refilling

  1. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi I have just replaced the power steering hose from pump to rack on my 159 Ti 2.4 after the short hose sprung a leak. All the oil drained out when doing this so how do I refill the system without damaging the pump? I filled the reservoir but it doesn’t seem to fill much of the system. Hope...

    Correct A/C refilling amount (460 g) Today in a pro-active maintenance mood. First I booked for an early MOT prolongation, no advisories :party: Then I asked to recharge the airconditioning as I reckoned that after 4 years of ownership some must have evaporated. No issues what-so-ever...
  3. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hopefully this will be tomorrows task as my winter V6 engine bay project closes in for completion. I've already been told ( Andy from memory ) that re-filling the bottle is straight forward as long as the bottom pipe has been kept upright, which it has. My real question is that in changing the...
  4. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Ok, hands up, this is the question of a cretin. Despite owning my 1750 GTV for nearly 5 years, I have never refilled the screen was bag/reservoir. I've always found it perfectly refilled after the service. Maybe I don't take it out enough in really bad weather. So... Can anyone help me? How...

    Can anyone tell me how to refill the screen wash tank on the Alfa GT. Is it really the hose that's hidden away and almost impossible to get to??? Do I need to use a funnel cos there's no way I can refill it straight from the bottle. :confused:::eek:
  6. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    i am hopelessy inept at anything under the bonnet so am asking a really simple question. when i look directly at my engine the liquid on the top left is at minimum - is this simply water or some sort of engine coolant that i need to buy?
  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hie guys can someone tell me how I can refill the gear box oil. The car had been parked coz of a gear lock problem now went to check it the gear box oil tank is empty. How can I refill it making sure I do not trap air (causing an air lock). Gear box kit does it come with the pump?:confused:

    I've had a 159 3.2 Q4 since March, and I've noticed it's almost impossible to refill the fuel tank to full. Usually the petrol pump cuts out at around 3/4 full, if I keep on trying I can get it to about 7/8 full. I think I've only managed to fill it completely full a couple of times. I don't do...
  9. Alfa 145 & 146
    On refilling my Boxer with cooling fluid, I noticed I had an air lock preventing the rad from filling. The engine had just heated to about 90oC when I saw it, and I had the heater matrix working seemingly Ok. What I found was that there are three hoses running into the rad; two from the engine...
  10. Alfa 145 & 146
    Does anyone know of any special procedure for refilling the cooling system of a 145 - bleed valves etc, or is it straightforward? :confused:
