    13 years ago I needed an automatic car due to a knee injury. I bought an Autotrader magazine (remember them?), decided I couldn't be bothered looking through it & just bought the first car on page one.

    Hello, Wanted to know if it is possible to add automatic transmission to the 2.0L V6 turbo model, just by taking the whole front end (electronics and engine harness + electronics, as they are basically the same) and splicing them onto the V6 turbo. Better yet: pull out the 3.0L V6, put the...

    I have read conflicting reports on what this fault code relates to. Some say blocked cat, others that it relates to a fault with the electronics controlling the auto gearbox. I can't detect any obvious issues with the car, it pulls well, auto gear change seems smooth. Has anyone else come across...

    My "new" 166 has: 1. the gearbox light on; and 2. MultiECI Scan can't connect to the gearbox computer. but the gearbox seems to work fine in both normal auto and tiptronic mode. Where should I start?

    Would like to ask the forum for help here as I'm thinking of purchasing a low miler that I've already went and viewed but before I fully commit myself I'd like to know what I should be aware of before going in. I've got a 156GTA and 147SS already so am clued up with Alfa ownership. However had a...

    God knows the Sportronic gearbox has fewer gears than we'd like, but mine is reluctant even to use all the ratios it has available - under certain circumstances. What I'm finding is that (in Normal mode), following a period of heavy acceleration (eg an overtaking manoeuvre) the box will hold...

    Hi, I have been advised by my garage that I need to replace the petrol tank on my 166. Another garage has tried to repair the leak previously without success. Can anyone advise me on the best place to find a second hand tank? Thanks
