  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My "rescued" 156SW oilcaholic has had a problem with the aircon since I got it. After an all-too-warm summer I've started replacing bits as they became available - new condenser rad at the front, new compressor etc ... Now, the compressor says I should also replace the expansion valve - which...
  2. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Managed to close the bonnet on my expansion tank cap which I removed to top up the level. This cracked the top of it so I have fixed it with epoxy putty for now. Looking at replacements online, they have a breather valve on them whereas mine does not! Anyone able to clarify? Car is a 2001 2.0TS...
  3. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi I am going to buy a new coolant expansion tank as mine was previously leaking and I bodged with a cable tie with limited success. Just wondering whether it's a difficult job and if anyone could share a step-by step guide? It's a Brera 2.2 Cheers ??
  4. Alfa MiTo
    My MiTO (155 bhp, TJet) expansion tank has developed a crack above the water line, so is slowly loosing coolant and should probably be replaced soon. My mechanic has been unable to source one from Alfa Romeo due to Brexit (I kid you not, AR suspend deliveries to the UK until 'deadlines' have...

    Hi Does anyone have an aftermarket part number for the lower pipe on the expansion tank of the 2003 156 SW Selespeed 2.0 JTS ? Thanks
  7. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I've read that a few people have had issues with the 159 coolant expansion tank leaking. Is there a way to test for this? My 159 1.9JTDm looses a bit of coolant over time but I can't find any obvious leaks. I'm wondering if there maybe an issue with the expansion tank.
  8. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi Could anyone tell me if this is supposed to plug in to left hand side nozzle top of engine that seems to join a pipe and return into cooling system at thermostat , only other choice is a plastic nozzle that seems redundant maybe from cabin heater? Or is it meant to just dangle and work as...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So i bought a alfa 156 some months ago. Had a sudden leak from the radiator. Changed it. Leaked again it was the water pump. Changed it. Stoped leaking anywhere and one day it started trough the expansion tank. Changed teh cap. Continued to leak ( not as much ). And one fine day ( yesterday it...
  10. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    My '75 Junior has no expansion tank, don't know why but that's how it came when I bought it. Now I haven't had any problems at all with overheating (several hundred miles in current UK hot temperatures)or losing water. So the question is, do I really need one?
  11. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi guys, I've just replaced the expansion tank on my 159 and I've just realised that I've not removed the metal pipes (circled below) from my old expansion tank and fit them onto my new one as the new tank came without this part. Can I leave this off or do you recommend I remove the tank and fit...
  12. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Had a small coolant leak that took an age to track down. Hairline crack at the rear of the expansion tank. Replaced and now all good. One to look out for, 2008 3.2 Brera.
  13. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    After I had my engine rebuilt I sourced a new header tank from EB Spares. I then bought some replica engine bay decals, but the decal set wasn't complete and was missing the one for the header tank. So I made my own. (used to be a graphic designer once upon a time) I'm pretty happy with the...
  14. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Further to my thread on my overheating 2.0 Twin Spark, does anybody know what the correct specs are for the expansion tank pressure cap? I've seen values from between 1 bar and 1.4 bar. It's for a 2001 CF3 2.0 Twin Spark.
  15. Alfa 155
    Hi, can anyone help with the water expansion tank level sensor rubber seal on a 155 V6. Cant find any on the net.
  16. Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Good Morning, Sorry to bother anyone but I've had a standard Expansion Tank without Sender for ages and finally got one to have the sensor for the Alfa Control. What I am finding odd is that since the tap is screw on rather than the metal on like the Alfasud i noticed that there is a very...
  17. Alfa Giulietta
    I never noticed it on my previous Multiair , but there's a duct that comes out between the back of the headlight housing and the expansion tank. Looks like it should have another pipe connected to it but it doesn't .... Too dark for a picture now, but what is it's purpose, I wonder.
  18. Alfa GTA
    Hi all First post from long term lurker, so please go easy on me! I'm looking to buy a friends 03 GTA soon but have one reservation - when looking at the car earlier today I noticed a reasonable amount of 'gunk' in the coolant expansion tank, which looks like the emulsion you get during a...
