  1. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi there, I took the opportunity over the weekend to lift the cam cover on my '89 injection (US spec) S3 to check valve clearances.When putting it back again the workshop manual details a procedure for the VVT module which indicates that adjustment is needed. All that I did was to unbolt and...

    Can some one point me in the right direction for removal of the variable timing solenoid on a 3.2 I need to remove the bank 2 Thanks
  3. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, I have a 2011 Alfa Giulietta 1.6 JTDM which currently has a fault light coming on and off. The fault given is P1541 Variable Displacement Oil Pump which is causing a Check Engine warning light to come on, occasionally the car jumps into limp mode (max 2k revs) but that clears when you turn...

  5. General Motoring Discussion
    So driving along last night between south mimms and the m1 junction. Gantry changed to 50 and I duly obliged. Next gantry went down to 40 and with the wife and 2 kids getting rather flustered I seem to have been slow to slow down further. Looking in rear view there was about a dozen or more...
  6. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Can someone with a tspark please help? I suspect my variable inlet manifold solenoid wiring connector is on upside down, the tricky think is, i can't be 100% sure which way round it goes. The plug is designed to fit into the socket only one way up. The outside of the plug has a locking tab...
  7. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Has anyone had a definitive conclusion having had this error code? The look up gives: ' "B" Camshaft Position Actuator Circuit (Bank 1) ' I've searched high and low but cannot find a definite cause. The code (and symptoms: lethargic engine, way down on power) are intermittent, but it's obvious...
  8. Alfa 75, RZ, SZ
    So, ive done some searching on the net to better understand how this works and what it consits off, but i havnt found much only wikipedia, This was the first production engine to use variable valve timing. The variable valve timing is done with a solenoid the Alfa system varies the phase...
  9. Alfa GTA
    This has probably been covered before but i couldn't find any specific threads in my search. I've seen people on here discussing supercharging, adding throttle bodies and doing 3.7/3.8 conversions to achieve more power on the 3.2 engine, but has anybody tried VVT? When you think about it, BMW...
  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm starting to wonder if I have slowly impending clutch trouble with my JTS. It's difficult to articulate but the required effort to depress the clutch can really vary, from pleasingly light to fairly tiring. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to this - not particularly related to...
  11. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Some advice please! First off, the car runs just fine, smooth in all gears right up to 100 mph easily, just did it on the autobahn (one joy of living in Germany!) As I just put on a new Reinz cam cover gasket (great gaskets, they have a small bead of silicon built in, and the fit is perfect...
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi has any body had problems with the variable inlet manifold solnoid, im having a problem at 4000 rmp, this is when the manifold is meant to do its magic? Is it anybody know? Thanks
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, i was wondering if anyone has experienced this and what the solution was.. I have been experiencing a power loss problem since cam belt service a few months ago. Replaced the usual ie( Variator, water pump, all tensioners idlers). It is almost as if the VVT system is not cutting in/ working...
  14. Alfa 145 & 146
    my car sound a bit like a diesel on tick over,the car has 76000 miles on the clock, my emmisions are really high at high revs,about 3.05co2 at 3200revs/min,
  15. Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    I am led to believe that my inlet manifold is not working. I know it runs off a vacuum and was wondering if when the car is idling it still worked/moved even when engine is only revved. Mine doesn't as you can see it rotate when disconnect/reconnect the electrical connector between the VIS and...
  16. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Can anyone please tell me how I can check the VIS is working correctly? The problem I have is that I am trying to see if the solenoid is allowing the inlet manifold to move. I have taken it out of the housing leaving the plunger and rubber on show and left the pipe and electric cable connected...
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All. I'm hoping someone has kept their faulty variable resistor from their heater (the one with the aluminium fins). I recently bought a very cheap 156 V6 to use as a runaround until we get a bit of decent weather. Driving it home, I turned on the heater - Nothing. Got her home and nicked...
  18. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi All, Need a bit of help here. My heater resistor has finally packed it in (been on it's way for a couple of month's) Works on full speed - nothing else. Got hold of one of the normal aluminium fin encased types - that "should" fit a GTV, but that's not the right one for this GTV apparently...
  19. Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    OK, have read so much about these, my head hurts! My car - 2.0TS 146 (CF2 plastic top engine) -Oct 99 model - with an induction kit, which makes this VERY noticeable - seems to take off at about 5600-6200rpm, and the engine sound doubles in volume under full throttle. What I'm trying to work...
  20. Tuning & Upgrades
    As the title says, after a long planning I installed variable intake manifold form 156 1,8TS to 147 1,6TS. Actually I installed it twice. The first try few weeks ago was not successful and after hours of fiddling with the engine I noticed that variable intake uses different vacuum pipe to brake...
