  1. Fuelling issue

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So I've got an issue with my 147 from cold. It hunts at idle when cold, throws a motor control failure below 2.5k RPM but cures itself above that. Runs like a spanner below 2.5k (no power and surging like ****) but above that it pulls as it should. When it's hot it'll drive perfect, have had...
  2. Fuelling

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi I have a G 1.4 Multiair 170, purchased new March 2014 with 5000 on the clock. Fuelling compared to other cars i've had is less than perfect, with some flatspots on pick up. The engine revs rise when the clutch is engaged. Is this common with these cars, or is it a fault on mine? Would...
  3. Over fuelling - Strong smell of petrol

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I tried starting the car on wednesday following a 5 minute stop after a previous 20 minute car journey (So engine was warm) and I just got the Engine Management light, turning over but no ignition. Usually its related to the yellow key light which I never get round to fixing (antenna) but this...

  5. Brera V6 fuelling problem - with a difference

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Since I bought my new / old Brera, I've never had a problem filling her up with the good stuff but come the recent sub 4 degrees weather, I struggle to get more than 40 litres in the 70 litre tank:mad: I know older Brera's had an alround fuelling issue sorted by a tank swap but given the usual...
  6. Emissions / fuelling issues.

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider

  7. Fuelling problems

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Here's one for the track guys out there. When you are running low amounts of fuel and you turn left and the fuel sloshes over to the right, the fuel pump sucks air and you lose power. With out changing the tank, to a race one or putting more fuel in, how can you eliminate this? All advice...

  9. Brera fuelling issue

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello everyone. I picked my Brera 3.2 SV last Friday and (so far) the only issue I have is that I can only get three quarters of a tank of fuel in - about £45 worth. No matter what I do, it just won't go in but the guage says it's only 3/4 full. Has anyone else had that problem?
  10. 166 3.0 fuelling (?) problem

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Wonder if anyone can shed some light on this - there appear to be 2 possibly related problems. My car is a 2000 model 3.0 Sportronic with 120000km. 1. On a light throttle (ie not under load) cruising at about 3500rpm in top gear (D in auto mode) there is a distinct stutter or hiccup - sometimes...
  11. Spark Strength and Fuelling ???

    General Alfa Discussion
    Got a question for those "in the know" If you have a weak spark, would you need a stronger fuel mixture to help the engine run properly ??? I'm awaiting my new leads and coils (those on the car are split etc etc), but I've noticed that when the engine is above 75ºC, the car surges on part...
