    Anyone have any tips on 156 TS vacuum pipe removal? It won't budge and the tiny plastic flaps have disintegrated
  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    After failing to trace a boost leak via the usual suspects and to eliminate the turbo being at fault I ran a vacuum hose direct from the t-piece in the large vacuum hose just under the top inlet direct to the watergate, which confirmed movement with vacuum (to much vacuum) then to test running...

    Hi My 2007 GT 1.9jtd is suffering from lack of boost, there is no vacuum at the turbo actuator. All the pipes are good. I pulled the pipe off the T piece to brake servo and got a hiss, so reservoir holds vacuum, why am I getting no vacuum to the actuator? Sent from my P8_Mini using Tapatalk
  4. The Technology Section
    Anyone have one of these? I've been tempted by a stick vacuum for a while, for the convenience and the smaller storage space needed. But are they genuinely as powerful as a corded vacuum, as they claim? I was originally tempted by the Dyson V10 - but put off it and others by the astronomical...
  5. Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    Hi All! The Mrs has a Giulietta 140 JTDM and it has started going into Limp mode - Zero boost but otherwise drives ok. No engine error codes raised as yet. I can hear a hissing noise to the right of the engine while its running, near the vacuum pipes so i started diagnosing there... I pulled...
  6. Alfa Giulietta
    Hello, Does anyone know the specs in Hg or PSI at the MAP sensor for this please? If anyone has the ability to test theirs i would be grateful - i believe im pulling low vacuum at idle but i dont know the baseline for the multi air If anyone can test that would be good Either: Vacuum guage...
  7. Alfa Giulietta
    Hello, Does anyone have any idea where it is best to fix a vacuum gauge to a Giulietta 1.4 MA. I obviously need a vac line/port past the throttle body. I can only see 2 that would be obvious to use, one is the line to the Fuel pressure regulator which I gather is a no go for vacuum testing...
  8. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, Quick question - Has anyone used a Vacuum gauge to test Vacuum on a Giulietta MA. If so could you point me to where you attached the gauge for an accurate reading please? Only sensible line I can see is the breather from turbo inlet pipe to inlet manifold but unsure if disconnected it...
  9. Alfa MiTo
    Hello! I need help! My check engine light is always on. I have scanned errors and there is one P0555 - Brake boost vacuum switch. I deleted it, but after some seconds is comes again. Start stop and DNA are not working due to this. Could someone tell me how to fix it?
  10. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi guy's, Getting a little bit of an oil leak on to the ridged coolant pipe have changed the rocker gasket with an original Alfa gasket but still the leak is there. Next place it could be coming from in the vacuum pump running of the gearbox end of the exhaust camshaft. Before I dismantle it is...
  11. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Noticed a small 50p piece size oil mark on the drive the other day...it was coming from the vacuum pump where it meets the head. Now I removed it...easy enough with just four Allen bolts...and cleaned up the area. Now I was not sure if it was where it meets the head or the pump itself was...
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My GT JTDm has a weird intermittent noise which can only be described as sounding like a vacuum cleaner. It doesn't happen from startup and usually only occurs after revving over 2000rpm whilst driving. It will then randomly disappear if I open up the throttle again whilst driving and come on...
  13. Alfa 75, RZ, SZ
    Hi there, My first post on here. A bought an 1988 Alfa 75 3.0 V6 last year and having recently encountered an issue where by pushing the brake pedal causes the engine to run rough. I pressed the pedal 3 times repeatedly and the engine cut out. Now every time I start the engine, it cuts out...
  14. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi All, I need to change the thermostat housing again since its leaking (brand new Gates failing after 1 year) and I would like to resolve the oil leak at the same time that is near the thermostat housing. But I'm not sure if its the vacuum pump gasket that is leaking oil or something else, see...
  15. Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Hello, Does anyone have access to a Weber 36 IDF that has the vacuum port? My 88 Sprint has a distributor with vacuum advance but no port on the carburetor so I was thinking of drilling and tapping where the blanking is but I would like to know if it's just a straight trough hole or something...
  16. Alfa MiTo
    Hi, i am looking for a cheap but good vacuum extractor pump! Any recommendations?
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello, So long story short, during a -5c day i was driving around in my 1.9jtd GT somewhat aggressively (after it warmed up). Unfortunately, the turbo, on top of standard whistling sounds, suddenly started making a lower frequency whooshing sound. The closest I can describe it as is a low power...
  18. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All Can anyone recommend a Vacuum Accumulator for running aiding the brakes instead of using the plenum for vacuum . :sonar: or how much vacuum roughly would i need. as im thinking of keeping the hose connected to the plenum for the vacuum when throttle closed and on the same line and have...
  19. Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Good Afternoon, I have 1994 Alfa 33 with Carbs Dellorto fitted with Original Dual Carb Airfilter but K&N. I wanted to add a Vacuum Gauge to see how the car is running but when I connect it to the Distributor Vacuum Advance (LH Carb Outlet) I only get 5 - 10 mmHg when i accelerate and as soon...
  20. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I've decided to tackle my brake issues head on by no longer applying careful thought and logic (which has got me nowhere in the last year) and attacking the whole system and throwing money at the problem! Today I removed the rear brake servo and, when I removed the "vacuum air valve" found a...
