    After researching on hear I have taken the camshaft sensors out to flush them through but they are clean as a whistle,I do have my oil and filter changed every year dispite the small amount of miles I clock up through the summer months so this may well be why no cleaning of the sensors needed...

    Just changed the discs on my gtv cup. I bough Delphi discs which fit just fine but read that they are 284mm discs where as I’ve read elsewhere they should be 304mm. Should they be ok ?

    Hi! I am the proud owner of a beautiful Stromboli Grey 159 2.4 TI. To say I have a love hate relationship with it would be an understatement. Being honest, my heart took over my head when I parted with £3,900 for a car with 120K on the clock last February. Since then I've replaced the clutch...

  7. Alfa Giulietta
    My 2011 2.0 Veloce had an Mot advisory for a slightly leaking rear shock. It's done 71k miles and the ride is noticeably worse than it was when I bought the car with 28k 4 years ago (although this is partly due to the front tyres needing replacing soon). Basically I'm looking at replacing all...

    I've got this weird ticking sound and I can't really tell what's supposed to be the problem. Recently I took the head off, because some glow plugs fell in. Replaced valve seals and some stuff and re-assembled everything and started it up. First I got a major leak at injector 4. Probably fuel...

  13. Tuning & Upgrades
    After a ton of hours learning on ecudedit and ecuconnections forums, I think I finally understood the torque, IQ limiters, NM/iq map, driver wishes, Rail pressure, duration maps... It was a nice learning experience, a pity at first, reading matrix hex codes everywhere :lol:. Turbo is a GT2256V...
  14. Introduce Yourself
    Hi all I'm looking to get into a 159 sportwagon TI. No real requirements as far as mpg is concerned and I hugely prefer petrol engines to diesel but but the 2.2 and 3.2 petrol models seems to get disappointing reviews leaving me with the oil burners. Ideally after a 2.4 just because it's...

    Hey all, Most of the guides I've found for removing the swirl flaps from the 1.9 JTD (and mapping out EGR) recommend removing the swirl flap rods and plug up where the rods used to be. Would it be ok just to careful pull the flaps themselves off the rod welds (if I can), leave the rods in...

  20. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, I'm looking for some advise, I have set my heart on a spider (outside chance Brera). I have done a lot of reading, but I wondered which is the best option for overall reliability. Diesel obviously has better MPG, cheaper tax but is noisy, unlike the 2.2 petrol. What are your thoughts? Ta
