    Alfa MiTo
    Hey, I own an Alfa MiTo Lusso, 1.4 16v, the non turbo one my old dipstick rusted and snapped, fortunately I got it out, however it wasn't until yesterday when I checked my oil with my new dipstick, I couldn't see any on the dipstick (car was still war after 20 mile drive). I added less than a...
  2. Dipstick?

    Alfa Giulia
    I cant seem to find an oil level dipstick on my G? I know there is a menu in the car status but is that it? No physical way of checking the oil level?
  3. GTV V6 2.0TB gearbox dipstick

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I was under the impression that all V6 GTVs have a dipstick for checking and refilling the gearbox/differential oil. I was looking for it, but all in vain. Can I get a clear answer whether the 2.0TB has a dipstick or it's all done under the car?

    Alfa Giulia

  5. Dipstick ?

    Alfa Stelvio
    Thinking of returning to Alfa in a petrol Stelvio. An annoying thing about the car I defected to is that it doesn't have a physical dipstick. I hope I'm wrong but the pictures of the 2 litre petrol engine I've seen look like it doesn't have one either. So, does it ? Also, have they had PPF's...

  8. Oil dipstick 2.0TS / black vs yellow

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Mine GTV PH1 has an engine swap CF1 to CF2 and I have now black dipstick. Can’t recall which came from which engine but it left the workshop with black one. The first thing which confuses me is that it’s aligned the way that the cap/top of it prevents me from inserting it facing marks towards...
  9. Where to buy dipstick tube!?

    Alfa MiTo
    I had a quick look under the hood of my mito the other day after the change engine oil light appeared to find oil everywhere! It appears as though the tube which holds the dipstick in place has actualy snapped creating a loss of pressure. I have tralled the net and cant find this piece...
  10. Mito replacement dipstick

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi, I have a 2010 1.4 95 Turismo that has a rusty dipstick. I’m worried it may break off as it’s obviously weak about 1/2 way down when put back in. Please can anyone recommend somewhere I can get a replacement? Cheers

  12. Smokey dipstick tube?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I don't want anyone to go worrying me unduly but I have never seen smoke come out of the dipstick tube on any car I've owned before? Is this normal to see smoke coming out of the dipstick tube, I did pull the dipstick out while the engine was still running but surely it shouldn't smoke??? This...

  14. Help ID Dipstick part

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey all, Over a load of weekends I've been tipping away at de-swirl flapping my inlet manifold. It's all going back together now but I found a part which I can't remember where I detached it from. I have it marked as related to where the dipstick is usually bolted to the fuel pump assembly...
  15. Mito Dipstick help!

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi guys, strange problem so any urgent replies would be appreciated. One of my friends was looking in the engine bay of my Mito and as he was doing something the handle of the Dipstick has snapped off leaving the rest of it stuck inside. Getting the rest of the dipstick out is not a problem but...

  17. Dipstick being pushed out under load

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I assumed I hadn't quite pushed the dipstick back in yesterday and therefore had oil pump out all over the engine after an 11 mile drive. Reckon I topped up with 1litre and cleaned all oil off from under the car. Anyway, I've done some normal driving and have a wobble/thriobbing in 3rd gear...
  18. V6 Gearbox Dipstick leaking?

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi there, my V6 Gearbox is loosing some gearbox oil. Had to fill up around 400 ml within the last 4.000 km. Symptoms: If the car is driven below 3.000 rpm no leaking occurs. If the car is left in the garage also no oil on the ground. The more you rev the car, the more oil spill occurs...
  19. What a Dipstick!!!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Alfa Spider 2.0l TS CF1 I can't really believe I'm asking this but I've sort of run out of options. Let me start from the beginning... Checked oil - OK. Used a tin of engine flush as per directions (Wynns). Drained oil - didn't measure it - looked like used engine oil with nothing worthy of...
  20. Metal filings on dipstick

    Alfa Giulietta
    So I pulled the dipstick out of my GQV and found tiny metal filings in the oil and shat myself. Then I calmed down and thought about it and realised the end of the dipstick where the twisted metal sheath finishes, has a sharp edge. It seems to be grinding against the tunnel (or whatever you...
