    Hello. As thread title suggests, is this a easy job?

I think my engine is misfiring so am thinking about replacing all 4 coil packs and also 4 new...
  4. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, I started my first service on my 147 (2004, 1.6L) and was shocked to find out the price of a set of spark plugs from the alfa dealer - has to be a cheaper way, right? Currently in the car are NGK plugs, four of PMR7A and four of BKR6EKPA. I can easily get my hands on BOSCH plugs...

    Hi All A week after buying my 156 and she was suffering from low power / misfire when accelerating from traffic lights etc until she got over 2500 rpm, then took off. Not always, and usually when warm. I read about water in the sparkplug wells. Well the engine was nice and shiny when I bought...

    Hi guys What spec plugs should one run in an old NORD 2L? NGK Bxxxx, etc. In my case it would be running cams and somewhat higher compression with Weber 40's. Not sure about how good the plugs still are and I have a misfire on the race car. Maybe race plugs and "normal" over the midas counter...

  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    hi all, here's an odd(ish) question for you all. Do we have to use some type of special spark plugs specific to Alfa's? I have just been charged a fortune for them (although I am currently in Gibraltar so that could be the problem). regards, Mark
  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    can you use NGK CR7EKC and NGK BKUR6ETB for the 2.0 TS ? I see only the 1.6 TS in the application list.
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I bought a set of new spark plugs which were proper alfa ones but stupidly forgot to check the gaps before putting them in. Does anyone know if the gaps are pre-set? Sorry for this stupid post but it might save me having to take all the plugs out again :)
