  2. Clutch won't engage

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi folks, I tried to start the car the other day, but the clutch pedal felt looser than normal and the clutch would not engage. Any ideas as to the cause of this? I should mention, it's a 2002 147 2.0 Twin Spark. I though initially that the cold weather could have perished a pin in the...

    I've a 3-month old 159 2.2l Selespeed, living in Singapore. During first 2 months, I had maybe 2 or 3 occasions where I was stopped dead, and couldn't engage reverse gear, had to bring the stick to neutral, and then shifted again and then it worked. Same with shifting to 1st. Brought it to...

  9. can't engage gear when engine running

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi. I have a 2.0 147 51 plate. 2 days ago while driving I felt the clutch pedal slip a little,only a little but enough for me to get the "oh no" feeling, like something giving way. The car was stuck in gear. I could still drive in that gear with high revs etc to take off and I could pull it out...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    for a fuller history of this car see "system failure warnings" under "roobloke". i am repeating an earlier post under that thread as i'm afraid it will be missed there. i have had a long running problem with regular vdc and abs alarms but that is all they were, they didn't seem to affect the...

  17. Cruise Control won't engage

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My 156 facelift's cruise control won't engage. I've checked the microswitch on the clutch pedal and it seems that the switch is not being pressed by the pedal when the pedal is up. Is there a piece of rubber that should slide onto the metal protrusion on the clutch pedal? without anything on...

  19. 4th gear hard to engage and disengage

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have a strange problem with one of the gears. (2002 SpiderTwinspark 2ltr) After I drive the car for over 30 mins, 4th gear becomes very hard to dis-engage. It can take a fair amount of force to pop it into neutral. Engaging 4th straight away is ok. After I drive the car for say another 30...
  20. Clutch - Engage ?

    Alfa 155
    Chaps, I'm on my second 155 and Im again very unhappy with the way the clutch is engaged, it almost feels like you hold the pedal at a point but the clutch moves by itself to engage. Thus jerky engagement in first and second gear, and even in fifth when moving at pace. I know that there is a...
