  4. 2.2 Coolant Loss

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My 2.2 Brera S has lost a little coolant over the last couple of weeks - still just above the minimum line and not a huge amount, but a definite drop. I’ve already had both bleed screws replaced with metal screws/screw housing (brain isn’t functioning, I’m sure there’s a proper word). Cannot...

    Did some investigation today with AlfaOBD. If I disconnect the sensor I get water temperature reading stable 120C. If I shortcut the sensor connector it shows -20C. I connected the sensor and started cold engine. I had not used the car for two days. Outside air temp 17C, Cabin air temp 17C...
  9. The importance of JTD coolant pump (every 60K)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The pictures shown were actually from a Vauxhall CDTI which is GM's version of the JTD. On this occasion, the engine started making a strange noise from the timing belt area. It was switched off promptly and not run until investigated. Look closely at the coolant pump (above the tensioner)...
  10. 164 Coolant Temp Sensors

    Alfa 164 & 166
    On my 3.0 12V the engine temp gauge isn't working and I traced the problem to be on my sensor. Now that 60540639 isn't available anymore and I didn't find one anywhere, I have to look for alternatives. How about 60513058? How and why is that different from the original one? I see 639 is a 115°C...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
