  1. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello I am hoping someone more experienced than I will see this post and be able to guide me a bit. So I recently acquired another 2.0 TS and have hit some running faults having now done 600 miles in it. It was really rough when cold but once it has idled for 5 minutes it was driveable. Fiat...
  2. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    My 2.4 had it’s dpf removed about 3 years ago. I have noticed that on hard acceleration it is now pumping out quite a bit of black smoke. Is this something that I am likely to be able to reduce with an additive? I tend to use the best quality shell diesel fuel so am surprised to see this much...

    Hi all, So I’ve only just discovered that you can get an additive to put in with the oil to stop minor oil leaks!!! I’ve had a slow oil leak forever with the car; only a small drip on the driveway but it is enough to be irritating. Used to be the sump plug but that’s dry now. So my question...

    morning people so, my twin spark passed its MOT this week!, did have a handful of advisories (some of which I don't really agree with) one if which is an oil leak, has anybody ever used a leak additive with any success? I don't think it is very bad as it never leaves anything on the ground...

    Hi There! I have a 2008 159. At 56k miles I have changed my power steering fluid from red to green & changed the reservoir too. Now I am at approx 60k miles. Fluid attached The climate here never goes below 0, so theoretically I could have stayed with red PS fluid. Recently my PS started to...
  6. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Dear All, I am by no means very knowledgeable on Alfa Romeo 156 mechanical issues hence the reason for reaching out to the community. My Alfa 156 2.0 twin spark 2001 model has been with the mechanic for three weeks now. He cannot figure out what the problem is and expects it is the ECU...

    Hi guys, now I know this will sound a bit odd to those who do not know the beautiful smell of Castrol R but bare with me. Castrol R was the racing engine oil of choice during the 60s, 70s and into the 80s. Anybody who went to bike races or hot rods will know exactly what I am talking about. I...
  11. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    As above really. Can anyone recommend a particular additive (and supplier) for my Petrol 3.2 V6 Brera? It failed an MOT today on various points (don't ask) including emissions. And I was hoping an additive might just about be enough to see it through the retest on this point. I'm aware of...
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have been scouring the internet for the best way of prolonging my cars engine which is an Alfa Romeo GT JTDm 2006. I have also tried to find out which is the best quality diesel. I have looked at slick 50, and stp, Halfords does something but I forget what its called, it supposedly reduces...
  13. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I know this has been debated much in the past, but I have been using Millers Eco Max as a Cetane booster for the last 2 years, and I am happy with the way the engine runs. That said, I always like to look around and make sure I am using the best products I can be and today I found this stuff...
  14. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Yes- just changed the oil in my twinnie for the second time during my ownership and added Activ8oil additive to the Castrol Magnatec 10w40 Part Synthetic oil. Don't know why they continue with that hype, it's still mineral oil unless it's fully synthetic. Anyway, I've used Activ8 in several...

    Can anyone recommend a good diesel fuel additive for the fuel tank? One that will help maintain and minimise clogging up of the various bits that suffer! Prevention is the key! Cheers
