  1. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    The other week we were out and I became conscious of a rattle/tinkling sound coming from....... sounded like the gearbox. :titanic: I imagined a bearing or syncro hub eating itself (I am paranoid about my gearbox by the way). But no, wait a minute, the noise goes up and down with the revs even...
  2. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi After a couple of years of mostly town driving ( my 2006 159 on 136,000) we went to the "get engine checked" dashboard warning message and thereafter into limp home mode. Fault code P2002 - blocked DPF. You know the story.... Unplugging the MAF overrided (if thats a proper word)...
  3. Alfa Giulietta
    I was on my way to work this morning - just cruising on the motorway - approx 100 km/H, suddenly there was a LOUD whining noise, and the Info Center went bananas - all kind of messages! I pulled over - stopped the engine. Started again, whining still there in Neutral - called my dealer, who told...
  4. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Found this on the ARBB - its an interesting H2, not complete but OK - his comments on about a disproportionate number of Alfa's back in the 60's were rear ended because they had much better brakes than the 2 tonners on drums did was new to me; also about where to look for shunt damage - I'm...
  5. Alfa GTA
    need your opinion: Bilstein b14 pss or kw v 1? 735 euros vs 969 euros
  6. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Evening I have a 1.9 Jtd GT I have owned other jtd and petrol alfas and and on the whole have found them to be reliable cars. My GT has changed all this, it is one thing after the other. Since the night before Xmas eve I have had the followin: MAF sensor, fuel pipe, power steering pipe, air...
  7. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    As some of you will know, especially if you have read my rebuild thread (link in my sig) I have done a fair amount of work getting my Gtv to the stage it is. Today, as I don't run the car during the winter, I decided to start her up and get the oil flowing around the engine and clear the...
  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Okay... 1.9Jtdm 54 plate. Recent work: Rad Pas pump Cambelt Clutch Gearbox Wiper motor Battery. Now it won't fire. I suspect the alternator as the electrics have been sloooooow since returning from the 6 week stay at the garage. Assumed the battery and ran a 250 mile round trip, Friday...
  9. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi Folks, I've now had my 159 Ti for almost a year, love it and I've been lucky to have had no problems whatsoever. The warranty which came with the car (its a Dec 2008 Car) from Mngoletsi runs out in March and I am thinking of taking out a new one to protect against any expensive repairs...
  10. Motoring Images
    Lunchtime today on the drive were 2 twinspark GTV's, you can just see the blue ones bonnet in the picture. By 4pm; : Fortunately i have this to replace them with; : :):)
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi! I currently own a 1.6TS 156 and am thinking that I'd like a bigger engine. How much would it cost to fit a 2.5V6 that I've found for £300 on eBay? Is it a big job?
  12. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I've had my Ti nearly three years now and it still staggers me the comments people make about it (and probably endless ones when i'm not around) I live in Harrogate and lets just say it's Chelsea, Mayfair and Kensington in the main....Aston's, Porsches and Range Rovers everywhere....you are...
  13. Alfa 145 & 146
    I thought I'd do the decent thing and having won all the things required to do the job I replace the belts, water pump etc. Driving home from work on Saturday the temperature gauge had a 'blip' shot to 120 then went back down, so didn't pay it too much attention (I'm new to this Alfa lark) which...
  14. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Am I the only one that is always slightly worried when it's time to park your car in a crammed parking? I always try to look for an end of the line, so at least I can get the Bella as close as possible to the kerb and leave enough room for other cars to open their doors. It really aggravates...
  15. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Afternoon all! Long time lurker here... I just dropped my almost 3yr-old brera in at the garage for it's first MOT and as the warranty is about to go I asked them to check over a couple of things: First up, one morning all of a sudden the car stopped beeping on lock/unlock, and the "alarm...
  16. General Alfa Discussion
    Well it has been confirmed that the rack is completely knackered. The 156 was in the shop yesterday and there was nothing they could do to fix it. The guys stripped and lubed it best they could and made it a little better but they say that there is nothing else they can do:cry:. To top it all...
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    After having my bella up on the ramps today for some work to the gearbox I ended up with a new longer list of things to sort :cry: - Leaky CV Boot - Leaking oil from the gearbox - Corroded cat section inc mounts - Need new handbrake cable - Play in the transverse links - Blow from the rear of...
  18. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I have to share this one with you. Picture this... RC walks out his local Alfa garage with a huge grin on his face :D having just signed on the dotted line, trading in his 06 Brera JTDM for a shiny new Black Brera S. He embarks on the 1hr drive home looking forward to coming back in 2 weeks...
