Out of work, nipping out the shop for supplies, ENGINE WARNING LIGHT kicks in and limp mode. No chance of a dealer looking at it until next week so that’s my weekend plans to pootle to Wales nerfed.
Arse. 7k miles. Bet it’s something stupid too.
Hope it rains now.

These VW drivers, cheeky basterds, classic VW move, come really close behind you at the traffic lights (fog lights on of course), then pull up real close, look in the side mirror and then try and overtake, well...not this time chummyboy, you and your Gti can eat my dust.
He tried to do it but...
Just bought a 2002/2003 Alfa 156 Sportswagon 1.8TS with 323 000 km.
Here is the situation 2 weeks ago.
1) Check Engine light- Codes P0136 and P0141 (Lamda Sensor)
2) Jerking handbrake
3) Non working rear wiper
4) Consuming oil (more than I am used to in other cars)
5) Strong Perfume smell...
Just bought myself a 159 Ti 1.9jtdm on a 58plate with 67k. Possibly belonged to someone on here in the past?
Onwed quite a few Alfas now but never a 159....The car runs well with no noticable issues to report as yet.
Anything i should look out for on these?
Site of damage about midway along passenger side. Lift fabric to check
Site of damage approx. front corner, passenger side
The resulting leakage between inner and outer sheath caused the rood to operate more and more slowly until it finally gave up. The outer sheath had burst approx. 12...
You would think in this day and age we would not be encountering such problems with our cars. It makes me sick!
This has been an issue since I bought my 2011 Giulietta a few weeks ago. I can only recreate the issue once or twice a week but its driving me mad. Not only is it massively...
Shortly after buying my '03 2.4 JTD, the clutch started slipping at full throttle and high gears. This was put down to a groove having worn on the shaft, stopping the bearing before the clutch was fully engaged. After another 25k miles, it has started again. My question is whether it is the same...

Been searching but can only find issues concerning the hinge breaking on the handle.
My hinge is intact but the when pulling the passenger door handle, it doesn't open the door. Central locking engages, all electrics work, door opens from inside and closes over, door locks work when...
Just been out in the Gt and like a fool didn't wait for the windscreen to demist properly.
Drove into a kerb and wrecked my alloy and new tyre fitted 2 weeks ago :cry:

Hello. This is my 3rd Alfa but first 2.0jts. Its a 06 plate Gt with 56000 miles. She runs like a dream but is very thirsty on oil(and fuel). Had her 6 weeks and in this time I have done 850 miles and used 1.5litres of oil. This seems a bit excessive from my previous tspark alfas. I know its the...
2 days to go to the nurburgring and the GTA decides to MCSF me :mad:
Got it into local indie this morning and its showing random misfire on 1,2 or3 - :cry:
First step is new plugs and hopefully that's it. The only noticeable difference is that it sounds very slightly rougher at idle, but not...
as title, my 147 (03) has had a new maf the other month and it still likes dumping a wad of black smoke when i rarely accelerate hard and was told cleaning the egr would possibly help (i can safely say it's not a split hose or something as that was changed last year with certain bolts sanded...
I have just been to view a very tidy and super sexy V plate Alfa GTV 3.0 V6 with 6 speed box, extremely good condition, FSH and in the right colour too- Alfa Red :thumbs:
Had a poke around, one small stone chip on the bonnet, no marks anywhere else, no dings, good tread on tyres, no kerbage...
Just driving into work this morning and thought how smooth the engine was...it felt powerful and tourqey...great fun.
The I remembered I'm taking the car in today for ARUK to look at my engine stagger problem!!
Perfect timing! :rolleyes: :)
