    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello, I've got a leak which looks like it's coming from around the camshaft area of the front bank of my GT's V6. Any ideas what it could be and more importantly, how much it's likely to break my bank? There's no "Mayo" residue build up on the oil filler cap which makes me think (hope) it's...

I have clear taped over the entire length of the roof seals and the rear light clusters and siliconed the hinge brackets -the wetness remains mainly on the carpet around the rim of the wheel arch. My question now...

    Hi All, I noticed earlier this week that the 166 was making strange noises on full lock as Mrs G was turning the car round before heading off to work. Sure enough, I checked the fluid level today and it is very low (only just reaching the bottom of the dipstick). So I guess I have a leak...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, With the hot summer and pollen level at bonkers I decided to finally get my AirCon recharged. I’m normally ok with just the window open but thought after a couple of years with no cold AirCon I’ll get it done. I got it done and it held the cold air for a while. Anyway that lasted not...
