    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello, I have recently repaired AC system (changed compressor, condenser and drier, expansion valve) and filled with 460 g required type of gas and oil at AC garage. The high side pressure gets too high, 20 BAR and more. Low side stays on 2 BAR. System is cooling, outside temp is +15 C. The...
  2. Low tyre pressure warning

    Alfa Giulia
    This just popped up on the dash. I toggled to My Car and all the four tyres show the correct pressure level, but one of the values is yellowed. And the warning won't reset. Is there a way to manually make teh warning disappear?
  3. Tyre pressure monitor

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi Warning came up on dash relating to tyre pressure monitoring system. Checked pressure and the opposite one on same axle was 5psi less than other. Inflated it but dash warning still on. Does it correct itself or do I reset it somehow? Not much information in hand book.
  4. Tyre Pressure warning - right or wrong??

    Alfa Giulia
    Help please - this is very confusing for a new owner in a car that has done 700 miles... The tyre warning light came on and the display shows the four tyres showing 2.0 at the front and 2.2 at the rear. On the display, one of the rear tyres has the '2.2' illustrated in a yellow block. The other...

    Tuning & Upgrades
    Hi. I have readed that someone upgraded the Fuel Pressure Pump in front of the Rail on an Alfa 1,75 TBI to an more stronger one. Did someone know something about? I want to install it on the 200HP one, and not on 4C they did. OR do someone if we could mod the Giulia 2.0TBI one on the Old...
  8. Tyre pressure monitoring system

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Does anyone have the factory fitted tyre pressure monitoring system on their 159? I'm interested to know more about it and if it works like the modern ones I've seen by picking up the wheel speed and comparing it to preset values.

    Hello All, Can anyone please tell where the dpf pressure sensor is located? I have 159 Ti 1.9jtdm. I get the P2455 error code. I cleared it twice but comes back immdiately. My lower turbo hose poppoed off last week, and I fixed it as well as cleaning the egr valve but i have had the persistent...
  10. Selespeed weird pressure 38-47.9 bar

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey guys, So lately my Alfa started to believe that it's a kangaroo and was hopping like mad and sometimes not engaging first gear. Turned out to be EV0. Changed it - all good. :silly: Though in FES, I've noticed that my max pressure is 47.9 bar and the pump engages around 37-ish. I can get...
  11. Best/Accurate Tyre Pressure Gauge

    General Motoring Discussion
    Having been told, after the service, that the Giulietta's tyre pressures were out and that they had been reset to what I thought I had them set to I think my old cheapo gauge needs replacing. Can AOers suggest a suitable, reasonably accurate, tyre pressure gauge that won't break the bank and is...

  13. 2.0 JTDm oil pressure switch thread size??

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    …..anyone know the above? Its the pressure switch near the oil filter. Eper does not say and Id rather find out without removing it to check.....but I will if I have to. Looking to fit an oil pressure gauge and need to buy a T piece that goes there to do it. My guess would be 1/8 NPT.....but...
  14. Fuel Pressure Regulator Checking With Multiecuscan

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, I have a rough idling problem with my 159 1.9 jtdm. Today I checked its fuel pressure regulator with multiecuscan. And I recorded its video and upload it (its link below). as you see in the video, while idling, pressure regulator's graphic is like zigzag. I guess it must be near and also...
  15. Tyre Pressure Sensors & Valve Stems

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi All Mrs. V’s 2015 MiTo Junior has just been in for its first National Car Test (NCT) here in Ireland and it turns out the tyre valve stems on the two front wheels are leaking and need to be replaced. Not a biggie, but before I get them replaced, a question … does the MiTo have tyre pressure...
  16. Brake Pedal Pressure

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    In normal use the brakes on my GTV ( V6, 24V Ph2) work fine but if I need to do a big stop from speed the pedal goes very, very hard within second or so and the pedal pressure required is huge. I suspect the servo is either not holding vacuum or the vacuum draw to the servo is insufficient to...

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi all, Would anyone know why I have a intermittent low oil pressure warning on idle and then goes when revved, I've checked oil level which is fine clean and changed not long ago, could it be the sensor? Just wondered if anyone else has had the same problem. Thanks
  20. 166 2.4 JTD rail pressure drop...

    Tuning & Upgrades
    Hi, everybody Can a problem in the injector be the cause of the pressure drop in the rail, or duration times over 1300 are the maximum of the R65 fuel pump? The car is 166 2.4 JTD 136 hp with 119 injectors. The pressure drops significantly when the fuel temperature is above 55 degrees.
