  1. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    My 159 V6 has just developed the squeakiest of squeaks from, I’m sure, the front suspension. On and off it will squeak like a bucket of mice for a couple of miles and be quiet, and then start again. Last work in that area was front lower arm bush replacement by AutoLusso six months ago...

    This is short notice - I am not the organizer, just the messenger ARCSA is hosting a Dyna day this Sunday 16 July 11:00 onward at Insane Racing (a.k.a FR&R) in Centurion (yes Dyna is more correct than Dyno as the cars go on a Dynamo-meter :cheese: )

    Hello I have a 159 2.4 - 168k - bought it for spares for the spider - anyhow I have finished up running it. Its ran fine for a month, then the heater went cold, checked the water & it was low. Have been checking for leaks, eventually found one the top pipe at the centre of the engine ...
  4. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I have a 147 JTD 16V from end 2006. Now last saturday, I bought some tweeters to put in the doorhandles of the back doors since it hadn't any. For 10 euros I thought it would be worth the trouble. Haven't used the car since then until today. The problem: Wanted to go for a drive this...
  5. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    So.. my Alfa who is not so great anymore.. towards the hate actually because I cannot figure out what the problem is. Have been hoping that the problem is not buying a new automatic gear box and have changed gear oil; MAPS sensor etc. I am a woman so I dont know the right terms as my father has...
  6. Alfa MiTo
    Hi everyone, I have this most annoying rattle coming from the right hand side area of the windscreen. I have had Alfa techs look at it and they tried to fix it but it is still there and now I am out of warranty and getting worse. The techs say its coming from the plastic team under the...

  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi I have a 1999 156 1.8 TS and it proved to be a real gas guzzler, it spends about 15 - 16 litters for every 100 kilometers(city). I tried all the usual stuff to fix it(new MAF,spark plugs,replacing bad thermostat, alignment...), but I didn't get an results.I've had one consistent issue that...

  12. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider

    Hi guys, i can see the time is approaching for me to change the tyres on my car, so i went on the net to have quick look at prices and :wow: expensivo! :rant: My size is 225-50-17, if someone has a lot to do with tyres or just know more than me of the tyre world could i possibly get some prices...
  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Yeah I probably am, but I have a question either way. When I got my 156 I put in fuel and the needle sat just below half. This was on Wednesday last week. I haven't been travelling a lot - tops 60 miles since then and sometimes the needle will be just above 1/4 full and then the warning light...
  16. Alfa MiTo
    Mine has annoying squeak coming from the dash and I have located it to the round air vents in the centre if I push it it stops not something I can do whilst driving. I had the squeaky clutch and dealer replaced it after annoying several months, got creaking passenger seat, if I fold it forward...
  17. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi everyone, I bought a 159 2.2 JTS about a month ago and it has been standing at the dealers for ten days in total. The problem is a "creaking" from under the dashboard. It mostly happens when the car is driving at low speeds. It does not coincide with bumps in the road. More so on pull offs...

I had like under 1 litres left and filled it back up like it was supposed to, then i checked like a week later and it had already used 1 litre :wow: Can anybody pls tell me how that is possible, i've got a test done so will come back with...

    Hey all, if anyone is looking for some 100% prime British meat, i have just put my 5l Chimaera for sale in the classifieds. His name is Wilberforce and after 5 years and 20,000 he still scares the living crap out of me ! Rather gutted actually, but my funds have dried up and i'm getting funny...
