  1. Squeaking coming from front whilst driving slowly??

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi All Recently I noticed that there is a loud squeak whilst driving slowly, eg. Pulling away or parking up. It's not the brakes as it happens when Im not touching them. It's only just happened and I've look about on the net and can't seem to find anything concrete answers behind the...

    Alfa MiTo
    Hey all, I have a problem with my MiTO. I recently changed the brake pads and discs and I noticed something very odd.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, new to the forum so if I've done this wrong my apologies! I've had my 07 Brera for nearly a year now and last week my first real issue occurred, I was coasting in gear in some slow moving traffic, the traffic eased and I accelerated, it was almost like a pop that I heard as I did this. The...
  4. Voltage slowly dropping

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I'm a new 147 owner and have an odd issue. I get a battery low message while driving and the car will eventually shut down. If I put a tester onto my battery while idling it goes right up to 14v from 12v while off. However it will gradually drop by about 0.01v every 5 seconds The...

  6. Slowly turning my 147 into a 166... :)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So, following the sale of our evil 159, I started to miss the nice touches it had. Like folding mirrors. So I search and wonder, look and (drunkenly) hatch a plan. Cue the A-team music.... So I now have a 166 folding mirror mounted on the near side with a wiring diagram of what wire does...
  7. Coolant level dropping slowly

    Alfa MiTo
    I have noticed since having the car serviced last month that the coolant level has dropped from the maximum level just after the service to just above the minimum level today. I had the water pump replaced during the service and nothing else was mentioned (ie. potential leaks around the area)...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi Guys, Getting there slowly with my nightmare 2.4JTD 20v that I bought from a dodgy dealer. I'm determined to get it sorted, trouble is it now has to be sorted as cheaply as possible as it looks like I'm being made redundant very soon :cry: I'm getting overboost problems again with P0236 and...
  9. Alfa GT loosing coolant slowly

    South Africa
    2005 Alfa GT 3.2. The water bottle consistently drops to below the minimum mark. I will fill it up to maximum and around 400 - 500 km later same thing. I would guess it loses around 200 ml ? Anyway no leaks under car even if parked for two weeks, no sign of water in oil and visa versa. And the...
  10. Coolant levels slowly dropping

    Alfa MiTo

  11. slowly losing the faith...147 this time.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    After spending a shed load on the 159 over the last two months (new rear spring, rear pads, front disks+pads,alternator, battery, belts etc,etc) now the 147 has thrown a paddy and decided that silent suspension is not for italian cars. Yet again, it creakss and groans, clonks like the subframe...
