  1. Steering Wheel shake when braking

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hello, My Cloverleaf has recently developed an issue where the steering wheel on occassions (not always) shakes and shudders when breaking. I normally don't feel anything at low speeds and some days I feel nothing wrong at higher speeds. But quite often if I am going over 40 Mph and I press the...

  3. 156, 1.9jtdm 16v - Pretty big shake when stopping the engine plus other error codes

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    06 plates, 82k miles I've replaced the timing belt(full kit with rollers and pretensioners) and drove it maybe 3 times and the clutch failed. One of the bearing metal ears that holds the fork (stupid design). So now the car has a new clutch( full kit with dual mass flywheel) and new slave...
  4. Why does my car shake at idle?

    Alfa MiTo
    This happens when the car is warm like after a short or long trip. Any idea what may be?
  5. Steering wheel shake when accelerating?

    Alfa Giulietta
    My QV was starting to shake quite badly after I changed to my summer wheels. Turned out one of the wheels had gone bad and wasn't completly round anymore... So I just changed the two front tires and most of the shakes has gone away! :-) How ever! The steering wheel still shakes from left to...
  6. Steering wheel shake when accelerating

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, This is more a general question as i'm sure it's not Giulietta specific, but i have an issue with fairly severe steering wheel shake at motorway speeds. It wobbles while at constant speeds, gets worse under acceleration, and disappears completely when i'm off the throttle. I've also...
  7. Shake, rattle and roll.....

    Alfa Giulietta
    Liking the way the new car drives - up to 600 miles already :) However, there is a rattle from the drivers door. Notice at country road speed but strangely disappears on the motorway speeds. My dilemma is whether to unleash the dealer which may well cause more rattles or to hoipe it...
  8. ST couldn't shake me

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Folks. I'm driving a 147 2 litre twinspark. Had some fun today on an A road with a Ford Focus ST. He couldn't shake me in 10 miles of fast curves and straights. I got past him on a motorway slip road in 3rd and then he pushed into the fast lane and risked his licence. I stayed with him and then...

  10. Car Shake?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I've recently noticed - on motorway journeys - that I'm getting some shake/wobble. I originally thought it was a wheel balancing issue, from the rear of the car. I had the rear wheels balanced and the problem's still there, and today I had the fronts wheel balanced and tracking checked. The...
  11. Steering wheel shake

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi. I have a 58 plate 1.9 with 85k 159 SW which is fab but there is a side to side shake when accelerating between 40 and 50 mph especially if it is uphill with slight left hand lock. If I cruise slowly through 40 to 50 it does not happen.... I have had a new bottom wishbone fitted to the near...
  12. Shake / vibration noise

    Alfa GTA
    Hi, noticed a new noise on the car recently, it's when you're off the throttle and the revs are falling, once it hits around 2k? (roughly) there is a brief quite loud vibration/shake. I need some upper arms replacing, and maybe an engine mount or two.. cambelt etc was done 3 years ago, so coming...
  13. Spider handling: dampers, shocks, scuttle and shake

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, does anyone know please - what the specification was for the 2008 3.2 V6 Q4 Spider shocks and dampers? Were they regarded as being any good or is there a better modification that is worth the investment? I do a lot of B and A road driving in the UK and France so I am looking for a good...

  15. my GTV story + a 2,000km shake down road trip

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Just thought to share and post about my GTV 3.0l as many here helped inspire, inform and educate me through various other posts. I bought my car a little over a year ago but haven't done much driving in it as I was getting ready to do a once over and getting it up to a standard I felt such a car...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    To begin with i had a 4 wheel alighnment done then a few months later i had the nsf driveshaft refurbished due to the car driving as if there was road kill on the tyres, this seemed to allieviate the issue, however i still felt a faint tremmer as though the wheels were driving on a rough...
  17. 156 20v wobble

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My cherished, even though I've only had it two months, 156 20v Sportwagon (2005) has a distinct wobble when driving between 18 & 20mph. It's been back to the dealer I bought it from but they couldn't establish anything wrong with it other than a CV joint which they replaced which didn't cure it...
  18. violent shake at cold startup

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey guys. Today as I started up my 156 1.6TS after being parked for a week, the engine started horribly rough. 3 to 4 cycles of the starter engine and it fired but ran as if on 3 cylinders with the whole car shaking violently. The engine sounded like an air cooled motorcycle 2 cylinder! I...

  20. roughhhh cold starting with smoke, random shake on warm idle....

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, ever since i've owned my alfa (bout 6 weeks) its been hard to start in the cold, as in first start of the day, i thought this was just down to diesel being a bit thick and the very cold weather we've had, combined with a dodgy glow plug or two....now its warmed up a bit, its still hard...
