I know leaky footwells are a common & tricky issue on the 166, but I found out yesterday definitely NOT to park mine on a slope with nose pointing upwards! Parked it overnight Thurs on our (admittedly) steep drive, next day loads of water in the passenger & rear LHS footwells after heavy rain...
After a bit of fun around the paddock track, the 156 Sportwagon decided to set the grass on fire. We had it more or less under control by the time the Fire Brigade arrived but were very grateful to them for ensuring it wasn't going to spring to life again!
The offending car is hiding in shame...
After filling the swear jar trying to finally sort out my password, I managed it!! :-)
Happened to be out for a coffee last weekend and sat down next to this gent who started talking to me about my spider 916, a lovely fella and a real Alfisti who told me he was 86yrs old and the...
Your thoughts appreciated on this little scenario!
I have had my GT for 2 months now and it's been running well to this point. Autolusso had it in at 1000 mile check after they did full engine rebuild. it has 45 k on the clock. I have noticed oil/fuel smell coming through the air con on...
I normally lurk on the classics lounge but after quite a bit of paint work my engine bay is very dusty on top of the years of oil and grime so it needs a good clean.
Can anyone recommend a good product to shift most of this, a friend had suggested a snow foam product but remembering...
147 1.9 JTDM dry flapping noise and juddering 2.5-3.5 revs (new videos added!)
I have a nasty problem with my 147 Ducati Corse ( 1.9 JTDM )
I've had the problem for a while now, over a month or so, but it has recently gotten worse and worse. When accelerating, between 2.5-3.5 revs...
I am looking for a dry (non-oiled) sport air filter for my JTD. There are a lot of oiled filters but i don't want to mess up my mass flow sensor. I don't want a open filter, just one that fits into the original filter box.
I hope you guys can end my search.
Is anyone familiar with or have owned a alfa with the dry twin clutch transmission which is the tranny being used in the 4C. I understand this system can only handle the power output of the 240 hp 4 cylinder engine. what kind of mileage should one expect if the car is driven as intended (not on...
Following on from this thread:
whereby there was a split in my turbo hose which belched smoke from the exhaust for 200 odd miles - my turbo today has started to make a "dry bearing" noise from about 2500...
I am considering a Dry Sump set-up on the 2.0 TS 8V turbo engine we are building. Any recommendations, experience, suggestions will be appreciated.
Realize we will not have a lot of accessories to worry about driving (no AC, electric fan, electric tach, etc) so should be relatively simple.
ok ok ok so i made a huge ****** up. i ran out of diesel. Ive fueled up now and all is ok , well...................however, my air bag light is now fully on! ( the red one ) and engine managment light - any suggestions?
I have a problem with my ABS distribution block...and its driving me nuts!:lol:
The story so far...So symtons are pulling to the right when braking, ok no problem its probably some air, so I'll just bleed the brakes.
So out came the one-man pressure bleeding kit and I went through...
I hope this is not a stupid question but ive noticed that after rainfall my car is wet for days whilst other cards have dried out? Im baffled by why this is ? I bought the car a few weeks ago, not sure if it was waxed or not.
Anyone have any ideas
