    Hi, there probably already is a thread about crankcase breathers, however they are in different sections and 3.2 Busso definitely has at least different ECU and the stock ventilation system is also different then for example on GTV. Does anyone have experience with fitting them? As my stock...
  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    While replacing the cambelt I've discovered the plastic ends of my crankcase breather tube have disintegrated letting oily fumes puff around the engine compartment. I also found out the cost of a replacement from EB Spares to be around NZ$250.00 (I couldn't find the cost of an original Alfa one...
  3. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So doing some work on the car I suddenly noticed a hose which had been split in half and capped off with large bolts. See the image. Wouldn't this be the crankcase ventilation hose??? And wouldn't capping it off like that cause excess pressure in the crankcase??? I guess the previous owner (6...
  4. Alfa MiTo
    Hi, has anyone installed a pressure reducer kit for the MiTo? It seems to be a common tuning feature in Japan. Can someone tell me how this should work?
  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, I seem to be getting some oily fume smells coming into the car, more so when the car is stationary in a queue or waiting at the lights etc. The fumes seem to be coming from the rear of the engine (2.4 JTDm) and it appears that the canister thing that I think is the crankcase breather...
  6. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Just about to begin the return journey on my P1 Twinspark Spider. Have pulled the flywheel off in order to check gearbox side crankcase oil seal. I have had abit of an oil leak in this area and noticed a small puddle of oil in the gearbox bellhousing. So, im in the process of buying a...
  7. Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Hi guys, I'm changing the clutch on my 1988 1.7 8v sprint and noticed a little oil at the bottom of the inside of the engine block, just behind the flywheel....not a lot but I'm guessing I should change the rear crankcase oil seal whilst I have the engine out?? Question is how difficult is it...
  8. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all, conducted bit of a freshening on the 159 2.4 with new egr valve clean map etc. Noticed however that the crankcase breather pip the attaches to the head very close to the intake pipe/butterfly is very oily and weepy. is this something that could cause a puff on cold start up and how...
  9. Tuning & Upgrades
    hi anyone ever used a exhaust venturi method of crankcase breather evacuation. maybe the track racing guys ? ever tested how much vacuum it pulled ? any info to add please add here or here...
  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I recently had an oil & oil filter change on my 2005 1.9JTDm Alfa GT at a local diesel specialist and when I collected the car the garage recommended that I might want to change the crankcase breather. The problem is I'm having trouble finding a good place to buy one from? Does anyone know...
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello alfaowners, i have a problem with my alfa 156 2.0 ts, i think there is a little to much oil at the buttom of the engine, near the timeing belt in the bottom of it, and it also looks like there is some from the camshafts. I wondered what i could be, and after a little bit of reading i found...
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just trying to understand how the crankcase vent system works on my 156 with the 1,8ts motor. There is a hose going from the black box on the cam cover to the air intake hose just before the throttle body. At idle this hose sucks some air into the cam cover in pulsations. Another hose goes...
  13. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi, Have modified the venting system on my Flipfront GT1300 Junior with a 1750 engine from a 1972 Spider, to fit a breather tank and a Pipercross airfilter. Result is sky high oil consumption coming out of the breather/catch tank. Oil all over the innerwing and all over the back of the car. 1...
  14. Alfa MiTo
    Was always curious on the 'benefits' of a crankcase breather and the more reading I did the more confusing it got. In Halfords they were selling a Pipercross crankcase breather for a €1 and I thought I would give it a blast. Given that it was only a 20mm did a 'workaround' to make it fit but...
  15. Alfa GTA
    Any comments on possible negative effects of replacing the crankcase ventilation pipe that is originally connected into the intake with an open breather filter? I had to replace the lower (front bank) one yesterday with a breather filter as my flexi intake pipe was broken. From what i've...
  16. Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    I know has been discussed various times with filters etc. My connector got broken so I attempted to hook up a system of my own but I think it was too restrictive. Since then I have just placed a 0.5 litre bottle (with an open hole on 1 side) that is fed directly from the side oil filler tube...
  17. Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    One of my beloved 156 jtds has developed an increasing oil leak that has all the symptoms of a pressurised cra nkcase but despite the manual illustrating a breather system i can not locate this in my engine bay. It is a 2001 sportwagon, which i believe is a cf2 model with approx 150 bhp. Can...

  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, As you all know, there are two head breathers, one pre butterfly no valve and one post butterfly that has a spring closing it on all engine revs except idle. Well my valve was broken, the spring very weak and could not source any new part, even though it is very cheap (3 euros...
  20. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, just wondered if anybody knows the diameter of the crankcase breather pipe? the reason i ask is because at the weekend i decided to change the air filter and fit a K&N one, while doing so i noticed the air intake was split :mad:. After a quick search online i decided i would make a new...
