  1. Changing Steer Wheel

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have not had my Spider long (Phase 1 or as someone recently said 'it is more of a phase 1.5'??) and she is on 130k miles, so the steering wheel has had a fair bit of use and I was fortunate enough to get a replacement from a low milage 03 GTV. Sooo I want to change it but I am worried about...

    Hiya, Over the past few weeks I have experienced some problems with my 156. I have owned it over the last 8 months and there were absolutely no preblems at all, but I am worried now. 1. :confused:With the engine cold the rev sometimes stuck at about 2000 rpm!?

    Has anyone got any original ALFA sales blurb or other official ALFA documents that mention 4wheel steer on the GTV?
  4. GTV 4 wheel steer?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Is the "passive 4 wheel steer" i have heard of re GTV's a fact?, how does it actually work?, i havent studied the rear suspension geometry closely i admit but at first glance i can see anti dive features to not 4 wheel steer.:confused:.
  5. Torque Steer - Is it an issue??

    Alfa GTA
    I only ask because I have read a few times recently, on here and elsewhere, that the (std) GTA suffers from torque steer. From what I can remember of when mine was standard, I just dont recall torque steer being an issue at all really, even now in its 'modified' state, I dont really find any...

    Alfa MiTo
    Hey guys, Just wanted to ask if anyone had any experience with dreadful torque steer when putting your foot down in D? Basically I was over taking someone on a country road, so I stuck it into 2nd and floored it but the amount of torque steer was crazy and shared me sh**less :lol: Anyone else...

  8. 156 manual torque steer

    Alfa GTA
    I was loaned a 156 GTA manual last week. My car is a Selespeed and this was the first time I have ever driven a manual version. God Almighty, the torque steer is enough to hurl you into the hedgerows every time you give the car some wellie in low gears ! My old 164 suffered pretty badly from...
  9. GTV Torque Steer ??

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I've only just got my first Alfa, a GTV 2.0 TS. All is well, but for when I am trying to go fast around right hand bends! Left handers no problem, but right handers, the car every now and then tries to straighten up. Suspension and steering wise, everything appears okay. The tyres however on...

    Hi all, I've got a slow leak in my power steering and it turns out to be a low pressure retun pipe. Part No. is above. Anyone know of a good source for getting parts? I'm in New Zealand and the dealers here want an arm and a leg for this. All help appreciated thanks. Terry

    Someone asked me if my 166TS suffered from torque steer. What is it?
  13. Torque Steer

    Alfa 155
    I'm getting a lot of torque steer when booting the V6. I know it has a lot of torque, but I think the front shocks might be away. It sort of "wobbles" left and right like it's tramlining when I drill it. Is this normal for the V6 ????
  14. What's torque steer?

    General Alfa Discussion
    I've heard this term oh so many many times, but I must admit that the description has always eluded me... :confused: So, could somebody be so kind as to enlighten me on this subject? :D Thanks! Ant
  15. Do late 33's still torque steer?

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    The first 33's (series 1 and 2) torque steered, right? So Alfa got rid of the torques steer on the P4's which came out in 91/92. So, do the subsequent standard non -p4 33s in 93/94 torque steer under hard acceleration?
