Hi guys, new to the group with a recently purchased 159. Always loved the look of them.
Looking to change the cambelt on my 1.9 JTDM 16v engine, is there any how to guides to speed up the process?
Any info will be gratefully received.
Many thanks in advance.
Does anyone have experience of the cheap timing tool kits available on Ebay? I only expect to need one to work for one belt change. The crank and cam locking tools appear basic enough for their cheapness not to be a worry and I expect I can check everything with the timing marks on the engine...
My C4 GT's turbo has always been a bit vocal when cold, but it has become noticeably worse recently and a slight hesitation under acceleration has crept in. At 160,000 miles, I reckon it's on its way out.
It looks like I can get a reconditioned unit on exchange for around £200 and the...
Poked around the engine and noticed allot of shiny buildup around the throttle body and the air duct leading to the turbocharger. (Took some pictures).
When I dismantled the air duct leading to the turbo I noticed some oily buildup around the pipe, never been like this before when...
My 159 has been working lovely up until about 2 weeks ago where I noticed it started idling rough when it had warmed up, this disappears under load and doesn't happen when the engine first starts cold. A couple of days ago I lost some turbo pressure going up a hill and the car started...

I own currently Alfa Romeo Gt 1.9 which has been a nice car. However I have have been thinking of buying Brera 2.4.
You can remap Gt to 190hp and Brera to 250hp. Gt can do 0-100 in ~7 seconds but what about Brera?
Brera is more powerful but is...
We are currently searching for a new car, something that will be big enough for a baby on the way.
I am landing on the Giulietta, but there are a couple reservations with the size.
How have any of you folks gotten on with rear facing car seats and the boot size for prams/pushchairs...
For sale! My lovely 159 ti. I’ve always wanted to own an Alfa and this helped me scratch that itch but it has also given me the bug so likely it won’t be the last!
It’s time to go as I’ve recently moved jobs and my commute isn’t worthy of a diesel (or a car at all!) at less than a mile. I’ll be...
I'm a relatively new Alfa owner, and absolutely love the car.
However I have some issues with it, that I'm trying to figure out.
One of the problems that I'm having is that it sometimes won't hit boost in 2nd gear.
The boost gauge shows pressure as normal, but the car runs like a...
Evening everyone, I'm having an issue with the P010f Error Code causing limp mode, with the maf unplugged the car runs fine apart from the eml light on and no dna modes, it seems to only go into limp mode when there is no throttle input and the engine is slowing, I have installed a new bosch maf...
A belated happy new year to everyone!
I have had my Giulietta 2.0 jtdm 170 for 6 months now, and am looking at putting an intake and a tune on it in March for some extra oomph and even more bags of torque :p
However, just wondering those of you who have done the same, which of these...
Was wondering what the best routes would be to maximise my MPG? I have looked at remaps and they seem to offer 10-15% increase. But at only 35-37 mpg tops on this car, the remap doesnt seem to be really worth the while or money. I realise things like tyre pressure and average speed may increase...
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...
At around 180 km/h I get a high pitched sound from the right side of my car (Alfa 147). I get the impression it comes from the wheels. This pretty much exists since I owned the car. I had a bad wheel bearing at my back right tire with a continuous sound increasing in pitch, which is fixed now...
Hello to all, i'm new on forum and couldn't find any exact situation like mine. So i had a problem with my AlfaRomeo 159 2.0 170hp when i was accelerating the car was like twitching when i go above 2000rpm and it was happening sometimes more sometimes less. I went to mechanic and we took all 4...
Newcomer to this forum, I'm doing some research on the 2018/9 Giulietta with the view to buying one soonish.
Any long-term concerns or reliability issues with the 1.6 JTDM engine?
Thanks for any advice!
If this is not the right place to post this then please let me know as this is all new to me. But UK only, i am selling my modified 1.6 JTDM on AutoTrader. It's very clean as i am sure all you will appreciate but please pass on as I want a true alfa peep to look after it.... I am...
