    My remapped (up to 210bhp from 170) 147 Ducati Corse just scraped its way through its first MOT since the new lower emission limit. The tester said that I'll probably be lucky to get it though another test the way it is. Is this likely to be mainly due to the remap, or could it be something...

    hello what is the difference between weber emission carburetor (newer type) vs the old types? I know the new ones got Venturi balance adjustment screw and some other jets and emulsion tubes but is that it? can i rebuild a newer type and use the parts from a older one? like jets and emulsion...
  3. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I have 56 plate 2.2jts 159 and I have noticed it has been a bit down on power. Nothing too noticeable and all the gauges and fluid levels are reading as they should. I thought maybe the exhaust had come loose somewhere so when it went in for the MOT I asked them to take a look. They couldn't see...

  5. Alfa Giulietta
    The FL diesel Giuliettas have the euro 5+ specification. Does that means they are euro 6 compliant? From wikipedia: "In 2014 range all available engines complies with the 'Euro 5 +' (Euro 6 ready) emission standard." Alfa Romeo Giulietta (940) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia What does...
  6. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My 156 v6 failed the Swedish equivalent of MOT a couple of weeks back. This is driving me nuts... CO 0.7 (0.5 max) - fail CO2500 0.9 (0.3 max) - fail (fast idle) HC 212 (100 max) - fail lambda 1.03 (0.97 to 1.03) - pass I have replaced this far: 1) The thermostat (was stuck) 2) cat (I had...
  7. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Morning The engine emission light is showing on my TS. I suspect a lamba sensor problem, and have read to 'how to' on checking them. My question is, once the correct sensor is fixed, will the light go out when the car is restarted, or do I need to reset the light using a computer ? Thanks Wayne
  8. General Motoring Discussion
    Apparently the new electric small hatch from the blue propellor accelerates 0-62 faster than the M3! :wow: It won't do that for long, one suspects, with the effect of a heavy foot on battery life but the 650cc motorcycle engine extends range "up to 186 miles" before more fuel or recharging is...
  9. General Motoring Discussion
    Just taken delivery of a demo at work for two weeks because we've put in chargers. It's quite a pretty little thing. Fully electric for those not aware of the car. Relatively cheap costing mid-teen £k's and you lease the batteries for a modest monthly fee so there's no renewal, disposal or...
  10. Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    My v6 top end rebuild is now complete :) Just the hurdle of getting an MOT. I replaced both head gaskets (ful gasket kit so manifold etc gaskets also), valve stem oil seals and both the '1st stage' lambda sensors , front and rear (bosch, exactly as original). MOT test today, passed on all...
  11. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Guys, The car according to MOT has a lot of emissions. When I start up the engine and go at the back of the car where the exhaust are, I smell petrol....The emissions are high. I use an injector cleaner now. The tank is still half way full. What shall i do about this? Shall I wait for the...

    Guys, Hoping some of you experienced/learned people out there can share some experience and intel on the following issues with my 2003 156 2.0 JTS. The car has had little use in the last year whilst I've done a few jobs on it - sorted an alarm snag and fitted a new radiator amongst others. I'm...

  17. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Anyone tried these for a replacement MAF? Emission Also has anyone tried repacing just the sensor rather than the whole unit? I shan't be buying dodgy ones of ebay and want the genuine BOSCH ones but am keen not to be ripped off! Cheers
  18. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Anyone ever checked, or changed the charcoal filter (Gasoline vapour filter) on the S4 spider? Apparently it is under the right front wing, behind the plastic wheel arch guard. It might look like this, but I am not sure, this is made by Savara. Any ideas?
