    Parked it up on Monday after collecting it. Went out in it last night and it took three attempts to start and then smelt like a BBQ for a while and smoked at every junction. Seemed to pull alright and didn't notice it on the way back. Tomorrow will be a read up on here of what how to clean...

    Hello! I have 156 1.8 TS 1998 and a week ago when I wanted to change the radiator it started to act weird, the most annoying was the rough idle, from 500 to 1500 rpm. Changed the radiator, everything went fine but still rough idle. The same thing happened when I swapped the engine and a friend...

    Hi all I've been reading the forums for a little while, but decided to finally create an account and post a question in an effort to curb my swearing. I've owned a 2003 3-door 147 2.0 TS Selespeed for about 1,500km now. Bought it off an Alfa mechanic, with a full service history. Since then...

  5. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Advice please... Changed the inlet and exhaust solenoids this week - car has been smoother, accelerated better, engine quieter... WAS very happy.. Suddenly today after a short drive, I noticed the car is idling very roughly at about 500rpm, constantly wants to stall, the whole motor shakes while...
  6. Alfa 145 & 146
    Hi guys, My 146ti has a rough idle after a warm start (most of the times)80% and feels like its going to stall, revs drop to 600 and back up and then fluctuates and nose dives some times. I've tried a few IAC valves and its the same. Maf is okay, new plugs, lambda is "alive", radiator, stat...
  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Cold Idle very erratic, settles down (but not perfect) once warmed up. Sluggish acceleration (as though the spark is retarded) in 1st until revs come up, then scoots under hard acceleration, but sometimes jerky under moderate acceleration - through the gears. Toddles along reasonably smoothly at...

    Hi My 159 8V 1.9JTD starts fine. But the start is very rough and the engine/car is shaking for a moment. If I check some videos on youtube about a 159 start, it sounds the same but much louder. I came across some post about the flywheel. But I don't think it's the fly wheel. Since there are no...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all I took my 156 veloce 2.0l JTS for an MOT this morning which it passed, but the garage said that they had to push it off their ramp as it would not build up enough revs following the emission test. I also noticed that the temp gauge was reading about 110 degrees, this despite the temp is...
  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Got a friend with a 147 with a 2lite twin spark, Personally can't get to see him for a week or so. He had rough idle and running but seems to clear after about 2500 revs, he has changed both lambdas and spark plugs and I think coil packs as well but will need to check. Fault codes he got...
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Drove to work as normal today car was running sweet (GT V6), in fact I was thinking I prefer driving it more than my V8 XKR. This soon came back to haunt me as the dreaded MCSF flashed up and kept flashing, then the engine started running really lumpy, misfiring and sounding terrible with not...
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    About 5 weeks ago, i had what can only be described as the motoring week from hell! Firstly my wishbones/droplinks/bushes were replaced (again) on the wed, so £300...but wear and tear, fair enough i suppose (well wear & tear on a Alfa anyway), but then on the Saturday i filled my JTDm with a...
  13. Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi All My Alfa 164 V6 12 v had been laid up for a while although it was regularly started and systems checked. I started it up on Saturday to start driving and all was well apart from the low petrol warning light being lit. On approaching the petrol station it started running rough which I...
  14. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all, My 2011 SW has started spluttering when it performs a DPF regen - a couple of times now it has had a really rough, jumpy idle that feels at any moment it's ready to stall. I'm probably going to show my age a bit here when I say this, but it reminds me of the bad old days if you ran your...
  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, I have a really rough idling JTS. So bad its non-drivable. RPM is going from 500 to 1500 in neutral without touching throttle. I uploaded a video to make it easier to explain - https://youtu.be/YpvWGddwwkQ Only error codes were P0725 - Engine speed signal and P0715 in the...
  16. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hey folks, I've a 2000 Spider. Normally, it's quite smooth. But sometimes whenever I push in the clutch or shift to neutral, the revs drop to almost zero. It sputters a few times with the rpms wavering between 0 and 1k and then smooths out. It's only actually stalled out on me once while doing...
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Dear fellow Alfa lovers, A year ago I bought a 156 1.8TS Facelift, ran great but needed some minor work, which included the cambelt and variator. I´ve completed all the maintenance, and the car runs great! I´m very happy with it :thumbup: Buuut, (yes here it comes) a month or two before i...
  18. Alfa GTA
    Hi guys, I got a small problem with my 147 GTA.:irked: When i go out for a drive and i park it for a while it won't start immediately, i have to start it twice to get the engine running. The engine also runs rough, little bit fluctuating idle and a shake (maybe misfire) every 6-10 seconds. What...
  19. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    As the title suggests my V6 is running rough. PHASE 2 (Fly by wire TB ) The symptoms are, very flat when cold like its not running on choke for the older generation ! Very erratic idle (its always been a bit poor but never seemed to affect the overall running) It feels like it wants to kangaroo...
  20. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hello all! I have problems with my fantastic Alfa 159 :) It 2005, 1,9JTDM, 110kw. Its having quite rough idle - revs go up and down 750 - 900 rmp at idle. Some times more, some times less. Once it stalled and after 15 min. of trying, it started and its running again since then. Anyway, I...
