  1. Alfa Giulietta 2015 - outside temp gauge

    Alfa Giulietta
    Can anyone offer advise / help. Recently acquired 2015 Alfa Giulietta. All good. Only issue is that the dashboard outside temp gauge continiously reads 0 degrees C. It is illuminated both on the dash behind steering wheel and on the larger screen above the radio, just reads zero. Anyone know...
  2. QH thermostat and temp sender problems 2.0 ts

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Thought this thread may be of interest and I hope to get some experienced comments by return. I acquired another TS GTV and set about sorting some running problems. I had a cold running problem which I fixed by changing the maf and repairing a hidden air intake pipe split. But MultiEcuScan...
  3. Cabin Heater / Engine Temp

    Alfa Stelvio
    Couple of quick questions to placate my curiosity regarding the heater. Is the cabin heater supplemented with an electric heat source or is it just very effective? I've noticed hot air heat coming from the heater after only a few hundred yards of travel from startup which is a good thing...
  4. 164 Coolant Temp Sensors

    Alfa 164 & 166
    On my 3.0 12V the engine temp gauge isn't working and I traced the problem to be on my sensor. Now that 60540639 isn't available anymore and I didn't find one anywhere, I have to look for alternatives. How about 60513058? How and why is that different from the original one? I see 639 is a 115°C...
  5. 156 GTA Temp Gauge Puzzle

    Alfa GTA
    Hi chaps. Question for you all regarding the running temp of a 156 GTA. The gauge seems to read about 78ish when driving at motorway speeds (or even 40+ mph) It sits at 90 whilst doodling along at 10 to 20ish And, if stuck in traffic, it goes up to 95ish, fans cut in and it cools again to...
  6. Brera QV. Fuel, water and oil temp gauges dead.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    The entire cluster is dead - so dead in fact that the fuel and water needles couldn't even be arsed to drop to zero. No illumination either. Checked the fuses (39, 42 and 49) just in case there's separate power to them, but they're fine. I'd also hoped that maybe fitting a new stereo a while...
  7. Problems with A/C however no temp reading also

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hiya! This has probably been asked before so apologies, I have read other threads but just wanted clarification. I have a 2015 giulietta which I’ve just bought. The air con is very intermittent with none more often than working however I did notice that at first the temp reading (above the dna...
  8. Engine Temp Dropping

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Good Morning Everyone, During the first 3 or 4 years of owning my 147 the temperature would be consistently at exactly 90deg (obviously once it gets up to it). However during the last few months I've noticed it is dropping and is currently stopping at around 86/87deg. I know this isn't much but...
  9. Oil temp sensor on JTD? (NQS proxy alignment)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello people of alfaowner! For about a year now, my GT has been in the need of a proxy alignment, as the NQS started warning about (not programmed) after the car was without battery for a few days early last year. I´ve tried to use both Multiecuscan and Fiat Examiner 2 to run a proxi alignment...
  10. Battery and Oil Temp sensor

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi there, I have a 67 plate Giuliettea JTDm-2. From the day I got it the oil temp sensor doesn’t work in the Alfa Performance app and just reads “—°C” am I better off just going to a garage or is there a way I can see if it is working and if there’s a problem elsewhere? Also, if you could give...
  11. JTS new coolant temp sensor faulty

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    As per title, I got a new coolant temp sensor. It is a FAE 33723 in a Cambiare box VE375006. I spent a bit of time ensuring it was nothing I had done but it kept triggering a management code described as "coolant temp sensor circuit A". I put the original one back in and all is well from the...
  12. 159 2.4 water temp issue

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Good morning to you all. I left the Alfa fold a while ago after selling my 159 Lusso but have returned as I missed the stunning car on the drive. I bought an immaculate black TI 2.4 from an Alfa Owners member whom used the car as a second vehicle and spent most of its time at concourse shows...

  14. Brera Temp Gauge

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello All, Ive noticed that the temp gauge on my Brera takes a while to get up to 90 degrees - and it often only reaches 90 degrees when im on the motorway for a long period of time. As soon as I slow down or just potter around town the needle will drop to about 80 degrees. Heaters etc all...
  15. Where is temp gauge sensor on 75 Twin Spark?

    Alfa 75, RZ, SZ
    Hi all, I've had the engine mounts replaced on my 75 Twin Spark - they were shot to pieces. The guy doing it must have disturbed/knocked the temperature gauge sensor as it has stopped working. I did see it go up to 40 degrees then drop back down to zero. Where is this located so I can check...
  16. GTV T-spark temp gauge movement

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    After a couple of years away from Alfas I've bought a GTV T-spark as a toy - its a ph3 2002 and it works very well and looks great in black. There are a few foibles the worst of which is the temperature gauge which seems to dance depending on speed and revs. On a run it will sit just above 90...
  17. Driving temp & overheating

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So my 156 1.8 TS CF3 is running at around 85°c under normal conditions (main roads) - around 90°c on motorway, and it heats up as quick as I expect it. However, sitting in traffic, even at days with only 18-20°c ambient temp, it will quickly heat up to +95°c. The radiator itself is new (replaced...

    Help Needed - MSCF - Running Issues, Coolant Temp, No Temp Reading from OBD I had my car serviced this week, and at the same time had the thermostat replaced as I had noticed that although the gauge got up to temp slowly to 90 round town, if on a dual carriageway or motorway it would drop to...

    Hi all, I've ordered a new coolant tempature sensor, however after removing the fitted one I've discovers the new one's stem is slightly bigger diameter Is it okay to use this one as it looks identical other than this Tia Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk
