  2. Twinspark 1.6 4th gear...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I've read a lot about 4th gear "swarf" fixes if you can't get it into 4th gear, but what about if it pops out of 4th gear? Mine works fine until about 2 miles down the road (i.e. it's fine when cold) and then it starts popping out for 4th. Changed the gear oil, no noticeable improvement.. Am...
  3. Gearbox whine in 3rd and 4th

    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...

    Any of you Northern folk planning on going? I thought I might pop along if the weather's looking OK. I spoke to the organiser and it's going ahead this year. Just pay on the day and apparently the car park attendants have been primed to direct Italian...
  11. New here and about to buy my 4th Alfa

    Introduce Yourself
    Hi all, From South Africa. Recently(today) found this group, have always loved Alfa Romeo since I cut my teeth on my first 80's era Giulietta. Last one I owned was a 155 ts and have recently looked at a 1998 Spider ts. Still not 100% sold on this particular spider though. Going to sleep on it.

  13. Alfa Romeo 147 2.0ts no 4th gear

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all I'm in need of some help! My car won't go into 4th gear, every other gears fine just feels like it's being blocked by something. Took it to the garage he checked the gearbox and nothing was wrong that end then check the linkages and they are worn down as the gear stick was very wobbly so...
  14. 159 1.9jtd Gearbox Whine but in 3rd and 4th

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi All, Now that my VPS fault looks like it is cured I can look a bit further in perfecting the 159. One thing that is obvious is a whine in the gearbox but not in 5th and 6th but 3rd and 5th. In all others it is fine and apart from sound in those gears. Sound disappears when engaging the...

  17. Turbo losing boost in 4th at high RPM

    South Africa
    I noticed something weird today. I was in D and was pushing my G for a bit of fun and down a long straight I held it in 4th and let the revs climb. At around 4,500 RPM I noticed the boost meter showing a loss of boost (I could hear it too). On the boost meter it drops down by 2-3 bars. I'm not...
  18. 4th gear not working

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    156 JTS 2.0 Whenever I put the car into 4th it pops back out once the clutch has been released and the gas has been applied. All other gears are still working fine. Does anyone have any ideas what might be causing it? Do I need a new gearbag or is it likely that the linkage or clutch is at...
  19. Can't get 4th gear!!!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Driving back from my daughter's yesterday I was suddenly unable to select 4th gear (all other gears working fine), it feels as if something fairly substantial is blocking the movement of the gearstick in that direction. However this cleared itself eventually and I was able to select 4th for the...
  20. 4th Year Warranty cover

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi guys, Looking at options for 4th year warranties, although the dealers all want to seem to rope you in with a servicing agreement plus RAC cover (Which I don't need as I have it already). What have other people done for 4th year warranties? I can't seem to find anything from Alfa. Does...
