    As the title says really. Very often when I go to turn it on after it had been left standing over night the revs drop and it almost stalls (sometimes it actually does) for a few seconds. After that everything works as it should. It used to do it only when very cold (around freezing) but now it...

  12. Another dealer dies....

    General Alfa Discussion
    I understand that Western Perth are closing - having lost Saab when they folded, they haven't found a suitable replacement and can't survive on Alfa alone. Their Glasgow and Edinburgh sites are continuing, and they hope to redeploy as many staff as possible - but it'd be a big commute...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All, I've bought a relatively low mileage ('04, 80k) straight car with every JTD problem listed on the forums. What I find most strange is that when driving, very carefully as it has lots of other issues, if I lifted off anything but very slowly the engine died and would only start when...

  17. 155 Starts for ~1sec then dies [1.8i TS -92]

    Alfa 155
    I've come across what could be a real bargain. The car is super cheap and looks fine as a daily driver.
