    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello all. I am new on here and this is my very first post. I have been searching for silicone hoses for my Alfa Romeo 159 ti 2.4 and had little success other than AutoLusso where I could get a (black) turbo boost pipe and that is all. I would really like to know if anyone has had any success...
  2. New rubber radiator hoses?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Whilst I'm delving around in the engine bay I will replace the radiator hoses. I don't particularly want to pay £160 for silicon ones even if they do last forever - the current ones have been good for 17 years so far, so some new ones will be good for the rest of the life of the car! I'm...

    Was wondering if anyone had replaced the air filter to throttle body hose assembly with a straight through pipe and put a separate mini filter on the small breather pipe that branches from the rear hose section?

    Hi guys, I've had a leak from my power steering system for a couple of weeks ,I've now got round to getting it into the garage to get it looked at, the garage reckons the front pipe has been chafing on the steering cable and it's worn through, therefore leaking fluid quite badly, they are saying...
  8. What air intake hoses Cayenne throttle body?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Gary is making me up a flared adapter for my Cayenne throttle body. Anyone else have one fitted? If so what did you do with intake hoses? If I can would like to try and keep resonator box and flexi’s with breather pipe to look fairly standard. Seems preferable unless someone has a carbon...
  9. Oil on turbo and thermostat hoses

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I discovered that the hose(from turbine to intercooler) is greasy.I cleaned that hose but after short time it is greasy again. I'm sure it's not an engine oil, because this is reddish and clear. In this picture I marked where I find leaking. Under this pump find oil on thermostat hoses. Very...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Where do you guys get coolant hoses for your 147 TS? Mine's a CF3 2.0. I'm primarily interested in the hoses that go to the thermostat as I'm going to be fitting a new one and want to be prepared in case any of those hoses need replacing. I also want to know where to get the hoses that run to...
  12. 156 2.5V6 rad hoses by Roose Racing

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Probably generic with Roose stickers on them, however these are a very nice silicon hose, double lined internally with fiber for strength, a nice tight fit, and came with all stainless clamps. Postage to the back end of the world was by FedEx, and was very quick, faster than getting items in...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My hoses to the jets for windscreen washer have had it. Finally the other day it just broke off! I have the new replacement hoses. Has anyone done this? Do I need to remove the bonnett insulation to get at it? If so is removing the insulation basically a 'break the clips' operation? I...
  15. How hard should the 159 radiator hoses get?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, After a recent overheating due to a cracked coolant hose behind the engine, I find my rad hoses get relatively hard... I can squeeze them a little bit. Both get warm... Machine is a 159 2.4 JTDM 200hp. I'm curious how hard these hoses should get, as my mechanic does not acutally...
  16. Fuel smell and all those hoses

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Big smell of petrol in my boot. There are two pipes coming out of the petrol filler pipe to the fuel tank. One has a valve in it, the other is just a rubber hose. But both just hang down and are tucked into the well in the side of the boot space. The question is, should these two hoses be...
  17. Power loss, no low down torque. Hoses checked

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Suffering from power loss. The car just doesnt get and go from a stoplight. It climbs in revs quickly but doesnt accelerate as it has. I cant even hear the turbo, even though it whistled a lot half a year ago and was pretty loud. Maf? Clogged cat? Something else? No error codes, or engine...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    hello! I'm not really a forum kind of mechanic but I recently acquired an Alfa 156 2001 2.4 JTD 10V. Now I'm in the process of refreshing the overall of the car. I'm unfamiliar with this engine yet, or diesel engines in general. I'm really curious what the purpose of these two hoses is if...
