  1. Cant find placement for small bolt / screw in engine area

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi I was hoping to get some help on an issue I am currently struggling with. I was changing the timing chain on my 2010 MiTo, which went well. I am now in the process of putting it all back together. I ran into an issue, because I found a small torn screw and I have no idea where it is from...

    Hello everyone! I was thinking about removing rear muffler from my exhaust system and doing a straight pipe instead of it. I would like to leave in place cats and everything else, just removing rear muffler, because i lowered car for about 4cm, and muffler is now really low and i dont like the...
  3. JTD inlet manifold replacement HELP!!!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I had a look at doing the job today but I'm a bit windy about the HP fuel pump and pipework that has to come off. Can someone please my fears either on here or by phone. I need to do it tomorrow as I will not have the facilities from Friday and I worry that it I won't get it done in one day...

    Hello, just wondering if there are any practical options or even ‘not too impractical’ as I want this quite badly. Probably end up on a 57 plate 147 Q2. Thanks ?
  5. alfa 147 jtd acceleration problems

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi I am having some issues with my 147 purchased about a month ago. All of a sudden while driving the revs drop to idle and I cant do anything about it. I leave it for 10 minutes and its fine again. Searched the threads in here but couldn't find anything. Happened 4 times so far completely...
  6. 156 2.4 jtd 20v fmic upgrade

    Tuning & Upgrades
    Hi! If anyone has plans on upgrading an intercooler to 156 20v mjet I seriously recommend to think twice.. especially if you want to keep your fog lights and head light washers(if xenon). When I started the project I really didn't know what Im involving to. But I know there are some other...
  7. 2007 147 JTD fault code - P0237 Tubro boost sensor “a” circuit low

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, I've got a 2007 147 JTDm that I've had for a little over 6 months. The car has always been difficult to start but never had any engine fault lights come on. Go figure I finally sell the car and the same night I sell it the buyer says the engine light came on. Sure enough it did. Took...
  8. 147 JTD 88kW or 110kW to replace 2002 85kW?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Looking to replace my old 2002 147 with the Euro 3 85kW JTD engine. The car's insurance has ran out and it runs fine, other than the fact that the consumption is a bit high. Mostly looking to replace it for the sake of getting a newer model with more equipment, and a more powerful engine. Was...
  9. 2007 147 with a 100 kW JTD engine? What?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    There's one up for sale that says it has the 100 kw engine in it. Says so in the papers. However when I run the VIN decoder it shows the same engine number but says its 110 kw. I don't get it.
  10. Selling my GT 1.9 JTD cloverleaf, but needs work

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I'm looking for sell my Alfa GT 1.9 JTD cloverleaf with 120k on the clock, but it needs some work. Im after £1500, which when I have looked around it's a real bargain. Needs new wishbones and driveshafts, with some small bodywork needed too :( but saying this, the rest of it you...
  11. GT JTD Clutch

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey all. I was wondering if the clutch kits from shop4parts for the GT JTD are interchangeable. In other words, can I drop the 170HP clutch into the 150HP engine (for future... upgrades...)? The assumption is, of course, that the 170HP unit can handle more torque. The two in question are...
  12. 156 1.9 JTD auxiliary belt keeps snapping!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    A couple of months ago, my auxiliary belt snapped. No further damage done. Had the belt changed and thought that was the end of it. Wrong! Less than 2k later, the second and new belt snapped, therefore further investigation was warranted. There were no signs of movement or play or any damage...
  13. 156 JTD Nearside CV Gator (Outer)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Evening all, I've searched the forum for a guide on how to do this but no write ups on the 1.9 JTD. Outer CV gator on the nearside has a split. I've been meaning to tackle this for ages, but finally got round to it. I need to remove the drive shaft to remove the existing outer boot - there are...
  14. Weird fuel supply problem. '06 159 2L jtd

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    The tank is 3/4 full, but after driving for an hour, the gas gauge needle started dropping to zero, and there was a corresponding loss of power. I pulled off, looked around, found nothing, got back on the road, and drove for ten minutes before the symptom returned. The gauge jumped back and...
  15. The importance of JTD coolant pump (every 60K)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The pictures shown were actually from a Vauxhall CDTI which is GM's version of the JTD. On this occasion, the engine started making a strange noise from the timing belt area. It was switched off promptly and not run until investigated. Look closely at the coolant pump (above the tensioner)...
  16. 1.9 16V JTD Temperature Sender.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I’m still not completely convinced by the cooling on my 156 Sportwagon 1.9 16V JTD. If I let the engine just idle and build up temperature the gauge inside the car goes up past 90 and 110, and I chicken out before the fans switch on. Yet driving the car around it appears to behave quite well...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, Thanks for any help offered folks. So.... I did a service on my beloved Alfa a fortnight ago, including oi, oil filter and air filter, and everything went fine (the fuel filter was changed two years ago, about 15,000 miles, just to give some more info if needed). Then a week ago i had a...
  18. 2.4 JTD intake air temperature sensor

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have a 156 2.4 150hp. Car has a fault code which suggests the intake air temperature sensor would be broken. Is there a sensor for it or is it built in to the maf? I have a new sensor but can't find it anywhere in the car and also can't find any information about it.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Apologies if this is not placed in the right area of the forum, gauging interest as I've run out of time, would anyone be interested in a project? late 2005 GT needs repair - cambelt snapped last July (on the hottest day after sitting in the sun all day). It's been a great car for the last 5...

    Introduce Yourself
    Hi all, from the South Coast of the UK. I'm in a village called Clanfield, just North of Portsmouth in Hampshire. Joined the forum a few days ago when I picked up a 1995 156 Sportwagon Veloce 1.9 16V JTD. I've brought it as something to tinker with, different to my Landrover and old Ducati...
