    Hi all, ive had this noise, sounds like air bleeding out of somewhere when im driving. Doesnt seem to kick in at any particular rev range it just happens. Best way i can describe the noise is it sounds like darth vader breathing, but its not very loud. I havent noticed any powerloss either car...
  3. Alfa MiTo
    Hi folks, I'm driving a 0.9 twin air currently on 95k miles. Every now and again, the turbo stops - normally when in fairly low revs but engine under load going up a hill. It works again on restarting the engine. This is in normal driving mode (natural). No noises. Recently changed air filter...

    Cylinder head cracked, so new one needed, local garage can't (or won't) source one for me, so looking online. Thought I'd found one, but it seems it was incorrectly listed as suitable for my 2013 TwinAir 105HP Turbo (engine code 199B6000), whereas it only fits non-turbo(?) 86HP with engine...

    Hello. I have an Alfa Romeo 159 1.9jdtm 8v. Wanted to know if the 2.4l 159 jdtm turbo will fit and work with my car?

    My hose for the wastegate has been cut for the last 5 months. We heard strange sounds when accelerating. It seems that the mechanic shop by accident did cut it when mounting new timing belt. I have now reemountet the hose. No strange sound now. What is the risk that turbo or anything else has...
  8. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi guys, I'm having an issue with my giulietta 2.0. Randomly one day I was making no boost. No error codes or anything. Then from time to time it builds boost but loses it, almost in surges. Took the car to the garage and changed the turbo and actuator, but the problem is still the same. I've...
  9. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi everyone My Giulietta recently lost a lot of power so I immediately brought her to the workshop. Turns out the turbo is quite damaged and needs replacement. The owner announced me that he ordered a new turbo for 740€ (excluding labour) - which I found really high, and after a minute of...

    I genuinely love my 159 and plan on keeping it for years. I’ve had it tuned but I’d love to make it even faster again, as I don’t drive often now but when I do I want to enjoy it. I’ve thought about selling it and upgrading but i really love the 159 and it’s in ridiculously good condition for...
  11. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi everyone. I'm a relatively new Alfa owner, and absolutely love the car. However I have some issues with it, that I'm trying to figure out. One of the problems that I'm having is that it sometimes won't hit boost in 2nd gear. The boost gauge shows pressure as normal, but the car runs like a...
  12. Alfa MiTo
    Hello I'm thinking about putting a turbo charger in a 1.4 petrol MiTo and I haven't been able to find anything online discussing if the internals on the model without OEM turbo would be strong enough to have a turbo put on. Any replies on this would be greatly appreciated thank you
  13. Alfa Giulietta
    Hey, I don’t know if anyone has any advice but the turbo has started playing up on my 2l jdtm. As soon as the turbo reaches temperature it stops boosting and kicks up the fault code turbo boost position sensor. In that little time the boost is working it blows back air through the intake when...
  14. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Dear, Alfa Romeo owners, A problem with turbo boost occured after oil leak fix from engine (valve cover seal and oil pump seal) - though it might be there before. So when cruising in city (50 - 60 km/h) turbo gauge sometimes start to drop and rise with no reason - the drop is so small you...
  15. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi everyone, I have a diesel Alfa 159 2008 Quatronic. I have a turbo problem since I fix engine water plug crack 1 week ago. When I first start my engine, after 4-5 km run, turbo losses power and closed, then my car wont able to run more than 50 km/h. After that, I stop my car and re-start...
  16. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi Everyone, Im hoping that someone may be able advise on what to do. I have a 2.4 diesel which has recently picked up a really load screch. It started off as a bit of a whine, however after pulling away from some traffic lights there was a bit of an unfamiliar noise followed by a lose of...
  17. Alfa MiTo
    Hey guys, I'm looking for a bit of advice regarding a MiTo I saw today. I went to view a TB120 today to replace my current car, almost identical minus leather but plus BOOST. Car has been really well looked after, drive great, but has what looks like an unfortunate supermarket car park...
  18. Alfa Giulietta
    So bought a multiair 13 plate a couple of weeks ago. When I accelerate hard the turbo kicks in nicely but that around 4000rpm I loose boost for half a second. Now it only seems to do this in the first 15 mins of driving. Is this normal? Is this just because the engine isnt warm enough yet? I...
  19. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    First 2 weeks of owning my 2.4 210 sportwagon and I’ve enjoyed the car a lot (over 2000 miles already). I’ve noticed some slight issues however. On harsh acceleration above 3.5k it puts out a fair bit of black smoke, and from lower revs on moderate to harsh acceleration there’s a quite high...
