  1. QH thermostat and temp sender problems 2.0 ts

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Thought this thread may be of interest and I hope to get some experienced comments by return. I acquired another TS GTV and set about sorting some running problems. I had a cold running problem which I fixed by changing the maf and repairing a hidden air intake pipe split. But MultiEcuScan...
  2. 1.9 16V JTD Temperature Sender.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I’m still not completely convinced by the cooling on my 156 Sportwagon 1.9 16V JTD. If I let the engine just idle and build up temperature the gauge inside the car goes up past 90 and 110, and I chicken out before the fans switch on. Yet driving the car around it appears to behave quite well...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello to all! I want to make my petrol fuel gauge read LPG tank gauge so what I need is if someone knows the resistance of the fule sender unit in the tank of AR 1.8? And maybe a wiring diagram of it? I tried to find if this is directly connected to the fuel gauge or through ECU but without...

  5. Alfa 75 TS oil pressure gauge sender

    Alfa 75, RZ, SZ
    Hi all, How easy/hard is it to replace the oil pressure gauge sender on an Alfa 75 2.0 Twin Spark. The sender unit it tucked up at the back-left of the engine and looks completely inaccessible to me. I've been meaning to change it for years as the gauge doesn't work and it's very annoying! Any...
  6. Motor control system failure - rpm sender issue?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, Just one week into ownership and 1st issue... Yesterday, I drove my car for a bit with no problems. When I got to drive it again a bit later on, once I turned the engine on it showed a motor Control system failure warning on the dash. I took the car to an Alfa specialist and they told me it...
  7. Right Front ABS sender - Scarce?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My local Indi could not find supplier for the right front ABS sender for one of my V6 Spiders. They eventually ordered one from a main dealer, who had to order one from Italy! Hopefully will arrive next week on time for a trip to Cornwall for a friends wedding. I looked at the usual Alfa parts...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    As the question suggests, where is the temperature sender that operates the temperature gauge on a 156 1.8 Twin Spark (CF3)? Is it the sender that screws into the top of the thermostat? Just wondering...
  10. 3.2 Oil temp / pressure sender definitive answer.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    3.2 Oil temp / level sender definitive answer. Some of you may remember that I pulled the 3.2 out of my Brera recently to replace the transfer box and sort out the sub frame. Because of the cost of the oil temperature sender (£350) I decided not to replace it whilst the engine was out. Well...
  11. Alfa 156 2.5 Fuel tank sender pump

    South Africa
    I cannot find the correct name for this thing, a plastic unit ontop of the 156 petrol tank. My dad sold his silver 156 2.5 V6 and this thing started to leak petrol/fumes. As part of the sale he needs to replace this, the stealers want R2993. Should he buy it new or search the scrapyards?
  12. External temp sender replacement

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    The external temperature sender on my Brera has gone up the wall and is reading sub zero all the time. I have sourced a new sender on eBay for £10. Has anybody actually swapped out one of these sensors and if so, can you give me some pointers on stripping the mirror to gain access? Preferably...

  14. Running rough after temp sender change

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi folks, I had a low water temp reading, and as I'd replaced the thermostat a few years back, I suspected the sensor. So - I fitted a new temp sensor, but the engine runs really rough. When its cold, its almost useable, but once the air entering the engine is warmer, its horrendous. I fitted...

  16. Fuel sender unit...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Question for you all. I drove my car to my destination this morning and on the way the orange fuel light came on, no big deal as I knew this to be correct. When I got back in to make the return journey the fuel gauge registered about 1/3 of a tank which would be great, but was obviously...
