    OK, so, I currently own a 156 2.5 V6 and I need a new car since I will probably be getting a new job at a somewhat distant location. I would be travelling around 160 km every day (60% highway, 30% open road and 10% heavy traffic). Currently I am torn apart on whether I should buy a cheaper...

    Hi All, I didn't want to resurrect an old thread hence the reason for starting a new one. With the readily availability of non subscription trackers I thought it a good idea to give my impressions on them. These trackers work using a 2g compatible mobile sim and can be set up with various...

    Hello everyone, I'm a frequent visitor to these parts for the invaluable tips and advice but I haven't posted on the site for quite a while now. After a week from hell my Alfa GT Q2 Cloverleaf 1.9 JTDm has sadly gone ka-boom! Although the oil cooler and hoses had been replaced the dreaded...

    I've used one of those FIAT parts sites to find the build date for my 159. When the results come up, it also gives a Vehicle Number (all numbers no letters). Does anyone know what this refers to?

I was thinking of going to look at a car tomorrow at a dealer around 20 miles away. the car was advertised with 104k showing and was in good condition for the money. I looked at the MOT history check and in 2013 the...

    Hello people, I changed my timing belt over the weekend and I have noticed that the vehicle has lost power! It strangles going up a climb that it used to take without issues. What could be the problem? There are no error messages or anything like that. Thanks

    There's a lot of information on here about poor running issues and I'm gradually working my way through them. Firstly tonight I cleaned the MAP sensor. It was absolutely pitted!
