  1. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi All Having poured too much into the 159SW am well past the sunk cost fallacy situation and now need a replacement power steering hose, the rubber-metal-rubber one from pump to rack as it is worse than weeping from under the reservoir. Not too many of these left on (or off) the road now I...
  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello, I have a problem with cylinder 2 giving a misfire warning and then going away I changed coils and sparkplugs with cylinder 1 and it keeps giving a misfire in cylinder 2 it's weird because she runs good but when you go past 2500 rpm you have a chance on the car going into limp mode but...
  3. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi, I have the Twinspark manuals but can't for the Ph 3 JTS update anywhere - all the links I've found here are years old and not working any more. I know there's a manual update called "Model year 2003 (60468417) Update" but the only downloads fo that my PC warns me not to click due to virus...
  4. Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    Hi all, i have a 1.8ts which is currently running a standard jts inlet cam which has a 10.6mm lift. It works really well, but I am looking at upgrades. Does anybody know the duration or any of the other technical details of my existing cam? The only numbers I can find are 235 and a 4A Thanks
  5. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all, Has anyone remapped this engine (2000 JTS) from Squadra Tuning? Thanks!
  6. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi guys, Reaching out to all JTS owners regarding a strange loud ticking noise coming from the engine only on first start. The noise can be herd for about 2-3 mins then it slows in intensity/frequency and eventually completely dies down after 4-5 mins. My mechanic has no clue as to what this...
  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi I've just swapped my ignition coils after noticing a missfire during idle (but with no engine light). So I started the car up and seconds later the engine light showed up (the car still missfired) i read the codes and all the cylinders were missfiring. The spark plugs were changed about a...
  8. General Alfa Classifieds Section
    Very good example. Lovely car, goes and sounds great. Selling for practical reasons. I've had a couple of years of enjoyment from the car and now it's someone else's turn :) This is the 260bhp, 4wd version. 77, 000 miles. Just passed MoT first time with only warning being front tyres, but...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey guys, So my car developed a sports exhaust by the flex pipes. The rubber hangers disintegrated (known from MOT) and the flex pipe worn out. I known about this issue when I bought the car (for cheaper) so I am not too upset, but I am moving this month so I am short on funds, if it needs to...
  10. 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...
  11. 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...
  12. Alfa 159, Brera & 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...
  13. Alfa 159, Brera & 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...
  14. Alfa 159, Brera & 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...
  15. 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...
  16. Introduce Yourself
    Hi all. Just bought my first alfa, always wanted one. Think it's great but now Reading the threads I haven't got the best whip. Help me change mind that not wasted my money. ?
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    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...
  18. Alfa 159, Brera & 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...

    Has anybody fitted this one? https://www.totallyalfa.com/shop/clutch-gearbox-drive-shafts/alfa-romeo-twinspark-sports-shifter-adaptor-kit/
  20. Alfa 159, Brera & 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...
