    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So after failing my MOT on the CO emmisions, I have given the car a full service, cleaned out the engine using a variety of different engine flushes, have changed spark plugs and coil packs and am now stumped.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Firstly, great forum with some useful information. I scour it daily without making posts - largely for information and opinion. Now I find myself in the 159 section. Anyway, about 6 months ago I bought my first Alfa, a 147 Collezione TS 1.6 in Red with the black contrast roof. It is bloody...

  7. Power steering disaster - continued. HELP!

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi all, We've found a leak on one of the power steering hoses. It's right at the back against the bulk head. We think it's the high pressure hose as it was p****** out when we topped up the reservoir to detect the leak. Trouble is, it looks like the hoses come out as a pair. The leak it in a...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just over a month on and around 3,000 miles later and my GT woes continue. The car failed to start the other day (no sound of starter motor or engine trying to turn over when key turned all the way) and had to call the RAC out who managed to get the thing started with a very long screwdriver...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Since I picked up my alfa there has always been a slight knocking from the front suspension! I got it checked out and the worst noise seemed to be coming from the front left and it turned out to be a loose arm of some sort that a dodgy mechanic had messed around with before. This didnt stop the...
