    Alfa Giulia
    All - car is a brand new Veloce 280. At very narrow accelerator positions and therefore low revs, particularly when pulling away from stationary - the response can feel a bit hesitant,slightly 'juddery' as if there is a bit of fuel starvation... Has anyone else experienced this or have any...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have recently bought a 2002 Spider with the 2.0 TS engine and everything worked fine until the accelerator pedal stopped working in the middle of traffic. Interestingly, it worked after stopping and starting the engine for a few seconds. The pedal potentiometer was replaced and a mechanic...

  6. P2135 Accelerator pedal code on 159

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, got the P2135 code showing after my Alfa went into limp home mode going round a roundabout in the freezing conditions a few days ago. From what I can tell this is something to do with the inputs the car is receiving in relation to the accelerator pedal position not being what it...
  7. Accelerator cable end - am I mssing something?

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    The Alfetta is in with the tuners and he's mentioned that I might have a piece missing. Currently where the accelerator cable comes out of the bulk head and into the hand pedal (?) it just goes through the hole and is held in place with the a screw nipple. The tuner seems to remember that there...
  8. Bad vibration at high speed when pressing on accelerator pedal

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have got this funny problem at the moment whereby at speeds greater than 50MPH the car starts vibrating when I have my foot on the accelerator pedal. When I take my foot off, it seems to disappear. Would anybody know what the root cause of this is? Is this a suspension or a drivetrain issue?

    Any one ever experienced this problem? Basically when I drive in any gear for a split second as the revs increase the throttle makes a rattle sound or if i keep my foot lightly on the accelerator it keeps doing it until I press the pedal further then it goes away as if some part of the throttle...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi everyone! Complete newbie here, my name is Tom. Recently sold my JTDm 147 and bought a 2000 TS 2.0 GTV. My main problem at the moment is that the accelerator pedal has play in it, i.e. first inch of movement does nothing. I suspected I wasn't getting full throttle with the pedal on the...

  13. Accelerator Pedal Removal (metal front)

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all, anyone know how to remove the metal part of the accelerator?! The left hand edge of the pedal has a sharp burred edge on it (if you feel the left hand side), this is scratching all my shoes! so I need to remove the pedal and sand/ file it smooth. Earlier pedals you could simply see...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Anyone have any experience of tapping in the cars key code with the accelerator to bypass the immobilizer ? Is it simple and relatively reliable ? Backstory : i have a gtv for parts that i'm hoping to keep mobile,so i can move it out of the way occasionally,perhaps 3-4 times a year.All...
  16. Accelerator pedal, no travel

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi, my TS accelerator pedal seems to only travel about 3cm from bottom to top. Obviously the car therefore feels slow. I've checked and applied a small amount of grease the carb end but how on earth do you get to the end under the dash, and how do I tension the cable?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT

  20. Accelerator Lag question

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My 159 is driving quite well, except for the accelerator lag in automatic mode. Lags quite badly when I least want it too, like intersections ect. Strange thing is the lag is very minimal if I drive it using the paddle shift. Does anyone know why this is? Cheers
