  3. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all, my first post here. I just came into possession of a nice GTV 24v MY2000 and am pretty happy with it. The only (well, biggest) problem is, of course, just one key. No CODE card or numbers. No master key. The guy I bought it from assured me that you could just key a blank and it would...

    This one will require a bit of thinking but could be good fun... try to post something that is both a good news and a bad news about the Giulia. For example... Since the launch of the Giulia, we see more Alfa Romeo then ever Get it?... another one then: From the back, you can’t tell if...

    OK Parking sensors on my GT. I get no sound to say they are working, and seeing as I have never heard the sound it makes I do not know where the sound comes from either, I assumed, incorrectly, that it came through the stereo speakers and as the stereo doesnt work either then I thought that was...

    The other week, elder child dragged me to Fords of Winsford (big car supermarket that started long before car supermarkets were a thing) as she was fancying a newish Fiesta. As we wandered around the 75,000 cars, I was left with one overriding thought - "How do you go somewhere that has every...

    Hi all, I nearly stripped the sump plug thread last oil change, it juuuuust tightened enough to hold, and so need to perform a thread repair during the next change. But can anybody tell me what the thread size is of the plug? I couldn't find a definitive answer. 1997 Spider Phase 1.5 CF1 2.0TS...

  9. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, Recently bought a 2012 Giulietta. Had a few problems that I’ve managed to sort myself but unable to do this. Got the obd and MES to clear some fault codes. One was the EGR which I’ve taken out and cleaned as well as the MAP sensor. Put it back in and cleared the fault codes but they’ve...

    Is it me or are very low profile tyres more hassle than they are worth? Sure they look good, but due to the awful state of the roads I find myself stressed whilst driving and often going slower than I should be due to worries about buckling or cracking the wheels. Then there is the ride...

    …..anyone know the above? Its the pressure switch near the oil filter. Eper does not say and Id rather find out without removing it to check.....but I will if I have to. Looking to fit an oil pressure gauge and need to buy a T piece that goes there to do it. My guess would be 1/8 NPT.....but...

    Apologies, I would not normally post one of these but I need some garage space.. I have amongst others a very nice vela blue, sand leather 3.0 GTV. It has covered 36/7k in total and has been part of my private collection for over five years. It is stored in a dry garage and hasn’t seen rain in...

    In almost a repeat of events last year, we, that's my Father and I, have a new project car. A black 2011 159 sport wagon with a TBi engine. Which probably sounds familiar given my other thread...
  15. Alfa GTA
    Hey guys, I just bought myself a 147 GTA I intend to do my commute to work in her which is only 10 miles there and then 4 miles to my girlfriend's place after work as we go swimming, so I really don't think 10w-60 oil is appropriate as it's still not going to be up to temperature when I get to...
