  1. Engine revs query 1.4 TB

    Alfa Giulietta
    I am looking to buy a certian Giulietta 1.4tb 120hp 2014. I posted a query previously here on the forum about the rubbing noise in the engine. Now after giving it few more test drives I noticed other things and I'd like to ask other 1.4 TB owners to confirm if these things are normal and happen...

  3. Rising revs, something’s sticking?

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Since refitting the carbs after the new steering box I’ve had a problem with the revs rising when warm. I didn’t do anything to them, they were carefully removed, stored and refitted. At idle they are fine but when hot the revs really rise on there own. Drop the clutch and drive and they fall...
  4. Subtly erratic revs

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    As per previous discussion, ive been raising the revs on the jts to about 1500 when stationary for longer periods of traffic lights just turning red etc. This is because its possible the lean burn at idle of the jts may be contributing to additional carbon build up in the inlet...
  5. Loud Heater Tap Noise at High Revs

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I've posted before on this but was totally in the dark over the origin of the noise, as was everyone else. I tried plenty of things, to no avail, but I think I might now have the answer and as such, wondered if anyone else had encountered this problem. On my phase 1 GTV I have located a shrill...
  6. Intermittent Misfire - High Revs

    Alfa GTA
    I've been experiencing an intermittent misfire of sorts for the past few months now, but as the car has only just come back from its winter break I want to get it sorted. It only ever happens at high revs, just as I'm about to change gear at full chat between 1st-2nd or 2nd-3rd. It feels like...
  7. Brera 2.4 hunting for revs

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Afternoon all, so as the title suggests, my brera hunts for rpm. But only on a cold start for about 1-2 seconds, if the engine is started while still warm it does not hunt at all. anyone able to shed any light on if this is the start of a problem or just another one of those alfa things...
  8. Squealing noise coming from heater unit when the engine revs above 4500 RPM

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have a loud squealing noise that starts at 4500 rpm, but only when the temperature is set to cold on the heater. It sounds like a leaking vacuum hose and initially, I thought it was coming from the passenger air vent, but after dropping the glove box, I discovered that it was coming from the...
  9. power loss at 2000 revs

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Just had fuel pump regulator replaced as car felt like it was not getting fuel and code showed up regulator issue but car is still losing power at 2000 sometimes higher at 3000 it isnt as bad as engine management light doesn't come on now nor does it go into limp mode but under acceleration...
  10. ALFA 159 2.2 JTS P0016 Phase synchronisation (Intake / Revs)

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I bought the car 3 weeks ago. I have the check engine light on my dash. We pulled the codes and one of them was this. No strange noise to me, no power loss. I took the valve cover off to check the chain. I could push the chain down about 6mm, but it looks fine to me, i saw much worse. I tried to...
  11. Starts up then revs gradually drop until the engine stalls

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all! I've noticed a bit of a weird problem with my 2015 Giulietta Sprint (16.5k miles) - a couple of times now, upon starting the engine, the revs just won't remain stable and they will drop down after the car has started until it stalls. The first time this happened at the end of the day...
  12. Alfa 159 weird boost / revs??

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I was wondering if anyone else has suffered from this or knows what it might be? When I drive my 2.4 (210) hard it revs upto about 3500 revs and then flat spots. My swirl flaps are leaking a bit but this seems more than that? I have a hybrid turbo. Any ideas?? Thanks
  13. JTS engine under 2k revs

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Howdy, This is my first experience with a JTS engine, after only having TS's and Busso's previously, and was curious about its low-down performance, specifically at pull off. I just cannot get the feel for a smooth pull off in first gear. I read someone else expertly describe it ''as if the...
  14. 159 Sportwagon - Judder at low revs - 1400

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi Guys, In the last month or so, my 159 JTDm (2010) has started juddering when idle - if I bring it 1400rpm. Also judders when slowly accelerating through the lower gears - I'm guessing as it generally passes through 1400revs. From doing some research, I've found that it could be the flywheel...
  15. Revs increase quickly in 1st/2nd but doesn't accelerate. MCSF in 4th full throttle

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    First a little bit of history. It's a 81 kw 8v JTD 147, 2002. - 2 years ago, IC hose snapped - replaced with metal pipe For the past 8 months, car was throwing MCSF errors (sometimes they'd just appear and go, and sometimes they'd stick for a day or two) - Vacuum hoses melted three times...
  16. GT 1.9jtdm revs pulsating

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, Looking for some advice on my Alfa gt I recently got. When on idle the revs have a very small pulsating sensation it all so kicks in as when booting it at above the 2k revs and you can really feel it. It's seems to get better and some times go when the engine is warmed up (although seems...
  17. Bunch of troubles (Low Battery, MCSF, shaking on low revs)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Bongiorno alfisti! Here is my list of troubles and I beg for an advice (e-m-m-m...advices :ponder: ), gentlemen. Alfa GT 2.0 JTS Selespeed. 1. Battery/Alternator. Circumstances: - 3 months ago in a service I was told that battery has <40% of its capacity left - since that I had a 80k...
  18. 156 2.4JTDm Low revs Power/Torque loss

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, My 2.4jtdm 20V has lost quite a bit of power in low revs (1500-3000rpm). I have a rebuild turbo, egr cleaned, intake manifold cleaned, MAP cleaned, new oem MAF, turbo hoses are good. It is a pretty high mileage car (200.000miles) but the engine runs smoothly as ever, and it revs up...
  19. Revs to speed conversion

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Does anyone know the speed to revs conversion for a 1.9 jtdm? Thanks in advance
  20. 1.8ts GT hits a wall at 5k revs

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have had this issue for a few months now, but don't encounter it often as I am usually sitting in traffic. In 2nd gear the car basically stops accelerating at just under 5k revs. In third gear it happens at just over 5k revs. Its not accompanied by a mcsf. If i keep the foot down it will...
