  1. Rough value of my 2001 1.6 Lusso

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm not really wanting or needed to sell my 156, but it is a big car with a thirsty engine (compared to my Fiat powered Reliant) and as I've yet to actually take my driving test, not something I can use every day. May consider selling it though to buy another project car (and keep my insurance...

    Hey everyone, I have a 2001 156 TS that's had a couple of the same issues over the few years I've owned it.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi everyone! First post, and first time Alfa owner. I've recently purchased a 2010 Alfa Romeo 147 JTD and have had issues starting the car. The vehicle usually takes two to three attempts at starting, and once running, the vehicle idles quite roughly. Once on the road, the car drives...
  6. 156.net saved thread - Rough Guide to engine and gearbox removal - Dec 2009

    Alfa GTA
    As some of you might know, the 156.net forum is no more. We knew that the site was going down for a while (lack of traffic) so I took the opportunity to save some of my (hopefully) useful threads. This was a thread I originally posted December 2009 and is made up of photos from a number of...
  7. Help - battery icon & rough idle

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all. I'm hoping somebody can help. I took the brera (2.2) out of the garage for the first time in about 2 weeks and after 3 or 4 miles of driving, the battery icon started blinking on and off. I kept on driving, parked up at work and hoped it would just clear itself. The car started fine 8...

  9. Protect seat belt from rough edge

    Alfa Giulia
    Noticed the nasty scraping sound everytime I pull the seat belt. If you use finger to run over the plastic surround you will the sharp edge. I use some 400 grit sandpaper then follow by 1500 grit. Took 2 mins to fix and no more scraping. Highly recommended to protect the seat belt. Sent...

  13. Rough ride from rear end.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hey, so the rear end of my 159 is quite rough on the road, particularly the Left hand side. It's crashing/clunking over smallest imperfection on the road. The right hand side doesn't do it so much. The rear end feels very light on the road, like its loose or not entirely connected to the...

    Hello all My 1999 Spider 1.8 TS has a rough idle when starting warm. It starts ok when cold taking aprox 1 minute to reach the ideal rpm and then runs smooth. Only if I stop the car and turn it on again 5 or 10 minutes later it starts floating through the revs and drops to nearly stall. This...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello The problem is that the engine works rough on idle sometimes,at around 600-700RPM then suddenly jumps to 1300-1400RPM and shuts down. The second problem is that when I'm driving and I shift at around 4000RPM it often shuts down,RPM just goes to 0 and I have to start it again. Sometimes...
