So I had a peak under the bonnet today and noticed that the coolant level is low (below min) in the 'upper' reservoir. Which I believe is for the engine whereas the lower one is the Intercooler.
My understanding is that Petronas Paraflu UP is the recommended top-up. However they don't sell it...
Guys what's the normal ratio of anti freeze in a 1.9 JTD please ,I ve got to change thermostat so I'm gonna lose some and was wondering what the correct amount should be in total, I'm thinking I need to add about a litre to make up off what I lose.
So I went to use my existing tester that I used to use on previous cars and found it wasn't deep enough. Anyone know where I can get one that reaches far enough to draw some coolant for testing. I have a 159 TI.
When I've left the Brera to sit for a few days, I sometimes have to break the pads free from the discs before I can drive off. It's just a matter of rocking, then moving slowly forward an inch until they free themselves. I think it's just the back brakes.
Is this normal, or something to worry...
I don't think that the 2 are related but, I though I better check.
When I got home tonight, my wife told me that while driving down a hill today the car slowed down all of the sudden as if someone pulled the handbrake half way, once she tried to accelerate nothing happened and it felt like...
Done a search on this but found nothing, I have a v6 and all of a sudden I have no hot air, it blows cold and the aircon is fine, just not a good time to not let me have heat:mad:
Any ideas will be appreciated... Thanks in advance:)
I have a Alfa GT 3.2 V6 and during my checks, have noticed that I need to top up the water.
The handbook says that I need to used, specifically, Paraflu UP FL Selenia.
My question is, do I need to use the specific anti freeze or can I use any off the shelf product?
Thanks for any...

This happens all the time, the window wipers freeze at their highest point for anything up to 15 secs, if I switch the wipers to a faster speed it sorts the problem, but is annoying to say the least.
Anything I can do?
Just recently bought a 1.6 Alfa 147 (had one previously) and find it under power.
Looked under the bonnet today and found that the coolant has turned to sludge/cream, looks light brown/pink.
Any ideas what the problem is?
Also the engine is very noisy, like a diesel. It had a cambelt and...
hello - just changed out my anti freeze, but have a bit of a problem. Just added 3 litres of anti freeze and just short of 4 litres of water,(7ish litres) but the handbook says I should be putting 9.6 litres in. Any ideas? Filling tank is almost full, and although I can see bubbling on start up...
Ten-year freeze on engines !!

My biggest concern is whether the other teams will be able to catch up with the leaders of the pack. I might be over reacting but if one team have a problem with reliability, race pace...
