    Alfa Giulia
    Hi guys, would you please share your opinion regarding the petrol engines of the Giulia? I mean the 2.0 (200hp & 280hp)? Is it a reliable engine?

  6. 1.9JTDm compatible engine

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My son has been very unlucky, his 2006 159 aux belt pulley seized causing the belt to snap. The bad news is that it caught up the timing belt causing it to jump and we have at least two bent valves. Paying to repair is not economically viable. However dropping in a 2nd hand engine is just about...

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi All, My Giulietta QV that I just bought (48,000kms) has a weird whine/ tick noise when accelerating/ gaining revs, when driving and in park. It’s quite noticeable and doesn’t at all sound like a standard tick from injectors etc. It gets higher pitch with higher revs. Any ideas? The timing...
  11. Does your engine cool down slightly right after it hits operating temperature?

    Alfa MiTo
    Just had my MiTo serviced (2011 1.4 Multiair 135bhp TCT) including a coolant flush. Since then I noticed that the engine would come up to operating temperature (90°C), then dip slightly below for a short while, then go up to 90°C and stay there. Can someone with a petrol MiTo observe their...

  18. Longditudinal engine configuration

    Alfa Giulia
    After so many front wheel drive cars in my life it was really strange to rev up my Guilia and get a twist of the bonnet/chassis. All those years with transverse configurations and front wheel drive lulled me into a sense of normality. The Guilia just makes you want to explore the possibilities...

Accelerating hard in third up a hill, heading for about 6,000 rpm, the engine light started flashing steadily, then went off. Then...

    I've searched the forums, and the motor factors websites, and all I can find are these stands that bolt to the bell housing. When I rebuilt my V6 busso, in erm cough 1991 I had a stand that attached to the engine mounts, that you could rotate the engine about. But these do not seem to be...
