    Hello! I have an Alfa 2.5, 166, but I posted here because I see more activity, and I need a fast response. I changed the sparks myself, and when I started the car, all was good until I pressed the acceleration. The car is not revving and I don't know why. I let her idling and a beautiful...
  4. Low rev rumble - Veloce

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi everyone, I've done about 3000miles in my Veloce - loved every second of it! Had a bit of a strange sound coming from the engine since I picked the car up nearly 2 months ago now. Seems to happen when the engine is on or under 1500rpm. It's like a low rumble which eventually goes away after...

  9. Trouble starting and cuts out when rev

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've only been an alfa owner for a few months now and it is really testing me lol. The car was running fine (only prob was sticky windows) and I hit a bump and knocked the exhaust into the sump and dumped its oil, my own fault. Repaired the sump and built it back together and it was running...

    Alfa 164 & 166
    It's happened to me three times now. First time, after getting close to 7k RPM she just conked out and wouldn't re-start. Had the RAC out who said it was the fuel pump. Changed fuel pump and all good, although the injector light has been on ever since. Second time (same stretch of road) after...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, having spent much time driving my 159 around recently (this makes me happy) ive noticed in carparks and sometimes when pulling away from standstill, the car is somewhat graunchy and irregular. The car has only ever been fueled with shell v-power under my ownership, so fairly sure...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Evening folks! My mate bought my old 156 off me after I experienced the dreaded "bonnet flip"!!! It's now been fully repaired and is ready for its MOT. However when he went to run it.... It now won't rev! :rolleyes: It'll tick over ok but refuses to rev! Where's the best place to start...
  15. 156 Q-System Rev Counter Required.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All, I've diagnosed a faulty rev counter on my 156 Q-System (battery drain!) so now need a replacement. Does anyone have one for sale, or know where I can source one at a reasonable price? Alternatively, just the PCB will do! (Will have to be for the Q-System V6 though) I'm also wondering if...

    Just been in my car, running well. The rev counter works but seems to read much lower than the engine sound. I pushed the car and I can't get it about 3k rpm. Not the end of the world, ideas pls? Thank you.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Its only happened once, but a couple of days ago it wouldn't go over about 1200 rpm. No warning lights, just no guts in it. I stopped, turned off the engine and re-started and all back to normal, although I have detected a hint of a delay when I press the accelerator peddle. I had a similar...
  18. Rev counter

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Ok folks further to a previous post, rev counter stopped working, I thought this could have been due to jump starting it , but it may just be coincidence? The speedo, lights , everything else all still works as should, but after jumping it I've noticed it ain't working? It was ok 2 days ago? I'm...
