  1. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 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...

  6. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 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...
  7. 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...
  8. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 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...
  9. 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...

    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)
  12. 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...
  13. 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...

  19. Alfa Giulia
    Hi, I have gone past 40k miles on my 17 plate Giulia 2.2 Diesel and my rear brake pads/discs are worn, and the fronts at 15%. I have been advised to replace everything, front and back. Do I need to use genuine parts to avoid invalidating the warranty? Dealers have quoted me £950 inc VAT...
  20. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    So I'm working on a 2010 Vauxhall Insignia 2.0 CDTi, I know it's not an Alfa but I'm on this forum anyway and it's pretty much the same engine as the 2.0 JTDM, so I hope you don't mind me asking here. The VX forums are very quiet unfortunately. I bought the car for a £500 with a snapped...
