    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Did some investigation today with AlfaOBD. If I disconnect the sensor I get water temperature reading stable 120C. If I shortcut the sensor connector it shows -20C. I connected the sensor and started cold engine. I had not used the car for two days. Outside air temp 17C, Cabin air temp 17C...
  3. Hot Day - Air Con Just Stops!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi All I drove about 20 yards today with the aircon blasting cold air over me. Then it just stopped, the fans stopped. The controls panel was on but did nothing. Switched on and off everything but nothing! Has this happened to you and what was the fault? Cheers James
  4. 916 heater constantly blowing hot.

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have a '99 lusso 2.0 TS with the auto climate control that only blows hot air. I have used the Multiscan software and detected that the sensor in the wing mirror had failed through corrosion. I have changed the sensor and now the Multiscan indicates the correct temperature and no errors. It...
  5. DNA getting really hot

    Alfa Giulia
    I'm wondering if anyone else noticed their DNA switch is getting really hot to the touch. Seems weird to me since I can't imagine there is much going on in there to cause heat.

  9. 2.4 JTDm Hard coolant hose, no hot air

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello everyone, I'm kind of in panic mode as no local Alfa experts really know what is the problem my Brera is having. I want to find a solution (closure in worst case scenario). A month ago my engine suddenly hit maximum temp according to the gauge and as a result my head gasket got cracked...

  13. Hot boot

    Alfa Giulia
    Anyone else notice how hot the inside of the boot gets after a decent length run? I guess it's because of the exhausts tucked away under there, but things are noticeably warm to the touch when I get them out after about an hours drive. Wouldn't want to have a load of frozen food in there and...

  18. How hot does your 2.5 V6 get?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've just started using a 2001 156 V6 as a daily. The stat seems to work fine, gets up to temperature quickly and in normal driving sits at the 9 on 90- where I expect from my history of driving a 156 1.8. When sat in traffic (in warmer weather) it creeps up to well over 90, we're not talking...
