  2. Reluctant to rev when cold

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    It's been like this for a few weeks now, but the poor thing is a total dog when cold. It gets very close to stalling when pulling away with any amount of throttle, and only really starts to get any better after a couple of minutes. I've tried disconnecting the MAF, but this only makes it worse...

  6. 147 TS reluctant cold start

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My 147 is reluctant to start after about an 8 hour stop. After that its start with no hesitation and runs smooth and strong. I have Fiatecuscan and noticed the outside air temp (MAF) always reading 30 deg - even when the real temp is 8 deg and motor cold. Over the next three days I unplugged...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have had problems starting my TS GTV over a period of time and thought it was the battery, so kept on charging it but seemed in the the morning that the battery was flat as when you turned the key nothing, so I just bumped it and it started easily and ran fine. After 8 hours at work it did...

  9. Reluctant Sale

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Reluctantly selling my 147 for a couple of reasons, 1) got a job in the city and it is cheaper for me to get the train to work, and 2) the wife is pregnant so we are getting rid of both the cars to get one cheaper more economical car. Here is the link to the Ebay add if anyone is interested...

  13. Reluctant decision

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Having only recently purchased my GTV i've reluctantly made the decision it has to go as it's not really practical for my everyday needs (made decision to buy with heart not head). Anyway it's a 98 TS with full service history and has recently had Cam belt, suspension bushes, brakes, exhaust and...
  14. Reluctant starter - 1.9 multi jet

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: My wife says our 1.9 multi jet is a reluctant starter in the morning; she waits until all the lights go out and then turns the key and it takes 6-10 tries before it fires up. Is this normal for a 1.9 or is there a potential problem looming looking to...

  16. Selespeed reluctant to Quick up-shift

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My Selespeed has become a little reluctant to do the quick up-shift on occasions. Especially when pressing on hard and wanting all the up-changes to be quick, one after the other :rolleyes: Anyone know what this is likely to or mechanical/hydraulic? Is it likely that I'll need the...
  17. Reluctant cold starter

    Alfa 145 & 146
    About two weeks ago, my 99 145 Cloverleaf began to have trouble starting from cold (e.g. after having been left over night). I've had it for almost five months, and up until then it had always started perfectly every time. Symptoms are that the engine turns over no problem, but won't fire...
