    Hi, My 159 Ti TBI has developed an infrequent and intermittent 'dip' in power, when getting up to speed (usually in 4th gear between 2.5k - 3.5k rpm but has happened once in 6th, too). The turbo appears to drop boost. The car doesn't lose speed, but won't accelerate. Sadly, I don't have an...
  2. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, I changed both sets of headlight bulbs on my Giulietta the other day. I noticed on my way into work today that my passenger side dip light is set lower than the driver side. I'm in the UK and it's a RHD car, so I'd have thought it should be the other way around? Any ideas on how I can...
  3. Alfa MiTo
    Hi Folks, I have a slight problem with my dip beam headlamps, like they have both stopped working. I don't believe in coincidences that both bulbs blow at the same time, so I recon its probably the relay, but I don't know where to look for it, I read somewhere it may be in the glovebox but all I...

    Dip stick (and I don’t mean me) So I have my Giulietta 1.7 and because I am so OCD or some might say “Anal” I checked my oil level. Pulled the dipstick and there was oil half way up the whole thing, rats, I will check it again in the morning and yes it was they same, so either my engine is...

    Since upgrading to HID, the Blue&me media (MP3) turns on when even dip beam is selected either manually of in auto. It turns on even of the radio is off on on radio. The HID are wired into the battery if that makes a difference and the CD is in the player. Any ideas? It's not really a...
  6. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, After owning a MiTo and forced to sell it about 1,5 years ago my girlfriend surprised me with an old 156 that has a few... age related issues. One of these issues is that, on a cold engine and in first gear, the acceleration just won't happen. To help solve this, I need to disengage the...

  8. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Afternoon peeps, I have recently acquired a (1995) 916S2 spider 2.0 ltr that has another dipstick in the boot. The previous owner mentioned a dipstick issue and I'm now wondering which is the correct one. I did an oil and filter change refilling with carefully measured 4.4 ltrs whch came above...
  9. Alfa GTA
    Just wondering, should the dip stick tube have a securing bracket ? Mine doesn't have one, pretty sure it should. Possibly missed off by the main dealer who changed the cambelt on reassembly.
  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Got my high beams in no problem. Nice and simple. However I found the dipped beam bulbs are not so straightforward. I must have freakishly big hands or something because there is no way on this earth I can squeeze my hand in that space and manage to fit 2 gripping fingers inside to pull the...
  11. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi, I've been lurking on here for a while. A great forum and I've learnt a lot already. I used to have a 156 1.6 which was a brilliant car. We've recently bought a 2.4 diesel Brera and it drives well but my only complaint is that if you put your foot down at say 1500 revs, it picks up ok but...

    After the bracket that supports the inlet manifold to the engine block being left in the engine bay unattached to anything ( when the car was in the garage when the previous had it) it seems at some point the bracket it has hit the alternator live and the shaft for the dip stick causing the dip...

    I've been doing battle with my 159's passenger side dip beam bulb...and losing! Access is impossible and I can't even be sure that the bulb is seated properly let alone get the bloody clip back on. Much shouting and cursing had ensued but to no avail. Is there a simple trick to this that I am...
