    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello all, I need to replace my power steering fluid. At the moment it’s clear no colour. Is this normal? Either way it’s getting changed. Its a 2001 Petrol Manual 2.0L T-Spark 147. Can anyone recommend which fluid to get and the volume of capacity since it’ll probably be flushed out? Many...

    Alfa Giulietta
    I've done a search but can't seem to get a straight answer...especially with regard to the diesels. Anyone know the engine oil capacity for the 1.6 jtdm engine in our Giuliettas? We gave 5 litres of our own oil (I bought Motul 0w-30 fully synth which meets the correct Fiat spec for the G) to...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi folks, I'm a long time alfa owner, first GTV in 1997, a red Ph1. Which even I couldn't justify as suitable transport with small children. Anyway I have returned to the fold with a 2000 Spider. I'm on the rolling refurbishment road this past 3 years. The time has come to replace the seals...

  5. Screen-wash reservoir capacity

    Alfa Giulia
    Did a quick google this morning before filling up - got a capacity of 4.2L, admittedly from a US manual I found online. Recommended mix for winter was 50/50, or neat for -22 deg C. Thought I’d go somewhere in between, and dumped the whole 2.5L bottle in, but then there was no room left for...

  9. Brera 3.2 power steering fluid capacity?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Simple question how much power steering fluid/oil will my Brera take to reach the max level on the dip stick after its drained. Only reason I ask is because I can only find 1 litre bottles of the fluid/oil and I can't see in the owners manual the actual capacity for the fluid/oil Cheers.

  14. fuel tank capacity

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    In my owners manual for my 159 it shows fuel tank capacity as 70L AND with a reserve of 10L. Does this mean the total tank capacity is actually 80L? Does this mean when the needle hits empty I still have 10L in reserve? (I wouldn't have thought so and not keen to try test this for obvious...
