oil

  1. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 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...
  2. 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.
  3. 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...
  4. 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...

    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...
  8. 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.
  9. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 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...
  10. 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...
  11. Alfa Giulietta
    I did an oil change on the Giulietta about 3 months ago, but now I have an extremely obnoxious and distracting warning popping up every five minutes. Is there any way to reset this message without using MultiEcuScan? I don’t have a laptop and the iOS version doesn’t work. Thanks
  12. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I really got mad and lost !!!!!! I wanted to change oil to my 159, for my humble experience it is an easy job since I’ve replace oil for different type of car but this really annoying , I reached the oil sump plug it supposed to be 8 Hex but it doesn’t fit I try the simetric and the inch...
  13. Alfa Giulietta
    61 plate 1.4 MA (170), that I've owned for about a month now. Engine oil is starting to get a bit low (just over a 3rd of the way down the dip stick - I know, I should have checked!) Reading around on the MA engines I know that they're quite particular about oil. Digging into the history of mine...
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have nearly 5 litres of 10w60 Valvoline semi-syn oil that I used to use with my 3.2 GT. Have since switched to Fuchs fully Syn so if anyone in the E. London/Essex area around Woodford wants it it's yours if you pick up. PM me if interested.
  15. Alfa Giulia
    Hi all, As the title suggests, I'd like to know what the best oil is for a little top-up in my Giulia Veloce. The car has only been serviced by main dealers since new so, ideally, it needs to be something that will 'mix' properly with the existing oil. Presumably, main dealers are using Selenia...
  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Evening all, I've recently changed my rocker cover gasket and since then when the car gets upto full temp I get a slight oil smell coming through air vents. I can't smell it when driving only when I'm sat idling at traffic lights etc anyone know what's causing this? Or had it happen to them...
  17. Alfa Giulia
    Fellow Alfa owners and mechanic friends, I have my Veloce booked in for its (first) 9K service on the 8th November which is when its convenient for me with my work schedule. It now looks like I am going to be hitting 10K by the time I get to the service date, can anyone forsee any issues with...
  18. Alfa Giulia
    Hi, I have a Alfa Romeo Giulia 2.2 180 cv diesel engine built on Nov/2017 and while checking the air filter condition, I've noticed that there is oil in the tube right after the air filter housing. It's pretty similar to this thread from another forum...
  19. Alfa MiTo
    Hello, i own a 2012 Alfa Mito MultiAir 77 kW. To avoid MultiAir issues, i changed the engine oil each year after about 10'000 km. After the oil change at 110'000 a few weeks ago, i got a MultiAir actor Error P1064. Until then, i never had an issue with my MiTo. I've read a lot about the...
