I'm getting bubbles in my coolant this week, the sure sign of a head gasket failure. I found a receipt for head welding in my document folder, and then there is the graunched cam bearing because a PO fitted the cam caps in the wrong places. I was looking for a replacement 1750 head, and then I...

Having issues with my rear wiper. Long story, the motor seized up and the wiper has been stuck at 2 O’clock for over a year (I should have got this fixed ages ago I know). When turning on the ignition I could always hear the motor under strain trying to return to the home position so power...
I spotted this beautiful-looking GTV V6 on eBay - fresh import from Japan. It seems like great value for a 50k mile car in red with mostly the 'right' spec. Does anyone here have experience owning and running an imported GTV?
As far as I can tell they're mechanically identical...

Yep - in a moment of madness I have bought myself a 2004 Alfa GT and even though I was wary of the potential problems of Alfa ownership I was warned about - I still bought it and love it!
Already used this site to find out and fix the airbag warning light which was on - so easy...
my beloved old 2002 147 is still zooming along nicely, just the occasional gremlin here and there to keep things interesting. This one is starting to annoy me a bit though, not seeing many others having a similar issue so looking for any help you may have.

My 07 blackline has developed a fault today that means the 'drivers door open' warning comes on the dash and the drivers window wont close fully but goes down when the door is opened - not back up as it should.
I got the car home and sprayed WD40 in the latch as advised here now...

So, my QV is being built next week (have I mentioned yet that I'm getting a QV..........:wink_org:) and the original plan was to sell the JTDM when it arrives.
However, having just bought a new house in the 'burbs my wife will now need her own car to get to work. So, does she stick with a...
Will be collecting a 1.8ti 146 tomorrow, to go alongside the GT derv. If it's as good as it seems I'll be very happy. The test drive was immense, the condition is amazing, lots of recent work done by an alfa nut.

an interesting problem has developed on my way in to work this morning... as it was raining I had the wipers on (having recently replaced the blades) and everything was fine for almost the entire journey until the drivers side wiper decided to reach full extension and then just keep...
....5 months ago my pride and joy of getting a 3.2 GT at top price with full main dealer service history and using it for a pitiful 6 months turned :cry::cry::cry: into a major disaster...it threw a conrod..yep major big bang :confused: something that throws your senses into...
Hi everyone, after being away from Alfas for 6 years (you dont want to know what I have driven!) I think it is now time to come back. I have had both a 147 GTA and a GT. Loved them both. So now I am deciding what to do next?
I loved my 147GTA and regret selling it, only the Integrale I owned...
I thought I'd take some advice from Ian Lusso and start a thread about my car.
I have a 1964 Giulia Sprint GT which I will be driving, overland, across Africa, The Middle East, Europe and The British Isles next year. The trip is called The Dargle to Dargle Expedition. The website...
