  1. Alfa Giulietta
    Went to look at an automatic diesel 2.0 JDTM-2 2013 Alfa Romeo Giulietta with 80,000 miles on it. The car was lovely, really well-kept with leather seats, sunroof etc. A few things needed fixed up on the car like the wheels were a bit scuffed and a new timing belt needed put in. They have the...
  2. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi everyone. I'm a relatively new Alfa owner, and absolutely love the car. However I have some issues with it, that I'm trying to figure out. One of the problems that I'm having is that it sometimes won't hit boost in 2nd gear. The boost gauge shows pressure as normal, but the car runs like a...

  4. Alfa MiTo
    Hi all, I have bought a MiTo 1.4tb 2008 155bhp a couple of weeks ago and after driving for a while I noticed a weird sound when accelerating on full throttle (I added a video of it). Weirdly it only happens when driving and when the car is in gear. It also only happens when going full...
  5. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have just changed a failed thermostat on my GTV Twin Spark, and it has also had a new radiator and water pump so the cooling system should be very effective. Before, the gauge would never move from 50 at idle, and got up to the first mark past 50 during normal driving. After parking up and...
  6. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi Everyone, My Brera ('07, 80k, 2.2 JTS) has an issue to crops up every now and again. Listen to this: As far as I can tell, it's mostly when it is cold and a quick restart cures it. The idle is fine but as you ease off the clutch and into the accelerator, the chugging/clunking sound starts...
  7. Alfa MiTo
    Hi I was hoping to get some help on an issue I am currently struggling with. I was changing the timing chain on my 2010 MiTo, which went well. I am now in the process of putting it all back together. I ran into an issue, because I found a small torn screw and I have no idea where it is from...

    As it says really, which fuel do you prefer in your 916 and why? Craig

  10. Alfa GTA
    Hi everyone, can anyone advise me on where I can get a workshop manual, ideally I just need an engine diagram, so I can have some reference points to work off to strip and rebuild the engine myself.... any help would be much appropriated Thanks Tom
  11. Alfa MiTo
    Hey Guys, So I've noticed a slight annoyance with my MiTo in the fact that when going up a slight hill I have to be in quite a low gear to actually make it up. I have a 1.6 JTDM 09 plate. The turbo seems to kick in about 2500 rpm (let me know if this is too delayed, but I'm used to it now)...
  12. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi guys. Alfa 159 Lusso 16V JTDM (deisel) please can anyone tell me what's come off here? (See pics). It looks like it's either a little orange hose or a cap. What's it for and what's it called?? It's obvs to do with coolant since as it blew off, I don't have any in the engine any more! What...
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey everyone! So a month or so ago while driving on the highway my check engine light started blinking. So i pulled over and let it sit for awhile. When i started it again, i noticed that the engine vibrates, pulsating sound came from the exhaust, it felt funny. Noticed that there was oil in...

  16. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Dear proud alfa owners, I'm one of the proud owner of a 97 gtv (916) with autodelta modifications, including the 3.5L engine conversion. I bought the car years ago, in a very bad shape, restoring it since that and I just love it, love it love it. Make me smile every time I drive it...
  17. 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? I know there had been some early issues fixed by Alfa and cars made after april 2017 should be better. I currently drive Giulietta 2.0 Diesel which...
  18. Alfa 159, Brera & 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...
  19. Alfa Giulietta
    Hello, I am wondering if anyone might be to help with some advice. For a number of weeks my giulietta 2.0l Jtdm-2 has been having trouble starting but only when the engine is hot. I have had the car serviced but did not help. I have changed the crankshaft sensor and the problem is still there...
  20. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi everyone, last night my 2008 159 2.4 jtdm 168k started a regen as i pulled up in front of a shop. I gave it the ocassional blip of the throttle to help things along. In the side mirror, i could see soot like smoke exit the exhaust. I blip the throttle again, and the car seems to go to max...
