  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Dear Alfisti, Upon seeing a video about what lack of oil pressure can do to crankshaft bearings, I tried to read my oil pressure in MES and to my disappointment, it is not possible! Therefore, I investigated a bit into installing pressure and temperature gauges for the oil and people are...
  2. Alfa Giulia
    My veloce has done 120,000 KM, so a gearbox oil change is long overdue. ZF recommends no more than 80K, so it is a late already. Having watched several video's, changing the oil looks to be a pretty straight forward job to do myself. The only 'issue' I see is that they go over all the gears...

    Has anyone experienced the oil check screen not updating on the 2.0TB ? The default reading I get is as shown in image 1. If I follow the process to obtain an updated reading, I get the reading as shown in image 2. I added 300ml of oil and still get the same reading in image 2 after following...
  4. Alfa Giulia
    Did my first service on my Giulia, now trying to figure out if the amount of oil in my engine is what it's supposed to be. So what I didn't read anywhere but found out by accident (not sure if anyone is aware or I just missed it), is that when you do a oil change procedure on MES connected to...
  5. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I was having a look under my 159 1.9jtdm sportwagon for (Front sub-frame rust) and noticed a layer of oil covering various parts middle/frobnt bottom of the engine. Just wondering if this is something I need to attend too or just a non older diesel issue. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. wa
  6. Alfa Giulia
    Hi guys, thought I would ask for help as I don’t know if I overfilled or not. My car is a 2.2d and it does have dipstick but it’s absolutely useless when topping the car up. Used the electronic reading when topping up, took me about half an hour when topping up as I was too scared of...
  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello, My 147 2.0 T-Spark petrol goes through quite a bit of oil. And there’s the oil leak too… im doing a long distance motorway drive 200 miles soon then back again 4 days later. I’m guessing as the oil heats up over a long distance it gets thinner and leaks out at a faster rate than cold...
  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey, I drove home one day with my Alfa Romeo 147 (Diesel, from 2009), which never had problems with the oil pressure etc. The oil lamp turned on and i stopped my car and looked into the engines area. It had a little bit of oil on top which kinda calmed me down as I still had enough oil in my car...
  9. Alfa Giulia
    Hello the team!!! I am so sorry to write this first message here! I am French, and we do not have such a well forum dedicated to the Giulia... I hope you will find the issue of my 2017 2.2 giulia. Yesterday, "insuffisant oil pressure" displayed on my dash... Anyone knows which thing could...
  10. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I am ramping up prep for some track days this year in the Twinnie GTV. I will look to get a set of 16 inch wheels (either normal tyres or semi slicks, may be overkill), EBC yellowstuff front pads and standard discs, ATE TYP200, polybush the rear because the car still had original bushes. It will...
  11. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi! My 159 (2010 2.0) has been leaking oil for sometime now but I never really paid much attention to it since the oil indicator is always full. Recently I notice an increase on the oil spots on my parking floor so I got worried even though the oil indicator is at the max level still. Do you...
  12. Alfa Giulietta
    Quick question for a an Alfa Romeo guilietta 1.4 tb 120hp does everyone recommend the Petronas seliena engine oil or is there other better alternatives? I do have plans to modify the car slightly mainly by doing a remap amongst other things.
  13. Alfa MiTo
    Hi, I have a 2018 0.9 turbo twin air mito with just shy of 25k miles. It’s had a service at 13k. It’s overdue a service due to the dealer putting the indicator at 1 year or 20k miles and is booked in for this month. Just before that service the car just went into limp mode threw warning lights...
  14. Alfa Giulia
    Hi all, (car: 2017 Giulia Veloce) So a couple weeks back, I noticed a small amount of smoke coming up from under the bonnet. Upon closer inspection I noticed oil and some oil residue around the top of the turbo, where the oil feed line enters. I called alfa assist and they took my car to my...

    Hey, I own an Alfa MiTo Lusso, 1.4 16v, the non turbo one my old dipstick rusted and snapped, fortunately I got it out, however it wasn't until yesterday when I checked my oil with my new dipstick, I couldn't see any on the dipstick (car was still war after 20 mile drive). I added less than a...

    Replacing Alfa 159 1.9 JTDM "Oil Cooler Heat Exchanger" with normal Oil Radiator. Hello again, I'm here with another problem that needs to be solved in my case. On April/2019 I had a problem, engine oil mixed with engine coolant, because of the "Oil Cooler Heat Exchanger" on my 1.9 JTDM had a...
  18. Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    I drive an Alfa Romeo 3.2 V6. Local mechanic say that the oil filter is loosen or it's spilling from the oil filter. Another local mechanic says it has to do with oil pump which might be faulty etc.
  19. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    So Im new to this alfa business having driven BMWs for 15 years. I bought my first 159 2.0l over the weekend. Its leaves a little puddle of oil under the rear engine when its parked up. I have tracked it down to some sort of oil return to sump. Looks like someone tried to bodge a fix. Iv tried...
  20. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello, I've got a leak which looks like it's coming from around the camshaft area of the front bank of my GT's V6. Any ideas what it could be and more importantly, how much it's likely to break my bank? There's no "Mayo" residue build up on the oil filler cap which makes me think (hope) it's...
