  2. Ticking Sound when NOT braking

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hello, Recently got a set of EBC pads and discs fitted on the front and I can hear a ticking sound (that is speed dependent) from the front of the car (I think?) which then goes away when I apply the brakes. Doesn't matter if I press hard or light it stops. (had the brakes on for around...

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, I'm Elod from Hungary and I need some help with my Giulietta My Giulietta makes some strange noises coming from the engine bay. I can hear it only at idle and low RPMs. It is a whining (bearing??) noise maybe. After I start it up it whines. If I turn on my seat heating, or turn on my...

  5. Rumbling/vibrating noise from front left wheel

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello all, After going over a bump, I noticed my 159 makes a rumbling or vibrating noise when turning left at 40+mph, and gets louder at higher speeds. I've read that it could be improper wheel balance or knackered bearings or all manner of other issues.
  6. Inner CV Joint noise

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I've been tracking down a knocking noise over the past few months and I've got it finally locked down to the near side Inner CV joint. Pulling on the shaft I can get a bit of play in only one direction so I am thinking this is likely to be the spider itself rather than the cup. I've got the...
  7. Whistling noise

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Blackline GT 1.9 Just changed oil and filter, air filter, cleaned EGR valve (although it was very clean) and fitted new EGR gasket, Now I have noticed a whistling noise at revs before the turbo boost, it then goes away when the turbo kicks in, car runs like a dream with no loss of power. 54000...
  8. Giuietta 1.4TB Weird Engine Pulsating Noise

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all, I am a prospective Giulietta owner and this is my first post on this forum. I am looking to buy a 2014 Giulietta 1.4TB with 45,000 miles on it. The car is imported by an Alfa dealer from UK to Ireland (as I'm based in Ireland). It was bought on the British Car Auctions, and it just...
  9. Knocking noise from rear??

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    While driving last night I started to hear and feel a dull thud from the rear of the car, as I am still waiting to get the rear suspension work done I had some depressing thoughts before I had a chance to stop to check. Turns out the rubber mount on the right side of rear silencer had snapped...
  10. Low oil, tappet noise (3.2)

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Engine started making a noise, initially it sounded sort of flutter like, (can't think of a better description), so thought it was something flapping about or something underneath. It eventually became more apparent as a tappet like noise. I checked the oil, and it was very low, below the...
  11. Road noise

    Alfa Stelvio
    i am wondering if others have noticed an excessive road noise with their Stelvio. In mine it's almost as if the window is slightly open. granted I have 20" wheels, it feels excessive even compared to my previous 159 TI TBI. I am wondering if the door seals can be improved / upgraded?
  12. 1.9jtdm grinding noise when AC is on

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello, alfa owners! I am a bit concerned about my 2006 159 1.9jtdm 16v and the fact that some mystery noise comes on when I turn on the A/C. The noise can only be heard at low speeds and is relevant to the engine RPM which leads me that it is a pulley. I have had the car checked at the local...
  13. Noise when put aircon/fans on

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, So I’m slowly going through any niggles on the 159 1.9 2007 150bhp I bought last week. One of the main things that is quite annoying is soon as put 1 bar of the fans on, quite an annoying wering sound starts which gets louder the faster you go. At a complete shot in the dark something to...

    Hi, this regards a 2008 159 2.4. the engine was rebuilt after a so called diesel specialist had to replace cyl5 injection pipe, then drove car untill it failed, there was no water in cooling system... To cut it short the motor had to be overhauled. They welded a new nipple on the fuel rail...
  15. EGR, MAP, whining noise and check engine light, opinions welcome!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi A couple days ago I cleaned my EGR and MAP sensor, as I had some time on my hands and have heard its a easy enough job to do on your own. Took em apart, cleaned them. MAP sensor was fully clogged, I sorted that out. (see image) Took off EGR, cleaned it. I noticed a couple of things: 1 -...
  16. Strange engine noise 156 JTS

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    When ticking over the engine makes a strange noise like someone trying to play a recorder. If I remove the dip stick or oil filler car the noise stops. It must be related to crankcase pressure. It's not coming from the PCV valve. Any ideas???

  19. Strange noise when accelerating

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello. It seems like I have a problem, there's this weird sound coming from somewhere front left of the car (GTV V6 TB), I'd describe it as a loose belt kind of noise, like it's clanking. It's not ever present, just seems to appear when giving the gas pedal a squeeze, mind you, the car can be...
  20. Alfa GT back noise

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, here I am again...this time asking if anyone have an idea of what this noise can be? It comes from the rear...would it be the suspension or even worst? In the first clip I'm parking in my garage so I'm driving slowly. In the second clip I'm driving on a 30km/h street. It makes the same...
