  1. Dripping 159?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi After it rains I notice that reversing out of my parking space leaves a long thin trail of water. It's not red in colour and it evaporates so I suspect that rain is collecting somewhere and being chucked out as I reverse and drive off. Clearly I can have a good look myself to see where it...

  5. Chassis Underseal - Dripping?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Nipped under my Giulietta this evening to measure the bore of the exhaust. Whist under there I noticed what appears to be a messy application of underseal on the chassis. Is this how they generally leave the factory?

  7. Oil Dripping From Filter & Annoying Automatic A/C

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My Problems keep coming :confused: 1) 2-3 week ago, I found oil leakage in the parking zone at work. I checked under the car and I found the the filter is leaking oil. I was surprised, because I replaced it 3 months ago, with the oil, anyway. I went to the workshop, they said the filter doesn't...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Well, I had an (waiting) accident with my 156 2.5 V6 (1999). The waterpump failed and the engine ran hot. Boiling hot. Water leaked out from the pump. But also som oil was dripping from the engine on to the first horizontal part of the exhaust. It wasn't a huge amount, but when it dripped on...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello all, Ok, so this week I've noticed a damp patch spread out from under the front of the car. After I stop, there is no initial patch (I've checked after about 5-10mins) but over space of an hour or so it appears. Further investigation shows that it comes from the bottom (out of normal...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just been for a drive in the 156 and got caught in a very very heavy downpour. When i parked up outside the house (2 wheels on the pavement so car was leaning slightly) noticed water dripping very quickly into the passenger footwell very close to the centre console. Only lasted about a minute...

    Alfa MiTo
    As many of you will know it's been pretty wet over the past few days, anyway I've just pulled up in the work car park and I'm sitting listening to water dripping seemingly from inside the door panels. At first I thought it was just the driver's side but I'm actually getting it in stereo! Has...
  12. Water dripping from underneath

    Collected a new 1.4MA from the dealer today.:) When I got home (about 15 miles) there was water dripping from underneath the car.:eek: It is rear of the engine about level with the bulkhead and dead centre of the car. The water is completely clear so it is not coolant or washer fluid and not...

    Alfa 145 & 146
    I just noticed the other day while it was raining that water was coming down the thick left-most cable (LHD) next to the fusebox. There wasn't too much of it and it's the first time I have noticed it. When I tried to follow the leak up with my hand I couldn't trace it easily and i think it was...

  16. My girl dripping wet. Red, hot pics inside!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hot weather today, wasn't it? :cool: :lol: I picked up the Cup from Autolusso this morning after having some bits and pieces done, including the Brembos refurbished. They may be excellent mechanics down there, but their yard is very dusty so I gave the car a quick going over with a bucket and...

    General Alfa Discussion
    Hi all, Noticed that when I started my 156 GTA yesterday with the aircon turned on that a clear liquid was dripping from underneath the car. Not a heavy flow, just a drip every 15 seconds or so. The liquid was odourless and evaporated fairly quickly leaving no stain. Any ideas? Is this...

    Just changed the turbo on my car (156 jtd) and it now goes really well. Took it around the block and there are clouds of white smoke and oil dripping from the exhaust :cry: When I changed the turbo I put new oil and filter in (but didn't drain all the old stuff out) as it was looking v.low...
  20. Dripping condensation on both windscreens

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Whenever I return to my car in the evening both windscreens are misted up with lots of condensation on the inside. The door windows are perfectly clear though. If it was a leak, as other threads here suggest, wouldn't it affect the door windows as well ? I see no evidence of a leak though ...
