    Hi All This is not related to my Alfa but my partners Fiat 500C. It is the 1.4 16v 2009 model (35k miles) and has had this engine light fault for years and no one has managed to find the issue. I have taken it to a number of Fiat specialists who say, its an intermittent fault and the engine is...

    Sorry Guys, but due to a serious head injury I endured some years ago, I'm currently in a lot of discomfort again at the base of my skull due to a damaged vertebrae and back on the meds as well for the nerve damage down my right side. I've sold my TT daily driver as that driving position...

    Alfa Romeo Giulietta 2011 1.6 JTDM 76k I've posted on here a few times about this! - so far the garage I bought my car from in July has been unable to fix my rear wiper! Wiper won't park properly or sometimes won't switch off... If all points to rear loom, I should add that all other...
  5. Alfa GTA
    My GTA is currently undergoing an extensive engine makeover, hoping to complete this over the winter months. First major job done today was cleaning of the aluminium cast parts. Opted for blasting as it has proved difficult to achieve a factory fresh cast finish with cleaning agents. Very...
  6. Alfa Giulietta
    After five trips to an independent Alfa specialist for repairs, my rear windscreen wiper is still not parking correctly. Several (very competent) mechanics have tried soldering loose wires together, replacing the wiper motor, diagnostics, and looked into replacing the body computer. They have...

    Sorry this is another thread on a well covered topic... Spent some time trying to find a leak into the front passenger footwell (underseal, grommets, door membrane, door seal) Today traced a steady stream of water coming from behind the ECU/glovebox running down the thick braided cable that...

  9. Alfa MiTo
    Hi all, I've been having issues trying to get my Alfa Red paint sorted out - and after first raising it with Alfa last July, and paying for my own paint inspection (which they ignored), they finally carried out a paint inspection last week. I'm still waiting to hear back - and they've told me...

    Ok, so far I have replaced to EGR, fitted the limiting plate, replaced lower turbo hose and pulled huge amounts of hair out.... but this morning, after having some great acceleration post fitting the new (autolusso) turbo hose, the low power and black smoke issue has re-occured! Excelleration...
  13. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    ...which specialist would you take it to? Someone who is really good at pinpointing an issue, who thinks laterally, who investigates issues and knows (modern) Alfas inside-out? -- My 159 Ti has been back to the main dealer a couple of times and I've been sent away with no satisfaction. The...
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT

  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All, Roughly two years ago my 156 refused to start and the AA came out & found fault codes relating to fuel. Took advice from a very good alfa mechanic who cleared codes and has serviced & repaired the car over time. Never had any further problem although injector light on dash does come on...

  18. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    While my 147 JTD Mjet was in the garage and I was given a Mito 1.6? TDM for the day (180 miles of Motorway, A and B roads, and town centre driving. Heres my 'opinion'. Both cars have 215/45 R17 shoes all round. The Mito feels as if it is the same size car as the 147. A good start. The...

    "Rev" US slant but pretty good production values for a website programme.
  20. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I know that there are plenty of threads/posts about this snag, all of them with suggestions as to how to cure the fault. However, i've followed most of them to the letter ie " checked for blown number plate bulbs, checked the rev counter for blown diodes, stripped the rear light cluster out to...
