    Hi folks, had a scare today. Was driving back from work. Nearing a T junction, lights turned Amber. Was going a tad bit fast and my front tyres were worn. Stomped on the brake pedal. Brakes bit in, halfway through, suddenly lost all brake pressure and foot went down to the floor. Luckily there...

    Wondering where to start to remedy this one and what needs replacing/looking at... Following a couple of weeks ownership of my Alfa 2005 156 Jtd (8v) in March I found that the flexi aircon pipe that comes out of bottom port of the condenser to the drivers side chassis leg joint had been...

    Well that's the two front springs changed butt knott withoot different difficultis oan baith sides. The only common denominator was oor Purple's favourite the age auld upper bottom fork bolt. I should have bought noo rubbers like I did fur the rears but never hud a problem wie the fronts. New...

    Was on my way to Poole in Dorset when I got the low oil pressure warning, pulled over as soon as I could, turned off my engine and had a look and saw a puddle of oil under the oil cooler pipes, now waiting for green flag to recover me, 6 miles from autolusso south, guessing they are closed at...

    discovered I have a burst o/s outer cv boot, booked in for replacement but decided to clean up the mess. since the wheel was off I also gave the bolts a quick hammerite. only another 3 to do and probably this one again after the boot is replaced
  7. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    So here's the puzzle. 1999 Alfa 916 has gone through 4 radiators in 12 months and only 750miles. Leaking cylinder head gasket? This was changed last time and no pressure in the coolant was found after the change. I really thought the problem was solved. But it's leaking again. The usual...
  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Ok, so ive been driving my car about, enjoying my Alfa and i notice vibrations coming through the dash, kinda grinding, more so when coasting. I wind down the driver side window, nothing sounds different, I wind down my passenger side window and i notice a squeek/rubbing sorta noise which is...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, Had my 156 2002 MOT'ed today and the front OS (I think he said) brake pipe burst during the braking test. Thankful it went here and not on the road! This means I can't drive it away obviously and this wouldn't be a problem normally I'd just get the garage to fix it, but they haven't...

    The 156 had a paddy this weekend :lol: First the gas strut that holds the tailgate up exploded spitting oil all over me:rolleyes: Then just when I popped out i noticed a ticking coming from the front left wheel (not worn drive shaft tick BTW) On closer inspection the boot has let go spreading...
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    :cry:After having a new radiator i still suspect the thermostat has gone because the temp gauge rarley shows above 70 and drops to 50 very quick. so i do the thermostat test. bottom rad hose gets warm first. top hose takes 10min to warm. with a bit of revs the temp gauge reaches 88ish and the...
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have a 2001 156, 1.8TS about a month ago I noticed that whenever I pushed the button for the rear heated windscreen the radio would go all fuzzy, this did not really bother me but then I noticed that the rear window was only clearing in 1 small area. Now when I push the switch, the light comes...
  14. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Anyone had this before?? The short brake pipe from Brembo caliper to the flexi hose attaching on the hub/shock - burst on me today an the end where it attaches to the flexi - Looks like it had just rusted through. Seems stupid to make them out of steel not copper...
  15. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello all After saving for over a year to have the Spider's broken cambelt/destroyed valves repaired she is finally back on the road. That was until the rubber hose joining the two injector fuel rails burst. This pipe is on the left side of the engine bay and joins the two injector rails. It...
  16. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I was merrily making my way to the Warwick meeting this evening, and while zooming on the A46 (I was doing 80mph or so..) right past the A4447 junction I hear a rattling noise from the front wheel, which grows in a matter of seconds!! It souns like driving on the sidelines of the road, but I...

    I've seen loads of GT Cloverleaf's in Atlantico Blue on 18" rims but today on Park lane in Netherton I saw a GT in Dijon Blue I swear it had 18" Blackline teles like mine :eek: No Mangoletsi sticker but I didn't catch the Reg plate so it might have been a Mango's car :) It's the first time...
  18. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I was reversing into a parking space this morning outside my home, this particular manouver required full lock. When I turned the wheel to full lock I heard a 'grinding' sound and I immediately lost all power steering. By the time I'd parked it I must have had biceps like arnie! I opened the...

    here are two pics you can see. This was caused by over heating when the high speed did'nt kick in.

    Hello all! 2.0 JTS GTV - dumped all of its coolant the other day. Turns out it was the rigid pipe (part No 60676070). Mr AA put what my girlfriend described as looking like a big poo in the system to seal it (I guess this is some sort of rad weld) to get her home. Phoned around a load of...
