  1. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi people Here is my issue, my 2007 159 1.9jtdm has developed a whirring/whining noise that seems to be associated with the amount of revs the engine is at. It doesn't make a noise when idling, just when its revved or being driven obviously. At first it sounded like it was the power steering...

    Hi guys, So I have just had my clutch and gearbox changed on my 09 Mito - About a week ago. But now when driving it I am hearing a whirring type sound once the car starts to slow down. I am almost certain it is not that brakes and sounds like it is coming from the front of the car. It is not...

    The recent cold weather shed some light on existing problems with my 159 TBi: the base problem was that everytime when starting from cold, I got a whirring "diesel" sound from the engine, at least for the first 2 presses of the accelerator. After these first two quick revvings (pumping the...

    Hi everyone! I've had my 159 for about 3 years, and recently it has begun to make a strange whirring noise (see link below for video of the noise). It seems to be coming from the engine near the gearbox. It often happens when the car has pulled up to a halt and the car is idling. Being in...

    Hello, I sold my GT yesterday after many happy years together and picked up a low mile, very good condition 2.2. I am driving 18" Kumho Ecsta on each corner with tread and at correct pressure. I noticed that once I hit 60mph and higher I have a whirring sound that appears to be from the rear...

    Have this weird whirring noise on cold start. only appears on a first start in the morning, then goes away after revving a bit. Video of the noise below. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B25k8Ov1R1UGTmt3UWxWSWotS3M/view?usp=sharing
  7. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all. I'm looking for some help with what i'm hoping is a small problem with my 159... everyone loves a good mystery so here's the background... so, a while ago the drivers' window regulator failed. I'd been putting the job off until the weather was better and successfully changed it about a...

  9. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I searched for whirring gearbox noises, but this seems a bit different: I can almost feel it more than hear it, it's so faint. When I shift up to third, say 20 mph, I can hear a very faint high speed, high pitched whirring/rattling noise. If I move the shift lever a fraction in the gate, the...
  10. Alfa GTA
    Fresh back from the shop with new belts, water pump, clutch, alternator and a Q2 diff. Like many say on the forum, the Q2 is phenomenal! Accelerating into, through and out of corners will never be the same again :) After some big bills I was very much hoping this would be it for some time...but...
  11. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    My 159 over the last couple of months has developed a whirring noise when the engine is revved between 1500 and 2500 rpm. It makes no difference if the clutch is in or out. It has just had a new alternator fitted which has made no difference to this noise. When I put a long screwdriver against...
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello all, My 147 JTD has developed a whirring sound coming from the passengers' side of the car, which gets louder and more high-pitched with higher revs. This happens in neutral or in gear. Video is in this youtube click: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fxmj7udnEOI&spfreload=10 Does anyone...
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Morning people, A couple of days ago I noticed an alarming whirring sound coming from the engine bay area which had never been there before. Of course while trying to replicate the sound today to record it, it was non-existent. The best way I can describe it is a "whirr" but only when you...
  14. Alfa MiTo
    Hello all - this is my first proper post since having my new MiTo Cloverleaf. I brought the car at the end of July - trading in my beloved GTV that I had owned for over a decade. In the past I have posted a few questions on Alfaowner and always had good advice. Back to my new MiTo. She is a...
  15. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi folks. There's a low sort of whirring/humming from one of my rear wheels, I'm assuming either a wheel bearing is on the way out, or its a dodgy tyre. The rear tyres are fairly new, but the humming started a few days after they were fit, so it could be a tyre, I'm going to swap them to the...
  16. Alfa Giulietta
    So, first post and its a question on a bit of an annoying noise coming from the engine at around 50mph and above. I can only describe it as a slight 'whirring' noise that 'whirrs' then goes away for a second, then 'whirrs' again and goes away... and so on, almost like a vibration noise but...
  17. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Good Evening All, A few niggles popping up with my Spider. Firstly, on left hand bends, with the throttle applied and the front wheels under load I get a whirring sort of wap wap wap noise that I am pretty sure is coming from or near the front off side wheel area. At the MoT I mentioned it...
  18. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Starting to have a few car issues :-/ One being an annoying whirring noise once I get to 70mph? Anyone had similar? Had new disc, new tyres, tried different pressures, balanced wheels and now starting to think wheel bearing? Or something else? Makes no noise at low speed??
  19. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi Folks I am wondering if someone could either check this for me, or maybe you already know. I recently replaced the thermostat on my V6 P2, and while there cleaned out the throttle body. There was quite a bit of black gunk around the edges, so I took it off and gave it a good clean out (yes...
