    Haven't seen this shared yet - there's a list of Giulia updates and fixes (mostly software) with quite a lot of info available. Technical Service Bulletins #2 - Late July 2017 forward - Alfa Romeo Giulia Forum

    This is part of the ongoing saga of my wife's 04 147 1.9JTD 16v and it's failed cambelt. After having spent £400 on the broken cambelt kit and then having it fitted, on turning the engine by hand, metallic noises come from within. These weren't apparent before the kit being fitted. We (after...

    It's not something I'd normally do but have noticed that if you turn off CC when descending a hill the car actually speeds up! I'm puzzled by this as surely when descending, and speed is greater than the CC set speed, then the engine will be on full engine braking (zero injecting) with...

    I received this in February but cannot recall the source, and I can't recall if I posted it already but it includes some technical specs: Now with attachment! :thumbu p:

    Don’t Waste Your Time Listening for Knock... BY ANDRE SIMON Without a doubt, knock is easily the biggest killer of any performance engine yet it’s still largely ignored or misunderstood by a large percentage of tuners. I’ve been a strong advocate for using quality audio knock detection on any...
  11. Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    Hi guys, I'm seriously considering buying a 3.0 from a 166, taking it appart and rebuilding it to zero kms spec. :) Found an engine and I sort of know all the gear I'll have to get for this major task (sort of...). What I'd really like to know is where can I find all the technical details...
  12. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    since time for replacement of my summer tires comes quickly, I was thinking (for some time) to go with changing classic Ti sizes of 235/45R19 to combination: front (leave OEM) 235/45R19 rear (use wider) 255/40R19 according to Online Wheel and Tyre Fitment Calculator. Offset, Tyre Stretch...

    Hi all. :byebye: Really happy now that I officially can say I own an Alfa (147 Collezione 1.9 JTDM 120bhp) I have 3 quick questions: 1. Are alfa clutches supposed to be hard? It almost feels like there's a spring that increases the tension the further down you press on the clutch. 2. My door...

    Thought a new thread on a more technical nature (rather than just phwoar!) Starter for 10, what the hell is 'Torque vectoring'? Is it just passive rear steering? Electromechanical braking? Not a button handbrake?! Any spelling/ grammatical errors are purely there to annoy!

    Hi, I've been lurking around here since I first bought my GTA and have been very grateful for the wealth of knowledge and experience available here for overcoming the various niggles of Alfa ownership. So thank you all. That's the introduction out of the way... I bought my GTA with the...
  17. Alfa MiTo
    Hello alfa owners, I'm having an annoying problem with my 2011/10 Mito that I hoped somebody might have some insight into... Engine power and general function of my car is great usually, however a problem that tends to arise on the motorway for me is the engine suddenly losing power. Ill be...

    I had my Mito QV at the dealership and the mechanic said that there is a crack in the intake manifold. This according to him causes the ecu to close the throttle due to the ecu sensing excess air entering the intake. Does this make sense? As I understand it the engine has vacuum and would suck...
  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, Couple of questions re: the set up on the cloverleaf GT diesel: 1) Sport button - I know this changes it to 170 BHP but exactly happens? does is do anything to the swirls? does it sharpen up throttle and the manifold and EGR work in the same way? Reason for asking is point 2. 2) Inlet...
