    Just returned home from abroad to my beloved Alfa 156 JTS 2.0 and found myself having some issues. - Engine light comes up every 3rd start after deleting them, codes are P0161 and P1161. They have been there for some time now, not sure if it's related to the other issues. - The car hesitates...
  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, over the last month or so my 156 2.0 JTS has developed a squealing noise from the engine that seems intermittent. Usually, on a short run from cold, nothing. However after 30 mins running the engine starts to make a squealing noise when revved. Declutching and allowing revs to go to tick...
  3. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I've looked through lots of threads on here, and I think I'm going in the right direct.... So, cars not been driven for about 4years, in that time started, but not driven far. Cambelt fitted, driven back on trade plates, idled when warm, but didn't really want to rev past 3k to start. So, new...
  4. Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi, Driving home from my friend's house tonight, I've come across an issue that the previous owner of my 166 told me he'd had in the past but that it hadn't done it for a while before he parked it up for 5 years due to other issues that I've now resolved. The fuel injection system light has...
  5. Alfa Giulietta
    Yesterday while I was driving I noticed my car was revving up and down by itself as if an invisible foot was controlling the throttle when in neutral. It would idle at below 1000rpm then after a short time rev up to around 1500rmp and then drop back down to normal levels (below 1000rpm) but...

    Hi All, I'm desperate as I cannot figure out whats wrong with my 2002, 156 2.4 JTD 10V. Brief history: Last thursday went to work as usual and after a days work was eager to get home, got in the car turned key all lights on dash ok but no cranking noise ! shoot wasn't in the mood for a hide...
  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys could do with some ideas please! In neutral, the revs lethargically creap to a maximum of 3,500. Turn the engine off and back on again ....try again and its absolutely fine and will reach the red line at the usual pace. I gave the car a good tune up on the motorway yesterday and it...

    Greetings all, my dad's 156(1.8) twin sparks is revving unstable when idle. It can rev from nearly stall to 2000rpm up and down repeatedly. But sometimes its stable. What's ur guys suggestion? Thanks. Alex
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi Peeps Have a new problem I think. Car has started to rev high on hard boost before engine catches up and accelerates, any ideas? ?
  10. South Africa
    Hi gents A couple of days ago my 146 started over revving at start up and while driving. When the clutch is in it basically revs at 2000rpm and pretty much gets itself back up there once it's out and in gear (so it drives itself back up to 2000rpm) strangely, this all stops once the car hits...
  11. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all Had my car a couple of weeks and noticed that when the car is cold it likes to rev at slow speeds. This happens in second gear at slow speeds. As soon as I depress the clutch the engine will give out a flurry of revs. It's very weird and it also causes the car to move on its own like an...
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi Everyone, I hope you can help me with a problem i have got with my alfa. The throttle has started to stick when i change gear. It revs freely and no problem when in neutral but when the car is moving it starts to play up. It stared doing it about 2 weeks ago but then stopped only to come...
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have a '55' plate, 147 1.9 8v (115) and its started having a few problems lately, 1st problem is the self revving it seems to have started, car revs it's self up to around 3k in each gear apart from 5th (when clutch is depressed between changes) but also drives itself along in 3rd and 4th due...
  14. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Just got her back from MOT and now she idles high and then the revs start to rise to about 4k. Turn her off and then seems fine but after 5 mins the problems come back. Ive disconnected the battery last night to reset the ecu hope that works or is it something else? J.
  15. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all, Occasionally when I've been accelerating briskly in 1st, I've found the revs rising after I've dipped the clutch. I'd put this down to maybe being a bit slow coming off the throttle. Today it happened again, so decided to have a play. Down a gentle hill at 40mph I slipped it into...
  16. Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Hi all, I fired up my RSR today for the first time in around 2 months. When I started it up I expected it to be a bit tappy until the heads filled with oil but 5 mins later it was still tapping and getting worse so I shut it off. Checked the basics (oil, plug leads etc.) and all seemed fine...
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, Hoping you might be able to solve a mystery for me...my jtd16v runs happily in the dry, no issues at all...however in the rain then the engine at some point refuses to rev beyond about 3500 rpm. If i turn the engine off and back on again it resets briefly but rattles a touch at higher...
  18. Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi folks, Has anyone else out there experienced the following? I would appreciate any advice/help: Whilst pushing clutch down and changing up from 4th to 5th gear and accelerating normally my 2004 16V TS rev counter went to max 7000 then up to 8000 RPM immediately and stayed there. Car was...
  19. Alfa 164 & 166
    Last few days the 166 seems to drive on a lower gear on auto, given the same speed, the engine runs at a 1000 revs faster. i.e. at 80mph its running at 4000 rpm instead of 3000. Something is obviously not right, any ideas what?
  20. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello its me again, just a general query about the revs on my car. I have noticed sometimes at idle the revs can blip a bit higher and then drop back down. so its revving at 0.75 and then will go closer to 1 and then drop again. It has a lumpy idle which is a JTS thing (I actually like it lol)...
