  1. TPMS warnings - odd behaviour

    Alfa Stelvio
    Tyre pressure warnings in the Stelvio I’ve come to realise are annoying and odd. Reading the manual, it seems the car knows what pressure the tyres should be and there is no reset or override button , so to clear the msgs I have to ensure the tyres are reinflated to the settings in the manual...
  2. Odd Fiat engine question

    General Motoring Discussion
    I'm looking at a Fiat 900 engine to cram in my Reliant, however the one I've found isn't what I thought it was. I was after a F.I.R.E series engine, but I seem to have got myself a 100 series instead. Dimensions seem to match up, however until It's paid for and removed I have no idea what the...
  3. Odd!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    The car in this autotrader as has some features of a Prodrive special edition but it isn't advertised as one. Does anyone on here own this? (Tried ringing the seller but there was no answer) I just found a great car on Auto Trader...
  4. Odd noise at around 2k rpm

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey everyone. I was wondering if I could get some advice. I have a 1.9JTDM GT, and am getting an odd whirry/ sounds like a bearing noise from the front of the car at around 2000rpm and above. I tired being stationary and pressing the accelerator and it makes the noise. I have also tried...
  5. New Giulia, odd rattle

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi guys. First post here after taking delivery of a new Giulia Veloce 10 days ago. Moved across from a 3 series and I'm loving the drive, very engaging! However, at low speeds (particularly very low speeds and reversing) I am noticing a rattle which is rather annoying. It doesn't sound...
  6. 1.9 odd key starting problem

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Have a problem starting the car, his has been something that has gotten gradually worse over a year. When I turn the key normal the engine has a real hard time starting from cold with a lot of smoke, it didn't do this before, and would take 3 or 4 long attempts to start it. Another thing that...
  7. Air con - odd "grinding" noise

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere, but another item on the snag list of my new 159tbi sportwagon. When the air con is engaged, there is an odd hollow grinding noise that changes in pitch as the engine revs. It isn't present when the air con is switched off, so I'm worried the...
  8. Odd 159 Radaitor message

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    How odd Driving 159 1.9 JTDM (2007 model) When temp finally gets to 90c on the dial i get a message pop up saying excessive fluid then is vanishes and the temp is fine on the gauge Normally sits between 80c- 90c. Water pump was changed in Sept 17 along with cam belt with brand new coolant...
  9. Odd battery issue

    General Motoring Discussion
    This is on Mrs Bazza's Audi S4. The battery was replaced a year or two ago, so should still be strong - and indeed in normal use, everything is fine. But if the car isn't used for over a week, we often find it flat. She does do mainly short journeys, but once a week does a ten mile each way...
  10. QV flat battery; very odd. Is it just me?

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi all My 10 month old QV suffered a flat battery recently after opening the boot on the boot button when car was locked. I understand a battery cannot just discharge instantly, but it was all a little odd. The boot opened then 2 loud high-pitched alarms sounds. So I closed the boot lid but...
  11. Odd clunk on the 75

    Alfa 75, RZ, SZ
    As seems to be the case with some Alfas, you fix one thing and something else goes wrong. I've just changed the clutch slave cylinder - not for the faint-hearted and now I have an odd knocking sound/sensation. Sometimes, when you start the car up there is a knock from underneath somewhere...
  12. Odd noise when driving at speed

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi folks, Hoping some may be able to help with a potential problem with my 159 (1.9 JTDM). I noticed it last week when driving over 40mph(ish) I've noticed a high pitched whine coming from the engine bay. The car has just head the 60k mark so fair low mileage (2009 plate). I did a quick search...
  13. Key issue - paired electronics, odd mechanics

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Had the 159 for going on 3 years now, and still have both keys, which I swap every 6 months or so because... well I don’t know, just because. Whatever,... they both work fine for remote unlocking, opening the boot, and running the car. However I noticed a few weeks ago that the tang of the key...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    hi guys ive tried searching but cant seem to find anything that correctly fits my issue. while driving i get low oil pressure warning pop up on the dash and the car feels like it stales just before this happens ! this can happen at any time and doesnt follow any kind of pattern like bends or...
  15. Odd knocking in the B pillar

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi All, I am getting a bit of knocking sounds coming from over my right shoulder/right ear. I think it's from the driver's side B pillar. I've taken the trim off and checked the three nuts in there for seatbelt mechanism and all tight. There's nothing else in there that could knock I don't...
  16. odd screaching/squeak from behind drivers seat/door??

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi All, I've recently eliminated some squeaks and rattles. oh boy! However, as a results my beautiful car has decided I need another one to compensate. So, now, in a hard left hand bend / sharp corner such that you end up being pushed into the seat firmly (not I think relevant to the squeak...
  17. Odd bleep

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Anyone any ideas. My 159 has this tendency to bleep at me every now and then for no apparent reason. There are no warning lights on, I've checked the menu for speed limits (set at 70) with bleep turned down to minimum. I can't see or find anything wrong and the beep probably only does it about...
  18. Odd starter motor issue

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Just the other day I noticed that when I tried to start my 159 2.2 JTS, the starter was sluggish on the first compression stroke but sped up for the next few and started. When I tried again it was fine. Since then it's been doing it more and more. Battery is a couple of years old and has never...
  19. new GTV, odd clutch feeling

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all Just bought a 1998 Phase 2 GTV V6. Vela blue with tan interior and only 65k fully documented miles. Really pleased with it. I got it cheap with a few known minor (hopefully) issues to sort in my own time. One of which is the clutch. It may not be much of an issue. The bite point...
  20. Odd noise. Wheel bearing?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Recently noticed that, on smooth surfaces, I can hear a relatively quiet sort of humming, "ooh" noise up front. It's more prominent under throttle and only over 40mph, becoming unnoticeable over 70 as road noise takes over. Strangely, it disappeared with the recent wet weather but came back...
