Spoken to several QF owners who have free servicing on their cars.
Newer cars get that as standard, but I'm puzzled how cars from H1 2017 got free servicing as well? Has anyone here?
...especially when the cost of servicing is more than double what was quoted when I bought the car.
Have a recurring DPF fault on my 2.4 159.
Had a forced regen done, done about 100 miles since and again it's gone into limp mode.
On my code reader (budget eBay one) the P2002 code is present (DPF) but also wasn't sure about the EGR% at idle and when the revs are increased.
Hello Alfa friends,
So here i am again with another problem.
This one is really frightening.
Above the link with the audio file.
At around 10 seconds you can hear the sound at it's best.
It sounds a bit like metallic rattling / rrrwhh.
Like a valve is opening and then...
Hi all just changed front breaks as break warning light kept flashing but ended up pads were fine but had a severed O/S pad sensor cable and missing plastic connection point (which i guess was flapping and making a connection somewhere triggering the warning light)... I changed the pads to...
Gave my Alfa Brera a good wash at the weekend and noticed some paintwork "bubbling" on the rear bumper - anyone else come across this?
Have read some posts but people mention the lacquer and I am unsure if it is this or the paintwork? Would be interested if anyone else has come across...
Hi chaps, hope your doing great on this wonderful day
my 1.9 jtd sometimes suddenly completly cuts-out while driving
- engine ecu light comes on "motormanagement failure"
- this does not happen frequent and mostly while accelerating with "cold-ish" engine
I included some multiecu...
A little background for those who aren't aware.
I've had an annoying rattle coming from the top of my dashboard, and I assumed it was coming from the top vent/speaker surround, as when you pushed down on this surround the rattle stopped.
So, last month my car went into the local dealership to...
Front RHS suspension has started creaking when making slow left hand turns. Only does it after the car's warmed up. Maybe it does it at higher speed but I can't hear it. I'm guessing a worn upper wishbone bush? The LHS was replaced recently so I guess the other one is probably on its...
On Tuesday this week my Phase 2 GTV started making two odd sounds....all in one day.
First one is a high pitch whine from the engine, it seems to do it more on the move. Sometimes at idle as this video shows, any ideas? YouTube
Other noise is a major clunk coming from the drivers...
Hi, I know lots has been written on this but after chatting to my Alfa specialist I wanted to put this question out there. I have a 2002 1.8 ts sportwagon Lusso bought with debica fiero 205/55 R16 and my man at the garage told me there was no point getting premium a brand - recommended kumho as...
just changed expansion tank and its running hotter than it normally would, No leaks no coolant loss all connections are good all sensors are plugged in correctly
it would normally go to 90 or so and stay there, after coolant tank replacement it lives at this mark, the Air is now as warm as it...
Haven't been on these forums in a long time, but thought it was time to show you what I've been up to with my 147. I'm currently on my 2nd Alfa (both were 147s). I've been slowly upgrading the car, but hopefully in a classy way (as if it came out of the showroom that way). So far I've...
This is related to another thread (Selespeed hesitation and dead) but thought I'd ask if anyone can diagnose selespeed issues based on code details - prize for simple do this, change this, replace this or ignore this succinct guidance.
Failed Component Code: Switch Lever 2
My beloved 2006 156 Ti (2L JTS Engine) seems to have developed a rough idle, when both hot an cold.
It seems to be a metallicy noise alongside the usual light and buttery notes that the engine should produce. I'm taking a wild guess at this being the alternator bearings failing.
My Alfa Romeo 147 making weird noise? - YouTube
Hi, I have a 147 2.0 ts I just purchased.
The car is making weird noise and this worries me.
It most likely sounds like it's coming from the rear wheel and does not do this when stationary.
Only does when it moves and I was driving about...
Long story short Have had the GT for half a year now, was having problems with no power sometimes, temp fix was the Alfa mechanics put a "plate" to block something so other valves or something wouldn't get stuck closed??? Not entirely sure but what ever they did worked for the last 4000km until...
