    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi everybody! I had a strange thing with my late 2011 159 2.0jtdm 2.0 TI Alfa. One morning I started the car and Average consumption jumped from 7.0L/100km to 10.1L! And kept climbing like 0.1L in a minute. But it seems that current consumption shows OK numbers, but still. What may have...

    So this was scary and I clearly need to get it checked: *Edit - its a 159 2.4 ti sw. At 9pm last night while i was driving and making a turn, the car suddenly lost power steering - I could barely turn the wheel. The brakes were also not responsive and the gas pedal was also hardly getting a...
  6. sudden overheating

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    got a fright today in my 156Ti. Car yelled at me to get off the highway as my temperature gauge went suddenly supernova. I had noticed a problem getting the heater to work just prior to that. Managed to get off the road and it sucked up a litre of water and was fine. There was liquid in the...

    Hi guys, I've locked my 166 and when getting back I've noticed that the unlock was not working despite the led on the key was lighting up correctly. Puzzled I've used the key to unlock the door and I was expecting the alarm to ingage but no siren started only the directional indicators. I've...
  8. Sudden failure of three speakers

    Alfa Giulietta
    Yesterday, three speakers instantly stopped working (leaving only the front passenger speaker working) on my 2016 Giulietta . There'd been no intermittent failure before then. This happens no matter what the sound input is (i.e. on radio and media). I'm not at all techy - is there anything...
  9. 09 159 3.2 Sportwagon - Sudden no start

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi All After about a week and a half of not driving the car, I found the car with all the windows down. I put the windows back up and attempted to start it - it turns over but does not actually start. I tried reading fault codes with my generic Bluetooth OBD reader + Torque Pro app on my...
  10. Sudden RPM drop and rattle noise

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello to everyone! So, my 159 2.2 JTS has developed an issue and we're having a little trouble understanding what it is: while I'm stopped at a traffic light - for example (no gear selected) - RPM will drop down to 250 then rise up to 1.000 and back to 250. While on 250, the rattle noise. If...
  11. Sudden new vibration.

    Alfa GTA
    Help! I jumped in the car last night and as the engine started I noticed the entire car was vibrating. Only slightly, but noticeably. Driving off, the clutch pedal was vibrating strongly and the clutch was juddery as I released it. I assumed clutch issues, but when I depress the clutch fully...
  12. Anyone else with a sudden oil level drop?

    Alfa Giulia
    8,000 miles in my Speciale and the electronic oil level always showed that the oil level was at max. So much so that I even got suspicious and checked using the actual gauge in the engine - same reading. All good. Until Saturday... Motorway driving in D mode and I see the temperature slightly...
  13. Sudden drop in MPG for last 100 miles

    Alfa Giulia
    Might be nothing to worry about, but last 100 miles I'm averaging 19 MPG on the diesel 180. I was getting fantastic MPG even driving it like a *******.... Haven't noticed a huge drop in power, just some torque, anything to worry about or will it sort itself out over time do you think.

  15. Alfa 147 1.6TS sudden multiple error codes

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I wondered if any of you Alfa experts can help with this issue. I recently bought a 2008 1.6TS with a broken timing belt. After much consideration I decided the most cost effective fix was to buy a second hand complete engine. I fitted this and put a new timing belt on and the car was...

  17. Sudden loss of power

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi everyone! Long story short: I was speeding on the highway in my brother's GTV 2.0 TB, doing 180 km/h for the last 50~60 km, when all of the sudden the engine had a drop of power. I put it in neutral and parked on the emergency lane. I had quick inspection in the engine bay, no funny smells or...
  18. Sudden drop in MPG, where to start?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I do almost all motorway driving and normally get 400 miles from a tank, I've not used the car for around 3 weeks and now it looks like I'm only going to get 300 miles. Car is less than 7000 miles since her last service, and doing some research there could be many reasons, where do I start?
  19. A cheery wave and a sudden loss of coolant....

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello to the white spider on the A46 near Warwick on Saturday around 7pm. I'm sorry you had to use your wipers after I'd passed you with a wave. It was the contents of my cooling system! A break in a connector between plastic and rubber pipes led to a four hour wait for recovery. Not quite the...
  20. Sudden electrics failure and completed loss of power

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi guys had a horrible panic on the way to work today when my GTV completely died and had to be towed. First of all everything seemed fine, I started it and let it warm up and it was idling as it should and my stereo was working. All of a sudden down the road the stereo kept turning on and off...
