    Hello everyone new here. I just purchased a 2019 gulia and I ran over some pretty large road kill the other day(maybe a baby deer about the size of a dog) which scraped the bottom of my car. I now hear this noise at a certain acceleration level or sometimes when I’m stopped and braking coming...

    Quick question: does the 2.5 V6 catalytic converter fit the 1.8TS by any chance? I'm guessing not but you never know :) The car is an old (1999 year) model.

    Hi All, Having a clear out of the garage in readiness for a new Alfa. So, I have for sale the aftermarket front twin-cats I bought for my 156 when I thought there was a problem with the original. As with so many JTSs it turned out to be the injectors, so the original cat went back on before...

    Hi all, Has anyone had a Mito Multiair throw a P0420 error code? It's happened to me a couple of times while driving at motorway speeds and as far as I know it could be anything from a knackered catalytic converter to a misfire causing it.

  16. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Guys, I know there are separate threads on 159 sub-frames being susceptible to rust, in some cases very very susceptible requiring replacement of the sub-frames. I seem to have some surface rust only at this time on my 2010 Sportwagon TI and would like to take some preventative steps to avoid...

    Hi guys, been trying to get this 147 through a MOT and everything was fine until the dreaded emissions test. It passed on the HC and CO output but epic failed on the oxygen / lambda levels. So I thought it was a leak at the front, and i found one at the catalytic converter flange. Unbolted the...

    Hi guys, my car hadn't been sounding right for the past few weeks so thought I would take it down to kwik fit for a free exhaust check. Well the guy got it up on the ramp and the diagnosis is the catalytic converter is gone. He showed me and when he shook it, it made a rattling sound. They have...
