  4. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All, Two weeks ago I got the MSCF failure come up in the display, and had reduced performance. The car seemed to drive fine but wouldn't rev past 3.2k revs, at which point it felt like it had hit a limiter. It then went off and normal performance came back. Now it has come on again - with...
  5. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    The wifes Spider 2.2 JTS has some mold around the inside of the area where the hood sits when in down position. It is not possible to access it during the hood in motion mode, as I really want to keep both hands working!! Is it safe to stop the hood in motion half way through so I can access...

    What a plucky car! It was running at the front with the big v8s. Googled his car and it seemed to have run an Alfaholics suspension setup and Powerbrake kit. Wonder what they've done with the motor?
  7. The Technology Section
    Hi, I have a new outside light to install but it has no motion sensor, I'd prefer it to not be on all the time and would like a compact sensor I can install remotely to the light which may also be able to trigger other security systems like a chime. Anybody done similar? Ive been looking at...
  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just go a 'Motion Control System Failure' warning on the car. A bit of research says that one cause is a dying battery - which should be checked BEFORE taking it to a dealer - who may fail to diagnose it and think it is something like a faulty ECU. So how can I check the general health of the...

  10. Alfa 164 & 166

    Hi all, Ive got a 156 2.0 TS for about a year now, and I used to do about 420 miles on a tank. But since the last 2 months without changing my driving, I cannot go beyond 300 miles!! I found the car much slower than before, I first thought my brakes were gripped, but had it checked, all fine...
