    Hi all Long shot I know but don’t suppose anyone has one of these lying about? Coolant seems to be slowly leaking out the bottom of mine so I think it may be cracked and can’t get a new one til Wednesday at the earliest Thanks in advance Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I've been losing a small amount of cooling fluid recently. About a cupful per month. No obvious leak signs. So today I got serious and got the under bonnet area really warm and then a 10 minute hot soak. When I opened the bonnet I heard a slight hiss from the Coolant Header tank and managed to...

    So I'm replacing the Header Rail along with the soft top. Sadly the original fittings to the frame cannot be reused. Has anyone been able to source these - they are unavailable at the regular suppliers such as ClassicAlfa. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Hello Everyone! Recently I purchased a 159 sportwagon, to change up my tired 156 jts. Sadly, there isn't a usb port in the glovebox. My question is, if I get a blue and me ecu and a USB header, can I just plug it all in to the default CD player? Sadly it's not the mp3 player one, just the basic...

    Just to let everyone know .... EB Spares have just taken a small delivery of header tanks for the GTV V6. They are expecting another larger consignment towards the end of February. the tanks are new but supplied without the cap which they can supply additionally if required. I've just got my...

    I purchased a 147 1.6 t spark on a 02 plate. All was going well, until I noticed I needed coolant. I put in the recommended coolant and again all was going well. 1 week later, I checked the coolant in the header tank and it appears to be oil now. It was still running fine and no overheating and...

    Hello, only a short question. As the catalytic converter on my Alfa 2.0 JTS seems to be damaged, I am thinking about retrofitting an header of an old twin spark engine with one main cat below the car. motor faults because of the post cat lambdas shouldn't be a problem which cant be solved. But...

    Noticed a tiny amount of coolant under the header tank today but couldn't feel any dampness anywhere, however on closer inspection there appears to be a few small fractures in the plastic to the top of the tank? Anyone suffered this?
  12. Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Hi all, noticed the other day that there was a hissing coming from the header/coolant tank filler. Surely it's supposed to be sealed, the engine wasn't that hot. The 'lid' is a metal gold coloured lid with fiat written on it. Is this the right one? The car doesn't heat up that well unless sat in...

  17. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all As mentioned in a previous post the air filter bracket was loose on my new buy and has worn an alarming groove in the hose that links the bottom of the resevoir/header tank to what I think is the thermostat (note to self - must buy a manual from somewhere..). I looked on EB spares but...
