I was having issues today where i felt a lack of power when accelerating. Initially my mind went to blown head gasket, however after a few tests i know that this wasn't the case. So i go to check my spark plugs. First socket was filled with oil! looked like i spill from an oil change i...
My starter motor didn’t engage/turn the engine. Pulled right front wheel, inner wheel arch and rotated the engine a fraction by the lower main timing belt wheel.
Now starter motor engaged, engine started hesitantly and have been idling rough since that. Error shows misfire on 4, 5 and 6.
Have had this Alfa for several years and only put a couple of thousand miles on it annually. Sometimes it starts a bit rough but always runs well after warming up for 1-2 minutes.
A few days ago it started very rough and warming up did not help. It runs but not with enough power to really drive...
First post in here :) So, I'm the owner of an Alfa 156 2002 mk1 facelift with a 2.0 JTS. After some fixes in the car (sparks, timing belt, the 4 lambdas, thermostat and radiator), I found a problem that I am not able to pin point myself.
The car has a rough idle. Like this...
The brakes failed on my 1968 Spider [RHD] yesterday - somewhat alarmingly.
The fluid hasn't dropped - the pedal just goes straight to the floor with no resistance. It isn't possible to pump up pressure. (The pushrod is still attached)
I suspect the master cylinder has failed - however it is...
Anyone had any trouble getting these?
Mine broke down last Thursday and been trying to get one since. The few places saying they can get them are either highly priced but very few. Mainly they say 2 days then nothing arrives to collect?
I've got siezed brake and clutch master cylinders on my Sud Ti QV and I need to find someone who can refurbish them or I need a replacement new /s/h parts. Since Wynn Lear ceased trading I'm struggling to find a supplier. Does anyone have any suggestions?
The time has come to replace the trouble & strife's ageing 147 and she wants a Mito... So being more than happy for her to have another Alfa (Number 10 in fact) I've been looking at the Sportiva or Live limited edition with the 0.9 85bhp Twinair engine.
She'll be doing around 250...
I'm considering changing both the master and slave cylinders on my GT 3.2 clutch to see if I can improve the clutch, which is currently unacceptably stiff.
Can anyone who has done this job give me a rough idea of how long it is likely to take?
My understanding is that the slave cylinder is...
Hello everyone. I have an Alfasud 1500ti engine with twin Dellertos and electronic ignition in my car. The engine is running very lumpy and backfiring on the overrun. To check that there was a good spark at each cylinder I connected a Gunson timing light to each HT lead in turn while the engine...
Car lost power coming home from work, 15ks checked plugs ,connections sprayed every connector i could find with elec spray,checked fuses, hooked it up to multiscan ,no error codes, has fuel,doesn't seem to be firing on the two middle cylinders, any Ideas ,please p.s disconnected Maf no difference.
I have ran into a big problem with my GTV. It is a 3,0 from 1997 (Phase 1) 190000km at the meter.
I bought the car in november and drove the car for two weeks before it was put away for the wither and the planned respray. The engine ran very well, no problems, misfires etc.
So for 4 months i'm having a problem that NOBODY can solve. Cylinders 2 and 3 are not firing up. I changed the spark plugs, coils, ECU and boardcomputer, injectors, and changed the lambda sensor today, cause the diagnostics showed an error on the last lambda sensor.
All the mechanics are now...

I need your help.
I recently changed the Clutch friction disc and pressure plate and at the same time fitted a new slave cylinder/thrust bearing.
On the ALfa 156 2000 2.0TS models the thrust bearing is sold as a complete unit with the thrust bearing part of the slave cylinder.
do somebody have an opinion on a problem I had last week.
During normal driving conditions the EOBD control lamp started blinking.
Manual says: Continiue at lesser speed until lamp stops blinking (=starts constant light) to garage.
Did so - 20 km, except lamp did not stop blinking.
what could be causing cylinders 1&2 to soot up,using oil as well,new plugs correct heat range,it's running fine .i've removed maf no difference,slight back smoke sometimes out of exhaust any got any ideas/
