  1. A strange noise when engine running at about 1.5-1.9k rpm. 1.9 jtdm automatic

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, I have experienced a strange noise. It only appears when engine is running at about 1500-1900 rpm and even then its not always there, comes and goes. It kinda fades in and fades out. When this noise is annoying me, i step on the gas, car downshifts, rpm goes higher and the noise is gone...
  2. Air con - odd "grinding" noise

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere, but another item on the snag list of my new 159tbi sportwagon. When the air con is engaged, there is an odd hollow grinding noise that changes in pitch as the engine revs. It isn't present when the air con is switched off, so I'm worried the...
  3. 2018 Giulietta Sports 1.4 Gear grinding MT

    Alfa Giulietta
    3 months old. Manual Transmission. 1. Jerk while clutch engagement : N->1, 1->2. 2. Gear grinding 3->4, 5->6. Shifting is not smooth. E.g. when I shift from 5->6, the gear comes back to 5 before reaching 6 from N line. Sensitive to clutch pressure. If it's pressed even 99%, gear wouldn't...
  4. A/C grinding noise solution

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Some history of the problem that I had: When I bought the car I was not impressed by the A/C, it’s not that cold compared to my previous cars. I thought this was due to the fact it was low on pressure. Therefore I went to an A/C refill station and they saw that the system was still full. To be...
  5. Grinding noise with aircon compressor engaged on a 1750 tbi

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi All, Has anyone else experianced an occasional grinding noise coming from the aircon compressor. It sounds just like someone taking a grinder to metal. When heard it usually only lasts for under a minute. It blows perfectly cold air, so it makes no difference in that respect. Any ideas as...

    Alfa Giulietta
    1.4 MA acceleration relase grinding sound Hi, On my Giulietta 2012, 125kw Multiar, if I'm hard on acceleration between 2000-4000 rpm and release the pedal instantly I'm getting a grinding sound for 1-2 seconds. I would describe it like a sound of a coffee mill. I'm experiencing this for 3...
  7. Mito grinding to reverse

    Alfa MiTo
    I have a 2011 1.4 Mito Sprint. It has started to grind into reverse sometimes badly. Gear changes into all other gears are fine. Although 1st can be hard to get into, but does not grind. Any idea? A new clutch?

Drove away normally and put it into n mode then changed back to dynamic. Since then there?s a horrible grinding...
  12. Possible clutch issue, need advice :)

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi All, I have a grinding noise coming from my clutch wherever I put the clutch down, it seems to happen around the bite point. It happens when I'm in neutral and put the clutch down and also happens when I'm in first gear on the bite. (Doesn't happen with the engine off!) It sounds like...
  13. 156 1.8 TS 2nd gear crunch

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, The gearbox of my lovely 156 1.8 TS (no selespeed) is starting to make a crunching sound when shifting into 2nd gear when everything is cold. After driving for (only) 3-5 minutes or so the noise disappears. It looks to me like the cones under the synchro rings can't break the oil film...
  14. Front wheel grinding when turning

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So the front drivers side wheel has developed a grinding/rubbing noise only when I turn (mainly right, but also when I turn left). When driving straight, I can't hear or feel nothing at all. What should I be checking to find out what the problem is? Thanks in advance!

  16. Grinding noise on bends !

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I'm hoping someone can give me a suggestion to what's causing an annoying issue with my GTV ! Basically on sweeping left hand bends I get a rubbing / grinding sound from offside rear wheel. I thought initially it was the worn suspension but I've had that all changed. Along with new rear...
  17. Grinding Noise From Clutch at 3K RPM?

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I'm running a 166 2.0 TS 6-speed manual (~35k miles on the clock). Engine running very well, (just fully serviced including cambelt). One issue remaining - there appears to be a grinding, rumbling noise coming from the front underside when I'm in gear and the engine reaches 3K RPM. The sound...
  18. Horrible grinding/rumbling and vibration under acceleration

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    This is a solution thread (happily) that I hope might help someone in the future with similar symptoms. I recently replaced the gearbox on my 2.0TS and at the same time changed the old gearbox mount for a brand new one. Once all put back together again there was a horrible grinding noise...
  19. Grinding noise at 60mph

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi, I've got a strange problem on my QV mito that I noticed at the weekend. When I hit 60mph, either accelerating or slowing down I get this horrendous grinding sound. It's exactly 60mph. Doesn't matter what gear I'm in or if I'm touching the pedals or not. If I hold my speed at 60 the noise...

    Alfa Giulietta
    Bought a new Giulietta a few weeks ago but it started making this horendous grinding/crunching noise when the car is started (not just when ignition is on but when you actually turn the engine over). Problem is I can't find anything online regarding similar issue's and it only happens 1 out of...
