    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello All I'm driving a 2006 159 1.9 JTD. I've only owned the car (my first diesel) for just over a month and it's my first Alfa.

  4. 156 GTA sportwagon brake shudder

    Alfa GTA
    Hi everyone, I was doing some spirited driving a few months ago and upon stomping on the brakes from very high speeds the car attempted to stop but after a quick second or two just faded into oblivion. I had to get off and onto the brakes again in order for the car to stop. A couple of days...

  6. 2.4 JTD shudder

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Have noticed the engine seems to shudder on start up like its moving about too much, the garage pointed it out last visit and suspected a weak engine mounting - when the engine is held around 900 rpm it feels very uneven almost as if its missing slightly, other than this it runs perfectly. I...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, how are you all??? My 20v JTDm has developed a shudder through the steering wheel when accelerating - especially in gears 2,3 and 4. I'm not sure whether I should be charging the drive shafts or maybe steering rack (I hope to the heavens it's not!!!!) as the culprit?! What else can...

  12. 147 - Shudder on takeoff....

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey, when i take off from first a little hard, i find that the steering wheel vibrates and the wheels feel like they shudder - maybe more like they don't grip. I kind of feel like there is no grip to get going then traction kicks in and the car takes off. The vibration in the steering wheel is...

    Hi guys and girls, I have a 159 with the 2.4 diesel engine (its the 210 bhp if that makes any difference) which is driving me crazy and I'm hoping some clever person out there may be able to shed some light on. Periodically the engine will have a little shudder at low revs (between 1.5 and 2k...
  14. Brake shudder

    South Africa
    Gents, besides warped disc, what else could cause brake shudder? I have some serious shudder, but only sometimes, I'm inclined to point at the master cylinder. Could that cause a pulsating? Like ABS almost...

    Hi, First post for me, I have just bought a 2005 Alfa 156 and I got it with bad wiper blades because they shuddered across the windscreen, so I replaced with new wiper blades and thought it fixed the issue, but the wipers continued to shudder. So I replaced the wipers again with the modern...
