  1. Spilling petrol when filling up

    Alfa Giulia
    With my two recent fill ups at different locations the fuel nozzle has failed to shut off when petrol is surging out and spilling out down the side of the car and all over the forecourt floor. I'm used to having to use less trigger pressure a bit to avoid the pump shut off, but these last two...

  3. Any Tips on Filling a GTV?

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I got my 1750 GTV out today and gave it a good run for the first time in a while. It's off to the specialist for a few jobs this week, including a tune, so I thought I'd put some fresh super unleaded in it so I know there is plenty of fuel for it all to get properly set up. The nozzle really...

    Hi guys This is my first post and it is a problem solving one, sorry. My better half owns a 2006 147 JTDm 6 speed that she just loves.

  7. Filling up!

    Alfa Giulietta
    Today i went to the pump and instead of asking for 70 euro as usual, I asked the attendant to fill up the tank expecting the pump to stop automatically. It clicked at 73.50 and the attendant proceeded to fill till 75 to round it off. However, diesel started flowing out from under the car and he...

  10. 147 Problems with Filling Up,

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All, i've had a problem for a few years with filling up unleaded. At nearly all service stations, i can't get more than about 5 litres in it, without the nozzle clicking off. I did find one that i had no problems with, and so i have stuck with it. But i received some bad fuel, so now i am...
  11. Removing the petrol filling hole thingy

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Any idea how to remove the petrol filling hole ring from a 33? The pipes are all out, but I can't figure out how the plastic ring is fixed in place... I'd rather get it out without breaking it :)
  12. DPF total filling

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Is it possible to see this with Multiecuscan? I am a pro chiptuner and normally I work with VW and Audis and in these cars I can see the "ash-amount" where 60g is maximum and the filter has to be replaced. I got an Alfa 159 1.9JTD 150 for myself and I am not sure when the filter is done. BTW...
  13. Fuel needle drops like a stone after filling up...

    Alfa Giulietta
    I just wondered if anyone's 1.4MA experiences some dodgy petrol readings. I have just brimmed my G to full for the 2nd time since buying it (56 liters in total). The needle was at the max mark as I left the petrol station. 15 miles later and the needle has dropped to 7/8th of the way lol. The...
  14. 6 speed gearbox oil filling

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have done a few searches and as I thought, the 6 speed gearbox of the 1.9jtdm is the same as the V6 where you refill via the dipstick. Is this correct ? Also, I looked for information on exactly where it is but couldn't find any. I am assuming it's like on my old V6 155 and the dipstick is...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey, I've finally completed my overhaul of the suspension, and have drained the gearbox dry. I've been looking for an easy way to fill the box, alot of people say to use a bit of pipe and a funnel into the dipstick hole. Do I need quite thin pipe or will a bit of hosepipe on a funnel do...

  20. Filling Cooling System

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    The old waterpump on my 1750 spider had a vent on the top (small bolt) which you took out to let the air out when you filled the cooling system. I would unscrew it, pour in coolant until it came out the vent, screw it in, then fill to the top and bleed any remaining air through the valve on...
