    Hi all! Taken me a year to sign up to this forum for some reason but I've had my 159 Ti since last October and I love it! I do however have a persisent issue that doesn't stop me from driving it at all but does stop me from enjoying it when pushing on. The car is a 159 Ti 2.4JTDM with an...

    So basically, when driving on the motorway a vibration and humming pulses above 60mph. I can only describe it as like driving over the rumble strip for 1.5 seconds and then off for 1.5 seconds and then on again - son on so forth. I just had it serviced and the bearings apparently are fine...

    HI Just picked up my 2010 159 sw lusso 55k on clock today, ive noticed when i just hold my foot on the clutch pedal i can feel a bit of vibration or pulsating through it, i know on other cars it can be a sign of a worn clutch, is this normal? cheers guys :paranoid:

    Ok, as posted a while ago I'm suffering from the pulsing headlight and dash display issue. The belt looks ok, couldn't figure out how to get it off though. Multimeter across the battery with the engine running gives an unsteady readout ranging from 12Vish up to 14Vish. Based on this, I'm...

    Hello. I recently bought a second hand Alfa 159, 2,4 JTDm Q-tronic. It was kinda cheap, because it had issues with DPF and EGR, but overal it was a good buy - had a service history and only 175 km on the clock. My budget was kinda tight, so I went for it. First thing had the filters and oil...

    Just had oil and filter done on my 2000 GTV 3.0 and when I accelerate the car occasionally behaves as if i'm pulsing the accelerator pedal :( The injector light does not come on at all and I was under the impression these cars were cable rather than fly by wire. ANyone had this symptom before...

    Is it normal to feel slight road surface pulsations through the pedals on the G? I can feel it while accelerating and breaking. It is definitely related to the road surface, because it varies when I go from one type of pavement to the next. Could it be bad shock absorbers?

    When driving in 6th gear, my jtdm 16v 159 won't go faster than about 190 km p/h. I have a kind of pulsing turbo. I have 'the pedal to the metal', so WOT. No chip, EGR and DPF still in place. I'm thinking of a f*cked up manifold, full of black sh*t :rant: What do you think...

    Hi guys I have a feeling I know that this might turn out to be expensive, but I am hoping someone will ease my fears and tell me that its something cheap and small... But coming home tonight from work on a main A-road in my 159 2.4 (210), coming down the slip road, I was behind a slow car. The...

    Hi all My dash lights and all lights are pulsing. Sometimes it comes up battery low charge. The alternator is charging at about 13.5 to 14.5 volts. Any ideas would be welcome

    Hi all, I tried to start my 156 2.5 this morning, and it won't turn over. It does 1 starter 'revolution' then stops. If I hold the key in the fully 'on' position for about 1/2 a second longer, I hear a really fast 'put'put'put'put, like a quiet machine gun, and all the lights on the dash flash...

    Hi Guys, I recently upgraded from a 156 TS to a 99 156 V6 Q-System and the power steering seems to be a bit erratic. The level of assistance comes and goes when changing gear and giving it more or less throttle. It ends up adding or taking away small amounts of lock in a little pulse. It is...

    in tick over you get a pulsing whirring from near (in!?) the cambelt area. this gets faster, but harder to hear as you get faster/louder... any ideas? The guy selling says "they all do that mate" and i sort of believe him, but I thought i would get on here to check.

    Hi guys, I just completed the much recommended V6 induction mod and K&N replacement filter on my 1999 156 2.0TS. Do I need to reset the ECU to get the full effect, if so how do I do this? Also, does anyone have a problem with the power failing intermittently, particularly just after...
