  1. Front Cam lobe missing

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Evening Removed my intake camshaft to sort out the variator and discovered the first intake lobe is gone (as per the photo). The lobe is almost completely round. This is one of the oddest failures of a camshaft i've ever seen, if the valve was seized I would expect the belt to snap before the...
  2. Worn lobe both cams! 2.0 JTS

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    While digging into what was causing an extreme tappet noise starting from around 1500rpm, I removed the rocker cover and found that both cams had a very worn (3-5mm lost) lobe on cylinder 1 for the intake and cylinder 2 for the exhaust. So classic cheese cams on the JTS. The car seems to have...

  6. 2.4 JTDM camshaft slippage

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I have a 159 2.4 JTDM which has crunched its rockers. Having removed the camshaft carrier I find that the relationship between the intake and exhaust cams is not logical. It appears as if the intake cam has slipped I assume that when the timing is correct both cam locking pins from the cam and...

  9. why Slacken bolt(s) of each camshaft sprocket?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi everybody. I'm currently replacing my timing belt on my 147 1.6 eco, but in the replacement manual it says to Slacken the bolts of each camshaft sprocket. I don't know why i have to do that. My new belt has the white marks lining up with the one on the exhaust sprocket and the crankshaft...

  13. Heads up! - Camshaft position sensor/switch. Caution after timing belt change.

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi folks, Just wanted to give everyone who is/has/had or will be changing the timing belt to check the condition of the exhaust cam sensor ring and its clearance to the position sensor! Take special care when removing the exhaust cam with a cam tool lever, as to not make contact with the...
  14. Camshaft position sensor on Ph1 TS

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Now that my diagnostic kit is all working and the new rad is fitted I gave the engine a run to see what was putting my EML on. Turns out it's indicating the cam sensor so I wondered if this is a common failure on the Ph1 TS? Also can it be changed without taking all belts off or can it be done...

  18. Alfa 2.0 JTS inlet camshaft replacement

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, currently on the hunt for a replacement inlet camshaft due to worn lobes. Can someone please confirm if the twin spark inlet camshaft is the same part as the JTS? Different part numbers, MASSIVELY different pricing & strangely identical appearance. Seems to be a grey area. Car is an '04 GT...

  20. Where to find a camshaft sensor Delphi connector

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Not sure if anyones had to replace one of these, but I'm after a source for a replacement Delphi PA6-6B206F10 plug which is the type used to connect the wiring to camshaft sensors on the 2.2 JTS. The securing clip is missing on one of mine and it seems no UK supplier stocks this connector and...
