  1. Low tyre pressure warning

    Alfa Giulia
    This just popped up on the dash. I toggled to My Car and all the four tyres show the correct pressure level, but one of the values is yellowed. And the warning won't reset. Is there a way to manually make teh warning disappear?

    Alfa GTA
    I will quietly leave this link here... :( Offers considered.
  3. Low battery power warning?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have had a Low Battery Power warning come up and thinking it was caused by the ill fitting positive clamp, I made a better connection. However after having done so, I had the warning again. As I've fairly recently bought the vehicle, I don't know how old the battery is, so is it possible that...
  4. 2007 147 JTD fault code - P0237 Tubro boost sensor “a” circuit low

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, I've got a 2007 147 JTDm that I've had for a little over 6 months. The car has always been difficult to start but never had any engine fault lights come on. Go figure I finally sell the car and the same night I sell it the buyer says the engine light came on. Sure enough it did. Took...
  5. Low oil, tappet noise (3.2)

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Engine started making a noise, initially it sounded sort of flutter like, (can't think of a better description), so thought it was something flapping about or something underneath. It eventually became more apparent as a tappet like noise. I checked the oil, and it was very low, below the...
  6. Low fuel warning on Giulia Veloce

    Alfa Giulia
    New owner on first full tankful... Warning light came on at 1/4 tank left, showing around 50 miles to empty - this quickly changed to showing no numeric at all, just 3 horizontal dashes. Fuel consumption so far has been poor - low 20's (urban/commuting) and i have been taking it very easy. I am...

  8. Low mileage water pump replacement

    Alfa MiTo
    Hello everyone. I’ve been browsing the forums the last couple of weeks since I was gathering information before getting my Mito. I’m the new happy owner of a single owner 2011 Mito 1.4 155hp with just under 32000km (20k miles). As it has been a low mileage car, some things haven’t been replaced...
  9. Tyre rubbing when turning at low speed

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi all, I have noticed that when I reverse out of my driveway and turn, my Veloce makes a rather obvious tyre rubbing/vibrating feeling which is audible and can be heard/felt within the car. Not even full lock is required for it to act this way. I am turning the car whilst either crawling out...
  10. 2.0 TS Idle Drops Dangerously Low With AC On And Speeds Higher Than 30KPH

    Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    What the title says really. And this only happens with the AC on. If I depress the clutch to come to a stop while the AC is on and at speeds over 30kph the idle drops the nearly zero before settling regularly. The issue doesn't happen with the AC off at all, and if I slow to under 30kph before...
  11. 159: Painful noise when steering at low speeds

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I've been having some problems with front axle parts recently. Front right wishbones have been lubricated with some silicone oil (for bushings) and lithium grease, front right wheel bearing is likely bad since I'm getting humming noise. On top of that, there is some unusual noise when turning at...
  12. 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...
  13. Not the normal tyre thread. Low profiles

    General Motoring Discussion
    Is it me or are very low profile tyres more hassle than they are worth? Sure they look good, but due to the awful state of the roads I find myself stressed whilst driving and often going slower than I should be due to worries about buckling or cracking the wheels. Then there is the ride...
  14. Low mileage V6 on eBay

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Red V6 GTV on eBay caught my eye, did an hpi check and it came up as an insurance write off. [emoji55] Has anyone experience of buying insurance write off cars? Pros & cons, please? Thanks. Sent from my Brera using Tapatalk
  15. Low rev rumble - Veloce

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi everyone, I've done about 3000miles in my Veloce - loved every second of it! Had a bit of a strange sound coming from the engine since I picked the car up nearly 2 months ago now. Seems to happen when the engine is on or under 1500rpm. It's like a low rumble which eventually goes away after...
  16. Low battery charge warning fix

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi everyone. I'm a newbie member here but have used this site to guide me through the many repairs in my Alfa GT 1.9 JTD so thought I'd try and return the favour. One of the problems I've had that i haven't been able to find a solution to was the "Low battery charge" warning constantly beeping...
  17. Alfa low throttle jerks

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, i have noticed that my Alfa 147 1.9 JTDm jerks when i'm pressing the pedal gently, maybe 20-30%. I have a diagnostic tool so i have been driving around with it and monitoring various parameters. Everything seems fine except for the fuel pressure. Sometimes when i accelerate and release...
  18. Low oil pressure warning

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Got a 'low oil pressure warning' out of the blue today so have ordered a new oil pressure sensor. Oil level is perfect and no leaks anywhere.
  19. Alfa GT JDTm Low RPM Manoeuvring Judder

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, Brand new Alfa owner here. Love my new car, it's a great drive! Only issue at the moment is when manoeuvring the car using the clutch only generates a massive amount of shuddering through the car. A couple garages thought it was the clutch assembly, but having being prompted by the...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi and many thanks to all who contribute to the forum. Having been a 'lurker' on here for a while and gained many useful insights as how to solve the many problems I have had with my various Alfas over the years, I am stumped with a problem on my Brera. I purchased the car blind on ebay and was...
