  2. Halfords EGR cleaner no more.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Apparently Halfords do no stock diesel EGR cleaner any more. Spoke to one of the staff and he confirmed that they only have the petrol version, no explanation as to why though. On a happier note, I bought the petrol version anyway and cleaned mine, took half an hour but goodness me it's messy...
  3. BG Fuel System Cleaner

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    This stuff truly works. Anyone tried it? I thought Forte was the best you could use but after my recent MOT (which passed), garage said my 2.4 was a bit smokey and to give it a try. Think I paid £20 but after only a few days I feel such a difference in throttle response and a reduction in...
  4. Wynns egr cleaner spray - which hose?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Bought some Wynns EGR cleaner spray and it says to 'remove flexible hose in the air intake system' and spray in from there - can someone point this exact location (or describe) for 1.9jtd 2004 GT 16V?
  5. Air cleaner change 1750 TCT

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all I've just purchased a BMC filter for the wife's "G" but due to her work commitments haven't been able to have a look at how to replace the filter. Could someone please give me a heads up on how to go about changing it Thanks Allan
  6. Renovo soft top cleaner

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    This is currently £8.15 on Amazon as a lightning deal. Finishes around 11pm today. Just stocked up to remove the winter green next year!
  7. Best Brembo cleaner

    Car Detailing
    Any recommendations on keeping them nice and shiny yellow? Read many harrowing stories of aggressive wheel/brake cleaners taking the shine off.
  8. Strange intermittent noise (like a vacuum cleaner)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My GT JTDm has a weird intermittent noise which can only be described as sounding like a vacuum cleaner. It doesn't happen from startup and usually only occurs after revving over 2000rpm whilst driving. It will then randomly disappear if I open up the throttle again whilst driving and come on...
  9. Wynn's Injector cleaner

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I thought I'd give some Wynn's Injector Cleaner a go to see if I could notice any difference, I don't think my car is particularly down on power, but cleaning the injectors wouldn't do any harm. I'll update again soon and I'm sure any gains would be psychological (much like a car is faster...
  10. Turbo started sounding like a vacuum cleaner with asthma

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello, So long story short, during a -5c day i was driving around in my 1.9jtd GT somewhat aggressively (after it warmed up). Unfortunately, the turbo, on top of standard whistling sounds, suddenly started making a lower frequency whooshing sound. The closest I can describe it as is a low power...
  11. Karcher chassis/ under-body cleaner

    Car Detailing
    Had this for Christmas. Used it today on my post off-roading Panda & it worked really well. I deviated from the instructions though as put Karcher general purpose cleaner through the bottle first, then used the washer spinner then put the wax in the bottle. My drive now looks like a bog...
  12. Injector Cleaner

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I use my GT 3.2 for predominately short trips (8-10 miles) and I run it exclusively on Shell V Power. It does get a good long blast every few weeks. Do I need to add injector cleaner every few tankfuls or would I be wasting my money? Car runs fine, BTW with an even, steady tickover and clean...
  13. Calipers vs ultrasonic cleaner!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Removed from car. Stripped down. Degreased. Washed with soapy water. Wire brushed. Washed again. Sand blasted. Blown through with air line. Washed again. Blown through again. Chucked in the ultrasonic cleaner for 6 minutes:
  14. Comma Air Con Cleaner

    Car Detailing
    I thought I'd share my experience of this stuff, which I recently purchased from eBay. I've been sneezing a lot recently and I suspect it's because my cars air con has some bacteria in it, so I got hold of some Comma Air Con Cleaner. It has certainly made the car smell fresher. I have just run...
  15. Faster when cleaner

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Might just be me but my car definately goes faster when I've cleaned it inside and out.
  16. Diesel injector cleaner

    Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    What's the diesel equivalent of putting some paraffin in the petrol tank? I've heard people swear by a dash of 2-stroke oil.. but that's for the top-end, rather than the injectors, isn't it? A dash of paraffin alright for the injectors is it, or will that break something? Ralf S.
  17. Dragons breath wheel cleaner

    Car Detailing
    Does it clean up as good as it looks... I like the changing colourness of it, make it look like its working really well.
  18. Slime in the jet wash ( windscreen cleaner )

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Now as the weather is warmer, when I use my windscreen washers, the water initially comes out like gooey, clear,...well.......spunk!:big laugh: If I keep spraying ( Stop sniggering at the back!! ), it eventually runs out of jizz and pumps normal water. I'm guessing its bacteria or some such in...
  19. Seat cleaner

    General Motoring Discussion
    Can anyone recommend a good car seat cleaner please. Spilled a little yoghurt drink type stuff on to a car seat and need to remove it. TIA :D
  20. Powerenhancer Fuel Cleaner

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I've used these before to good effect so purchased some of their latest stuff to see if it's any good. The nice gentlemen sent me some free samples too. Has anyone else tried the latest fuel system cleaners?
