  2. Gas pedal sticks and releases close to floor

    Alfa Giulia
    2018 ti sport. The tab on the back of the pedal catches on the base and then releases for a bit more travel. Not sure if it is supposed to be a stop that has broken or if it is supposed to continue traveling and it is now misaligned. Any idea how it is supposed to work? Anyone have pics or...
  3. Tail gate gas struts

    Alfa Giulietta
    My car has been off the road for 11 days due to a gear linkage failure. Fitted the new part tonight and went to the shops. When I tried to open the boot it's like both gas struts have lost their charge! Could this be due to the recent hot weather, checked the bonnet (hood for our north American...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I recently replaced the 2 lots of gas struts in the Spider roof mechanism from replacements from SGS, and that now works much better.

  7. Boot gas struts on 156

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    G'day all. One of the boot struts on my 1999 Alfa 156 has broken. Looking for a replacement, almost every seller makes a distinction between boots with and without a spoiler. The indicated original part numbers in various sites are: 60651067 without spoiler 60657685 with spoiler My car has...
  8. Gas struts for boot with spoiler

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I'm trying to source any recommendations dedicated struts for my boot as I'm sick of getting bashed in the head everyone I go to get something out my boot. I've tried a standard new set but they don't support the weight of the spoiler. Has anyone dealt with this previously.
  9. 156 gas pedal and temperature gauge problem

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    2001 2.5 q system 156 When I start the car I get 1 gas pedal press that is normal, after that it becomes very laggy and barely responds. I have to turn the car off and on again to get 1 more proper press. The red bulb in my temperature gauge flickers for no reason despite temperature being...
  10. What should the Exhaust Gas Temperature be? 2.4 20v jtdm

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all Just been playing with multi-ecu-scan on my 159, and interested in the feedback on the sensors we are bestowed with on modern diesels, but it means jack if there's not any reference for comparison. So does anyone know what typical exhaust gas temperature readings should usually be, read...
  11. Small knocking when I press the gas pedal (16V 2.0)

    Alfa 155
    Hey all. I just got the car yesterday from my mechanic, a full rebuild of the engine and I'm in the period of braking it in, so nothing above 3000rpm and I'm driving it as a daily in the city, so I try not to keep constant RPMs, like I read online. Now because I had a crankshaft failure before...

  13. Unresponsive gas pedal - 1.9 16v

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello. Lately i've been dealing with a weird issue.I'm not sure if it's normal or nto, hence why I'm asking. Basically, the first few cm's of travel on the accelerator don't do anything, which makes it extremely uncomfortable in city situation. Once I've stepped on it a bit more, there isn't an...

    Hi, during the last couple of days, I have noticed that my 159 2.2 JTS '06 has a strange noise coming from the front of the car (engine, transmission?) only when pressing the gas pedal. It's a bit difficult to describe how it sounds but it's somehow like metallic high pitch noise. It seems to...

  17. Spider S4 gas pedal - cable throttle

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    My S4 with the throttle 'rod' has the normal accelerator pedal that you replace in one piece with the metal, by removing the 2 screws/nuts. Quite dear at about 40 quid! On the S4 with the cable throttle (that goes over the engine) the pedal rubber is a separate piece (at least according to the...
