    I have just collected a replacement plastic inlet manifold so that I can have it de-swirled and cleaned ready to do a quick swap for mine. It has had the flaps removed from the shafts but the shafts are still in place so can I just leave it as is or do I need to remove the shafts and replace...

    Watching Police! Interceptors! Cops! With Cameras! Stop! the other night, two goons were spotted lobbing litter from their car. A few nee-noor, nee-noors later, and they were h’apprehended, me lud. After the usual tussle over whether the car was insured or not - a matter upon which the driver...

    Today I checked the timing on my Busso 3.0. The results looked pretty bad - interested to know what others think. It's in a recently-acquired GTV that has not run for several years; the guy I bought it from was in the trade and mentioned his mechanic had changed the cambelt at some point. The...

    Hi Everyone. As you might imagine, this and old car and I bought it with just two keys – one blue [opens the car, does not start it] and one built in into the fob [starts the card, can't open doors with it]. I want to make this car great again [detailwise] so I got this kit part number is...
  5. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    So, I’ve been looking for a low mileage, well-cared for example of a 3.0 V6.....and there seems to be a fairly standard set of mods which are carried out on a number of GTVs The Q2, sports exhaust, 330mm Brembos, equal length downpipes etc all make perfect sense, but I would like to ask the...

    Anyone know if the dark turbines on the Veloce in the video in this link are one of the standard options, or do you think that they’ve been resprayed..?

    Fellow Alfa owners and mechanic friends, I have my Veloce booked in for its (first) 9K service on the 8th November which is when its convenient for me with my work schedule. It now looks like I am going to be hitting 10K by the time I get to the service date, can anyone forsee any issues with...
  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello,I need to have the car serviced,and instead of getting the mechanic to buy the parts,I am thinking of getting the parts myself and paying just for labour. I went on shop4parts and they sell Selenia and syntium oils. The price difference is major,but I don't really drive more than 4-5000...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello all! I have a question about the front suspension for an Alfa 147 1.6 TS: Went for a check-up to my mechanic,and turns out that the nearside upper wishbone has a minor play in it. He said there's nothing to worry,but I want to change it. My question is, would it be better to buy an...

Im looking to get an alfa 159 2.0jtdm with the f40 gearbox and i have been going to see one for a few weeks now but the seller keeps putting me off and had finally admitted that the car has a problem. He says it got a new clutch and is perfect...

    hi all Having bought a 2010 2.0 diesel SW as a runabout recently - i decided to swap the slightly manky cloth interior for a good cream leather one from a 2007 lusso. Swapped out the back seats first , and set about refitting the new ones - . Working in reverse order to dismantling I fitted...

    Hello fellow alfa lovers (and haters :D) :) I disabled egr by editing ecu software by egr hysteresis, so egr is now not in use. But car still slow and crappy at 1,2 gear at revs lower then 3000rpm. So i opened EGR map and made change that ecu always gets max air quantity so it wont count on...

    Not sure if this in the correct section, but mods please move if deemed necessary. It will certainly be read more there though. Here goes. The insurance policy on my 335i BMW runs out on October the 1st. I am planning on selling the car this Saturday (14th). The question is do I let the...
  14. Alfa Giulietta
    I am going to ask a question that I am sure has an obvious answer. The amber light (circle with arros pointing in) showing where the gear indicator arrows appear. What does it mean? Can not find it in owners manuals anywhere. At first I thought it was an ice warning light. Realised it is not...
  15. Alfa Stelvio
    Hi, Was wondering, do you have to return to the dealer you purchased the car from for a warranty issue. Problem I have is the dealer I got the car from is quite a way away from me and is about 3.5 hours of travelling on public transport if I leave the car overnight... also when I tried to ask...

  17. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Need a bit of advice, I am going to be changing the rocker cover gasket on my twin spark ph1. I found a good thread on here with instructions and pictures and so all good on that front. My question relates to use of gasket sealant: - what's the recommended one that I can get hold of easily? -...
  18. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Today my car has been checked for fault codes, which it apparently had. Most interestingly it shows these two: - P1131 Lambda signal out of limit low - P1132 Lambda signal invalid I haven't physically checked the sensor, but I think I'm looking at a replacement here. Might be an explanation for...

    The 2.0 TS engine I have ready to replace the damaged one has been sitting in the garage corner for some years now. Should not I consider replacing the head gasket as a matter of course? What degradation would the gaskets have suffered over time? Should I consider replacing anything else with...
