  1. Alfa MiTo
    Hi all, Hope everyone is doing well. To give you a quick recap of my situation. I have a 2014 Alfa Romeo Mito with a (0.9) TwinAir engine. As of recently, it came to my knowledge that although when I first purchased the car, it passed the mechanics test and everything looked and sounded...

    Hi, The Giulietta of the misses doesn't seem to reach the proper operating temperatures. Although the dashboard gauge needle shows 90, MES shows ~75 degrees. I want to replace the thermostat, which I have done on my 159 before. I can certainly find more information on the procedure for the...

    As above, do you have to drain the coolant when you remove the inlet manifold?? Thank you!

    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...

    Morning. Was servicing the other halfs car (1.6 diesel) at the weekend and noticed it has quite a serve coolant leak coming from the front right corner of the engine block. It looks like it's coming from a plastic flange bolted to the front face of the block which the coolant pipe then attaches...

    Hello.. well I recently acquired.. well rescued a 1997 GTV destined to be gutted for its interior by a mini owner.. anyway on pick up.. the header tank cap was not sealing... you could basically pull it straight off.. so had to be towed home. Got it home and quickly set about trying to see if...

    Some advice please folks. Does anyone know if the coolant and ancillary pipes are all common on the 156 GTA and the GT V6? Roose motorsport have a set for the GT and I wondered if they would fit the 156? One of my coolant hoses gave up the ghost over the weekend. Autolusso are out of stock of...

    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...

    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)...

    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...

    Thank You A O forum, reading a recent post about coolant loss i checked my header tank on my 2012 QV and it demonstrated all the symptoms of the failed unit, a brown "burnt" look on the top of the tank where the return pipe jets coolant back into the tank. I ordered a replacement from our...

    LizR arrived home tonight with steam behind her and a temperature gauge reading 120. There was no coolant visible in the tank. I waited and topped up - steam and massive coolant loss. Looking at the engine from the front the loss is on the right hand side and below where the coolant hose goes...

    Whilst one of our Sportwagons happily sailed through yet another mot test, I was slightly concerned and embarrassed that she peeed coolant all over the testers four post lift. Turned out to be the hoses from the thermostat to the heater matrix were a shadow of their former selves. No one seemed...

    Was surprised to have to put in quite a lot of coolant today, but it's a while since I checked it. Then I saw a plastic housing at the front left of the engine and it looked wet. Dried it off and water slowly oozed back. Can anyone help?
