  3. Losing power after warming up

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I have just bought a '51 2.4 JTD Veloce and found that after the engine warms up I am unable to go above 3500 revs, when cold it is fine. I also noticed the ecu light and the warning light has come on. Any Ideas? Also does anyone know a good cheap Alfa motor mechanic near Trowbridge...

    Motoring Images
    It's a great thing to do :D Me and the old man decided to take the Alfa's out for a spin today and add some hydorcarbons to the envoirnment for for free and burn some expensive fuel. HMMMM V6
  5. Global warming is on the way.. big time.

    Republic of Ireland
    I was playing around with the satnav in the missus car the other day... I zoomed away out and noticed it looms like the Atlantic is drying up.... Wonder why Alfa didn't tell anyone? On the bright side we'll be able to drive to New York in a few years..... Now that would be some meet! :thumbs...
  6. I Got A House As A House Warming Present!

    Non Motoring Images
    I could not believe it when my parents walked through the door with this present from Levente (aka klapanciusz on AO) and his better half Moni. The pics can't even tell half the story of the amount of detail and work that went into this, it will be a shame to eat it. Jeanette wants to preserve...
  7. When cold really hard to get car into gear, 5 mins warming and fine?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    As above. Is this indicative of a gearbox on the way out, one that needs more oil in the box or the clutch is going and needs replacing? When I say hard to get into gear I mean literally won't go in unless engine is off - it will grind if I try to push it into gear. If I start in gear with...
  8. engine warming up, hot or what

    Alfa Giulietta
    :confused:Has anybody noticed how very fast the MA engine warms up, about 1.5mls or so:thumbs: took my 159 jtdm about 4 mls or so
  9. Warming up your engine

    Alfa GTA
    At what point do you consider your GTA engine to have warmed up, and what do you avoid doing until it is warm? Do you go by the water temp, the oil temp, or maybe even the climate control actually kicking in? For me I go by the oil temp, and until I get the first bar lit I stay below 4000rpm...
  10. Global warming. Are you a believer or a sceptic?

    Poll Room
    Simple really, are you a believer in man made global warming or a skeptic. I have included the other option just in case.
  11. I'm warming to the mito - a lot!!

    General Alfa Discussion
    Just been browsing around the web at Alfas. I was never keen on the mito in photos but I've seen a few in the 'flesh' and I'm really starting to like them now... Just seen this one - PistonHeads.com and now I like them even more - Gorgeous!:thumbs::thumbs:
  12. interior heater not warming up

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    does anybody have any ideas, I have a 156 2l (1998) engine running to correct temp. fan working, electrical switch's checked and ok. but the inside tempature never heats up. It used to blast out
  13. My missus needs warming up!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Ok, I bought a 156 JTD (2003) back in June, and as a sweetener to stop my girlfriend moaning about how much it cost I told she will love it in the winter as it's got heated seats and an "additional heater" which warms the car even before the engine gets to temperature. She liked the sound of...
  14. warming up??

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all. :thumbs: just had a new rad fitted as mine was loosing its fins. Well before change the temp would be about 90 at motorway speeds or just a little under and rise in traffic until the fan kicked in. And after change its lower at about 80ish? or where the 9 of 90 is and when i stop it...
  15. So what car would persaude you out of the 166? (Warming contains Non Alfas!)

    Alfa 164 & 166
    With so many of the 166 regulars buying <strike>tractors</strike> sorry I mean <strike>tight fisted oil burners</strike> OOPS... :D Anyway I was wondering what cars we all fancy other than the 166? Mine are Real world: Spider S1-4 Alfa Romeo : ALFA ROMEO SPIDER SERIES 4 I really know...
  16. Warming up engine

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Just want to know how the rest of you fellow GTV drivers warm your engines before giving them some welly. I tend not to rev over 3000rpm until I've been driving for over 10 mins, and after about 5 miles. Is this adequate or am I being overly cautious? I ask as I want my GTV to last and last, so...
  17. Warming up a diesel engine

    General Alfa Discussion
    A friend of mine told me that you didn't have to wait for diesel engines to warm up. Can't remember the exact explanation he gave, but as he's a farmer I wondered if this just applies to old diesel machinery and might no longer be true for modern turbo diesels. Just curious if anyone knows?
  18. Warming Up So Slowly

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi, My v6 turbo warms up so slowly - takes up to 10-15 kms on the highway to reach 90 degrees C. It is a steady rise but slow. I wonder whether an undertray would help conserve the heat in the engine bay. Any experience or ideas?
  19. Warming up with Mercedes?

    Motoring Images
    No, don't worry, I was only warming up my camera. :D Honestly, what do you think of these shots? I didn't had the chance to control the light so, they're only show what was possible at the time. And I didn't move anything away from the show room. This was only a small test. ;)
  20. Erratic idling/no power whilst car is warming up

    Alfa 145 & 146
    I own a '99(V) facelift model 145 cloverleaf. The car always starts OK, but after a minute or two it starts to run erratically, i.e. it judders if I'm driving along at 30mph or if I'm sat at traffic lights the revs will rise and fall wildly until it (sometimes) stalls. Putting my foot on the...
