  1. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hello, I have a question. I have gotten my 1985 Graduate running great and have been cruising around town. The other day we were at a stop light and all of the sudden a large blueish cloud of smoke started coming out of the muffler. I shut it off and pushed it home. After several days I started...

    A 1985 Graduate with about 60,000 miles. It of course is red and you get wet when it rains. Never put the top up - it's bent anyway. Fun car to drive. Had it about 10 years.
  8. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I have a 1985 Alfa Graduate which was running fine last fall. After being laid up for the winter, it will start - idle (poorly) - and then stall when the accelerator pedal is pushed. The in-line filters have been changed - and my mechanic says there is adequate fuel flow. The spark plug wires...

    Hi, I've just stepped out of my 156 TS and into a 159 JTDm SW. As expected I've got issues already and I'm hoping you stellar forum folks can give me some pointers. Serious knocking noises over bumps, hard to place where from in the cabin but I'm pretty sure it's the front upper wishbones as...

    I was driving home when "Lil Red" decided she would slow down to idle. After a little while RPM's came up and she ran OK. Then she did it again. Drove home at idle for about six miles. Hasn't run right since. She starts and stops after a second or so. Restart and same results. Replaced Relays...

    Hello, Great to be here. I've 'rescued' a 1988 Graduate from the dust bin...It's been challenging (to say the least) getting this thing running properly, but I love the car and everything 'Alfa.' I feel I've contributed to the Alfa world by keeping at least one more Spider on the road. Oh, and...
