    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all, I am a prospective Giulietta owner and this is my first post on this forum. I am looking to buy a 2014 Giulietta 1.4TB with 45,000 miles on it. The car is imported by an Alfa dealer from UK to Ireland (as I'm based in Ireland). It was bought on the British Car Auctions, and it just...
  2. Weird problem with passenger airbag cover

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I returned from Norfolk to West Sussex today,and possibly because of the vibrations and solar radiation heating up the dashboard,the cover for the airbag on the passenger seat-nearside, came loose and almost fell off from its position. I pulled over,investigated and it appears that the cover is...
  3. Weird fuel supply problem. '06 159 2L jtd

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    The tank is 3/4 full, but after driving for an hour, the gas gauge needle started dropping to zero, and there was a corresponding loss of power. I pulled off, looked around, found nothing, got back on the road, and drove for ten minutes before the symptom returned. The gauge jumped back and...
  4. Electric window problem. Weird

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    So I have recently acquired a 916 spider to join my GTV and 159. It needs some tlc. I discovered last night that the passenger door window will not open using the passenger door switch. It works fine with drivers door switch, so the motor is fine. I swapped the door switch on the passenger...
  5. Selespeed weird pressure 38-47.9 bar

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey guys, So lately my Alfa started to believe that it's a kangaroo and was hopping like mad and sometimes not engaging first gear. Turned out to be EV0. Changed it - all good. :silly: Though in FES, I've noticed that my max pressure is 47.9 bar and the pump engages around 37-ish. I can get...
  6. Idle Speed Actuator Reset - still behaving weird with AC on and best way to train it

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all! I replaced my knackered Idle Speed Actuator with a used unit and reset it. It's gently 'finding its feet' but I'm curious what your experiences were like when you reset its parameters - how long did it take to idle fully normally? With the AC off it's 95% great, but with the AC on it's...

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all. I got a brand new Guilietta few days ago. And i noticed if i direct all the heat to the feet. Air still comes out from the windscreen vents. If i direct the heat to any other single direction. It works as intended. Not sure where to start with this. Any ideas? Is it possible any of...
  9. Weird suspension knocking

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    As stated in the title, it seems like something is under stress during hard turning left-right and hard stopping and starting and then randomly releases that stress (while waiting for green light) with a knock that can be felt abd heard in the footwell. Also all of a sudden reverse gear started...

  11. Alfa 159 weird boost / revs??

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I was wondering if anyone else has suffered from this or knows what it might be? When I drive my 2.4 (210) hard it revs upto about 3500 revs and then flat spots. My swirl flaps are leaking a bit but this seems more than that? I have a hybrid turbo. Any ideas?? Thanks

    Hey. I'm interested in a 156 sw, but i saw some photos of it and there's a really sketchy weld on a part that i don't recognize. It looks like some kind of arm in the suspension but i'm not sure and i really need to know part is this. Help needed ASAP!
  14. Mechanics make a weird noise when they see an Alfa

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Is it fear? Is it hatred? Is it disgust? "So you're the person who brought that Alfa into my workshop." :P You noticed that?

    Recently completed a 1500 mile road trip in my QV to the Outer Hebrides Scotland on my way back South noticed as I was pulling away a strange whirring noise under acceleration in first gear.

  16. GTV6 - Weird Indicator Glitch / Fix

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I was giving the GTV6 a once over, as it is coming up to MOT time. Just as I thought I was going to get away with no issues, the indicator light on the dash decided to turn solid green and when I moved the stalk, the indicators themselves were constantly lit on the relevant side. Just before I...
  17. Alfa GT - Rare AF? (also weird indicator timings)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I just got back from driving all the way from south Cornwall to Luton via Oxford (about 700+ miles in all), and I didn't see another GT the whole way! Saw a couple GTV's and a 147. Triumphs, Caterhams, even a Lambo. (oh and a Lotus Espirit zoomed past, which sounded amazing!) But not a...

    Weird series of events, can anyone give an explanation ? Was stuck in motorway traffic (M50 Dublin, 3 lane car park) Noticed the temp gauge go over the 90 a bit, but it was a hot day so.... It climbed on towards the mark after the 90, fans had started running...I whacked the heater full on to...
  19. Weird Noises....

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Well fitted new air filter today and changed the oil - just a mini service. While i had the air box off and its pipework I thought i'd clean the inlet/butterfly with some carb cleaner. All went back together and the car runs nice and smoothly - although now the motor that opens /closes the...
