  1. Introduce Yourself
    Alfa 147 selespeed power steering hose came out of connection just under right front guard. No leaks or anything previously just he hose connection has come loose. $410 for new hose, does this sound correct? or is this for new rack or pump or something else. New hose on other models is under $200

  7. Alfa GTA
    Hi guys, I have a question for those of you who do their own repair work on their cars. The story is a bit longish, so please bear with me: Three weeks ago, I decided to give the 156 GTA SW a completely new suspension (Bilstein B14). And, since the car has already 65000 km on the odometer, I...

    This may sound a silly thing to ask, but having looked at a freinds 156 I noticed his dipstick was different to mine. My one looks like a spring but with a flat bit on the end, (Car is 2000 registered 2 litre CF2) and his is just a flat piece of metal from the top to the bottom. (His car is a...

    I can hear the groans already..! I searched for earlier threads, but did not find what I was looking for. I am seeking guidance for best spark plugs to suit a 1977 2000 Spider Veloce, with twin Dellorto carbs. All stock, including ignition sys. I have read that Lodge plugs are preferred, but...
  10. Alfa 155
    Hello, Could anyone tell me what the proper name for the colour of my car is? Is it Lord Blue? I haven't seen many other 155s this colour, and the ones I have seen have also been V6 models. Does this mean this colour was only available on the V6?
  11. General Alfa Discussion
    I have just ordered and received a cambelt kit from Alfashop for a 2 litre TS and the tensioner is a white plastic type affair. I am aware that this part has been revised due to failures, and was under the impression that the latest revision was an aluminium one. Is it still ok to use this...

    Apologies in advance if I'm covering old ground. I have tried searching the forum for an answer, but can't find what I'm after. I'm in the middle of replacing the front brake discs on my 147 2.0ts. Got the caliper off, removed the disc lock bolt but it looks like the disc is also held on with...

  15. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Having read various posts regarding this question I feel now that I want to know the correct temp of my alfa and if it is normal. Basically it gets to 90 then stays there, maybe going over by 2mm sometimes then fan kicks in, if i'm on the motorway air flow means it sits at about 50 odd on the...
  16. Alfa 145 & 146
    Hello everyone! Some time ago i have noticed that my car (alfa 145 1.4 boxer) seems to be slightly leaning to one side (passenger). This really starts to bother me,especially knowing that I had both front shocks replaced in june last year. After measuring the distance from the ground to the car...
  17. Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Hi all, I have fitted an oil temperature gauge on my Sud and i am having some readings that seem rather strange to me. In normal driving it will take 20 mintes for the gauge to show anything more than 60 degs (the minimum) and after pushing the engine a little on the motorway it climbs up to 80...
