misfire or hesitation

  1. Slight misfire/hesitation on part/half/full throttle

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi, My GTV has had a throttle issue since I had it, only the last 10% of throttle left was always sticky, so you would have to push it through the floor for the throttle to move that last bit to 100% WIDE OPEN. It never bothered me as I knew exactly how to handle it, I didn't/don't know why...
  2. My 2002 GTV Phase II 3.0 sound like a subaru

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    a very well maintained and a sweet ride..up until a two weeks ago. it started with a strange vibration,ever so slight, at above 4K rpm and under load.I know this motor very well so knew something was not right. (slightly down on power). This was also intermittent. Then the the car started to...
  3. Misfire/Hesitation at low throttle

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi Everyone! First of all I have done some searching but cannot seem to find a similar issue, the closest issue that i can see is a blocked EGR valve on a 159 jtd. Anyway on to my issue, I have a 1998 916 GTV v6. Now when I accelerate with the throttle below half way, sometimes the car seems...
  4. A few 156 JTS Problems ;)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    All the following problems have occurred/been corrected roughly in chronological order during my first year of ownership. Hopefully this may be of help to some of you. 1) Water on the floor before I even bought the car: Demanded a new radiator. 2) Petrol fumes from the rear of the car: Demanded...
  5. 159 2.0JTDm misfire/hesitation

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, Had my 159 for about 10 weeks now and here's my first 'problem'. It started about a month after I got it but it was so infrequent then to not cause any concern, but now it's happening almost every time I drive it; When cruising along at very light load I get a hesitancy/misfire where...
  6. AARRGGHHH! Horrible Mis-fire/hesitation - 156 V6

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Righto, just had the clutch done because of failed thrust bearing, springs etc. £527 Garage says 'its developed a bit of a mis-fire' It already had some problems as MAF is on its last legs I expect, so I paid up and thought nothing of it Driving home and it has massive hesitation throughout...
  7. 2002 147 1.6 TS Misfire/Hesitation

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Good evening all, Newbie here with a quick, most probably common question. I have just picked up a cracking little 1.6 147 Lusso for my girlfriend. The car was too good to pass up at the price as it has FSH, 17'' Supersport alloys, Grey leather, a genuine 60k and it has just had the belts...
  8. Misfire/Hesitation like a dose of the trotts

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Right guys this is just a quick note to see of you have encountered this problem before. Pulling out of junction the car will intermitally hesitate/misfire when you apply the loud pedal. It can only be described as how stuff runs from your rear when you have a dose of the trotts. I've run the...
