  1. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hello! It has come to my attention that my egr valve don’t act like it’s supposed to. I’ve changed it thinking that was the problem but no luck there. I’ve read the OBD2 and it says a PTC% of 3.9. I connected my multimeter and it said 1.07 V. It’s always the same PTC, flooring it on the motor...
  2. Want to Buy Wanted 159 SW

    General Alfa Classifieds Section
    I'm looking to buy a an Alfa 159 Sportwagon. I'm in two minds about what I want. I'm either looking for a lower mileage manual V6, or a newer 2.0l diesel. The ideal car would be in metallic red with no more than 80,000 miles on the clock. This will be a second car, so I am happy to wait, and...

  3. Alfa Giulia
    Hi guys, thought I would ask for help as I don’t know if I overfilled or not. My car is a 2.2d and it does have dipstick but it’s absolutely useless when topping the car up. Used the electronic reading when topping up, took me about half an hour when topping up as I was too scared of...
  4. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Afternoon Alfisti. Last year I bought a 156 Sportwagon off Pud237 (Dan) to help out my auntie who needed a cheap workhorse to run around to work and back in. Her circumstances have changed and she needs something with a towbar, before I could really arrange anything she had another car lined up...
  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    In Feb 2013 I bought my first car, a 147 Sport Q2, which in Feb 2017 I sold to Pud237 in part-ex to buy a GTA - Farewell to the 147 Q2... – A few months later, Dan told me he’d sold the 147 to a local couple who then retired and moved to Anglesey. Occasionally I would ask about how it was doing...
  6. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi everyone. I'm a relatively new Alfa owner, and absolutely love the car. However I have some issues with it, that I'm trying to figure out. One of the problems that I'm having is that it sometimes won't hit boost in 2nd gear. The boost gauge shows pressure as normal, but the car runs like a...

    Hi All, A belated happy new year to everyone! I have had my Giulietta 2.0 jtdm 170 for 6 months now, and am looking at putting an intake and a tune on it in March for some extra oomph and even more bags of torque :p However, just wondering those of you who have done the same, which of these...

    2008 Diesel Spider 200 BHP in good condition. Only selling as I am taking on a new project and need the space. Roof works as it should! Timing belt & other important items all sorted during 2020. No service history book but perhaps more useful are receipts for virtually all work done since new...
  11. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    First 2 weeks of owning my 2.4 210 sportwagon and I’ve enjoyed the car a lot (over 2000 miles already). I’ve noticed some slight issues however. On harsh acceleration above 3.5k it puts out a fair bit of black smoke, and from lower revs on moderate to harsh acceleration there’s a quite high...
  12. Alfa MiTo
    Hi I was hoping to get some help on an issue I am currently struggling with. I was changing the timing chain on my 2010 MiTo, which went well. I am now in the process of putting it all back together. I ran into an issue, because I found a small torn screw and I have no idea where it is from...
  13. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hello Has anyone used some of these diesel fuels in their jtdm engines? Yesterday I bit the bullet and tried, filled half a tank with Neste My fuel. Results were instantaneous. Car runs smoother, sounds better and there is no smoke coming from the exhaust even when accelerating hard. I have...
  14. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, I'm Elod from Hungary and I need some help with my Giulietta My Giulietta makes some strange noises coming from the engine bay. I can hear it only at idle and low RPMs. It is a whining (bearing??) noise maybe. After I start it up it whines. If I turn on my seat heating, or turn on my...
  15. Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    Hey all, Has anyone tinkered about with a HP diesel pump before? I'm based in a ChemEng research lab at the moment, finding that we need a pump capable of delivering high-pressure (~200 bar) at a low-ish flow rate (~10 mL / min), of a solution of smashed up plant bits (d < 1.4mm) in water...

    “Diesel in Strasbourg is almost over. The city council, meeting Monday, validated a schedule of progressive and permanent bans of the most polluting vehicles. Clearly, no diesel engine will be allowed to snore in the Alsatian capital from January 1, 2025” (Google translated)
  17. Alfa MiTo
    Hi All, My daughters 2010 1.6 diesel has developed the dreaded power steering failure! at the moment it resets if it is turned off and then back on, I recently bought her the car from a garage where it had sat around for a good six months. my first thought is the battery, just had a look and it...
  18. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey guys. 2 days ago I bought this horrid Alfa Romeo 147 for pennies as it's seen better days. I bought it for the same amount it's worth in scrap, don't mind spending money on it to make it nice. So when I initially inspected the car the car sounded like a diesel. I suspected it was a bad...
