    Hi, I have a 156 1.9TDI Sportwagon which has developed a lot of smoke especially under hard acceleration. I've been told that they develop a hole in a breather pipe but I can't seem to locate it. Can anyone give me an indication as to where to look? Cheers!
  3. Alfa Giulietta
    Hello, Found that my rear heated window is not working. The light comes on on the button and the mirrors heat but don't get anything from the rear window. Have checked the 30A fuse in the engine compartment fuse box for the heated window and that's fine. I'm sure I used to hear a relay...

    I've been sneaking around here a while now, but this is my first post! I'm considering a turbo upgrade for my 2008 159 2.4 JTDm QTronic. After quite a lot of research I think I will go for the GTB2260VK. Darkside Developments are selling a new unit with vacuum conversion that seems really...

    Can't believe it, power steering fluid boiled up last week pouring out over the engine bay. (no noise). I topped up the container so i could drive it down the road to a local Alfa Independent. System checked, he found no leaks so he drained the system and put in new fluid. 2 days later almighty...

    As many of you will know by now, I recently traded in the (thirsty) Alfa for an (economical) Golf. Whilst I was sorry to wave the Alfa off (there's nothing quite like a 166 :cool:), I'm pretty pleased with the new motor. Here are my thoughts about the new car: 2004 MkV VW Golf 2.0 GT TDi 140...

    Please can anyone help as my mate lives in London and is bewildered at the extortionist price the stealers are demanding to carry out an 18k service. My mate is also willing to travel up to a radius of 100 miles from central London.

    I was sitting in a traffic jam behind an A4 2.0 TDI when I noticed it's twin tail pipes (fom one box). I thought one didn't look quite right, then I noticed why..... It was a blank, i.e. just a bit of pipe welded on to the box, connected to nothing :lol:. Are Audi now trying to appeal to the boy...

    I had the 'pleasure' of using one of these this weekend as a hire car - did 750 miles across various types of terrain. First of all the engine; pretty characterless but oh my, could Alfa learn some things from VW about economy!! I absolutely ragged the **** of this car and it returned 45mpg on...

    The performances of this car speak for themselves, really... power-500 hp torque-1000N/m max speed-250 km/h(as usual with the germans,it's only limited to that figure!) acceleration 0-100 km/h - 5,5 seconds. More that half of the torque is available with the engine idling,so that must be enoug...
