    Hi all I'm looking to repace the engine in my Alfa GT 2006 JTD 16V. I can not source any Alfa engines, however there are many Saab 9-3 and 9-5 and some Opel Vectra with Z19DTH around where i live. Will this engine fit the Alfa GT? From pictures i have seen the oil filter (paper insert, Alfa is...

    Hi All, My Air Con Compressor is squealing like a good thing. It still works fine, but I find I have to turn it off as the squeal gets a bit irritating after a while. I have been looking at getting a second hand replacement compressor and a little bird tells me that a compressor from A Vauxhall...

    I am currently looking at buying a replacement for out Mk1 Ford Focus. We could do with something bigger, as the kids are getting bigger and the amount of junk we need to cart around has got bigger as well. The Focus is also getting a bit worn out as it now sports 132,000 miles. I have up to...

    I have seen a few threads lately explaining that the 159 shares its platform/parts with the GM group. Is this true? Am i driving Vauxhall?? :confused:

    Hello, I would like to buy a new car, but I cannot decide, which car choose :/ Because I ride every day to work (only 6 mi.) I prefer petrol car and I want wagon : ) Is Alfa 159 good in reliability (1.9 JTS - 2007) or Mondeo is better choice? 1.9 JTS have cam belt or cam chain? What about...

  12. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Had a bit of fun accelerating up a hill on a dueler the other day with a Vectra 2.5V6 blatantly trying to smoke me. He gained on me unitl I hit 3.5k revs then I pulled away lol. Was surprised I could keep up with a V6, but then the Vectra is a larger car.

    Hi all. I’m trying to get mum to bye an Alfa 155:D the reason being her vectra keeps breaking and with over 140.0000 on the clock for a vectra is a lot. She likes the look of them and driving ect. But are they cheap to run, I’m guessing not. Are the reliable or not My mum has to travel...

    Was behind a Vectra 2.2 for some distance on the way to work this morning. I was wondering, perhaps those of you who are technically minded can explain, just how much of that engine is the same as the 2.2 unit in the 159 and Brera? I know Alfa has 'fettled' the GM units, but what does that...

  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I just noticed a Vectra rental car in the company car park with a badge 2.2 Direct, after a quick search I found that it is 2198cc, the 159 is also quoted as 2198cc... Please don't tell me the 159JTS will be a vectra engine, just like the V6! :mad: It was bad enough to have a Fiat one but GM...

    Yesterday (15 July) I had to travel to London for work and was treated to a new Vectra hire car. :eek: Having heard a lot about this particular motor I was somewhat curious as to find out the truth, including the wacky wipers and indicators (anyone who has driven one will know just what I...
