  3. Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    Hi Our 159ti 2.4 recently blew its turbo damaging 2 pistons so we are having the short end replaced entirely and replacing 2 damaged valves. :cry: Our much respected mechanic insists we replace the Inter Cooler, Oil Cooler & Inlet Manifold as to remove any risk of logded turbo debris entering...

    My otherwise 100% reliable GTV has died! :cry: Driving up the A1 a week or so ago, it lost all power, the temp guage shot through roof and all the water blew out of the header tank! :wow: 6 hours later the GTV arrived back at home on the back of an AA truck! The consensus of opinion is...

  8. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Just a cautionary tale - I was cleaning my Spider in the shed, car was locked with driver's window down to allow Optimate lead through. Charger was on. I accidentally tripped the alarm, and the power surge destroyed the Optimate, and tripped all the power in the house! Must remember to...
  9. General Alfa Discussion
    I accidentally blew up a BMW 325i coupe today (previous model). Well, sortof. When leaving the lights at modest speed I think the driver may have misinterpreted the normal slight snarl of my engine as a call to arms, and floored it. Purely to let him know that I hadn't been snarling...

  11. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    When I was driving from Canberra to Sydney. Apparently a piston went loose and knocked a hole in the side of the engine. It's going to cost $15000 AUD to replace the engine apparently. :eek: I'm so glad I'm leasing my GTV (TS) as the maintenance costs have been pretty high - tyres, servicing...
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I have a 70k km 2.0 147, and the engine decided to blow up at 160kph last week. Was wondering if someone could pass me Alfa Italy's mailing add/contact add of ppl I should be writing to. My mechanic suspect bolt fatigue resulting in the conrod separating and punching tru the engine...
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Guys, I was just moving some stuff here (moving house, so the 147 comes in handy with its space, compared to my earlier Fiat Barchetta...), listening to some nice Swedish rap music, with the volume at 40 and the Bass at +3, when I suddenly hear this loud popping noise. After that, the bass...
  14. Alfa 155
    My NS foglamp (which I use too much) has blown, are the bulbs easy to replace? It's a Corrello on a 97R. Is it destination Halfords for the part? I've made no kind of investigation of the foglamp yet so forgive me if it's an obvious one! :rolleyes:
