  1. 'Hesitant response on narrow accelerator setting ..

    Alfa Giulia
    All - car is a brand new Veloce 280. At very narrow accelerator positions and therefore low revs, particularly when pulling away from stationary - the response can feel a bit hesitant,slightly 'juddery' as if there is a bit of fuel starvation... Has anyone else experienced this or have any...
  2. No Throttle Response JTDM 2.0 170

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi Apologies if this has been posted before but I did look and couldn't find anything. I've had the car for a couple of months now. All has been fine apart from the odd time when pulling away from a standstill with revs idling/very low, only to find the car extremely slow to pull away, to the...

  5. Throttle response in D, whats your delay?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, My 1.4 MA is custom remapped and I noticed the car would sometimes in 6th gear jerk, like it was cutting power and revving real fast. And in lower gears it would sometimes cut of when hitting high RPM's, like power cutoff. I suspected the knock sensor registering detonation and...

    Alfa MiTo
    About a month ago while washing the wifes Mito (2009) I noticed the paint was bubbling around the boot badge.

    Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    Sorry for my bad English. I have the following problem. GT 1.916v jtd. During driving sometimes there is no reaction on the accelerator pedal. Even full pressed motor goes to idle. After pressing clutch and pumping with the accellerator pedal the motor start to react as normal and all is OK...
  12. Dunlop Sport Fast Response - Utterly Amazing!!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT

  14. Brera 2.2 JTS SV - poor throttle response & occasional hesitation.

    Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    Hi all. I've just bought one of these and find that the throttle response is quite poor. For example, when pulling away in 1st from a standstill, it's difficult to bring the revs up gradually - nothing seems to happen at first, an then there is a step-change from idle, to @ 1500 rpm, or...
  15. Brand New 159 Ti 2.0L - lethargic throttle response

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi. I've just moved from a 1.9 GT to a brand new 2.0L 159Ti Sportwagon. It's done c2,000 miles so far and the poor throttle response low down is driving me nuts. The Gt was so much better. Perhaps I need to be patient and let the engine free up - but is this a common issue with the 2.0L...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT

  17. Inconsistent throttle response

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all, I have a issue with my V6 Cup. The throttle response does not seem consistent and revs seem restricted. When driving in say 2nd gear and change up the power sometimes seems to turn on and the revs fly up - I am sure it is not my dodgy foot response. Also revs seem quite choked in first...
  18. E10 Compatability - Alfa's response

    Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    Hi All After the recent publicity and stories about E10 (as standard unleaded will become) being incompatible with older engines and older than current Alfa's not being on the list - here is what Alfa have said to me this evening. (I asked) The 2.0 JTS is NOT compatible with E10, seek out...

  20. turbo boost response advice needed

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    OK this is going to require some carefull explanation! Car: 159 2.4 jtdm plus egr/dpf removal and remap - the NJS/ALFATUNE one! Question is: Does the turbo boost guage show a measured or computed value? I only ask because the guage seems to respond very rapidly, even at low speed yet the...
