  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...

    Hi folks. Just joined as I'm considering buying a yr 2000 or thereabouts Spider. Thought I'd obtain some useful information first. I'm not new to Alfa however, I've had a 145 Cloverleaf and two 156's. Also a few Fiats and Lancias! I need to get another Italian soon as I'm missing the soul...
  3. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all I don't suppose anyone has contact details for/is still in contact with Mark, who used to be on the site as 427scr? I spoke to him a while back about transfer boxes and have just tried to PM him to be told that his username no longer exists. If anyone could perhaps message me and pass...

    "In defence of the Alfa Romeo 4C (which I’d never driven before, until this week): well, it’s a car that Apple will never make, that’s for sure. We should be glad about that, like David Attenborough discovering a new species of slug – it’s only a slug, but that’s something to be glad about isn’t...
  5. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    1.9 jtdm 150HP saloon. When my car gets warm (temp is ~90) when accelerating, it starts jerking / skipping. And I can clearly hear a "skipping" sound as well. Not sure if it's clutch, wheels or shaft or what it is. It doesn't happen when the car is cold I think. My theory is that a component...

    Hi All Alfiess. I have a 1999 Alfa 156. 2.5 with the following problem. When the car engine temp reaches 90 degree mark the engine dies. Tests done - Fuel pressure still there. Idler sensor on fly wheel replaced as all techs told me this. When the car is at 90 then I stray water through the...

  8. Alfa MiTo
    Hey All, I recently purchased my Red 155 MiTo and stupidly made the decision to purchase the car in the rain. As a result of this of course I missed a few glitches with the paintwork, which to be fair was inevitable Anyway... There is one mark (Excluding all the small stone chips) which I...

    If you read my post on the squealing rear brakes on the Giulietta section you'll gather I'm a tad annoyed at Donnellys not sorting this when I had the car in a couple of months back. The chap on the service desk mentioned about rear pad wear when I got the car back and I did say that this would...
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm about to buy a 2005 147 1.6. The seller has a spare instruments panel with the lcd screen that tells you fuel consumptions, average speed and such other things, which the original panel doesn't have. The problem is, when installed, it marks 170000 km, being 70000 the real ones of the car. Is...
  12. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Having had my tspark for around 4 months I have got to known its character in gear say in 3rd it really feels responsive lively at times..however 1st and 2nd feels sluggish. Getting off the line feels slow, Im pretty sure there is nothing wrong with it but just wondering why, is...
  13. Alfa Giulietta
    I passed 50k just yesterday and how did she repay me, by the B&M stopping working for the first time ever, just wouldn't operate the phone (quick disconnect of the battery soon sorted it) As it was a milestone I paid a bit more attention to how she felt to drive and I have to say it's almost...
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi Guys! I bought my very own Alfa Romeo 147, 1.6ts 2005 model, about 6 months ago. On the 6th of december 2012, i changed the oil and oilfilter (0w-40. It can be very cold in Norway). Thats a little under 5 months. When I started the car today, the engine gave a strange sound, but after 10...

  17. Alfa MiTo
    As the name implies, I have had 4 Mito's now. On all of them there has been a mark on the dashboard on the passenger side. I guess it's about 8x5" with rounded edges and it looks as if a sticker has been removed (or a suction device for installation?) or something. Have I been really unlucky or...

  20. Car Detailing
    Anyone have any suggestions what I can use to get rid of quite bad watermarks on the headlining of my Brera. Caused by a leak on the SV roof. Upholstery cleaner doesn't seem to help.
