  1. Loud Heater Tap Noise at High Revs

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I've posted before on this but was totally in the dark over the origin of the noise, as was everyone else. I tried plenty of things, to no avail, but I think I might now have the answer and as such, wondered if anyone else had encountered this problem. On my phase 1 GTV I have located a shrill...

  3. Why would a 95 Chevy Cavalier with a 2.2 engine make a very loud tapping sound?

    General Alfa Discussion

I also have a 95 Cavalier with a 2.2, and the car has made a disturbingly loud tapping since I...
  4. Loud clonk on full(ish) lock.

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi guys, The wife's Giulietta has developed a loud clonk on lock, it's only appeared recently and only when the car is cold. It's a manual not the TCT. I was in the car with her yesterday and experienced it for the first time myself. She was reversing with almost full right hand lock. It was a...
  5. MiTo QV Making a loud whine sound when reversing onto my driveway

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi everyone, I have been reading a few things on here about some people experiencing similar things. My beloved QV has started making a horrible whine when reversing onto the drive, its really loud! Sounds like Chewbacca in pain, probably the best way to describe the sound. My drive does have a...

  7. How loud is your clutch?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, two months into my new Giulietta Sport (2018) and I'm wondering if the noise made by the clutch is normal for a new car. Coming from a 2005 Astra 230.000 Km (143.000 miles) and it's original clutch still in place, I got used to it's noisy slow end-of-life destruction... In my 1.4 MA...
  8. 147 JTD very loud exhaust

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    On long trips at an average speed of 55-80mph, I'm not entirely happy with my exhaust noise levels. The sound I feel comes from behind my head (as the driver). Any passengers on the rear seat do complain a bit about a very intrusive exhaust noise. Even when simply starting the car I can...
  9. Loud clicking noise

    Alfa Giulietta
    I have a weird issue with my 2010 GQV which is driving me crazy! When I'm turning or coasting, there is a very loud clicking noise comming from the front right corner of the car. When accelerating, the noise goes away. I just recently changed the outer cv joint, which seemed to fix the issue...
  10. 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...
  11. 156 2.0TS Loud Engine Ticking Noise

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My (now quite old >150k miles) 156 2.0 TS has started making a loud ticking noise coming from the main engine. It is not on start up but typically after a longer journey - although today it happened after just a 10 mile run around. Initially I thought it was the cam belt which I have had...

  13. loud squeeking noise?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My 147 has started making a loud, quite high pitched squeeking noise after about 20 mins of driving, it seems attached to the steering as it seems to only make this noise when driving straight or slightly right. As far as i can tell from driving with the window open, it seems to be coming from...

  16. How loud is your aircon?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    As above, How loud is your aircon? I have a 156 V6 and the actual blowing fan noise is perhaps what I would consider too loud for a car such as the 156. Am I being pedantic or is this a common thing? It seems to be functioning fine however. Kind regards
  17. Loud noise on start up

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I was wondering if any of you out there may have experienced the same issue that I had a few weeks back. I tried to start my 1.9 jtdm in the usual way but was met with a loud rough noise coming from the engine. The car failed to start and after about 4 seconds I thought it wise to pull out the...
  18. Loud beeps when I insert the key...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, not sure if I should put this in the ICE thread or if it's specific to the Brera. I'm new on the forum and only had my car for a week so please forgive me if I'm being a total retard. When I insert my key the radio momentarily mutes and it throws out a weird but really loud series of...
  19. Loud Knocking noise!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've had my 156 for a couple of months now and am having the cambelt replaced in a couple of weeks. For a few weeks there has been an almost tappety noise but its getting louder almost like an air cooled beetle running noise. I did think it could be the variator but after reading on here it...
