smoke

  1. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I have had a 57 plate 1.9 159 Sportwagon for about 3 months now and it is giving me some headaches. Almost every day on my commute to or from work it will suddenly begin to put a crazy amount of white smoke out of the back. So much smoke that you cannot see out of the back window (think volcano...

    Pulled up at a road junction about a mile after setting off and was surrounded by a cloud. Didn't smell anything. Carried on for a few seconds. Saw the odd puff for the next few minutes. It's a 1.6 diesel. Any ideas?
  4. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Noticed today that when I sit at the lights there's a faint blue smoke coming from under the bonnet and wheel arches. More on the drivers side. When I pull away, it looks like I'm screeching away with big plomos of blue smoke from the arch. Smells like burning oil but cannot see any oil leaks...

    Hi All, It's been a bit of a day so far... Was heading to Cornwall this morning and only managed to get a few miles before a very strong smell and quite a lot of smoke started coming from the offside wheel arch area but definitely starting from the engine bay. I pulled into the services and...

    My is 159 1.9 JTDM 150 is Grey Smoking. Stinks of diesel I know this is very common with these Alfas. I sometimes get a little in the morning, first start up of the day. But when it's wormed up, not all the time, but most, it smokes like a trooper on tick over or low revs. Things i done. EGR -...

    Help! 159 jtdm 2.4 smoke on startup - injector issue? Hi Does anyone know why my 159TI blows a cloud of whitish smoke on startup. Only happens after being stopped for at least an hour. Doesn’t blow any when running otherwise. It’s been suggested it might be one leaking injector? Hope you can...

    Good day, Need some help with figuring out why my engine is blowing smoke. I bought the car a couple of months ago and I've noticed that it occasionally blows smoke from the engine. The smoke is white/gray and smells like a tree is burning under the hood (probably oil, but not sure). It...

    Hi All - i need to pass my emissions test very soon and i'm extremely worried about the black smoke from my GT. I haven't had the chance to drive the car much these last few months maybe once a weekend and i think this is contributing, but can you please give me advice HOW to fix this, even some...

    With truly bad manners my first post is asking for help, sorry. I have recently purchased a Mito 1.4tb 155bhp which i great...but... After costing down a hill for a decent length of time, when I get back on the throttle at the bottom I get a lovely plume of smoke behind me. Other than that car...
  12. Alfa Giulia
    My lovely Alfa was towed back to dealers on Saturday. On Friday night the engine died outside the house after I’d returned home, and there was a strange noise under the hood. It didn’t sound like a fan or turbo. When I got the ignition off, the sound continued and it started to smoke badly at...

    Good evening, After 4 1/2 months and 12000 miles she is progressing at a more leisurely pace, and has some exhaust problems at higher revs. For a month or so I have noticed some hesitation on start up, today we hit a traffic jam and there was a funny rattling sound and then what was clearly...
  14. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi I've had my gtv on the road for 2 months, so has only been driven during the cold weather, and I'm only doing short journeys of 10 to 15 minutes, or 3 to 6 miles. White gases come from the exhaust a lot of the time. I've never experienced this with a car before and have read the usual...

    Been on holiday for 2 weeks and my son’s Alfa wanted some air in one of the tyres, so the lazy urchin asked me to do it while he got ready to go to his part time job. Started the engine and smoke billowed from the side air vents and the engine spluttered to a clunky stop....... Mild panic as...

    Hey all, this is my first post, I've been a lurker for a long time and have found the information on here invaluable, thank you. But I'm at my wit's end with my precious 159... Video of my struggling Alfa: As you can see, the idle is rough, and there's lots of lovely smoke. It sounded as if...

    Mito, Lusso 1.4 I had an 'insufficient oil pressure' warning last week whilst on the way to work. I temporarily ignored it until I was home that evening, and when I went to check under the bonnet I realised that the oil cap was off (and the entire engine bay soaked in oil). I had presumed this...
