  1. Who else has got the Stelvio fuel level recall letter?

    Alfa Stelvio
    Got mine Friday morning. Ref: Alfa Romeo Recal/update 8242. Incorrect Fuel Level Reading on Instrument Panel. Quite surprised, as it says they are worried (it is a safety issue apparently) that the car could report more fuel than is actually in the tank. In the last 8k miles, I'd say mine is...

  4. Twin Air Oil Level?

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi all, newbie here. My wife has a MiTo twin air. Has anyone idea of how to check the oil? The dipstick is, well, oil coloured and I can't make any marks. Are the marks the bottom of the thin bit for 'min' and the top of the thin bit for max? Also, what is the volume between the two points...
  5. Engine oil level reading confusion?

    Alfa Giulia
    DIY oil-change on my Giulia 2,2 150. The new clean oil makes it hard to "read" the dip-stick. Picture 1, taken at start without starting the engine, means (according to handbook) "Insufficient engine oil level". Picture 2 means "Oil level at max" (I have done the engine oil level update a few...
  6. Oil level indicator vanished?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I ALWAYS had the oil level bars shown on the display after inserting the key, Last week it displayed the fact I had no oil and zero bars!!? In a blind panic, I checked my oil level only to find it was fine? Since that day, my faithful display has vanished, disappeared, gone - Why has the display...
  7. Xenon level sensor...

    Alfa GTA
    Took the old girl out today but noticed when I started her up, that the headlights didn’t do the up, down, centre movement they should do. Had a look under the hood where the back of the headlight and balasts are and I could hear a motor trying to work. Any ideas whats going on?
  8. Engine oil level

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My dash display shows one bar for the engine oil level, but the dipstick shows that it's within normal range. The car is a 2.2 S Brera or a hrs, not entirely sure which. [emoji849] Do I just top up anyway? I've read somewhere that excess levels of oil can be detrimental to the engine...
  9. Coolant level

    Alfa Giulietta
    Is it normal for the coolant level to be on the min. line before a journey and then once stopped and inspected after driving to be back on the max. level? I've checked mine the last couple of days and this is happening. I drive for an hour to work, leave the car for 7-8hrs and then drive home...

  12. Oil Level Warning Light......

    Alfa Giulia
    ......please bear with me while I set the scene. My Giulia has Run-flats so it doesn't come shipped with a Tyre Repair Kit. However, I thought I would like the extra security of a repair kit so I ordered one from Piccadilly Alfa in Knaresborough. I went to collect the kit on Wednesday and on...

  15. Minimum level of gear oil? 159 2.4 F40 box

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    So just replaced DMF, clutch and CSC, got the car all back together.... Filled the box with 3 bottles of redline 75W85, only to lose a fair amount out of the driveshaft (which wasn't correctly seated - arghhhhhhhhhh). I've drained the box and measured the oil - I've got 2300ml so I'm down half...
  16. Mid Level Audio Sound Theatre

    Alfa Giulia
    I am considering an order for a new Veloce. Has anyone had the "Mid Level Audio Sound Theatre" added as an option? Is it worth it, or is the standard audio good enough (my 159 has the BOSE set up).
  17. Dash oil level warning 2.2jts

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, recently been getting the warning that my oil level is low, changing from half full to empty. The dipstick level is fine, so I'm presuming it's a sensor thing. Question is, can the sensor/connector be accessed easily enough to give it a bit of a clean up? Not too worried more a pain in the...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    the other day the car did a regen on my way home from work, so i went for an extended drive to allow it to finish. On getting home I plugged in MES and it showed that the dpf was still 22% clogged is this just a build up of ash that regenning cant get rid of?
  19. Oil level differences.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Since I bought my car in January I've been aware that the oil level was a bit too high (about half an inch over the max (top of the hatched are on dipstick) and of course the sloping blocks that pop up on the dash which you put the key in have always been to the top and saying full. Today I...
  20. Engine oil level... again

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello everyone. Sorry for starting a new thread, just thought it'd be better than necroposting. I am really concerned about engine (2.2 JTS) oil level since the dipstick and dashboard meter confuse me A LOT pretty much every time I check my oil level. I had my last oil change about 6k...
