  1. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My TS Spider passed it's MOT this week with no advisories (y) But.. It has also started making a whining/squealing noise on acceleration. This happens in any gear when the engine is under load and at or above 3K rpm. The aux belt and tensioner have been changed and cambelt checked. The air...
  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    156 2003 1.8ts On humid wet days the 156 has started with the scream of a banshee and continues for about 10 minutes then disappears.... I take it it's the belt.....is there any or an easy fix for this ? Am not overly worried...car drives great but it's a tad embarrassing.
  3. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have a loud squealing noise that starts at 4500 rpm, but only when the temperature is set to cold on the heater. It sounds like a leaking vacuum hose and initially, I thought it was coming from the passenger air vent, but after dropping the glove box, I discovered that it was coming from the...
  4. Alfa GTA
    Hi, the 147 GTA I've just got developed a squeal which gets louder and higher pitched as the revs increase, the sound also changes as you move the steering wheel, I took it in to my local Alfa Romeo dealer who changed the alternator belt and pulley (£322) but it's still there, any suggestions...
  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, over the last month or so my 156 2.0 JTS has developed a squealing noise from the engine that seems intermittent. Usually, on a short run from cold, nothing. However after 30 mins running the engine starts to make a squealing noise when revved. Declutching and allowing revs to go to tick...

    Apparently Porsche is getting a bit miffed at owners who do nothing but whine and complain about how noisy the brakes are, so it felt the need to re-educate them. Porsche Brake Squeal Is Apparently A Safety Feature, Not A Defect : Tech : Tech Times

    Do you have the 330mm v6 brakes as fitted to 147/156 GTA, or maybe 3.2 Gtv, 3.2 Gt or have you upgraded to these brakes? Do your brakes squeal? Simple question really, I am trying to gauge how common it is for these brakes to squeak, I suspect most do squeal but please submit your honest answer...
  8. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    So I had to replace the pads on my V6 GTV. I ordered some Delphi pads which I then fitted. On my second or third journey I noticed a nasty rubbing sound which was caused by the shim on one of the pads sliding forward and rubbing on the disc. I contacted Autosessive who kindly send me...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, sorry to spam everyone... The second problem I am having with my 147 Q2 is that when you go up hills it makes a noise like a squealing belt. Usually only when you are using the torque and not when you just rev it which makes me think it isn't the aux belt. I have been told by alfatechnico...
  10. Alfa Giulietta
    Finally, after 4 months, my G has become a proper Alfa. Yup, a niggling fault! Completely at random, the rear brakes start to make a constant squeal. It can be at any speed as well. I know it's the brakes because a pull up on the handbrake, as well as using the brake pedal, makes it immediately...
  11. Alfa Giulietta
    I have a 2010 1.4MA (Manual, current mileage 26K) which I purchased back in August 2013, every now again when I pull way from a standing start I hear a high pitched squeal, noise appears on the biting point. Since the weather has got colder it has been happening almost every day, same issues...
  12. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    As above, what could this be? It is really annoying that evey time it gets a little cold it sounds like a belt is squealing like a little piggy in the engine! I've had the cold start update from Autolusso but the car now seems to start a bit lumpy as well. Any ideas?
  13. Alfa 145 & 146
    Hi All, I still have my Alfa 146 which has been a great car. This week I have noticed that that in the early morning (when cold) I can hear a squealing noise if the car is pushed beyond 2500rpm in gear or neutral. However once the car is warmed up the noise disappears. This could take 10mins...
  14. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Near disaster last night. On my way up the M6 I noticed the temperature creeping up slowly, it got up to 80 and then stayed there. This was odd because it always runs at the semp temp about 70. Thinking nothing too much of it I continued onto the m62, temp the same. When I pulled onto the M57...
  15. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    squealing noise and leak gtv v6 - YouTube Hopefully that should work
  16. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Having discovered my radiator had a hole in which I've not replaced as yet, I decided to see where the hole was. I filled up the coolant tank and started the engine and waited for it to get hot. I noticed after a while there was no heating in the car so I turned the engine off to check the...
  17. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Since i've had it, my 159 2.4 Ti has made a kind of 'distant police siren' noise from the turbo. It's remapped etc. and the noise hasn't got any louder so i though all was ok. But now, most times when i first pull away, i get a squealing noise like a slipping belt... but having read a bit...
  18. Alfa MiTo
    I drove down to the south coast at the weekend and on arrival and noticed a squealing sound audible inside the car. Popped the bonnet and nothing obvious other than this noise which sounded like a belt slipping. It is only audible at idle as soon as revs are applied it stops. At this point I...
  19. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Squealed as soon as I pulled up. Cannot believe it, what else could I try?
  20. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Occasionally getting a squealing noise under partial throttle on the drivers side and I am struggling to diagnose it. As soon as I come off the throttle it disappears. At first I thought aux belts but the problem doesn't occur while statically revving the engine. At WOT I also can't hear the...
