  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi Guys! For a while now I'm having issues with my 2005 GT going into limp home mode and showing up a P0238 error code. According to AlfaOBD, the turbo boost is around 2700 (at 2553 RPM) and 2900 (at 3220 RPM) mbar when the error rises. This, especially the later (I had the same error last...
  2. Alfa Giulia
    Anyone knows what are the declared and actual maximum speed for each of the Giulia UK engine sizes? :scratchchin:
  3. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have just purchased some jetfins that are badly curbed and seem to have little or no protection from the standard 225/40/18's. After I get them refurbed could the rims take 235/40/18's ?
  4. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Does anyone know what I have to do as the engine coolant temperature goes to the max when I drive does anyone know what the problem is?

  6. Alfa Giulietta
    What is the maximum torque that the giulietta gearbox can handle? Remappers claim 420nM (up from 350) on the jtdm but i'm afraid of damaging the gearbox..
  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My infocentre is telling me that I have below the maximum oil level. I have checked the dip stick but it's so dirty down there that I can barely get an accurate reading. It looks like it's full and I don't want to put too much oil in. I put three more glugs (maybe 250ml) in there earlier but...
  8. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hello I have an Alfa 2.4 JTDM 210 PS it’s been remapped and the DPS Filter removed and the EGR Valve deleted. are there any other ways that I will get more power from this Engine? Did anyone fit a larger Turbo to boost more power? where would you recommend to take ?
  9. Alfa Giulietta
    Does anyone with experience of the various remapping companies here know what improvement in mpg can be achieved if the mapping is targeted purely at fuel economy? (Presumably with the DNA switching you could still have a louder configuration in dynamic mode?)
  10. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all, I need to pick up a wardrobe on Friday which weighs 65kgs (flat packed). I am not with my car or owners manual and won't be until the day. I have searched online but cannot find the max roof load weight anywhere. It has roof bars and I have Thule aero bars fitted (which I know can...
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    GT Lusso 1.9JTD Since buying the car, I've had the "Maximum Oil Level" Indication showing. I was told it would go out once the level had dropped (it has gone out once) but stubbornly shows each start up. Oil is fine - half way up the dipstick indication point, service due in 6,000 miles. Is...
  12. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hello everyone! Stupidly quick question! Whats the maximum (or minimum) ratio i can use with a bottle of Wynns diesel injector cleaner? It says use with 1 tank of fuel, but thats a 'bit vague' I want to give the car a good dose, without running into issues! Any help appreciated!
  13. Tuning & Upgrades
    Hello! I have a 164 V6 Turbo, the idea is to improve the turbine or put a new one, since the original is not a turbine very generous to which you can use with a lot of pressure. But what i am interested to know is how much pressure would bear the standard engine? Leaving pistons and connecting...
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    my alfa romeo 147 of 2003 had a gasket problem and when it was changed it blew up the ignition sensor on the front and after replacement, the car refuses to go over 100km/hr speed. i did a computer diagnosis and it says camshaft sensor is disabled either because wires may have broken or its...
  15. Alfa 164 & 166
    ...on the 166 it seems. So, recently bought a Jeep. About to get it converted to LPG (it goes in Saturday morning) so decided to treat it to a new set of plugs just in case. This is the 5.7 Hemi, so has 16 of the wee devils. I managed to do 8 yesterday lunchtime and was ready to do the other 8...
  16. ICE & Blue&Me
    I've had a quick look and not seen a definative answer to this question, so folks: What is the maximum size USB drive size you can plug into the Blue&Me USB socket in the glove box? I've read the manual and it says it can't add more than 20,000 tracks to the playlist, so won't play more than...
  17. Alfa MiTo
    What does it say in your manual for the 'maximum load on roof' in Appendix 1? If you've got an early mito (cira 09) then the chances are the manual may be wrong!!! I recently discovered this when ARUK gave me a code which I thought was to do with Brembo brake upgrade on the older TB 155s, but it...
  18. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm running LC1 wideband lambda's on both of my cars, but have issues with 2.0TS's setup. Problem is that lambda transmit its voltage too low for the ECU - Alfadiag reads values between -0.16 and 0.73 and fault code for poor mixture immediately appears when revs drop to idle. I can setup LC1...
  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The correct specification tyre for my 156 is 215/45 ZR17 91Y. I have seen Toyo Proxes T1-R 215/45 R17 91W for £74 each at Blackcircles Is there any issue with fitting W rated tyres instead on Y rated ones?
