noise

  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Every now and then I get a whining / rubbing noise from the clutch when I'm pulling away. Main place it happens is the access ramp to the car park I use for work, so low speed and on a slight incline. Doesn't seem to happen all the time, but it still concerns me as does every new strange noise I...
  2. Alfa 145 & 146
    Hi, guys! I've been driving my 146 JTD with a strange rattling noise for a while and that noise had eventually been diagnosed as a broken belt driving pulley, attached to the crank shaft. I've learned that this was a relatively frequently occurring problem with the JTD engines (one of the few...

  4. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi there, alfisti! Did anyone experience an excessive wind noise level at cruise speed on your 159? The noise seems uniformly distributed upfront right and left of the car. It may be that I am wrong, but I find my 159 2.4 Mjet a bit noisy at speeds above 100 km/h (60mph). On the other hand, I...

    My 147 is making a vibrating noise when it reaches 1500 rpm. It is worse when its cold. It sounds like it is coming from the front of the engine near the heat shield area. I have checked the heat shield and there is no crack in that and the exhaust is in tact. Otherwise the car is running wel...
  6. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I am looking for a few ideas on what course of action to take to eliminate a droning noise coming from the front of my 2002 2.4 jtd s/w. the noise is there all the time that the wheels are turning. Applying the brakes, turning the steering wheel, free-wheeling out of gear, dipping the clutch...
  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi Guys, Sorry my first post has to be about my Alfa breaking down, but just wondering if anyone out there could give some advice.. I drive a 2000 156 Sportwagon 2.0TS selespeed. Today i was on a nice open road with sweet bends and no traffic, so i thought lets give the girl a run. I...
  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    have a noise coming from engine bay. It sounds a lot like putting something inside a fan while is spinning. I can't understand where it's coming from! It starts at about 2500rpm and it increases as the revs go up. When it's close to 6.000rpm it's where you can really hear it. I tried to...
  9. Alfa 75, RZ, SZ
    Hi, Another strange problem on my 75 TS. When the engine is started, I can hear a strange hissing/suction noise from somewhere behind the dashboard/centre console. The only way I can describe the noise is that it sounds like air or water being sucked into somewhere.... I can't hear anything...

  12. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    (The title refers, of course, to the car and not the driver) Hi I wonder if anyone can help. I have noticed that at high speeds the noise level in the car (due to the passenger door window seal) becomes unbearable. That means, at a speed of around 140kmh (87mph) there is a loud wind noise...
  13. General Alfa Discussion
    Hi I just wanted to check with other 1.9JTDM owners that the fact my new car sounds like a bag of spanners is characteristic of the engine. I've put it down to being a brand new and perhaps needed to bed in but it is surprisingly rattly (more so than our demo 406 HDI which has over 100k on...
  14. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    :( Guys, I've got a sort of scraping whining noise that only happens when I turn the front wheels right (deifinately coming from drivers side front wheel). Stationary or moving, it's exactly the same noise and only happens in one direction. Have had the car 2 years and the noise has (I think)...

  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    :confused: Hi all I am experiencing a low grinding noise from my sportwagon (like metal to metal contact) when I set off and let out the clutch and also when I go over bumps and when I brake. It sounds as if it is coming from behind the bulkhead on the drivers side behind the pedals. On the...
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, Our 98 156 has a strange noise from behind the dashboard. I've done some searches and found a lot of people have a "chattering" noise from there. However, the noise we have is much more like a ping-pong ball bouncing up and down in a cup... quite a clear, loud sound! Is this the same thing...
  18. Alfa GTA
    Got the 156 GTA with upgraded brakes(standard 330mm). Car was fine until today, when a stupid bus driver forgot to hit the brakes and was too close behind me, so it bumped into my GTA. Needless to say, my rear bumper is a mess, and the right rear panel is slightly moved, just a few(2-4) mm...
