  1. Intermittent windscreen washer motor

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My 159 SW washer motor had a bizarre problem When I pull the stalk towards me I get a small squirt (1/4 second motor sound), then nothing if I hold the stalk in. If I release it and try again a couple of seconds later I get another small squirt. Eventually I have enough water to mostly clear...
  2. Intermittent wipers

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi All, My 2001 spider 2.0 ts seems to have a problem with it's wipers. They work fine on all the speeds but on intermittent it seems whatever setting I select on the wiper stalk the interval remains the same. Is this likely to be a problem with the stalk or the control module? Anyone else had...
  3. Intermittent suspension/steering woes

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Towards the end of last year my 2008 Brera S (2.2 c.110k miles at the time) had a slight squeaking noise from the suspension and the steering felt disconcertingly loose around the straight ahead. Lower suspension arms were replaced which stopped all noise and the steering felt better. Upper...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I replaced my timing belt, turned over and ran fine. When putting my foot down hard there is intermittent juddering, no warning lights. Any suggestions if you have experienced the same would be grateful, thanks.
  5. 156 jtdm - AC intermittent work (after repair shop)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi got several unpleasant surprises after taking my 156 to the repairmen, for a turbocharger change. so far the main change of the turbocharger seems ok but I know have a faulty AC. Before going back to them, I'd like to check a couple of things. Before the turbo operation -which has nothing to...
  6. 159 TBi - Intermittent Turbo/Power Dip

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, My 159 Ti TBI has developed an infrequent and intermittent 'dip' in power, when getting up to speed (usually in 4th gear between 2.5k - 3.5k rpm but has happened once in 6th, too). The turbo appears to drop boost. The car doesn't lose speed, but won't accelerate. Sadly, I don't have an...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Morning all, I've been having some issues with my ABS warning and Handbrake warning light coming on in recent weeks. The car is a 2000 V6 Phase II (CF3) Spider. The lights are not always on, I start the car in the morning and can drive normally for a number of hours and they remain off...
  8. Intermittent Misfire - High Revs

    Alfa GTA
    I've been experiencing an intermittent misfire of sorts for the past few months now, but as the car has only just come back from its winter break I want to get it sorted. It only ever happens at high revs, just as I'm about to change gear at full chat between 1st-2nd or 2nd-3rd. It feels like...

    Hi Guys, I have a problem with my drivers side front door speakers, there is no sound at low volume, on and off at mid volume and almost consistent at full volume.

  11. Body Computer Intermittent connection lost ?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    As some may recall I'm still on a journey fixing my 2.2 JTS Selespeed from 6 months ago. Since the car has not been major commuter it's been sitting in garage untouched most time for past 3 months. Maybe it's time for another Alfa but I still want to find out and fix it so I can handover a...
  12. Intermittent loss of drive

    Alfa Giulietta
    My warranty is coming to an end soon, and I have lived with an issue since buying my G this time last year. Just wondering if I should get it looked at before the end of warranty or if it's just a thing. When sitting around 2k revs, usually in 6th on a motorway, i experience a very quick and...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All, I have a problem whereby when reversing there seems to be no power steering at all, when driving normally it seems to work most of the time. Took the cap off the power steering reservoir and the level is ok, although doesn't seem to be pumped through as there is no fluid movement when...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi All I've started having an intermittent stalling issue with my 2.0 jtdm. It only seems to happen at very low speeds such as when approaching a speed bump or junction, when dropping the clutch in first gear usually. It has happened when the engine is hot or cold, restarts immediately when...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    About a month ago I bought my first Alfa, a 2008 159 2.4 sportswagon, and I am loving it. I've often thought about getting an Alfa and finally took the plunge! I've just joined the forum in the hope you can help as in the last couple of days I have noticed some warning lights appearing on the...
  16. 2.0 JTDM Intermittent Exhaust Vibration + smokiness

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all. I have a re-occurring fault on my 2010 2.0 159 JTDM that is worrying the hell out of me. When hot, I can hear a vibration on the exhaust accompanied by a strong smell of oil and, if I stop and rev the engine, it's a bit smoky. The fault can disappear as suddenly as it started. I was...
  17. Wiper intermittent setting resistances.

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Does anyone know the resistor values for the wiper intermittant period/rain sensor sensitivity on the column stalk? I've had a look through the 166 eLearn but they don't seem to record the values :( This will be the resistance values between connector D pins 3 and 10 ( according to eLearn )...

    Good Day lady’s and gents, I’m having an issue with my 156 Sometimes I’ll start the car and it’ll drive fine power is good no problems Other times it’ll start fine but won’t build any power at all, as if there’s no boost from the turbo, or won’t build any boost until around 3,500 rpm. The...
  19. 120 16v JTDm intermittent power loss

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    This relates to an engine in a Bravo. Someone I know has this issue. It produces black smoke at the same time. A code read revealed P0101, P0111 & P0237. These are intermittent signal issues for MAF, inlet air temperature and boost pressure. Any ideas? Is there something obvious which has...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I have the following problem in my 159 2.0JTDm ti (December 2009) which I own for about a month. When I select the intermediate function of the wipers, I only get one wipe and then nothing. No matter which level is selected. If I select another lever in the intermediate setting then again I get...
