  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello to all! I want to make my petrol fuel gauge read LPG tank gauge so what I need is if someone knows the resistance of the fule sender unit in the tank of AR 1.8? And maybe a wiring diagram of it? I tried to find if this is directly connected to the fuel gauge or through ECU but without...
  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All, I don't think I am in the clear regarding my clutch yet. So I am on my 2nd new clutch after the 1st one failed within 70 miles and this one has now done 250 miles and no sign of failure yet. Compared to new clutch number 1, number 2 seems to drag slightly when engaging 1st gear and...
  3. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hello I have diagnosed the above using multiscan previously on my 159tbi so I changed the upper lambda for a new bosch sensor. After several weeks I have the same message. Very frustrated to say the least. Multiscan showed a few weird parameters under the above fault code: engine temp -35.*...
  4. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I was wondering if there is any way, not overly complicated to increase the "resistance" in the steeringwheel in an alfa 156 '01. I recently changed from an older saloon, and I'm not sure if there usually is a difference between saloons and sportswagons, but this one seems far too light and lose...
  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    In the past few hours I have read every single thread about airbags, cheating the system with resistors and there is still no definitive and clear information what is the correct value for 156 side airbags (not passenger presence sensor)! These are values I found here: 470 ohm, 4.7 ohm, 4.7...
  6. Alfa Giulietta
    HI, Do you know if it is possible to adjust the hardness of the steering wheel in mode "D" on the Giu 2014? I guess that may be done via a software + an ELM327 but it's not sure. I hope that there is an intermediate setting between the actual "D" (too soft) and "N" (too hard) mode. I ask this...
  7. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    OK so hoping someone can help me diagnose this problem.. finally i was able to read the error code that was brining up my airbag warning light. it is B100E, really struggled to find info about this on the net. the text associated with the error is: Driver's side airbag resistance Resistance...
  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Its been 5 days since I last drove my car so was planning to take it for a ride yesterday. I went in, inserted the keys and then plan to take it out of gear into neutral.But before I can do it I notice there was little/no resistance on the clutch pedal when it you push down but it does comes...

    Leaning on Portugal, reminding them of their bailout...... BRUSSELS (Reuters) -- Senior members of the German government have warned EU member states that German automakers could scale back or scrap production plans in their countries unless they support weakened carbon emissions rules...
  10. Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    I was changing my radiator coolant today and decided to fit a new rad sender and water temp sensor in the inlet manifold. Fired her up and the temp sensor in the inlet manifold wasn't working:rant::rant: Rad sender fine (79c-88c model). So had to drain all the coolant and fit the old sensor...

    Hi all. I have recently purchased a 2.0 JTS 03 plate and its a great drive Soon after purchasing the 'Motor Control Failure - Go to dealer' warning appeared. Very shocked as it appeared the day after purchase after looking under the cover I noticed water in the coil housing. I wiped it all...
  12. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all I'm having problems getting the bonnet/hood of my GTV to open. Firstly, there's no resistance at all on the bonnet release leaver under the dash (and no I'm not using the steering wheel adjustment leaver!). So I slipped a screw driver under the front of the bonnet and pushed up on the...

    Hello folks As you know the motor tax might be going up soon. :rant: Naturally no one wants that. So a kind soul has created a facebook page where we can discuss what we can do to stop this. Aanmelden | Facebook I think we should join up and discuss what kind of statements and protests we...
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have been having some trouble with cold starts lately. I will be replacing the crank sensor as soon as new one arrives but in the mean time i have been trying my glow plugs. I bought some replacement ones, (cheap naff fleabay, dont start..!) and they have a resistance of 1.5/1.6 Ohms this...
  15. Alfa 145 & 146
    Sorry if this has been answered before, but couldnt find it. Im trying to test for a spark. Disconnected fuel pump, connected up only one ignition coil pack to a spark plug and holding spark plug against the engine block. There doesnt seem to be any spark during cranking. Am I doing...
  16. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi guys! After looking thru the archives, thought I'd ask for a more current opinion than what I could find, My Phase 3 GTV JTS seems to have developed quite a stiff gear stick, there's quite a bit of resistance in moving between gears, particularly the lower ones. Been this way for a couple of...
  17. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Since getting rid of the injector light and power delay fiddling with potentiometer connector... The car now has a definate lack of pull in the engine (particularly lower down the range) compared to before. There also 'seems' to be less resistance on the accelerator pedal, feels a bit spongy...
  18. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi folks, I was driving home from work today and all of a sudden, mid-roundabout, fourth gear (that's how slow and steady I was going) gave me some right aggro. Real heavy resistance. Didn't really take much notice, thought it was shoddy driving. Next roundabout 1st - lovely, 2nd - very...
  19. Alfa 145 & 146
    Does anybody have to hnad the resistance values i should expect on the NTC when engine is hot?? Ive come to the conclusion that mine is on its way out :( and would like to check before i replace :)
  20. General Alfa Discussion
    1) Would any kind soul have the offical CDa value for the 156 GTA? (or even any 156 if it came to it :)) CDa is the aeodynamic drag and is the CD value (drag coefficient) times the frontal area of the car. If anybody knew the frontal area of a GTA (or 156) that would also do. I have the CD...
