    Howdy guys! I'm having a really nasty wind whistle at 80+ km/h, at lower speeds I don't hear anything. The car is LHD if that matters, there's no water or wind coming through the seals, windows are closed shut, I've done the up+down+hold for 10 seconds calibration = same stuff. I do suspect...

    I am after for advice, please. I have an Alfa 159 2.0jtdm with 95.000 miles on board remapped and all was ok until a week ago when I decided to see what the car can do and I managed to get 140mph on the highway. Since then I have noticed a mild turbo whistle but no smoke or any issues with...

    Hi all, New poster so please be kind! Owner of a 1.4 petrol 155bhp Mito with 85k on the clock. Have been hearing a whistling/whining sound from the engine when under load recently, only when the turbo is working hard and the other day when I was giving her some welly going up a big long hill...
  6. Alfa Giulietta
    I have a Guiletta Exclusive JTDM -2 which has just developed a whistle sound from the turbo. I have no loss of power what’s so ever and the whistle can be heard when I pull away. It started 4 weeks ago. Do I need a new turbo or as I have been told as no power loss should be fine.
  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have a continuous whistle that doesn't change with engine revs. I've only noticed it in the inside of the car. It sounds a bit like interference on the radio, but it happens even when the radio is off. It only seems to happen once the car is well warmed up after a run. It is quite faint...
  8. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello everyone, I have been following this forum for quite some time but in the past 3 years and I have been lucky enough to be pretty much problem free with my GTV 2.0TS, until now... So this is my first post, and I seek some advice from you fellow alfisti! It's about couple of weeks that...

    Hi everyone. I'm new to Alfas and i didn't find anything useful so i hope someone can help a little with my issue. :) I just bought my 2.4 jtdm 210bhp and something makes a weird whistle noise from around 1500rpm to 2200ish. i searched through youtube and find only one which sound like mine...

    Hi, my car makes a whistle sound which is very annoying around the 1.8k RPM mark and I really would like to know is this is a problem or just my overconcern. Car: AR 147 1.9JTDm facelift
  11. Alfa MiTo
    I have just had pads all around fitted in mid February which stopped the awful whistling noise. This whistling noise has started again and is gradually getting worse (coming from the front nearside) it only does it when on the gas/coasting not braking, as soon as I hit the brakes it stops...
  12. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    How much of a whistle should I expect from a 1.9 JTDm turbo? I have checked all the pipe work and all good. I wouldn't say the noise is excesive but should it be audible out side the car at low revs.(1500-2000) Is this something I need to bear in mind or is this fairly standard on these cars ?
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I've noticed in the mornings or when the car is cold, the turbo is fairly noisy, like a police siren sort of noise or rick flare wooo. This then goes away after about a minute or two and makes no noise at all. I can't see any white/blue smoke except from the usual stuff when the weather...
  14. Alfa Giulietta
    :thinking:Hello people, my 2011 Alfa 2.0 JTDM.2 Giulietta has just travelled past 34.000 miles but to my disbelief I heard what I can only describe as a tiny animal screaming while being throttled as I gave the G some throttle the other morning. The noise didn't go away come the evening as I'd...
  15. Tuning & Upgrades
    Hi all, I have a 2006 JTD 16V 147, it has done 250 000km now. Its completely stock, but I think its a bit special, due to the power, and would like to mod at least something. I was thinking about the wastegate noise, but my engine/turbo does not have something like that. Now while checking a...
  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT

  18. Introduce Yourself
    Hi guys, Just thought I'd say hi - I'm Matt and I'm from North London. Recently got my hands on a beautiful GT with tan leather interior (don't tend to see alot of these about with the tan) and just got it remapped to about 180bhp, but with a lovely Torque increase :devious: Only problem was...
  19. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    As the weather is getting colder I've noticed a whistle from the turbo as it spools up. Is this a problem? When the engine coolant warms up the noise disappears.
  20. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Sorry if this subject has been covered somewhere on this forum, but my turbo for sometime now has a whistle , only when driving , the higher the pitch the more accelleration , no loss of power , in fact I quite like it , had a service today from my reputable Alfa garage who said the turbo going...
