  1. Worn lobe both cams! 2.0 JTS

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    While digging into what was causing an extreme tappet noise starting from around 1500rpm, I removed the rocker cover and found that both cams had a very worn (3-5mm lost) lobe on cylinder 1 for the intake and cylinder 2 for the exhaust. So classic cheese cams on the JTS. The car seems to have...
  2. GTV / Spider 916 Phase 3 JTS Air Intake Hose replacement- Flexeo

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I put a prior thread on concerning the JTS air intake flexi hose OEM part 55183921. These are like hens teeth to find. However I stumbled across these at Flexeo in France and bought one...
  3. Brera 2.2 JTS unsteady idle

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, Was driving to work today and I noticed that my Brera was not returning to idle RPM(900 usually) like usual but would hover around 2000 - 1500 RPM and then return slowly to 900 RPM. No check engine is showing up. I am yet to find my OBD scanner so not sure if anything has been recorded...
  4. Spider JTS electric roof advice

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hope it's okay to post this here, as there doesn't seem to be an appropriate heading for this model in the technical advice forum. I'm thinking of buying a 2008 JTS Spider (the 1997 916 finally needs to find an owner that has the skills to look after it better!) from a reputable dealer, but the...
  5. Brera / 159 3.2 V6 JTS - Wizard decat manifolds

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi everyone. After years of delays we are now considering building a pair of decat exhaust manifolds for the Brera/Spider and 159 3.2 V6. Is there anyone on here who would still be interested? We had lots of interest in these in 2016 & 2017 but not so much recently, so I thought I would ask...
  6. GT JTS squeaking/chirping on cold start

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So I decided to try and ask here, as me with my mechanic are out of clues on this one. The problem actually shown itself last winter, but not as pronounced as this year. With the temps going down overnight, first cold start after the car sat in the cold, this horrible squeaking happens. It is...

    Dear all I'm putting the 156 jts up for sale pending passing its MOT tomorrow. If it does, I'll be putting it on various places at the weekend for 800 with a view to getting 750 for it. It's not perfect but it's in generally good nick. Since March 2019 its had Timing belt, tensioner belt and...
  9. 2.2 JTS remap recommendations in SW

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I am looking to get my 2.2 JTS remapped. Does anyone have any recommendations in the SW....south Wales, Glos., Monmouth, Hereford areas? I am happy to travel...up to a point. Autodelta and Alfatune are a bit too far. Alternatively, has anyone got any positive/negatives reviews on either a...

  11. 159 2.2 JTS flickering lights - Alternator/Regulator?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello everybody. My 2.2 JTS 159 has developed a problem, where most of the time all lights flicker rhythmically irrespective of the load on the system - faster at low RPM and slower at higher RPM. When there is a load on the electrical system at idle like the radiator fan turning on, the...
  12. Gt jts gear lever position

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Since having my car the gear lever has always been biased to the left. The gear shaft plastic bush was replaced which stopped it from being floppy and for good measure, I had new gear selector cables and new gear selector plate fitted. This made the gear lever nice and solid with a positive...
  13. Considering a 159 SW 2.2 JTS

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Having not had an Alfa for a while i'm considering a 159 SW 2.2 JTS manual but there don't seem to be many of the sold from new so I'm wondering if there is a reason why I should avoid? Maybe its just that it wasn't a popular choice... I've seen 3 for sale recently, quite high mileage (over...
  14. Jts drive shaft stuck

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    The drive shaft is stuck in the hub on my jts. The securing nut will not budge. Tried heat, tried breaker bar and it just wont budge. Need to fit new cv boot but stuck. Any ideas? Is the drive shaft and hub unique to jts or are they compatible with other alfa models? Any ideas much appreciated...
  15. Strange engine noise 156 JTS

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    When ticking over the engine makes a strange noise like someone trying to play a recorder. If I remove the dip stick or oil filler car the noise stops. It must be related to crankcase pressure. It's not coming from the PCV valve. Any ideas???

  17. Alfa 159 3.2 JTS fwd Ti Chip/piggyback tuning box

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, does anyone know firstly if a plug and play tuning chip box can be used on the 159 2012 3.2 JTS? I only see remaps available but no piggyback tuning options. Is there any particular reason for this? Companies like racechip etc only have pedal boxes. If there are and piggyback options...
  18. GT JTS exhaust mods and emissions

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The exhaust on my gt has seen better days, particullary the middle silencer after the flexi. I've spoken with a buddy having the same motor, and he said something about the silencer being "catalyzed". That seemed weird to me, as the maniverter, I think, consists of all the emission regulating...
  19. Alfa 159 3.2 JTS Ti manual fwd Remote Turbo Kit setup

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, out of interest, has anyone looking into turbo charging their 159 JTS (3.2 more specifically) in a remote setup configuration? I've been doing a lot of reading recently regarding remote turbo setups and because of the exhaust header positions of the 159 v6, a remote setup would be much...
