  1. Turbo actuator

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My actuator has failed, i've tested it and once vacuum just drops off. Where is the best place to get a replacement, i've looked on ebay but i can't seem to see anyone selling the 150bhp ones. I'm also stuggling in finding part numbers, there are a couple of numbers on stickers (270706 121 and...
  2. Alfa mito1.4 actuator fault p1064

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi All My 2014 Alfa mito has developed a fault which I believe is now quite common. The engine management light came on and a diagnostic check revealed fault code p1064 - sticking actuator solenoid on cylinder 4. Only misfires fron cold and runs fine when warmed up. Any easy fix or is it a...
  3. alfa 1.9 jtdm remove swirl flap actuator arm

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My engine is in limp mode and would like to lock the swirl flaps. I have read about disconnecting the balljoint from the actuator arm. However it looks like that this is different for a 1.9 jtdm 16v. I cannot find this balljoint. All subjects are for the 2.4 engines. Is it possible to lock swirl...
  4. Fixing 147 boot actuator

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My 147's boot stopped opening when pressing the related keyfob button or the boot release button on the dash. The actuator was heard like working just fine but could not open the boot. The problem is that the actuator has plastic gears inside, which they tend to break. The fix is to replace the...
  5. Swirl Flap Actuator

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, my GT 1.9 JTDm CF4 had a faulty thermostat when I bought it and I changed it after a couple of days (along with the oil cooler). I hadn't really driven the car other than very gently before I did the work as I was nervous of the corroded pipes to the oil cooler. I noticed afterwards that...
  6. Idle Speed Actuator Reset - still behaving weird with AC on and best way to train it

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all! I replaced my knackered Idle Speed Actuator with a used unit and reset it. It's gently 'finding its feet' but I'm curious what your experiences were like when you reset its parameters - how long did it take to idle fully normally? With the AC off it's 95% great, but with the AC on it's...
  7. Heater flap motor / actuator - anyone have one or just the correct reference?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi everyone - I'm finally getting round to repairing the A/C on my car (blowing hot air since I first bought her and recycle function has been 'clicking') and need to source a heater flap motor / actuator. I've tried to find the exact part reference number via EPer but to no avail so far (I have...
  8. Idle Speed Actuator for sale?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all, It seems the idle hunting issue I reported earlier hasn't really been resolved, and I might be in need of a new idle speed actuator. The scary thing is that they're not made any more! Does anybody have a spare they're looking to sell, or can point me at a resource that has? Thanks!
  9. Removing clutch actuator arm. Help!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've a 147 Ducati and I'm trying to remove the clutch actuator arm so that I can try and lubricate the bushes on the shaft as my clutch feels awful after about 20/30 mins (but does this sporadically), but it's well seized on to the splines. This is the 2nd time I've tried and it's still...
  10. 3.2 V6 GT Air Blend Actuator (AC hot drivers side)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey guys, I've got hot air blowing on the drivers side and AC to tepid temps (depending on the heat of the motor) on the passenger's side. Does anyone have any pics of the Air Blend Actuator, where it is ect? I've seen guides for the 156 and pulled out the glove box looking for it. But it...
  11. Turbo Actuator?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My 147 jtdm 16 valve has been stood for a while. I don't remember any faults before but since I've started using it again its developed a hesitation. I seems to hold back and then suddenly take off. I'm an ex mechanic but very rusty - I'm guessing at a turbo actuator fault. I had the same...

    Hi All, I'm 99.99% certain that the actuator has gone on my 200 156 Selespeed :cry: I can get hold of an actuator from a breakers (comes with 60 day guarantee) for ~£200. Is it easy enough to change the actuator my self? Is is just a case of changing it & away I go - no more jobs to do...
  18. Buzzing Idle Actuator - Normal ?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    With the ingnition switched on but the engine not running, I can hear a humming/buzzing coming from the idle actuator on top of the throttle body ('99 TS). It sounds a bit like an electric toothbrush but a little quieter. I don't know if this is a new fault or maybe I just haven't heard it...
  19. Alfadiag Idle Actuator Reset Help!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    When doing an Idle Actuator reset on Alfadiag all it states is to turn the ignition off (from pos1 I guess) for 90 seconds. Are you then meant to switch it back to pos1 for 90 secs before starting, and do you still need to allow to idle for a while as with a normal reset? thanks.
