    Hello everyone. This week I had a problem with my 147 16v jtdm. I had to change a complete transmission, left side. I used one of a GT with same engine. After installing I got the error of the abs vdc and esp. I looked at it and noticed that the sensor of abs was broken, replaced it and problem...

    Hi all, Please remove if not allowed, or move to the right location. I did read the private sellers rules and it looks like I should post in this thread as it's an Oil spec directly related to all Giulietta's, Mito's, 4C etc... Halfords is selling the exact same oil for: - 5L = £47.99 - 1L =...

    Pre remap, my clutch would slip a bit coming off fastish roundabouts in 3rd if I put my foot down a bit too rapidly. Post remap it got worse, but very quickly I got used to the feeling and very rarely got it to slip. One syndrome immediately after remap on motorway was a bit of a juddering at...

    So my MiTo decided it will randomly cut out the ASR/ABS/STM/Hill-holder/etc. That means the DNA system won't engage when this happens either. I took it to CMH Umhlanga and they say the wheel sensors are fine and there's nothing they can do about it because the system reports everything is...

    Hello. I have a GT 1.9 JTD and since replacing the battery this morning the ESP and ASR lights are now on. Does anyone know how to reset as the problem was not there before the battery change. I have read on opther forums about an ECU reset will this sort the problem. cheers

    I have had this come up on my 147 twice in as many days, after looking on here a old battery or bad connection in that area may be the cause, does anyone have anymore info on this problem? luckily the car is still under warranty so it wont be to bad if its something big. Cheers
  12. Alfa 145 & 146
    Gentlemen, I need some help here. I've been getting smell of fumes in my car especially when it goes above 3000. It's as though the engine is on flames. The smell is intolerable that I have to get the windows down when I'm pushing the fella. Any advise please?:rant:

    How do you turn the ESP off, if you can at all :confused: ?
  14. Esp

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Do all 147s have ESP or was it an option? I'm not talking about ASR or ABS, which mine has in addition to ESP. If it's what ALfa call VDC, then it isn't called that on the dash when it flashes up a failure message in the cold recently (new battery required I think...).

    Just returned from a day out and on the way back the dash lit up with the warnings; ABS and ESP system failures. When I got home I jumped out the car and I could still hear the ESP electroncs still running so I have had to disconnect the battery to stop it from running. Has anyone come across...
