 'check transmission'...

    Hello, My 2009 Diesel Mito pops out of 3rd as soon as I take my foot of the clutch. Unable to even accelerate in 3rd. No grinding noises and all other gears are fine. Any suggestions? Thanks

    Parts changed in March: MAP Sensor Overboost valve (Pierburg) New MAF fitted and tried, still low readings - two months ago. Issues the car has: - First gear seems to have no boost at all, other gears need some time to get up to boost and then the car pulls; not as it should but still the...
  13. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Good morning all Here's one for you... After spending loads on wheel bearings and brake calipers amongst other things, my late 2007 159 1.9jtdm has decided to make strange noises in 3rd and 4th gears. It is whining constantly regardless of revs - almost grinding. I suspect the worst but would...

    Will try again for the 3rd time but when the mods are in collusion with the trolls its kinda hard...(awaits deletion, closure) especially when you ask them for valid reason why they ignore you...suppose thats the alfista for you. Those who have no experience of a QV please don't post on my...

    When I first read about the common 1.9 problems on here the injector multi plugs were mentioned as a potential problem area. Apparently the plug design was modified at some point and they're less likely to give trouble. When were the plugs changed and how do you identify which is which?
