    After failing to trace a boost leak via the usual suspects and to eliminate the turbo being at fault I ran a vacuum hose direct from the t-piece in the large vacuum hose just under the top inlet direct to the watergate, which confirmed movement with vacuum (to much vacuum) then to test running...

    Did a quick google this morning before filling up - got a capacity of 4.2L, admittedly from a US manual I found online. Recommended mix for winter was 50/50, or neat for -22 deg C. Thought I’d go somewhere in between, and dumped the whole 2.5L bottle in, but then there was no room left for...

    Evening all, My screen wash water has decided to pack up on me. The motor is still going, but no screen wash coming out. There's a little connector at the bottom of the pigtail tube coming down from the bonnet in the rear O/S corner of the engine bay, which I've disconnected and there's...

    can anybody tell me what the black bottle/reservoir is next to the battery in the rear of the GTV, also i have a black tube next to the battery that disappears through the boot but is connected to nothing, it has an end on it that looks like it should attach somewhere, some kind of drainage maybe?

    Dear Friends, This maybe trivial but I don't want to risk anything here. My brake master cylinder/reservoir is leaking at the seal on master vac side and I don't know how to fix it. I also bought a new master cylinder (since the genuine master cylinder is old already) and another option I...

    Need a bit of advice, I have a phase 1 twinny, I recently had my thermostat changed so checked my coolant level to give it a bit of top up and noticed that the rubber tube attached to the lid was hanging free. I take it this is a pressure overflow, it has a double hose clip on it, is this hose...
  15. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I have a 2009 159 1.9 JTDm. The power steering started to make a noise. In my non-Alfa cars, I have fixed this simply by checking the fluid level. I had green fuild in the reservoir and the level was between min and max. I don't know what fluid it was but it was green (GI/R, Synpower, something...

    Hi there 166 crew. Great news! My 166 very nearly passed its MOT yesterday!!! I think this is the closest it has got to a straight pass in the ten years I've owned it. :cool: Some finicky eurocrat reckons that the brake fluid level sensor needs to work :rolleyes: and since my local garage...
