  1. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    On requesting the full specs for my Brera 2.2 Prodrive S, I received the following info in an email this afternoon. Unfortunately, I'm struggling to make sense of some of the details, and wondered if anyone here would know more. Thank you for contacting Alfa Romeo In reference to your enquiry...

    These Alfa’s have a great sense of humour. Come out of work it’s barely 6C and the usual autumnal English day. Pop the key wait for the glow plug light off press the brake and start her up. Immediately the message “Excessive Radiator Fluid Temperature" pops up and then a couple of seconds later...

  4. Alfa GTA
    Hi everyone, after being away from Alfas for 6 years (you dont want to know what I have driven!) I think it is now time to come back. I have had both a 147 GTA and a GT. Loved them both. So now I am deciding what to do next? I loved my 147GTA and regret selling it, only the Integrale I owned...

    Guys, This is related to another thread (Selespeed hesitation and dead) but thought I'd ask if anyone can diagnose selespeed issues based on code details - prize for simple do this, change this, replace this or ignore this succinct guidance. P1747 Failed Component Code: Switch Lever 2 Fault...
  6. Introduce Yourself
    Hi All, having just bought my second Alfa, this time a 156 JTDm 20v Sportwagon, I am beginning to understand why my brother recommended buying and Alfa only if you have an unfailing sense of humour. Within two days, when buying diesel, the fuel flap didn't just open remotely but flew off...

    After the last couple of really harsh winters, I'm considering it. I was under the impression that it was about 8 c?

  10. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    After 12+ months of my 159 jtdm experience I am still happy to own an Alfa. I have started looking for the replacement as mine is up to 79,600 miles and increasing. Beginning to think that a newer, lower mileage 159/Brera would make sense now. Then I saw this: 2009 Alfa Romeo 159 2200 cc 2.2...
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I wonder if anyone can help with an intermittent problem on my low mileage 06 GT? The drivers window works fine, always going down when the door is open and up when closed, the passenger window on the other hand doesnt always either drop down when the door is open or close when the door is...
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, Hoping someone can help me make sense of fault code readings from ABS system of Alfa 156 2.0 1999. Used Unidiag kwp71 software, connected pin 7 to 1 in obd interface and used 'auto' setting as recommended and set ECU setting to 0x20. First fault code reading I got was: Read diagnostic...

    I feel I have a new sense of appreciation for my Mi.to since Monday. Due to repairs to the car (minor) but still needed, I had to reinsure my old 2006 corsa. Since I haven't driven it since June I feel I had got used to the feel of the Mi.To. I couldn't get out of the corsa quicker, since...

    My GTV6 82' 26k The Project which i think I'm affectionatly calling 'the beastie' is an 82' GTV6, 26k on the clock and dry stored since around 92', the usual jacking points to do along with some recommisioning but honestly 'the beastie' has been a great find. A few pics of the 6's arrival are...

    Ok, Here's a question for you ... You need performance (and I mean need) you need space (tent, 2 people luggage etc). you generally don't need them at same time - and you do over 20K a year. For various reasons I find myself with a fiat panda 100Hp and a porsche cayman and...
  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, My V6 has been playing up so I decided it was time to replace the MAF, I ordered one and went about replacing it today, I finally got the old one out, put the new one in (secondhand) and the car ran worse! So I put my old one back in and now the car won't start, well sometimes but then...

    Gotta admit my interest in cars is pretty new, but I have been thinking about a few other things the last 36 years, and I really can´t figure out how Alfa Romeo thinks. Mira: Giugiaro makes a fantastic facelift (156), and a few year later Alfa releases "The New Look" (159, Brera, Spider)...

    I discovered a main beam bulb had blown on my 145 last night so I stopped off and got a replacement thinking hubby could do it for me but I actually did it myself this afternoon :D :D I know this may seem small and trivial to some people but I've never changed a car bulb before and its great...
