  2. First Alfa after a long line of VWs

    Introduce Yourself
    So I finally bought my first Alfa - a 2011 Giulietta 1.4MA, following a long line of VWs (with a single Ford in there somewhere - because we all have to make mistakes). Have to say that it was hard seeing my Mk5 Golf go, it's been an awesome car, but I'm am head over heels with the Giulietta...
  3. Alfa GT black line 1.9td juddering

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all dose any one have any ideas, my GT is juddering in first and a bit in second gear. It's had a new clutch in 10k miles ago. My mother's honda jazz had the same problem (so after a ten minute disagreement with the chap in the garage telling me I'm wrong and it's nothing to do with the...
  4. Fuel line size

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Can someone please tell me the size of the fuel line that connects to the fuel tank, is it the same size as the line that fits onto the fuel pump, just finished the rear suspension and noticed the fuel line looking a bit sad plus a slight petrol smell near the connection, cheers.
  5. Ragazzon H2 line exhaust

    Alfa Giulietta
    I’d appreciate anyone with experience of the Ragazzon H2 Line sports exhaust for a Giulietta Veloce/QV. How is the sound? Boomy or just deep? And how has the y-joint lasted? There are issues with some aftermarket exhausts for the 4C cracking down the length of the weld in the Y-joint. Has this...
  6. Red Line or line of red paint?

    General Alfa Discussion
    Red Line? GT-R 2.0JTS? Unique car or unique use of little sister's paint set?
  7. Front to rear brake line repair.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Has anyone replaced the brake lines where they corrode just as they disappear under the car behind the front wheel arch. They seem to be larger than the 3/16 , probably 10mm . Does anyone know of a kit that I can use like 2 connection unions and a new bit of pipe .IE : Flaring with an inline...

  9. Straight line rear wobble

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi, After some ideas about what is causing this problem.. When driving in a straight line if you hit say a pothole or bad uneven road surface as the back wheel hits the surface the backend of the car feels like it is trying to come round on you. On dry roads it's not that much of a problem...
  10. TDC centre mark on crankpulley doesn't line up with TDC of cylinder 1

    Alfa MiTo
    I've recently brought a MiTo 1.4 Turbo 2011 and I'm changing the cambelt. I've assumed the piston nearest the cambelt is piston 1. I checked to make sure the mark on the crankcase pulley is TDC where the locking tool is install but piston 1 shows it more towards BDC. Is it common for the...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Good evening, One last hurdle to overcome after resolving my stretched timing chain on the Alfa Brera 3.2 Q4 SV... I have the ABS, VDC, Hill Hold unavailable on the dash. I connected to the body computer and received the following: "UL602 CAN line error, BUS off, Intermittent" I can't...
  12. 2.0 JTDM QV Line vs newer Veloce 1.4 TBI?

    Alfa Giulietta
    My 2015 2.0 JDTM is a few years old now and my finance deal is up Dec 2019, so starting early thoughts about a replacement, either a similar year Quadrifoglio, a Giulia or the newer Giulietta Veloce. A job change means I commute fewer miles now so a petrol engine might still work. Any opinions...

    Alfa Giulietta

  14. 'First Line' rear ARB drop links - warning

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Just a heads up that there is an error with their drop link naming. They should be 'sided' i.e. a left & a right. First Line have twice had left hand Drop links in their RH packaging. You can actually fit a left link to the RHS, however they sit at a weird angle, I did & it popped out the...
  15. Front brake line specs

    Alfa GTA
    Hi All, My GT 3.2 has what I would describe as "Hand made" (Badly) braided brake lines. As a result the turns are too sharp and the the unions are badly corroding. I bought a set of braided hoses from Hel and as many have reported They don't have the correct union on the front pipes. Now I...

  17. Steel brake line

    Alfa GTA
    Ok guys and gals You have got me out of a pickle before and I'm hoping for more valuable advise. I was replacing the front flexi hoses where I encountered the now apparent problem of the old rigid brake line twisting and then snapping. Well near side was straight forward but the problem was...
  18. GTV V6 Fuel Line

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Has anyone on here replaced the fuel lines on a GTV? Mine are leaking underneath the car and need changing. My question is how are the steel sections joined to the blue rubber/pladtic ones. There seems to be a special joining pipe between the sections.Looks like a section of heat shrink tubing...
