    Howdy guys! I'm having a really nasty wind whistle at 80+ km/h, at lower speeds I don't hear anything. The car is LHD if that matters, there's no water or wind coming through the seals, windows are closed shut, I've done the up+down+hold for 10 seconds calibration = same stuff. I do suspect...
  2. Alfa GTA
    Hi guys, Just picked the car up from the garage tonight after having new suspension kit, front and rear anti-roll bars and new drop links. Obviously I was looking forward to the new set up. As i drove the first mile I thought things were sounding a bit more whiney than usual. I'd been driving...
  3. Tuning & Upgrades
    Hi folks, I recently fitted a Supersprint backbox to my v6. At the same time I replaced the centre silencer with a Ragazzon stainless section with silencer. I'm happy enough with the general way it sounds and looks.. BUT it sounds very "boomy" in the car at exactly 2,000 RPM. It seems to...
  4. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just put a new pair of Falken's on the rear to replace well worn Accelera's , after only 40 miles OS tyre is already showing wear on the outside edge. I have had my tracking checked twice and it's spot on ......The Accelera was worn so bad on the edge that despite the inner tread having 4mm I...
  5. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all, I have a problem with my GTV v6 phase 2 During the recent good weather I started to notice a bit of a rattle/ticking when I was driving with the windows down, it got worse over a couple of days (hardly any miles) Now it sounds like the noise those kid toy chattering teeth make...

  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys when i was coming home saturday i was travelling along at 60mph when my car developed a nasty knocking noise and I lost power. I managed to coast it in the petrol station where I checked under the bonnet. None of the belts had came off and there was oil in it, so I tried to start it and...

    I have been lured by the forces of darkness and am now the owner of a diesel with a evil growl ;).......just needs Gus to sprinkle some fairy dust on the ecu :D
  10. Alfa 145 & 146
    I've got a burning smell around the engine. The smoke coming out of the exhaust smells fine, the smell's just around the engine. I can't tell if the smell is burning oil or some other liquid. None of the fluids are decreasing noticeably. Upon last service they poured way too much oil in the...
  11. Alfa 75, RZ, SZ
    Guys, I have just bought an Alfa 90 2.5 V6. After driving it for 2 weeks all good, this morning I get a nasty loud rattle at idle seemingly from the top of the engine which varies with engine speed. Oil press is good. My other Alfas are 2 litre nords, so I am new to the V6. I suspect valve...
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Picked up a W plate 156 1.8TS from an auction tonight, 75K miles and MOT until June. Cost me £400 as a cheap runabout. Unfortunatley when i got hold of it (didn't spend enough time before hand looking at it) I started the engine and there is quite a harsh growl from the top end when you rev it...

  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, Mike2909's 156 has just developed a nasty engine noise. It's fine on tickover, but a loud rattle begins when it starts to rev. When it returns to idle, the revs drop too far as well, and it nearly cuts out. The sound seems to be coming from the back of the engine, possibly around the...
  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello folks. Have some nasty stains on the drivers seats that have been there since I bought the car, have tried Vanish and Turtle Wax upholstery cleaners but no joy...any advice??? Pete.
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi Guys, Nightmare! I have put a big scratch/gouge/dent in my 156 V6 along the side, and the car is in the lovely but hard to fix Nuvolla Pearl Blue colour. It is all my fault - there was a sticking out kerb stone that I drove round too close to that stuck into the side of the vehicle. The...

  20. Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi As you may know I’ve recently purchased a Ford Puma (sorry for swearing) for my wife. She is learning to drive and then wants to do a 28-mile round commute. It drives very well. The rest of the car is just shockingly cheap. It’s not even in the same league as the Alfa Now this has...
