  6. TIP 166 slow to accelerate - cure

    Alfa 164 & 166
    My 166 2.0TS (175k KM) had developed a problem where when I was trying to accelerate it would sometime hesitate and be unable to take revs until suddenly it would notice that I was pressing the gas-pedal and take off like a rocket (a small rocket it being only a 2.0TS). I was sure it was the...
  7. slow 147?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm a relative newbie to the alfa scene (6 weeks) this being my first alfa. My 147 is 14 months old with 13,500 on the clock - so there shouldn't be anything wrong with it? But today coming home from East Kilbride I got blown away at various traffic lights by 1) a 4x4 (Mitsubuishi something) 2)...

    My speedo is showing about 25% too slow, although as far as I can tell the miles recorded seam to be accurate. Does anyone know why? Is it likely to be a bad earth of is the speedo itself finished? The car is a 1990 series 2. TIA
  11. 146 slow traffic problem

    Alfa 145 & 146
    I have a 146 1.6 "R" reg 1997 that does not like slow moving traffic. When in town and engine revs are about 1500/1800 the engine has what I loosely describe as "kangaroo petrol". That is, when you start to accelerate slowly the engine falters and at times, almost stalls momentarily. Hard...
  12. Knocking on slow turning

    Alfa 145 & 146
    I've notice a slight clunk when tuning the wheels sharp at low speed or jiggling the wheel to and fro i.e parking. Is this normal and what could be causing it, as it only sounds from the near side/ passenger wheel??

    I thought the title might attract a few people. Anyway, sorry to make a new thread out of this, as I am sure I have seen threads like this around (in particular a bit lower down the page, but I didn't want to hijack the thread). I have a couple of questions you might be able to help me with...
