  5. Squeeling noise when hitting 3000rpm

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Well the ol alfa has started a new thing for me...A squeeling noise when she gets above 3000rpm and only if the foot is hard down, if you take her up there gently no squeel! She is a 16v 1.9 JTD sportwagon...I'm assuming its to do with the boost, possibly the relief valve. Just wondering if...
  6. Alfa 147 1.9 JTD Squeeling !

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi there, My 147 has developed a horrible squeeling from the drivers side rear wheel. We are thinking the handbrake might be sticking on, but only on this side. Took it out the other day, and the brake drum on the drivers rear was so hot water turned to steam, other side it was fine. Is this...
  7. Front drivers side wheel squeeling like a banshee...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Okay, now my problem is not indifferent to this: Basically whenever the car is moving (1mph to 60+mph) the front drivers side wheel squeels. And squeels and squeels. It doesn't do it when cold, but after...

  9. 156 Squeeling noise

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I have a 2003 156 2.4JTD with 90k on the clock. Recently I have had to have a new clutch and whilst at the specialist he noticed a high pitch squeel kind of like a aux squeel but only on pull off. It only happened once whilst he was there. I took it home and the squeel seems to be there...
  10. Why is my 147 squeeling at me?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Passed MOT today, no real issues but recently she has taken to sqeeling at me. It mainly happens when cornering but can go on a bit (no its not the misses), it stops when I press the brake peddle but then starts again. Funny thing is, it doesn't always do it, but when it does I'm cringing below...

    Alfa MiTo
    whenever i put down my windows they enjoy an almighty screech unless it has been pouring with rain....then you only get a wee squeek. Is this just a characteristic of the mindow on my mito? cheers
  12. Brakes squeeling savagely...amongst other things

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, bought my GTA just over a month ago. It had been standing for quite a while by the looks of it and feel of it, but it was quite a good price (I think!). I had the cambelt and waterpump done and also had to have a new oil cooler, and new radiator. I also think I need a new top mount, but it...
  13. Squeeling Brake Syndrome...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Can anyone answer this just for my own information more than anything... I have the squeelling brake syndrome on my 147 at the moment but here's the part I'm struggling to wrap my head around... I can be driving along, brakes squeeling quite nicely, as expected a dab of handbrake just to try...
  14. 147 MJET 1.9 Squeeling !

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I get a shrill squeaking noise for the front end, it goes off when I apply the brakes and when I turn left / right... I have had it in 2 garages, the first could not find anything and the second decided it must be the brakes, they removed/cleaned then but within 40 miles it was back... Any...
  15. Squeeling noise from cambelt area

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi everyone, I recently had my 147 (1.6 03 plate) in for its 72,000 mile service and had the cambelt changed (including tensioners and idlers). Since then there has been a noticeable high pitched squeeling noise from the cambelt area when I first start the engine in a morning. :eek: The noise...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, First time poster, just really hoping someone can help me and give me some advice! About a month ago a bit of squeeling started coming from the engine, nothing too severe, so I ignored it, hoping it would go away, but alas thats never the case. Then last week the engine warning light...
  17. Squeeling sound when I turn.

    Alfa 145 & 146
    :confused:Hello everyone, I happen to have this ridiculous squeeling sound everytime I turn the steering to my left. That's right, it only happens when I turn left. I'll be sending my car to the shop next week for his regular change of timing belt, water pump, variator & MAF, it'll be good if I...
  18. Squeeling Aux belt - I'm brassed off

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My aux belt started squeeling a while ago and has got slowly worse. Seemed to me it was the spring loaded tensioner pulley to blame. I have now replaced it and the excentric centre tensioner pulley. Still squeels like a stuck pig :cry: 2 choices. It's either the belt or the water pump...
  19. Squeeling Noise When Turning Right !!!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All, I have recently noticed that my 156 is making a squeeling noise when turning right - which is not so noticeable when driving in the wet. It sounds like the brakes rubbing, and only does it on the front left wheel. New discs and pads were fitted around 5000 miles ago with no problems at...
