    Bugger. Driving in heavy, stop/start, traffic on the motorway last week our 1998 V6 156 just cut out - I hadn't noticed but the temp gauge had gone off scale.

    Just recently bought a 147 1.6 lusso and the sterio only comes on when it actually feels ready, usually about 4 or 5 mins into a journey. I dont touch it, it just comes on when ready. If I put just the ignition on then the radio usually comes on straight away. I did notice yesterday that the...

  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    As above. Is this indicative of a gearbox on the way out, one that needs more oil in the box or the clutch is going and needs replacing? When I say hard to get into gear I mean literally won't go in unless engine is off - it will grind if I try to push it into gear. If I start in gear with...
