  12. 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...

    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...

    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...
