I want to be able to remove a exchanger on an 8v Diesal Multijet as one of the pipes have cracked so that I can braze it. I can only see a plane circle on the inner central thread , I presume this...

    Hi, I have umplugged and blocked my EGR and the car is alot better off. According to a local club Alfa mechanic there is no point in the EGR now and I want to remove it. So capping the intake and the exchaust is ok, but the two heating hoses, is there anything I can use there?

    following on from my other post, I'm now in to the process of removing the old oil heat exchanger but it won't budge. I've removed the oil filter, the two coolant pipes, and also the two Allen bolts that I weren't sure what they're there for, but removed them anyway. I'm working in the road...

    Hi, my car has started sucking oil into the coolant. I suspect the oil cooler, where the oil filter fits but it doesn't look a great job. Has anyone tackled these before and if so, what's involved? I was hoping to get a socket / spanner on the 27mm nut and simply undo but as this is an Alfa...

    What would be the symptoms of oil in the antifreeze/coolant reservoir? It is overflowing and leaking onto the ground. It has been suggested that it may be a problem with the oil coolant heat exchanger. The car has been running fine, no exhaust discolouration or over heating. What sort of cost...

    I'm about to finish my RWD\mid engine project on my 156's, and had maybe silly question. The hose that runs from the engine block to oil\water exchanger(removed) and ends into thermostat housing, in my opinion can be removed and tapped. If other engine bank miss that coolant gallery, so guess...
