  1. Losing the faith...

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    My S2 has refused to run properly all summer - the fuel seems to run back to the tank and the electric fuel pump - brand new - cannot pull the fuel out of the 2\3 full tank. If I get underneath and manually pump the fuel to the pump, it's fine. The problem is that when I start the car it fires...
  2. Leap of faith

    Introduce Yourself
    My history is with Japanese and German cars, having my lovely V8 M3 for nearly 7 years with nothing coming close to making me consider changing it. Until the Giulia Quadrifoglio. With every review being positive and some careful consideration for several seconds I've ordered one and will...
  3. I've lost faith with Alfa Romeo.

    General Alfa Discussion
    As a lot of you know i've got a 156 SW with 300,000 miles on the clock but because my car is effectively a tool of my trade, I decided to replace it and bought a Giulietta from a Dealer but as documented on this forum, from day one it hasn't driven properly, the steering being the main problem...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    After removing the wheel arch liners and a bit of poking and prodding a hole either side has appeared in the inner wheel arch. They both start at the point where the outer wing in secured onto the innerwing and join up with the large hole that is covered by a oval plastic bung. Is there any...
  5. I'm losing faith in the Police

    General Alfa Discussion
    I used to think that people who complained about the Police were frankly, people who drew the attention to themselves but seriously I got stopped yesterday for.... Having my side lights on!! I'll give you the conversation... The office blue and twos and pulls me over: Officer: "The reason...
  6. how do you keep the faith?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The 147 is starting to make me dislike her... if its, not bulbs going out, its dodgy brakes, if its not brakes its tyres (i kno they are a consumable) and if its not that its the handbrake cable, and if not that its the badly designed wiper linkage. All of that cost me £550 this month to sort...

    General Motoring Discussion
    My wife has a 2008 Honda CRV for lugging the kids around in. We bought it new when the new shape came out and it wasn't cheap. IIRC it was around 25k. So far we've had a few niggly issues (rear screen just smashed one day when she shut the tail gate, centre roof interior lamp dropped off the...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My Wife’s Alfa is with us since around 3 months now. First few weeks where ok, now the honeymoon is over. Car would not start, so changed the Crank sensor. It was not that, so changed the Cam sensor too. (Done with cam belt in place). Run ok for a week the same problem again. So ripped it...
  9. Losing faith

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I bought my 04 plate 156 in January from a main dealer. The previous owner had had it 3 years and then chopped it in. The dealer stuck an extra years warranty on it and then I bought it. I flew from the midlands up to Edinburgh to collect it and drove it back (airfare: less than the cost of...
  10. Hi to all Alfa owners, keep the faith!

    Introduce Yourself
    I bought my first Alfa, a 1.9 JTD GT in August '04, Many miles later I'm well pleased and I would buy another. I always enjoy driving it, so much nicer than a run-of-the-mill tin box. My son has just bought a 5-year old 156 and I think I will be getting to know this Alfa site a lot better in the...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just had to have my 159 back to the dealership after it decided to start billowing smoke from under the bonnet! I have only done 1400 miles in my new JTD and was rather surprised to see clouds of thick white smoke pouring out of the wheelarches and around the bonnet edges. Fortunately I was...
