  1. Remapped 159 2.4 clutch slip

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, I'm looking to buy a 159 and seen a 2.4 JTDm Ti that fits the bill - a lot of major work done recently, good paint etc. However, during a test drive I noticed that the clutch slips under load in 4th, 5th, 6th at around 2000rpm for a split second. It has had the EGR/DPF out and has been...

  3. 147 Clutch SLIP

    Tuning & Upgrades
    HI guys, Need some advise, my flywheel oil-seal is leaking and I am suspecting that some oil has made its way to the clutch. Would this possible? Cos when I rev the car, the RPM goes but the speedo is not going. Anybody experience this before? Mine is a 147 2 L Selespeed
  4. Clutch slip after replacement. URGENT HELP

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi Guys, My Giulietta (2.0 jtdm 140) has had it's clutch replaced after 63K Miles. Fair wear and tear, no problems there. The clutch never slipped in 6 years and was only replaced as the DMF was rattling and gear changes were becoming harder. Mechanic (a very reputable one) replaced DMF...
  5. Advice on Veloce Limited Slip Differential

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi Guys, Looking for some advice on kitting out a Veloce. I've been an Alfa enthusiast for many years (from a 33 to a 159TI, via a 156, a Spider, and a GT), but in a moment of weakness went for a Posche 911 4S four years ago. I've now just fallen deeply for the Giulia Veloce, and have decided...
  6. Clutch slip

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My 1.9 JTD is definitely starting to show signs of slipping clutch at 104k miles. Some questions:- Is this normal at this mileage Can the clutch be adjusted or is it a change job? Is changing a clutch a diy proposition? If I have to have it changed I suppose it would be sensible to do the DMF at...
  7. Clutch Peddle slip!!!

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi All I am on my second Giulietta, the first being an early Veloce and the second a recent QV Line. Both cars have been fitted with the shiny silver sports peddles with useless rubber grips. In both cars they have been absolutely horrendous when the soles of your shoes are damp. On a number...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi I have a 2.4 JTD 2001/2 and the aux belt shredded it's self and then threw the cam belt out. I was wondering if the cams have followers which fail thus saving the valves.
  11. Clutch slip

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I'm getting a brief bit of clutch slippage when putting my foot down in 4th or above, gear change is fine. The car's on 104k miles now, I've had it since 56k and have mostly done motorway miles. Does this sound like a worn clutch or could it be something else? I haven't been using it much lately...

  14. Random clutch slip 2-3000rpm

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I bought my GT JTD 2005 showing 49,000mls and found the clutch to be sound with regard to slippage but the action was heavy and dry feeling. I lubed the pedal pivot, the slave cylinder and the top and bottom bushes in the bell housing. This fixed the action, now light and smooth. I was feeling...

    Alfa MiTo

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all My 159 has done around 66K. I bought it at around 63K and and promptly submitted it for EGR/DPF delete plus remap. Couldn't be happier with the improvement, chuffed to bits!

  20. Clutch slip 1.9 jtdm

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Evening all, In the last few days I've experienced the dreaded clutch slip at full chat. In fairness I've been doing lots more miles lately (50 miles round trip daily) and have been driving quite lazily - the symptoms have occurred while going up hill in 6th at about 70mph and flooring it...
