    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi All, I was completing an oil change on my Alfa 159 3.2 and all was going well until I went to change the filter. When I tried to remove the cap, the nut at the bottom broke off which left a crack/hole on the cap. I ordered a replacement on ebay but it doesn't fit. Anyone have any ideas of...
  3. Expansion tank cap

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Managed to close the bonnet on my expansion tank cap which I removed to top up the level. This cracked the top of it so I have fixed it with epoxy putty for now.

  8. Attendants don't close fuel cap properly

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Found it in my last two fill-ups now. Mileage drops by more than 50km, which for a V6 is a bit. it's also a fire risk I suppose with ignitable vapours. Do check after fill-ups and make sure.

  11. Brera petrol filler cap letting water in

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Is there supposed to be a o-ring or something around the outer edge of the fuel filler flap? After its been raining for example water is sometimes flooding inside the filler cap, almost half way up. Anyone got an idea on a temp fix?

  13. Giulietta 1750 cloverleaf - replacement fuel filler cap

    Alfa Giulietta
    So, I seem (ok, definitely have) left my fuel filler cap at a petrol station. Unfortunately they didn't have it, when I went back a few days later. My question is, does anyone have the relevant part number for a replacement or are these interchangeable items with other models (i.e. a MiTo?)...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Can someone advise where I can buy a fuel cap for my 159 TBI TI? Tried eBay but there are no new ones on sale and the used ones are really worn. Ideally I would like to get an original but can also live with a non-original. Thanks

  19. Fuel Cap and check engine light

    Alfa Stelvio
    This is probably obvious to a lot of people but was a first for me. If the fuel cap is closed, tight but doesn't reach the "click" position" you may find a "check engine" light appearing. This happened to me - caused a degree of consternation until I figured out the fault - (left the ODB dongle...
