  1. 166 Fuel Filler Flap Release Switch

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi The fuel filler flap release button on my 166 has decided to play silly bugger. The last few times I went to fill up it had to be “wiggled” a bit to release the flap and yesterday, outright refused to comply, so I had to tug the string in the boot. Has anyone fixed/tweaked the switch on...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, My '01 156 V6 has started to smell like a petrol station, and at it's MOT last week I asked the guys at the garage to have a look at tracking down the cause of the smell for me. The car doesn't leak fuel and MPG is no worse than normal. They traced the issue to the filler neck that...
  6. Fuel filler flap

    Alfa Giulia
    I know others have mentioned this as an issue but my fuel filler cap has warped out of shape and I was going to mention it to the dealer when I book in for the first annual service due September, giving them time to source a replacement before I take it in. However, while washing the car this...
  7. 1750 TBI - Milky Oil Filler

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, new to the Giulietta and looking to purchase (a good black manual TBI is hard to find). I have seen a few but the nicest has a very milky filler cap and oil was changed only 230 miles ago. The coolant is spotless. Is this common on this engine or is it “walk away” time?
