hesitation

  1. Searching for fuel hesitation

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I have been looking on here to solve a problem. When driving at low revs my car sometimes feels like it is searching for fuel. This would typically be when maybe coasting around a roundabout. If I accelerate it disappears. I was thinking maybe a dirty fuel filter (put injector cleaner in which...
  2. Hesitation when Accelerating - Giulietta QV

    Alfa Giulietta
    Morning all, My 2011 Giulietta QV seems to 'hesitate' under acceleration. The problem occurs in Dynamic Mode, and seems to be most noticeable between around 2500 and 3500 rpm. I'm not accelerating heavily, so I don't think it would be the traction control cutting in. I've also noticed that, if...
  3. Hesitation issues and parking brake getting stuck

    Alfa Giulia
    Had my Giulia Speciale diesel 18 months now and for many months noticed there is hesitation issue in that the car doesn't move straight away when at a roundabout for example. Once was at roundabout put my foot on accelerator and nothing happened! I now don't go on a roundabout if theres a gap...
  4. 2.2jts rough idle and slight hesitation when cold

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I need advice. My 2.2jts sometimes when I try to start it when the engine is still cold has a rough idle(like it changes to everything between 2000-800, it goes up and down and up and down...) plus sometimes it does not want to start for the first try only for the second. When the car does this...

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    My 1993 Alfa 33 has developed a most annoying fault that manifests differently as follows;- 1. Starting very well but later the engine experiences a momentary hesitation 2. Some times you get a series of these momentary hesitations leading to jerking, which disappear either when you ease off...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Need some help! For a few weeks my 147 2.0l has been running like a dog - doesn't matter if engine hot or cold, getting lots of hesitation through the rev range and a rough idle (occasionally it also sticks at 1500rpm when I'm decelerating). A couple of weeks ago, engine light came on and I...

  11. Big hesitation problem on WOT

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Today my 2.0 TS GTV seems to have developed a problem :( When I accelerate on wide open throttle the engine massively hesitates and bogs down. It gets so bad that the revs wont actually climb any more. If I ease off the throttle a bit, to around 80% the car revs freely again. In fact if I...

    Hi everyone. Can somebody help me with my little Alfa 156 1.8 TS. I love the car to bits, but she is having a problem at the moment. When the Engine is warm there is a lot of hesitation at about 1800rpm. This has got steadily worse. The engine management light started flickering for the first...
  13. Brera 2.2 JTS SV - poor throttle response & occasional hesitation.

    Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    Hi all. I've just bought one of these and find that the throttle response is quite poor. For example, when pulling away in 1st from a standstill, it's difficult to bring the revs up gradually - nothing seems to happen at first, an then there is a step-change from idle, to @ 1500 rpm, or...

    Okay, I recently won a Prodrive exhaust for the Brera S on eBay and had it fitted this morning. My car is a MY 2008 car with only 20K on the clock. The car before had noticeable hesitation in 1st gear and a flat spot around 2000 rpm in 2nd, i;d pretty much got to the point where every time I...

    Hi guys my JTS has starting giving realy bad hesitation when started from stone cold, ie left over night, not left for a few hours seems to be ok. It does clear after the car has warmed up, but is most apparent under 2000rpm and when the coolant temperature is less then 50. I have disconnected...
  17. Hesitation at 2,000-2,500rpm on GT 1.9JTD

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all. Hoping you experts out there can advise - my 2005 GT 1.9JTD has suddenly started running hesitantly at 2-2,500rpm. Above and below these revs it runs fine, but as I drive on the motorway every day of the week in 6th gear in or around that range, it's giving me cause for concern as it...
  18. PH2 2.0 Hesitation

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have a 99 ph2 2.0 and it has the hunting idle issue, need to remove the ICV but that is not the issue here. On light throttle it is jumping about, jerking etc. If you increase the throttle or come off completly it doesn't do it?! Anyone got any ideas? Dan
