  1. Slow radiator fan activation

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello everyone The last few weeks I've noticed my temperature gauge is climbing to 2 or 3 needle widths above 90 degrees before the fan activates. It seems to cut out just below 90 degrees after activation. Pretty sure the fan always used to come on at bang on 90 degrees and would take the...
  2. Air-Con slow leak. Where to start?!?!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, With the hot summer and pollen level at bonkers I decided to finally get my AirCon recharged. I’m normally ok with just the window open but thought after a couple of years with no cold AirCon I’ll get it done. I got it done and it held the cold air for a while. Anyway that lasted not...
  3. V6 slow speed cooling fan and relay

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi Can anyone point me in the direction of where to find the slow speed cooling fan relay (199) please ? I have a 2001 3.0 24v spider and seem to have lost both my slow speed fans. I'm guessing that if one resistor has gone I would only lose one slow speed fan - surely they wouldn't both call...
  4. Slow coolant leak

    Alfa Giulietta
    Was surprised to have to put in quite a lot of coolant today, but it's a while since I checked it. Then I saw a plastic housing at the front left of the engine and it looked wet. Dried it off and water slowly oozed back. Can anyone help?
  5. Slow coolant loss

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi, My GTV V6 has a slow coolant loss issue, I'm suspecting that there is some normal loss but just checking in to see if this normal with these engines? It's not losing it from the radiator as that has been changed twice since I've this problem, sometimes when I get out the car I can smell...
  6. 2012 Giulietta slow speed brake feel

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hello, I am hoping to get some thoughts on whats perhaps a unique issue. Recently I purchased a 2012 Giulietta that has the QV (or sports pack) add on from the dealer, as part of this it has the red Brembo brakes (same as whats on the QV?). I have been finding the brakes quite jerky at low...
  7. Newly purchased GTV V6 3.0 – slow at low revs?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I’ve had this car for a couple of mouths now and it’s great. I have a company car and use the GTV for weekends mainly. The only thing is that it appears to lack power at low revs. Can anyone let me know if this is normal as I have not driven another GTV before? I though there might be something...
  8. Am I Captain Slow?

    Alfa GTA
    I know it's dependent on the types of journey/roads etc, but I'm a little worried that I'm in danger of being landed with the crime of being SLOW IN CHARGE OF AN ALFA!!! Average mpg: 55.4 (I'm consistently > 55) Average "velocity": 38.4 :( And this is since the remap :eek: Maybe I need to...

  10. Slow GTV

    Introduce Yourself
    Hi i'm wondering if anyone can help. My hubby has just bought me a GTV 2.0TS (1998), but it seems to be having problems when pulling away. It is very sluggish and just doesn't really seem to want to go - drives fine once i've got it up to about 20? Does this normally happen, or can anyone tell...
  11. Rear SW Wiper on Go Slow

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Has anybody else with a Sportwagon or 147 had a rear wiper that really does not want to get out of bed in the morning? It works, but drags itself across the screen with great reluctance. Does a dismantle and clean up cure it or is it a new motor job..or are they all that bad :rolleyes: ? I'm...
  12. Maybe I should slow down

    General Alfa Discussion
    I had my windsceen replaced a few weeks back - now I've got a stonechip again. Washing the car today I noticed the headlight. Anyone know where I can get a replacement headlight glass? Paul (grrrrr)

    Announcements & Comments
    Don't know if it's just me, but the forum keeps going either very slow whilst loading or just stops working for me and won't let me in :( try again half an hour later and it works :confused: Other sites are working fine whilst i'm having the problem with this one.... any ideas?
  14. Is the board slow tonight?

    Announcements & Comments
    I'm having difficulty loading pages - they seem to take forever, indeed it's quicker going to my home page and then logging back in rather than using the User CP. Is it just me or are others having this problem?
  15. Slow 159

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Recently got my car back after a trip to the dealers. It's the first time in ages I've driven it with the standard map and it feels so pedestrian. This morning I nearly got dusted by some chav in a 1.9 diesel Astra and this afternoon a bloke in a very nice Ferrari 360 humiliated me just for the...

  17. Slow off the mark

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I am a new GTV owner (1997, 2.0TS) and my car seems to be a little slow off the mark. It isnt that i am a boy racer, but sometimes you just need to get away a but sharpish and i seem to lack the power even with my foot buried to the floor. This is mostly a problem on hill starts- unless i rev...
  18. Very slow board.

    Announcements & Comments
    I'm no computer buff as some of you already know, so can someone please tell me why it goes so slow sometimes that it stalls and comes up with error. Imagine this scenario, we are under attack from nuclear ballistic missiles, our commanders retaliate and press the button only to be told this...
