Brand new to this forum and to owning an Alfa. I have an 09 Brera 2.4 Jtdm 20V 210hp with approx 34,000 miles. Recently it developed a slight whine while driving. I noticed the power steering fluid was low so investigated that. While stationary, and when I turn the wheels to full lock...
I need to replace my power steering fluid.
At the moment it’s clear no colour. Is this normal? Either way it’s getting changed.
Its a 2001 Petrol Manual 2.0L T-Spark 147.
Can anyone recommend which fluid to get and the volume of capacity since it’ll probably be flushed out?
How to remove 156 2.4jtd 10v Power steering pump. Bad knocking noise when engine is running. When I remove the aux belt noise is gone when running the engine. Noise seems high leading me to pas pump... Or alternator... Noise betwixt engine and firewall.
Every bit of advise will be appreciated...
I don't post very often but have found the site an amazing resource over the past few years and I would be very grateful for the your input. Please accept my apologies if this should be filed elsewhere.
I have a power steering hose leak (see photo) and I'm struggling to find a...
Hi guys and sorry for bringing up a topic which has been discussed countless times. However each and every time i guess there is a different variable to it. Here is mine: i bought the 2.4jtdm brera about a month ago. It had that dreadful noise everytime you would barely steer the wheel. Two...
So, upon inspecting the exhaust system I noticed a drop of red fluid on the oil filter. Turns out there is a leak from my power steering system, but I can't seem to understand what I'm looking at.
It seems like the leak is coming from the fitting/bolt securing the pipe in the picture. The bolt...
My powersteering started making strange whining noises recently, especially when turning while stationary.
I popped the powersteering bottle cap to find the container completely dry...:cheese:
I felt around the bottel, the breather pipe and all lines from it and could not feel any visble...
My MiTo radio often doesn't come on after it has rained. This wasn't such an issue but then the power steering also failed in heavy rain and the engine management light came on so I booked my car in. I have a warrantee so they arranged the garage who have come back saying the lamda...
I am back for more advice!
My 159 has developed an issues, the powersteering is making a right racket and juddering and when I turn the engine off it is bubbling and overflowing out of the reservoir.
I have looked a bit on the site and it suggest changing the reservoir first of all...

Any dealers with niceprice out there?
Also..Green fuild, should work with any? When I made last call about how...
I forgot how much I take power-steering for granted, until I lost it while driving today. :eek:
Most alarming! I was just pulling away when it informed me that my assisted steering was not available and the steering went 'very' heavy. It reminded me of the days before we had power-steering in...
Hey guys, I've got a problem with my powersteering - when I start off the steering is really tight until I pick up some speed and then it loosens off. I've checked the fluid and the belt was recently changed. Has anyone else had this problem? Any advice would be greatly appreciated :confused:
This subject comes up very often. There are posts that explain how to do it, but they are deep inside other threads. So allow me to gather all the info in 1 thread:
I'd like to have a howto guide thread to point to when our new members ask how to connect to their special ECUs. The Airbag...

funny clunk yesterday when driving out of a parking space.
Now the powersteering fails to function at tickover but it improves proportional to the revs.
2700rpm brings it back to "normal"
tried bleeding it lock to lock, tried topping up the fluid.
Started the car this morning as was greated by a whine coming from I think is the power steering pump. Has been silent up until this point.
I put full lock on both directions and the noise got a little worse.
After a few minutes though the noise goes away, the car then drives fine.

Hello you crazy boys!
Pls help. I damaged my powersteering pipe, had it made up and replaced this afternoon. I started the engine and while running put in new fluid at the reservoir.
Problem is, at idle or very low revs, the powersteering is almost not functioning. But as soon as you increase...
Hey, just a quick question..
Is it possible to retrofit the powersteering system of a later model 33 to a S2? If it is, any idea how much it would cost for parts, and how difficult a job it would be.
Thanks in advance.
