  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Blackline GT 1.9 Just changed oil and filter, air filter, cleaned EGR valve (although it was very clean) and fitted new EGR gasket, Now I have noticed a whistling noise at revs before the turbo boost, it then goes away when the turbo kicks in, car runs like a dream with no loss of power. 54000...
  2. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all, I am quite new to the forums, but I'm hoping to get some advice from other Giulietta owners. I bought my G TCT QV Line 170 MA in September last year and my partner and I absolutely love the car, but it has recently developed some niggling issues, and one of them making the car annoying...
  3. Alfa 164 & 166
    Really loving my "new" 166. Did the first big trip last week over 600 miles in about 4 days, lovely cruiser on the m'way & never missed a beat. Well happy! However, I have noticed a distinct whistle / whine from the engine in any gear starting from about 3250rpm to about 3750rpm, just in this...
  4. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Afternoon all, So I have noticed that when I unlock the car and get it, before I insert the key or turn anything on there is an annoying background whistle. I assumed it is was coming from the ac but no matter what I do with the ac settings it doesn’t effect it. The whistle is there whether...
  5. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    My car has developed a lovely whistle when the turbo system is under pressure/boost. I've had a nose around, and it sounds like the whistle/air leak is coming from the top of the engine, however, I cannot spot anything! I suspect a loose or cracked pipe. Anyone have any suggestions on where...
  6. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Afternoon all, this issue is really starting to get on my nerves now, basically if I try and accelerate over 50% throttle, I get this annoying whistling coming from behind the glovebox (which changes tone as soon as the throttle position changes). For the life of me, I cannot find anything...
  7. Alfa Giulietta
    Anyone experienced this? Anything to replace apart from the entire mirror to remedy? The wind is hitting the base where the mirror pivots and something amiss is causing a high pitched whistle that can be heard through closed windows. I did place a narrow strip of tape cover the gap between the...
  8. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi All, Ive have my 159 SW 2.4jtdm automatic about three weeks now. few foibles beginning to come out of the alfawork. the background is: 08 plate, 85k miles, 2.4jtdm automatic. I have last week changed all glowplugs after a dashboard error message - which is now resolved so thats good...
  9. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    On the rare occasions I have the top up it creates a really annoying whistling from the drivers side - its coming from the top corner where the quarter-light frame meets the hood and is better if the window is wound down slightly (that creates a different sort of noise so isn't a solution) -...
  10. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Just started to get this on and off, usually at very slow speed, and disappears when I push the brake pedal. Front pads and discs were changed about 10k miles ago. What's causing the 'whistling' sound?
  11. Alfa MiTo
    I wonder if anyone as experienced a similar noise as me. For the last few months my 2010 Mito 1.4MA Veloce turbo has developed a high pitched whistling noise on tickover once warm. I say whistling noise because it started a short time after I fitted a K&N panel filter but I appreciate it might...
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, had my turbo apart over the weekend as my 54 jtd seemed low on power - what I found was pretty shocking! The turbo was very worn with damage to the rotor. Now looking to replacing the unit - any other options over buying a whole new unit? £800 is a bit further than I can stretch at...
  13. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi.. I hear a whistling sound coming from engine for a couple of days in the morning when I start engine and it goes on for a couple of minutes until the engine warms up for a few kms drive.. I guess it whistles when the weather is below 5 degrees celcius ( I know its weird) .. But there is no...
  14. Alfa MiTo
    Not sure if this could be some sort of brake rubbing issue. only picked the car up last week but driving home we noticed this high pitch whistling noise as we were getting close to home(after having driven around 20 miles). It stopped every time I touched the breaks, and also hard croners it...
  15. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My GTV is plagued by a high-pitched whistling in the back when driving. What could it be? It's definitely not coming from the speakers, I've checked. (Garage also checked and came up with nothing.) Unfortunately, it's very annoying and affecting my driving enjoyment considerably (ie, provokes a...
  16. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi Guys I've just have the front downpipes replace on my 3.0 V6 GTV BUT there's a annoying whistle on acceleration and an annoying "baffle" on slowing down. Admittedly the exhausts weren't the most expensive but was brand new (it was a Bosol brand) They cost me around £78 for both plus...
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello All, My 2.4 20v JTD has recently developed a whistling sound from the turbo, and a puff of black smoke under acceleration. When cruising normally, there is no smoke, only a puff when under load. My upper intake hose did have a split in it causing a "wooshing" sound but this has now...
  18. Alfa MiTo
    Just noticed a whistling noise coming from my rear drivers side wheel. it got quicker as the car got quicker and stops completely when I apply the brakes. It briefly turned into a sort of whirring sound similar to what you would get with a bad wheel bearing. now, I know literally nothing about...
  19. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello everyone, it's my first time posting on here. :) My GTV (which has 55k miles on itand was built in 2000) has developed said whistling /high pitched noise quite some time ago and I have checked several things already. The noise appears while standing or driving. It only happens wenn the...
