  1. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I am planning to have the Brake fluid (React Performance DOT 4) and Power Steering fluid (GI/R - synthetic Green fluid) on my 2007 2.2 JTS. Does anyone know the actual capacity of both? There is no info in the Owners manual, various oil websites etc. Some suggestions include each is less than...

    Hi, So I replaced my clutch and DMF on my 147 1.9jtdm a few weeks ago. All has been good and the car is running superb! However I noticed that the power steering fluid had dropped a little over 500 miles. Back at work this week and I have noticed a small rainbow under the car! The PS fluid...

    Hi there, new owner of a mito 155bhp 2009 having had it for just over a year. Got a steering wheel warning message the other day. Have checked here and have seen it may need a column replacement but wanted to check steering fluid levels if possible before taking it in. Can someone please...

    Hi All.. I have a very small oil leak (1/2 teaspoon) on top of my bell housing. Just below the transmission casing. It looks and smells like brake fluid and collects in a little pool as you can see. About 1/2 teaspoon. However, I have no idea where it is coming from. There is a little 5mm hole...

    Thought I would share my power steering story as it may help others on here and I know there has been a load of posts on this before. When I bought my 159 JTDM 8 months ago, I would get the power steering noise on full lock. Didn't take too much notice as previous cars had been noisy on other...
  7. Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi there 166 crew. Great news! My 166 very nearly passed its MOT yesterday!!! I think this is the closest it has got to a straight pass in the ten years I've owned it. :cool: Some finicky eurocrat reckons that the brake fluid level sensor needs to work :rolleyes: and since my local garage...
  8. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    So I've just bought a Brera V6 and have read a lot about the steering racks and power steering fluid etc No, mine has no faults at all with the steering however it does have the red power steering fluid instead of green, which I believe it should. To prevent any problems, is it a case of just...

    clutch bleed on 156 disaster. Looks like too much air not pumping fluid through Quote: Originally Posted by ttelracs1 View Post I had a similar problem when I first bought my '01 jtd.

    Has anyone else noticed a warning for low break fluid level when doing a hard left hand turn in a 159 before. Got one for the first time this morning. Lasted for about 2 seconds and then went away. Break pedal feels the same as always.
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi I'm new to the site and looking for a bit of help from people who know way more than me. I have a 2007 2.0L 4cyl 147 Selespeed. She's been functioning and driving normally up until Friday morning. The selespeed fluid has 'leaked' onto the ground underneath the passenger front wheel, leaving...
  13. Alfa MiTo
    I had my brake fluid changed in November 2013 on my 1.6 JTDM. I've just had a service and MOT where the recommendation of changing it again due to low boiling point was included. Is this reasonable?
  14. Alfa GTA
    As per title really I've definatly got a leak but where/what are the likely causes. I haven't been able to get underneath to check it out. I would like to go to the garage with some clue. Thanks in advance.
  15. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    It appears I have a brake fluid leak. I when I got here and started using the Spider I noticed that the brake fluid level was low so I topped it up. However over the course of a week the level has fallen from its maximum level by about 3 mm or so. I packed some kitchen roll underneath the...

    Hi All, Just went to top up my power steering fluid and bought some GI/R (green) but checked the sticker on the underside of the bonnet which said GI/A. So I thought I'd check whats actually in the reservoir and it came out yellow. :paranoid: Which reading a few threads no one has had in...

    My daughters 2010 Ford KA suffers from smelly screen fluid. I've syphoned it out a few times refilled with fresh water and screen wash but a few weeks later it smells like pond water and stinks the car out when she washes the screen. Anyone else had this problem and can you suggest a remedy...

  19. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    So the soft top has started to lift a bit slow and sounds like there is some air in the system. I believe they are self bleeding so I believe it may be low on fluid as there are no visible leaks. What type of fluid should I be putting in? I've found the tank hidden away in the back. Undid...
  20. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I bought a 1997 TS Spider a few weeks ago with service history that only stretched as far as 2007. I've done few jobs: cam belt, balance belt, variator, water pump, new radiator and front down pipe which together have got the car into a good, usable condition. This week I bought a £5 brake /...
