  1. 156 Selespeed wierd behaviour

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm new to this forum so if I post in the wrong section I apologise. I've been driving my 156 Sportwagon Selespeed for a couple of years with no real issues, but today a strange thing happened. I think it was in 3rd gear (manually operated) when the transmission started making a loud whirring...

  3. Wierd Moon last night (27/05/16)

    Non Motoring Images
    Driving home last night the Moon was blindingly bright, so much so that I had to lower the visor in the car to shield my eyes. I'm presuming that it was caused by a combination of the Moon being relatively low in the sky, and there being a light mist hanging in the air which must have refracted...
  4. This website has gone wierd on my iphone

    General Alfa Discussion
    Maybe it's just my iphone 5 as no one else seems to have commented, but since this morning Alfaowner has gone to a completely different layout. It's got adverts all over it and all headers are in massive boxes. I hope it's a glitch and not the way the site is going on iphone because it's...

  6. Bit of a wierd one, regarding remote locking

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi fellow Alfaheads, I have a Nov 2000 156 CF2 2.0L T.Spark, recently repaired/ replaced the micro switch on my red key. I posted a thread a few days ago on step-by-step on how to fix this if your red or black flip key has a faulty lock switch, Back to the agenda, when locking/ unlocking the...
  7. Wierd paintwork problem

    Alfa GTA
    Hi, since I've owned the car there's been a bit of paintwork that has slowly got worse.. almost like a slight bubbling / erosion effect, but it's down the side of the car.. not arches or anything. It's A 147 and only happenig on 1 side. You can see some photos here (hard to properly photo it) -...

    Hi All, I have a propblem since returning from holiday to find the battery on my car flat as the proverbial.......... On reconnecting a newly charged battery, everything works fine but I have the 4 way flashers going off whenever I go to open the door(s) and the red LED on the dash is...
  9. Please, please help - jtd 10 valve cam sensor wierd problem

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    This problem has foxed three people so far; my 2001 10 valve jtd has the dreaded engine management light on, with a fault code for the cam sensor showing on the Alfa diagnostic. But Simon at longstones, my local dealer has changed so far the cam sensor, cam belts, shimmed the tappets, tested the...
  10. Is my ecu dying? This is a wierd one!

    Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    Ok guys, I could sure use some help with this - my beloved 156 2.4 jtd Sportwagon has got a bizarre fault - the cam sensor is reading a fault, and I have the proverbial engine management light on. This is combined with a pronounced ticking noise from the injectors, the noiseiest being nearest...
  11. Wierd starting issue

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Anyone seen this, for the last week, my GT JTDM has been starting intermitently when you switch the ignition on, so you switch it off then back on and the starter motor will suddenly churn round when it refused to do so on the previous switch turn. 2 days ago, it stopped completely, but after...
  12. Wierd

    South Africa
    Knowledgeable, My 156 TS has a rather hilarious fault. The overhead interior lights, watch, radio and climate control decided to stop working, but with reverse engaged for about a minute and the key on MAR/ON they all come back to life. :cheese: If only it was possible to drive with reverse to...
  13. Wierd gear and clutch problems

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    GT JTD 2007 My GT has always had clutch pedal issue where its varies from very heavy, to spongey to light as a feather, this is often affected by a) motorway/fast driving and/or b) driving over potholes!! I know this is a known issue and i belive the fix is to grease a part of the mechanism(?)...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT

  17. Another wierd one...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Why is my windscreen iced from the inside? :-s
  18. GT wierd clutch noise

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi Guys! I have had my GT for nearly 3 years now and am massively happy with it. However just lately it has developed a squeek noise when you press the clutch in, and seems to be heavier to operate. I dont think its the clutch as the bite is still there and there is no squeek. I have been to an...
  19. Electrical wizard required: Wierd hood and handbrake light behaviour

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My handbrake light is still on (before you say it.. the fluid level is fine). It doesn't appear to be the handbrake light switch - setting and releasing the handbrake actually changes the brightness of the handbrake light suggesting the handbrake switch is working and creating an extra feed for...
  20. Wierd Mito QV test drive...

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi all, I finally got around to trying out a QV Mito today for a decent test drive with my partner and, although I was generally impressed with the car, I was a little disappointed to find that when I pushed on in the car, particularly in first, the car seemed to hit a rev limit at around 5 - 5...
