    My Alfa Ti died on me this morning when doing the final day of school run. There is a hissing noise that suggests boost leak and it has been noticeable for a while now. Over the weekend I cleaned the EGR valve just as a precaution to eliminating one of the potential causes. It was serviced a...

    Twice in my 5 days of ownership she has died, both times I have driven somewhere, switched off the engine and then switched on the radio as I'll be waiting for a few minutes. Both times the remote has refused to work at all. The first time I replaced the fob battery as I was near a branch of...

    Driving my 2007 2.4D 159. Slowed down to go through road works and the engine died. Could get it started but it would run for a few seconds at no more than a lumpy idle then stop again. Towed it home. Checked fuel level, OK. Thought it might have been a battery problem so recharged battery...

  10. Key to lock my car just died!

    Alfa MiTo
    Got to work today and parked (thankfully) in a secured coverd car park and went to lock and no beep at all from either lock or unlock. Hoping it might just be battery and will check at home with the spare, but quite worried. As I say hope it is just the battery in the key at this stage so...

I pulled over - stopped the engine. Started again, whining still there in Neutral - called my dealer, who told...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Last night I was approaching a major roundabout in rush hour in my 2001 Spider TSpark. As I slowed to give way and enter the roundabout, the car seemed to stall, I tried to restart but it was dead and the hazards wouldn't come on either. It was terrifying, had to call the police to uplift it...

    A couple of weeks ago my engine sounded like it was running on 3 cylinders. After being investigated by a local garage it was found that I need a total top end rebuild and have been told the bill could be upwards of £1700!!!!!!!. I'm thinking that it makes more sense to get a recon engine as...

    I've updated my other thread on 24v camshafts with this same question but thought I should also start a new thread for this new (and different) problem!
