  4. No! the gearbox is falling apart (story with a happy ending)

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    The other week we were out and I became conscious of a rattle/tinkling sound coming from....... sounded like the gearbox. :titanic: I imagined a bearing or syncro hub eating itself (I am paranoid about my gearbox by the way). But no, wait a minute, the noise goes up and down with the revs even...

  6. 1.9 JTD RPM falling off while accelerating

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey Guys! My 2005 GT has an issue when in higher gears (4+) if I accelerate with the pedal fully pushed somewhere around 3000 RPM the revs just fall down to around 2200-2500 RPM. This doesn't happen in lower gears at all. (Please don't tell me my clutch is slipping) I'm also having an issue in...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Is it the time of year or just in general. I have been considering purchasing a spider since July last year and I have watched the prices fall with interest. Most of the cars for sale on ebay and autotrader have been from dealers and for sale for 6 months or more. Those you think are sold...

  12. The GTA is falling apart

    Alfa GTA
    It's like it know it's going to teh ring for some hard use and so it's going to spit it dummy out.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    A few months ago the 159 Ti's were hot property and commanding good money particularly over the standard Lusso variants, post Christmas the market is completely stagnant. I appreciate its a bad time of the year to sell and the snow hasn't helped either, but the other Ti's don't seem to be...

As he turned the car around on the road from Norwich I first saw the glossy black wedge of purest, hideous evil crouched on the forecourt that had piqued his interest. When the salesman squeezed...

  18. MiTo Headlamp Washers Falling Off

    Alfa MiTo
    So, the person who specced my car went for Xenons. I didn't like that, but the price for the car was good, and there were loads of other options too! After the self-levelling gave up, I realised how right I was to not like xenons. Now, my thoughts are reaffirmed! The headlamp washer covers are...
