    Does anyone have experience of the cheap timing tool kits available on Ebay? I only expect to need one to work for one belt change. The crank and cam locking tools appear basic enough for their cheapness not to be a worry and I expect I can check everything with the timing marks on the engine...

    Hi Everyone, I have recently acquired a 2007 147JTDm with the CF4 inlet manifold. After reading about the CF4 swirl valve failures I decided to deflap it. The inlet manifold is off and ready to deflap. I just wanted to confirm some details before I proceed. To remove the swirl flaps it looks...

    Has anyone ever attempted this and is it possible? Struggling with a tune on a hybrid with the cf3 engine we are running at moment and tuner is saying it's down to the edc15 ecu not being flexible enough (ie we can't have a bigger rated boost sensor plumbed in as the ecu doesn't have the ability...

    I want to replace the cambelt on my '06 JTD16v 150 Alfa 147. I can't seem to find out if it is CF3 or CF4 - I'm thinking CF3. Chassis number is ZAR93700005213555. I wondered if anyone can help? The online eper system only seems to go up to 2005.

    Hi guys, I've posted here as it may come to the attention of somebody that requires the part. Hence why I didn't post in the for sale section, fingers crossed that logic makes sense. Anyway, I ordered a clutch assembly but the thrust bearing was faulty so I had to buy one urgently (same day)...

    Hi All, I've decided to replace a few parts on the old girl, but I'm in a bit of confusion by the track rod ends. At Alfa workshop there are different TRW ones for the CF3 and CF4 engines, but the original ALFA part is the same? Alfa Romeo GT Track Rod End At AutoLusso, they don't state the...

    Happy new year everyone in the last few days ive noticed what i believe to be a sticky clutch plate on my 2004 147 jtd, its like it slips briefly around the 200-2500rpm mark then is fine after even if on a hill with high throttle.(cars been chipped to circa 170bhp) im no expert but i guess its...

    i have a 147 with CF4 engine , and have had egr blanked and patched in software. i have also had the metal swirl flaps removed and software patch installed. my question is what sort of problems/issues has anyone had after doing this mod. my MPG is at best 39mpg and although the performance is...

    Long story short, swallowed a swirl flap and had to get a second hand engine from scrap yard. New engine was from an '05 car and mine is an '07. Mechanic swapped over all mechanicals from my existing car to new engine including fuel pump (which apparently has a different loom) but now informs...

    Does anyone know where I can purchase an exhaust flange, prefer mild steel but stainless is fine, 12mm or more, JTD 1.9 16v? I am getting my brother to build a custom exhaust manifold and it will save some hassles if I can get one already cut. Shipping is to Australia... Thanks!

    Right, now I've got a cf4 jtdm have I realised just what issues can arise. :wow: So egr and swirl can cause major problems. So far I've seen that you can blank the egr and remove swirl flaps. Both require remap/ delete. As far as swirls are concerned would it be a easy fix to disconnect the...

    Zar93700003343567 Need to order cam belt and water pump kit. Car at 75k, belt was changed at 35k but not pump :rant:
  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So when I bought my car I had to wait over a weekend to get it. However on the saturday morning, still a bit drunk/hungover I put an excessively large max bid on a steinbauer pbox (tuning box). Long story short I won it, thankfully at significantly less than my semi-drunk self was willing to...

    has anybody got any experience of removing the 4 flaps in inlet manifold ? i have a 2007 gt 1.9 with cf4 engine, black plastic manifold with the varible flap unit that fits between the cylinder head and the inlet manifold. i have heard stories about theses flaps falling off (alfas and bmws etc)...

    please can anyone i.d what engine is fitted to my july 2007 alfa gt diesel, it has 937A500 on the chassis plate, with black plastic inlet manifold? i would like to order a cam belt kit and i see there are the cf3 and cf4 kits available, not sure which one i need? many thanks in advance
  18. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    As the title says, need a new one, and dont want to go aftermarket as they appear to be a waste of time. My 07 GT JTD is a CF4 and its not the one with the screws that you can remove the sensor from the barrel to replace with a vauxhall part, its the sealed variety. Anyway, what's my options...

    Hi, I've got new (CF4) injectors. I'm trying to code them using FES in my (CF3) ECU. I get message "FAILED TO EXECUTE". If I use one of the 4 codes stored in the ECU in any of the 4 cylinders it works fine, descarding software/cable problems. Not knowing a thing about IMA coding, my guess is...
