  1. Expansion tank cap

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Managed to close the bonnet on my expansion tank cap which I removed to top up the level. This cracked the top of it so I have fixed it with epoxy putty for now. Looking at replacements online, they have a breather valve on them whereas mine does not! Anyone able to clarify? Car is a 2001 2.0TS...

    Thank You A O forum, reading a recent post about coolant loss i checked my header tank on my 2012 QV and it demonstrated all the symptoms of the failed unit, a brown "burnt" look on the top of the tank where the return pipe jets coolant back into the tank. I ordered a replacement from our...
  4. Coolant tank on 1750 TBi

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi guys, This weekend I discovered the L-shaped connector for one of the return pipes cracked. I've already ordered the updated version with the brass insert (which as I've seen around here is also prone to cracking), and I was wondering where does this hose that's unique to the TBis come...
  5. Fuel tank & gauge reading?

    Alfa Stelvio
    What are others experiences here? I brimmed the tank local to the dealer on collection with 15m on the clock, it took 30 odd litres of diesel from its indicated 1/2 full reading, which seemed about right. I've done 386m since and today with 45m left on the range, its boinging at me to refuel...
  6. Removing fuel tank on 147

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have a fuel leak from my tank. I think its a hose loose at the top of the thank as it only comes out when I top it up. Its been like this since I bought the car and I never worried about it but I was thinking that I should have a look at it. How do I remove the tank? It looks like I have to...

  10. Stelvio fuel tank in a Giulia?

    Alfa Giulia
    If you are driving one of the diesel versions of the Giulia a 58 litres fuel tank is obviously enough for a very good range, but slightly different prospect with the petrol models, especially the Quadrifoglio. Got me thinking that since the Stelvio and Giulia are built on the same platform...
  11. Expansion tank coolant loss?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I've read that a few people have had issues with the 159 coolant expansion tank leaking. Is there a way to test for this? My 159 1.9JTDm looses a bit of coolant over time but I can't find any obvious leaks. I'm wondering if there maybe an issue with the expansion tank.

    Has anyone removed this? Is it straightforward? Also how does it draw the fuel up? Is there a filter or strainer of some sort?

  17. Expansion tank question

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi guys, I've just replaced the expansion tank on my 159 and I've just realised that I've not removed the metal pipes (circled below) from my old expansion tank and fit them onto my new one as the new tank came without this part. Can I leave this off or do you recommend I remove the tank and fit...
  18. Another Tbi Header Tank Failure

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I've been losing a small amount of cooling fluid recently. About a cupful per month. No obvious leak signs. So today I got serious and got the under bonnet area really warm and then a 10 minute hot soak. When I opened the bonnet I heard a slight hiss from the Coolant Header tank and managed to...
