  1. Alfa GTA
    Hi, had a weird issue in the car where I was cruising maybe around 80km/h and then the car would suddenly lurch (abrupt jump) to the right-hand side. The VDC light flashes, steering pushes to the right-hand side and I would have to hard correct. Only lasted momentarily and happened twice, I...
  2. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi Hopefully someone out there has experienced this issue and knows what the problem might be. About 2 months ago when trying to start my GTV, the engine turned over but did not start. It didnt start after a few attempts. After rolling the car back a foot or so, the car started right away. I...
  3. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    This is my 159 2011 TBi, sold here as the 'Elegante' trim level, including most of the comfort accessories (electric leather seats, sunroof, etc.) and, surprisingly, factory installed lower suspension, larger disk brakes and 18 inch wheels - making it similar to the TI. I've had it for a few...
  4. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello The problem is that the engine works rough on idle sometimes,at around 600-700RPM then suddenly jumps to 1300-1400RPM and shuts down. The second problem is that when I'm driving and I shift at around 4000RPM it often shuts down,RPM just goes to 0 and I have to start it again. Sometimes...

    Since upgrading to HID, the Blue&me media (MP3) turns on when even dip beam is selected either manually of in auto. It turns on even of the radio is off on on radio. The HID are wired into the battery if that makes a difference and the CD is in the player. Any ideas? It's not really a...
  6. Alfa Giulia
    Driving home last night I got a stone chip close to the edge of the windscreen which became a crack overnight ? Waiting for the windscreen company to let me know how long it will take to get a replacement which they say will have to come from Alfa and will then need Alfa to reset the lane...
  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi. I've read other couple of threads about this but thought I'd share the slightly odd circumstances here. I recently changed the battery because the old Unipart battery was starting to struggle a bit on the cold mornings. I replaced it with a Bosch with higher cold cranking power. All...
  8. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi! So far so good, my G2011 works grand. Only tiny thing I've noticed is that the S&S system turns on the car before I press the clutch at a traffic light e.g. I understand there are certain conditions where the S&S will be unavailable, but this is not something I read in the manual. Am I...
  9. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi All, I've recently joined the 916 GTV family. I bought my 3ltr gtv v6 last March and I am using it as a daily driver since November. It's an awesome car to use daily!! I have one small issue that it gets more and more annoying and I need your advice to sort it out. Sometimes when I turn the...
  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My 2007 GT 1.9 JTD suddenly won't start. It turned over a few times and the engine 'almost' kicked in. With the accelerator pushed down, there was a lot of vibration but it didn't catch. Without the accelerator pressed down, it just turns over. The battery seems fine: the lights were on (bad...
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey, I have been racking my brain to try and find some info and i hope you guys can help. Firstly i was getting the glow plug error, tested the plugs and found the culprit and changed it. No problems car started fine but was running rough at low revs. I then cleaned the injectors but after...
  12. Alfa MiTo
    Hi, all I hope someone can solve my problem. My 1.4 mito started and run for a short while with little power, returned home, parked up and then would not restart any ideas?
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    As the title suggests. When I start my car the rear fog lamp comes on. I also have the flashing glow plug light. The car starts fine. The battery makes 11.4V with the engine off. Am I correct in thinking that a new battery could make this weirdness disappear? Anyone had anything similar?
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Anyone that knows why the connect nav in my gt keeps turning itself off every 20 min, its exactly 20 mins I actually timed it.. Couldnt find anything on the net about this particular problem..
  15. Alfa Giulietta
    Good Morning Everyone, I have been a member for a while and have been much more of a browser, however the past few months I have had a niggling problem with my G and so far have had no solution. My G is a 105 Veloce, the 1.6 JTDM with a measly 25000 on the clock, so it only had its oil change...
  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    HI a Few months ago my alfa 156 2.5 v6 (2001), started cutting out while im driving. When dead, only the handbrake and oil lights flicker and the temperature gauge jumps around, while this is happening the car would turn over but no start. I would disable the battery for a few minutes and...
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi :) I've just bought an alfa 147 2005. Was enjoying the drive home, but then, at a corner, while going from stopped, just turned off. After a few attempts to turn it back on the engine was just turning over. After it cooled down slightly it turned on again. Only then I realised that the car...
  18. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    So a mate of mine who already owns a GTV V6 announces that he's bought a Zoe Yelow V6 Spider with 71k miles, over the phone. He is based in North Yorkshire and the car is based at a garage in Taunton. Hasn't seen the car, it needs a new clutch but will get fitted before delivery. £3.5k...
  19. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I just bought an obd ii device, this one http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/WIFI-iCar-iV350-ELM327-OBD2-Diagnostic-Scanner-iOS-Android-USB-Bluetooth-Wind7-8-/171388377403?ssPageName=ADME:X:AAQ:GB:1123 It seems to work fine except that the head unit won't work at the same time! I don't seem to be...
  20. ICE & Blue&Me
    Simple one this - when my 147GTA is left parked for an hour or two (key off, doors locked), sometimes the stereo will turn itself on. It goes into CD mode by itself (even if last used for radio) and either starts playing the CD - a lovely surprise when getting back into the car - or other...
