    I was having an engine fitted by bob the builder he lost the rubber seal or seals on the big silver screw that's on the flexi pipe at the back of the engine just below the power steering reservoir. Picture below. Two questions does the fitting go clockwise or anticlockwise and can I use a bit...

    Hello everyone, Happy Holidays and all that ;-) I have a slight issue with the power steering on my 57 plate GT Sometimes after a cold start (i.e. overnight or longer) the power steering takes a few turns of the steering wheel to 'kick-in'. What I mean by that, is that it's very heavy for a...
  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All, I have a problem whereby when reversing there seems to be no power steering at all, when driving normally it seems to work most of the time. Took the cap off the power steering reservoir and the level is ok, although doesn't seem to be pumped through as there is no fluid movement when...

    The access is difficult. It is above the exhaust pipe, so maybe pulling it to the side is an option. Has anyone here replaced the eps rack?
  9. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider

Of course with massive power ( I have a Borg Warner s300 which made on the supra of a friend 1000hp) :) The Engine on my Alfa 166 Subframe (copied...

  12. Alfa Giulietta
    I've been having a peculiar problem with my 2012 Giulietta Multiair. Bit of background, the turbo was replaced two months ago by a reputable mechanic who also owns a very fast Giulietta. I had custom software done last month and the car pulled really strong, I could clearly feel the difference...

    So this was scary and I clearly need to get it checked: *Edit - its a 159 2.4 ti sw. At 9pm last night while i was driving and making a turn, the car suddenly lost power steering - I could barely turn the wheel. The brakes were also not responsive and the gas pedal was also hardly getting a...

    My 2.0 T.S. 147 has lost power. The engine light has never come on. I've reset the ECU and throttle plus cleaned the MAF sensor. It idles descently but runs rough at lower rpms and just not the same power. I assume since it's sucking fuel like crazy that the engine light should come on...
  16. Alfa Giulia
    Well, after 6-7 mths of trouble free ownership from new, my Veloce's dashboard went fully up in lights on Monday night. The main warning lights i got were for AST! failure and all associated systems with it (ESC, collision detection etc.). The car felt very heavy to steer and felt like...

  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Morning Folks So new to ownership of an alfa, I seem to have a sudden punch in power at approx 3000rpm. I have removed the EGR and gave it a clean, everything worked on it and looks like it had been done recently. I removed the MAP last night and it was fairly gunked up so cleaned out what i...
  20. Tuning & Upgrades
    Hello all, Just wanted some input on what I might need to be able to hit 300hp from a 156 20v engine. I know i'm going to need bigger injectors and a bigger intercooler, map sensor, and will need to something about the exhaust system. But will I need to change the turbo? if so what would...
