  1. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Alfa 159 2.0 JTDM Have a strange periodical Issue: Under warmup-period by Idle (waiting for green trafficlight) it starts with a irregular Idle, then when trying to drive at green trafficlight, the engine stalls, and it is not possible to start the engine again. When trying to start, It sounds...
  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, My 2006 1.6 TS (120PS) Alfa Romeo 147 sounds exactly like a diesel engine after warmup. I know about the very-common variator problem on this engine but I think my problem is different because my engine sounds very normal at cold starts. When I cold start the engine, everything sounds...
  3. Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)

In the Alfa handbook it suggests that driving off and warming up the car by keeping the revs low is better than sitting and idling. I tend...
  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have recently moved and find myself doing less commuting mileage than I used to and now I seem to struggle to hit 500miles to a tankful of fuel, this is a considerable drop for me as the car used to do around 550-570, now my new route is flat and traffic free so I'd think I would be equally as...
