  2. Strange scratches / Break in attempt?

    Alfa Stelvio
    What do you think has caused these scratches? 1. Just an accident like something has got wedged between the two surfaces.. 2. An attempted break in of the boot.. So recently I have been polishing this car and in and out the boot quite regularly so you kind of get to know every inch of the car...
  3. Strange engine noise 156 JTS

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    When ticking over the engine makes a strange noise like someone trying to play a recorder. If I remove the dip stick or oil filler car the noise stops. It must be related to crankcase pressure. It's not coming from the PCV valve. Any ideas???
  4. Strange smell

    Alfa Giulietta
    I'm getting a strange smell entering the cabin via the vents whenever I come to a standstill. I can't find anything stuck on the exhaust or anything obvious. The smell does remind me of electrical burning and it is strongest on the alternator side of the engine. It does smell faintly like an...

    Hello. It seems like I have a problem, there's this weird sound coming from somewhere front left of the car (GTV V6 TB), I'd describe it as a loose belt kind of noise, like it's clanking. It's not ever present, just seems to appear when giving the gas pedal a squeeze, mind you, the car can be...

  8. Strange Cruise Control behavior (147 JTDm)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, Since I bought the 147 JTDm in Sept 2018 I noticed a strange issue with the Cruise Control, but also with the Throttle Response (at least, it feels that way). Whenever the weather is getting a bit better and thus warmer, every now and then the Cruise Control will face some kind of lag...

    This applies to all 147s, 156s and GTs equally. Now the cars are older, it is quite common to experience multiple electrical faults which are due to the deterioration of electrical connections. Any car with strange faults should firstly have this attended to before looking any further. This is...

    General Motoring Discussion
    While having a casual browse for a 2.6, I spotted this. An MOT check on it shows... well, something interesting. Could be a legitimate mistake, but would this discrepancy not be flagged at MOT time that the car appears to have gone back in time...
