  1. Alfa MiTo
    Just had my MiTo serviced (2011 1.4 Multiair 135bhp TCT) including a coolant flush. Since then I noticed that the engine would come up to operating temperature (90°C), then dip slightly below for a short while, then go up to 90°C and stay there. Can someone with a petrol MiTo observe their...
  2. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Since I have my car it never behaved right. Facts: - new Marelli AFM since yesterday - car became even worse ( I am not sure if it was necessary - the new unit reads very different values than MES gives as target, just like the original BOSCH unit did, it reads ca. the double amount of air . In...

  4. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Ok, So I have had the Spider for a year now and a few weeks or so ago, occasionally when opening the roof, the rear deck would lift the first couple of centimetres and then not go further. It only did it in about 1 in 10 roof openings and I also discovered that if I put my finger in the gap and...

    I had a busy day and the cabbage appointed to act as my brain is confused by my road tax reminder (I know it’s not called that.) For six month tax, I can pay £140.25. For six months tax, one off payment, I can pay £133.88. Both will be a one off payment so why the discrepancy? (I know it’s...

    Hi, I know this topic has been written before. But I don't want like 3cm lowering. I need to change my suspension and springs because they are old and soft. Maybe I will only renew them, but some of my friend told me go for TI package, and maybe Eibach Anti-Roll Bar. And If you know the part...
  7. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi All, Took the plunge and purchased a stunning '06 Brera SV... it's a relatively high mileage number, but it looks great and it's been well cared for. One quite obvious issue is the fact that the car isn't sitting level. It's ever so slightly lower towards the front driver's side. Now, I can...
  8. Alfa Giulietta
    Hello all, got my G used. Amazing that it has just about all options bar Panroof, Radionav and..... Electric rear windows!! I guess in the UK the G doesn't come with non-electric windows, anyhow... Has anyone with wind down rear windows noticed that the window drops slightly on its own over...

  10. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi All, Anyone know why the 2.4 JTDm always runs slightly on boost even when off the accelerator pedal? When coasting I would think that it would be most efficient to run with the vanes opened fully to allow very low exhaust manifold pressure. There also seems not much reason to way to...
  11. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I have noticed something on my car recently. When I am coasting the boost gauge sits slightly up? It will be on the first little line on the gauge? Normally when driving very light throttle it will be on the very bottom. I don't know much about these engines yet so I am curious as to whether...
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    SOLVED ! 156 v6 slightly misfires on idle Hi guys. Recenlty i've encountered a problem with my v6. Fuel consumption went up, idle is kinda erratic and you can hear the engine slightly misfires.. This happens mostly when the car is hot, otherwise it pulls well and runs good. I guess it's...

    £9500 for a 2008 ti with 101k on the clock and some very questionable mods imho. On autotrader now, are these now appreciating or I assume seller is very optimistic. Best of luck tho!
  14. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all, the QTronic box on my Ti is starting to be audible, where it wasn't before. I noticed it when I hit the Sport button, particularly under throttle-off deceleration. It's quite a young box, only 68000 kms, and works fine for the moment. I'm wondering what the whine could be. Would a...
  15. South Africa
    Anyone know any reputable places in Gauteng (preferably Pretoria/Centurion/Midrand) that can fix a slightly buckled alloy rim?
  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey all! Topping up the screenwash today, I noticed the engine coolant was slightly lower than the MIN mark on the header tank - less than 0.5" below, and plenty of fluid in the tank still... Is this likely to be a problem? Could I top up with water? Or is it worth ordering a bottle of Paraflu...
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have a 58 plate GT Cloverleaf which I have owned for 2 years and 6 months...FSH and just 50k miles... It certainly looks nice on the outside, every time I wash it I don't regret buying it at all, the car looks stunning. Even when you sit inside, look at the full leather interior the car...
  18. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Guys, When I turn left slightly I get a high pitched squeal, which vanishes when I turn left even more. When I press the brakes it gets slightly louder and then vanishes too, its all coming from my passenger side wheel area. I am assuming its the brakes, because it gets louder and then...

    Guys, I have a genuine Alfa Romeo 145/146 fuel pump for sale brand new never been used. Sale is rather urgent as I need funds for a rifle safe. I will not be using this pump at all. Actually just bought it as a spare when I still had my 146 turbo. R1600 will include shipping to the buyer. I...
