    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm asking this on this forum as it is the most read on Alfa owner and i'm more likely to get a response quickly.

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Gents, I ordered a replacement ECU for a GTV 3.2 litre for £600. When I fitted the ECU it would not start the engine cos the ECU would not earth the fuel pump relay. After phone calls the company that sold it to me were adamant that the problem was with my car and not the ECU. So I took...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, Bought my 159 1.9 JTDm in early December from an independent dealer, and it came with a 6 month warranty. 'Have engine checked' light came on last week so I got my local mechanic to diagnose what the problem was. Turns out I need a new EGR valve, which is not covered by the warranty...
