  1. 2.0 TS Idle Drops Dangerously Low With High Electrical Load

    Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    I recently replaced my idle speed actuator (and reset it through diagnostics) to cure my idle hunting issue, but now I have another idle issue! When I've driving around normally, with no lights on, no radio, no AC, when I depress the clutch to come to a stop the idle drops to around 500rpm then...
  2. Retro fitting spring load brake compensator

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    In the absence of later version of brake compensators, I'm considering retro fitting an early spring load brake compensator. I need information with regards to the spring and where it attaches to. I've looked at the GTV manual and the diagram shows the spring going straight into the subframe, is...
  3. 159 2.4 Judder/vibration under load

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Feels very similar to an unbalanced wheel but isn't - its like a slight shift left and right/wobble in the drivetrain/engine Only present under acceleration, disappears when coasting or dipping clutch. Been into garage this morning (not specialist), had it up in the air, no play in wheels...
  4. smokey smokey under load

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello All, my car is a bit smokey when booting it and DPF regens are pretty frequent, every 150-200 miles for example. The DPF is used but recently fitted and fully cleaned out and treated prior to installation. The car is remapped by a good reputable mapper which does not result in smoke on...
  5. Boot Rack max load?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Does anyone know what the maximum load is on an OEM Spider/ GTV boot rack? Had that horrible feeling that the large suitcase we were planning to use on our European road trip would be too heavy fully loaded ???
  6. TS loud tapping noise under load, missfire (?)

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Ever since the oil change (10W60 to HPX as per the Alfaworkshop recommendation), well not immediately but around the time when I drove to petrol station afterwards for some RON98 and fired it up again, all of this started. At idle you can only hear it very faintly if at all (no matter cold or...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider

  9. CF3 TS won't rev, no power under load

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    MY GTv started running badly yesterday afternoon. The idle is fine but it won't rev beyond 5k ish in neutral and has minimal power under load, by which I mean that it won't climb a moderate incline even 1st/2nd gear. No warning lights and multiecuscan doesn't show any errors. The only other...

  14. Dipstick being pushed out under load

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I assumed I hadn't quite pushed the dipstick back in yesterday and therefore had oil pump out all over the engine after an 11 mile drive. Reckon I topped up with 1litre and cleaned all oil off from under the car. Anyway, I've done some normal driving and have a wobble/thriobbing in 3rd gear...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I need to replace my Uniroyal rainsports 2 on the front as they're down to not much tread (interesting journey on the snowy motorway last night to say the least! :paranoid: ) N.b. They are all 215/45 R17 91W, although the rears are not rainsports. Now the owners manual says the...

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi all, I have two distinct but possibly related problems. 82K 3.0 166 Firstly, I get a "general" vibration, not horrific, but enough to be something not quite right, when accelerating hard in first/ second, above 4000 rpm especially (probably higher gears but that starts getting into...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi people, 05 2.0 jts petrol 100k has all of a sudden started pinking under load after been sat in heavy traffic on the commute home, it needs to have the throttle feathered when starting off to fend it away, when cold it's fine, any quick fixes for this, I'm thinking maf maybe anyway of testing it.
