  1. Whining clutch noises

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi Everyone, I recently bought a 2011 1.4 170hp Multi Air. Yesterday was a first time I drove it in rain, and I spent quite some time in traffic. When releasing the clutch it produces a whining noise. The car has 100.000km in the clock, so I'm afraid the clutch is simply dying - have anyone...
  2. Turbo noises just on first spin

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Like the title says I'm getting noise from the turbo when I first start driving when the turbo starts up. I can't explain the sound could be screech could be whistle I'm not good at sound description. It only lasts a few seconds but I'm a bit gloomy about it. Could it be starting dry?The turbo...
  3. 159 2.4 Jtdm 20V noises

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Started hearing very unusual noises from my 2.4 Jtdm.. I don't know if you can pick it up from the video but there is a high pitched buzzing/resonating sound inside the cabin + a rumbling sound coming from the engine. This happens upon acceleration and starts around 2000rpm. To give you a hint -...
  4. bloomin noisy noises all over my car!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    help! I had the suspension done on my car, full shocks, springs, ARBs and Droplinks. Drives perfectly, but god almighty, during the warmer weather, there were squeeks and creaks galore! I'm pretty certain its the PU bushes up front on the ARB kit, but the rear is a conundrum - I'm certain its...
  5. Noises Fromm dash

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I have a 159 v6 I notice that when the climate control is on I can hear noises from the dash, if I flick the a/c off it goes, so seems to be connected to the a/c aspect of the ventilation. I have also noticed when I switch the car off, it sounds like fans etc are moving in the dash fora few...
  6. Suspension noises - Any advice

    Alfa GTA
    Hi for the last 3/4 years there has been a reoccurring "graunching noise" from front suspension area. Heard from startup primarily when turning steering very low speed and on uneven roads. At higher speeds not heard with engine/road noise etc. Have had the following replaced during that time...
  7. 159 2.4 jtdm strange new noises

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Last week I was driving to work when I noticed that the air-conditioning had stopped working without notice. Previously it had been lovely and cold after its re-gas last year. I wasn't concerned until I got to work, turned off the AC button and heard a horrendous nails on chalk board kind of...
  8. 2.0 JTDM 140 2011 weird noises

    Alfa Giulietta
    I'm hearing weird noises on my 2.0 JTDM 140 2011 65k miles. Sounds like scratching/shaking/rattling. Not Diesel engine rattle! Only hear it at low speeds when accelerating in 2nd or 3rd gear. Only when engine is warm. Doesn't happen when engine is cold. Sounds like it's at front right...

  10. Alfa 164 V6 engine noises?

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Just bought an Alfa 164 3.00 V6 which has a noisy starter motor grinds a little when the car starts . No real background on the car. I expect the starters work real hard over the years to get the big engine started As well the oil pressure indicated doesn't seem massive but the engine has no...
  11. 159 Thermostat Question & Other 'Noises'

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I've been driving around in my brother's 159 QTronic for the last week or so as I was suppose to replace the rear window regular for him, but when I pulled it all apart, the replacement part was incorrect (they sent the front one out by mistake), so I've been waiting for the replacement to...
  12. Grinding/scraping noises when turning right at low speed in car park?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi guys, When I turn right to go up/down the ramps at my work car park, I can hear a scraping/grinding like noise coming from the front left (passenger) side of the car. Anyone else ever experience this? I also wanted to ask about suspension creaking noises that I also when going over speed...
  13. GT V6 diff. noises

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My passengers side diff. is making a strange nose, or at least I think it is the diff because it is coming from that direction, passenger side. I removed the tyre and spun the hub by hand and it makes the same noise. The noise is like we used to do as kids, put a piece of hard paper to touch...
  14. No boost - no noises or smoke

    Alfa Giulietta
    I went for a nice run with my friends to a local town (Cullinan, South Africa) and then we stopped and had a look at some cars for a friends girl. On my way back (distance of around 10km) half way my turbo stopped boosting. There was no noise, no smoke, and no error messages. Nothing to...
  15. 159 Q4 - Clicking Noises...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, the car has developed an unpleasant click, seems to be from the front right but I'm checking the other corners this weekend. It sounds like a shaft problem to me and I suspect the inner CV/Pot Joint, there feels like there is a little play when grabbing the body and rotating the brake...
  16. Air con noises

    Alfa Giulietta
    Air con doesn't usually make any noise but switched it on this evening and could hear a constant creaking, whining noise, then noticed a noise very like an immersion heater coming from centre vents, like gas flowing through pipes. Seemed to build up in volume then slowly dissappears before doing...
  17. Car is making some bizarre noises!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    It seems to be related to engine and/or ambient temperature, because I haven't really noticed until things have gotten more chilly! Noise 1: There's a squeaking at startup/when the engine is cold. Maybe squeaking is a bit harsh, much more like a chirping sound. I'm guessing it's the alternator...
  18. Notchy noises from front wheels at slow speeds.

    Alfa MiTo
    I'm thinking it could be the top mounts, any other ideas? Happens when I turn the steering wheel either way.
  19. Strange spring noises in SW.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    When hitting bumps in the road, or steering while stationary, I'm getting 'spring being hit' type noises: 'boing'. It sounds like it's coming from the off side front road spring. It used to be once in a blue moon. Recently, after testing the car's slalom response, it happened on every bump. Next...
  20. Alfa Brera 2.4 JTDM - Strange noises and boost needle eratic

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Ok so this has been going on for a while now and its so unpredictable I just cant put my finger on what it could be - can you help? ENGINE STARTING Sometimes: When you start the engine it is lumpy and cloud of smoke out of back when it fires up. Sometimes: Starts perfectly with no smoke WHEN...
