    What the title says really. And this only happens with the AC on. If I depress the clutch to come to a stop while the AC is on and at speeds over 30kph the idle drops the nearly zero before settling regularly. The issue doesn't happen with the AC off at all, and if I slow to under 30kph before...
  2. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, I changed both sets of headlight bulbs on my Giulietta the other day. I noticed on my way into work today that my passenger side dip light is set lower than the driver side. I'm in the UK and it's a RHD car, so I'd have thought it should be the other way around? Any ideas on how I can...
  3. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Just wondering what sort of things I can expect to encounter with higher mileage (currently 134,000 miles) V6 engine? Service history is excellent and there are no problems at the moment. It's a CF2 engine. The reason I am interested is because I plan to go down the supercharger route next year...
  4. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So, good morning! This will be a bit unusual question, but hey. So, as the title says, I am trying to make my 156 SP1 as high as possible. At this point, I am not able to buy completely new shocks, so I was thinking of just swapping springs from something a bit higher or heavier. I know that...
  5. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hello guys, Got MES connected to check for some stored errors (none) and found some strange readings. Air intake qty is twice as desired. I can find few posts with opposite problem, but not that Actual > desired. What is the direction to look at? Car pulls ok, but always felt that it needs to...
  6. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    After having had my 156 V6 written off by a Range Rover a few months back, my insurance is on the verge of paying out. To that end, I am looking to replace my 156 with another one. I have my eye on one but it has higher mileage ( 140,000 miles - although it's average mileage for the year). It...
  7. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi All, having trouble lately with the car shaking at 70mph plus. Its strange as below this speed I don't get it at all, not even under heavy acceleration. I can be going along at 70 or 75 gingerly and it shakes (through the steering wheel you feel it the most prominently) when I accelerate...
  8. South Africa
    My QV generally consumes very little oil but on a trip through Northern Cape at temperatures +40C my car consumed 2 pints. Once back along the coast it did not consume anymore. Clearly the oil must have been burning off at an elevated temperature. I know SA is deemed hot country and many...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Replaced the clutch, pressure plate and bearing recently, car feels much better than before and puts the power down great but I am noticing some slight rpm vibrations in the clutch pedal when shifting at higher rpms, it not a judder or rattle just slight vibrations, it is only noticable when the...
  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, Today I heard a higher pitched beep higher than the normal parking sensor beep when I was reversing. Has anyone else experienced this and does anyone know what it is? I have had my GT for about 9 months, and should mention that only the two outer sensors seem to work. Today I engaged...

  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Recently there's been a higher pitch whine from the engine but I'm not sure what it is. It matches the revs and you can hear it with the clutch disengaged. It's more noticeable when you're off the throttle and the revs are just dropping. The sound is not dissimilar to a transmission in reverse...
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I've recently had a new front anti-roll bar fitted, along with two droplinks. However, I've noticed the front seems to be sitting a lot higher than the back, rather than the same height. Any ideas as to what has caused this? I hope you can help. Thanks Charlie
  14. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi All, My first post after deciding to get back into Alfa's. In my past I have had 146, 147,156, Spider, all relatively new or new,then lost my way and headed to porsche and BMW z4's. Now I'm older and SWMBO says I can buy an older GTV for fun whilst keeping the family wagon. Having looked...
  15. Alfa Giulietta
    Is anyone else experiencing stiff/notchy steering at 70+? It's almost as if the wheels have got caught in tramlines and you have to tug at the wheel to free it. I'm not really worried about it and my G is due its first service shortly, but I thought that I'd find out if this was just my car or...
  16. Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi all, I've read through the forum on this but can't seem to find any help so my first post. I have a series 1 (1989) 3 litre 164 auto that I've had now for over 11 years and after the speedo stopped working recently, I managed to find a replacement in good working order from a wrecker...

    Hello everyone, I have searched the forum, but could not find anything concrete in order to perform the operation. This is my situation: connect NIT + SW 4.07 I want to upgrade to Version 5.00 or higher. Question: Can someone help me do that, I tried a lot in the net, I also found a Version...
  18. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I would like to raise the idle on V6 with electronic throttlebody. Is that possible?
  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Going into reverse this morning, I'm getting a much high (and louder!) pitch beep from the reversing sensor. My gut tells me this means they're not working (although I heard the normal beep too) as they should. A quick flick through the manual and I couldn't see anything, but I was in a rush...
  20. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've got a 2008 GT Blackline, 1.9 JTDM Q2 - remapped in Sep 2008 (in case it matters), and I've been having a problem since Monday evening. On Monday driving home from work I noticed that there was a sound like wooshing air or water when I accelerated. It seemed to be the sounds only, but...
