  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Can someone identify these coils? The seller claims they are 156 sportkit coils but since he bought them a long time ago he doesn't know which edition they may be. TS, wagon, diesel or GTA. Their dots are one green and two blue for the front and one yellow and two blue for the rear (as in the...
  2. Alfa 164 & 166
    Good Afternoon, I have a 1996 164 Super 24V and after changing the Cambelt Cleaning the Injectors and getting a full service I arrived at my garage to park it only to see smoke from the engine. I opened the bonnet and it was coming from the middle front coil and it was cracked and melting. I...

    Hi Every one, I am a new alfa owner, i am wondering did any one try the ebay coils as they claim they have 5 years warranty, and if the coils really last for 5 years this more than enough for me, links below for example they have a pack of 6 coils with a reasonable price, so did anyone try ebay...
  4. Alfa MiTo
    Hi there, in America lots of people using 4C ignition coils in their Arbaths (they have the 1.4 l multiair engine like the MiTo) and claim benefits over the original ones. Can someone speak out of own experience? Here is an example...
  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My 156 is giving me the runaround… Has had odd MSCF errors - seemed to be transient fault on coil 4 (P0354) Then it threw fatal coil failure P0301 on cylinder 1, along with P300 (Generic misfire) & P0430 (Cat 2) - I assume the latter two make sense with a coil failure. To check it really was...

    Hello! I have cheap offer for almost new coil springs but my car is 156 petrol and the coil springs are off 147 JTD, don't know what engine it was. Will it fit? Probably would but is the spring recoil the same, the hardness of the spring? Thanks! Regards!
  7. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi Guys, Wonder if anyone can help me, I have a 1750 Alfa 159 Tbi, due to a pothole on the terrible roads in Bury and some wear and tear I suspect my left rear spring snapped. I took it to National Tyres as I needed a quick turnaround and they were the closest garage that could get the parts...

    If anyone is interested, I have a full set of original front and rear coils for a Brera 2.4 (210) from a 2007, very good condition hardly any miles done on them just been stored? I can post some pics if anyone is interested??
  10. Alfa GTA
    Does anyone have a spare clip for the ignition coil connector or can tell me where I can get one? Current solution works but I would prefer a stock clip :)
  11. Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Hi guys. I'm in desperate to replace the front coil springs on my 1978 Alfasud with stiffer ones. As it can be seen from the photos, the car cannot be turned as fast as I like to, due to excessive front suspension opening. The rear set-up is as good as it gets. Anyone has upgraded front coils...
  12. United Arab Emirates
    Hi, I was hoping to replace my front suspension springs. However, seeing that ready stock isnt available with Gargash, can someone point me to an aftermarket dealer or alternatively an auto workshop in UAE that could do heat treatment of the springs to restore the elasticity. Thanks.

    Hi Has any one have any 156 2.4 jtd coil springs for sale ? New or used ???????
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all I need a bit of adult supervision. Im currently running a 156 2.4 jtd 10v saloon. When I bought it the perivious owner thought it would be clever to lower the girl 60mm all round which is crazy. Anyway the car is in mint condition and would like to turn her back to her original self. I...

  16. Alfa 164 & 166
    Does anybody know if there is a way to test pencil coils off the car. I have 10 and I'm not sure if they are all good and with the rear bank being quite a job to get at , just wondered if it's possible to test them.
  17. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    In one month I've needed 3 replacement ignition coils. Is this normal or does it mean that once one has gone it puts extra load on the others so they eventually fail also?
  18. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    This whole subject is a bit of a nightmare. Everyone have their own opinions on what is best. I used to have fsd's and eibach springs on my old GT. And to be fair they were a really good compromise in handling and comfort. Still not perfect, but so much better than the oem setup, which even on...

    Hi Guys 'n Girls I have had problems with my JTS for a couple of months now. Started miss fiering and came up with SYSTEM FAILIURE, MOTOR CONTROL. The first few times it would go away by cleaning the wires and the coil packs, but i have now changed all 4 coils and it is STILL missfireing. I...

    159 3.2 is having coils checked for a misfire issue, should I change the spark plugs while we are in there? service schedule says they should be changed at 72k miles and she is on 66k now
