  1. Brera gearbox slight selection issue?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Not that long ago I replaced the gearbox oil in my 2.4 Brera to the 75W90 spec rather than the recommended 85. It did make a difference but again could just be down to the fact it was fresh oil? I’ve noticed when cold or when it’s been standing a day or so that 1st gear is a little stiff to...
  2. 2.0 jtdm slight stutter

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I’ve had a slight stutter for a few months. The problem only occurs when the engine is getting up to temperature and when on a light but constant throttle. It’s kind of like the engine is holding back and releasing and holding back again in quick succession but not like a misfire. Typically this...
  3. 2.2jts rough idle and slight hesitation when cold

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I need advice. My 2.2jts sometimes when I try to start it when the engine is still cold has a rough idle(like it changes to everything between 2000-800, it goes up and down and up and down...) plus sometimes it does not want to start for the first try only for the second. When the car does this...
  4. Giulia veloce - slight hesitation when launching...

    Alfa Giulia
    Hey All, This is my first post, even though I lurked around quite a while :-) So here is the question - I am interested in buying a Giulia Veloce. I rented one this weekend, to get a real-life test drive and I absolutely loved it, with just one small exception. When I accelerate from a...
  5. Slight scuffing/grinding from brakes

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All, Hoping someone may be able to offer some insight. I have a relatively recently purchased second hand GT and I've recently noticed a slight scuffing/grinding noise when braking. It's difficult to tell exactly where it's coming from but sounds more like it's coming from the rear than the...
  6. slight problem

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, 1st time owning a alfa. Its a 156 2002 jtd 150bhp. Had a new turbo a month ago. Now a few days after it being fitted it seems to lose power. If i floor it in 3rd and go to 4th the power will die until i go into 5th and back into 4th then the power is restored. Any advice would be...

  8. Slight metallic rattle when cold

    Alfa MiTo
    I recently took delivery of a brand new QV and have noticed when the engine is started from cold there is slight metallic rattle that disappears after a few minutes, or almost straight away if you drive away from the off. It almost sounds like a heat shield rattling, quite light, coming from the...
  9. New car, new to alfa - loving it, found problems including slight front damage!!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've had my GT for a month or so now. I love it! But the joy of buying a new car has been tarnished by finding that the car has had a scrape on the front. Long story short, I didn't notice this when buying the car, and am kicking myself for that. It looks like the previous owner, when...
  10. Slight misfire/hesitation on part/half/full throttle

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi, My GTV has had a throttle issue since I had it, only the last 10% of throttle left was always sticky, so you would have to push it through the floor for the throttle to move that last bit to 100% WIDE OPEN. It never bothered me as I knew exactly how to handle it, I didn't/don't know why...
  11. Slight fogging on rear lights. - GT

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Can you just use T cut or similar to polish them up again? I don't want to damage them if there is a film on them or some such!
  12. Epic road noise (Maybe slight exaggeration)

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi Guys, I've always noticed a decent amount of road noise in my 159 but lately it's gotten worse. I think it is the tyres even though there is decent tread left. The car is a Ti with eibach 30mm springs which has given me 2.5 degrees camber. The car has most of its weight running on the...
  13. Slight rear brake squeal

    Alfa Giulietta
    With just 200 miles up, I'm getting a slight squeal when coming to a stop. It's only momentary but....is this anything to be concerned about?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys test drove the q2 yesterday and was impressed by the road handling and pick up however i noticed a slight vibration through the steering wheel at idle (i assumed normal for a diesel) but also a vibration through the steering wheel when accelerating hard. I didnt feel anything when...
  15. Slight issue

    Alfa Giulietta
    So I picked up my beautiful new G last Wednesday. I love her very much, but I have come across a slight issue. I live in a street where parking is at a premium, and I've had to park her where I can't see her a few times. So when this happens I keep an eye out for when a space becomes available...
  16. M32 Gearbox slight whine

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Guys as above really......My 159 1.9 TI (73100 miles) has developed a whine from the gearbox ( so im told ) The guy said its my "differential bearings" within my gearbox. My question is, would changing / topping the oil up reduce the noise???? Ive had the car coming up 18 months and the...

The changes are fine and the cars done 34,000miles any ideas what it could be ? Nothing major I hope :confused: any help...
  18. Slight vibration and humming noise when letting go of the gas pedal "1750 TBI"

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Slight vibration and humming noise when letting go of the gas pedal "1750 TBI" I have had the Spider MY 2011 since it was new. The car now has approx 13.000 km and I've been driving it since June 2012. What I have noticed is that sometimes when I accelerate hard (for example from 2.000 to...
  19. Slight hickup when cracking throttle open

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Fellow Alfisti! My 2.0 TS -97 (ph1, M2.10.4 ECU) tends to show a small hiccup when going from no throttle to just putting my foot on the pedal. Typically this is noticeable in slow traffic and around 2000 RPM. When just pressing the pedal I feel a small jerk, and somewhat oscillation after...
  20. Slight engine knocking. 2.0lt TS

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I am hearing a slight engine knocking under medium to high load. It's deffinatley getting stronger or I am just focusing on it more. I was wondering if there is anything else on this engine that can cause this big end bearing like knocking sound, other than the bearings. If it is a bearing then...
