  2. Engine cut out, crank shaft sensor

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    A few days ago my 1.6 cut out, EML came on and as I had my ODB cable in the car, I checked the fault. It was P0335 CPS circuit malfunction. Car started up again, so I left the fault there and drove home. Checked again and the fault was intermittant (rather than present). I cleared it and it's...

    Alfa Giulietta
    So I've owned a 1.6 for two weeks now. I was in a queue of traffic so start and stop was working, then at the next stop it said start and stop unavailable as the engine stopped with the oil pressure light coming on. Restarted without problem. Any thoughts?

  7. Diamond cut curbing.....

    Alfa Giulia
    Sodding typical. Stressed out by my father’s continuing decline in his nursing home I curb one of my immaculate wheels when leaving. Is the metal part lacquered or is it bare metal? Is there any way of fixing this with a localised repair? Would have thought the radial grooves would be hard if...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My 04 GT diesel just stopped yesterday. I've read the error codes using Multiscan but nothing to give any clues there. It turns over fine but doesn't fire at all.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Recently purchased a 159 Sportwagon 2.4. It has an intermittent problem when pressing the start button, it shuts all the power off completely. Putting a buster pack on battery will solve the problem and it only happens roughly 1-20 starts. Battery tested at Halfords today all good but he did say...
