  3. What's your worst ever motoring delay?

    General Motoring Discussion
    A post in another thread made me wonder this. I think mine was during a road-trip in Nevada/California/Arizona. We had planned a very short driving day into Yosemite, so we had lots of time to explore. Except the snow had stayed longer than usual that year. A 1 hour drive into the park from...

  6. Throttle response in D, whats your delay?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, My 1.4 MA is custom remapped and I noticed the car would sometimes in 6th gear jerk, like it was cutting power and revving real fast. And in lower gears it would sometimes cut of when hitting high RPM's, like power cutoff. I suspected the knock sensor registering detonation and...

  8. Headlight washers delay

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, I think most of us are frustrated (who have xenon's) when every time you spray windsheald liquid to clean windsheald it also sprayes on headlights. For example VW is programed that headlights are washed only every 5 times you wash windscrean. Maybe you have some ideas how to do it for Alfa...

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone had any ideas how to fix this problem. My 156 JTS wipers seem to take a while to work after starting the car. They work fine after the car has been running for two or three minutes and a few months ago they just stopped when I was driving on a dual carriageway -...
