  1. Loss of power and gear change arrows

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, As the title suggests, I have a strange problem with my Giulietta. It’s a 2011 jtdm 140. The issue I’m having is quite strange. The car pulls and drives well, but occasionally, the gear change arrows stop working and the car looses power. It’s not in limp mode and there are no codes on the...
  2. Changed my exhaust - power loss?

    Alfa Giulietta
    I recently changed my 1.4 MA downpipe due to the old one being built improperly. I had a 76mm downpipe leading into a 63mm midpipe and then into the stock exhaust from the centre resonator. Car ran well, no issues. The downpipe broke off on a weld recently and I had a new pipe built. To save...

  13. A power steering problem already!

    Alfa MiTo
    Just picked up my first Alfa this afternoon, the 1.3 diesel (2010). Within half an hour of driving away and filling up with fuel I got a message on the dash saying that the power steering is unavailable? I've been reading other threads etc, and see that this is a common fault? I managed to drive...
  14. Noisy power steering pump

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi guys, My 159 has just started making an awful whining/groaning noise on startup. Am I right in thinking that the reservoir is a weak point on these cars and should be replaced with the updated version? Also, I have the red fluid in mine and want to change it to the GI/R green oil and see...
  15. Heater and power sockets not working

    Alfa Giulietta
    Last week I fitted a dashcam to my G using a fuse tap into F31 as suggested elsewhere on here. It may be a coincidence, but since then my heater and fan don't work, and today I noticed that the power socket by the handbrake and also the one in the boot don't work. I'm puzzled as their fuses are...
  16. Alfa 159 1.9 jts broken power delivery.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, my 159's power delivery is on the fritz, when I put my down the power delivery isn't smooth. It jerks under acceleration. Its as if the power comes through for a second then no power. Most of the time there is almost no power. It revs fine but no power. I think it could be the petrol filter...
  17. Courtesy light power for exterior handle lights?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I recently bought some little red led strips to act as external handle lights (they are low lumen for a nice subtle glow). I don't need to know how naff you think they might's my car! They were standard on my old BMW and I liked them...I also fitted them to my Jeep. It was easy on the...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi I have just replaced the power steering hose from pump to rack on my 159 Ti 2.4 after the short hose sprung a leak. All the oil drained out when doing this so how do I refill the system without damaging the pump? I filled the reservoir but it doesn’t seem to fill much of the system. Hope...
