    Alfa GTA
    Please tell me I'm not the only one using a GTA as a daily! Does anyone have any tips regarding cleaning the underside and generally keeping the rust at bay during the winter months Sent from my LYA-L09 using Tapatalk
  2. Creaky suspension worry

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I realise how common this is and theres normally an easy fix which I'm going to try this weekend. (Wheels off, spray bushes with silicone). The upper fronts are relatively new, as are the drop links but the reason for my post is that its started creaking specifically after I went round a...
  3. How many owners would you worry about?!?

    General Motoring Discussion
    Not wanting it but came across this... 10 owners set alarm bells ringing...
  4. Popping out of reverse - should I worry?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello all, we're probably scrapping my wife's R-reg green 916 Spider which is in a poor state underneath and needs a minimum of £750 for its MOT pass. However, we have seen for sale a nicely resprayed Spider in very good condition, the same year and with only 68k on the clock and lots of money...

  6. Undiagnosable Knock / snap + turbo worry

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, Well my experience with an Alfa has been a nightmare. 1.9 JTD Alfa GT 2006 with 104k miles - driven it about 6k miles and spent £3,500 repairing her so far. I have a very strange knock, or more of a snapping sound coming from what I think is the front left wheel. I have taken it to 4...
  7. Anything to worry about

    Alfa Giulia
    Probably just me but yesterday driving home braked - not too hard (reason for braking was there was a red Quadrifoglio parked up just around the corner from where I live - had to take a closer look - wife thought I had gone mad) after that there was an awful burning smell, got on driveway and...
  8. Buying a Spider, Should I worry about the brakes?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I only started driving a little over a year ago and being as I'm in my early 30's I went for a sensible 1.9 GT, love it but as it was my first car I knew I had a risk of bumps and scrapes as I got my road legs. She's done me a good 20K but has also done over 180K total now and I've done so much...
  9. Should I worry about white steam from JTS

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi I seem to get quite a lot of white steam from my 2ltr JTS until engine is almost up to it's 90 degree operating temp.. It's definitely steam with no smell or greasy deposits which disappears immediately it leaves the exhaust. I wasn't concerned when the weather was cold but now its a bit...
  10. New engine in used car. Should I worry?

    Alfa Giulietta
    I have decided to buy a Giulietta 1,4 M-Air 170, and found one at used car dealer. It is from 2011 and has driven 56.000 km. The dealer however has informed me that the engine has been changed at 40.000 km. Should I worry or just be happy that I get a car with a new motor? Kind regards, Claude...
  11. Drivers window staring to creak/squeak as it closes, anything to worry about?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    It happens just as the window gets to the top just before closing. Bit of oil down the window sort it out? is it the sign of something about to go?
  12. Alfa GT climate control no worry!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    All the lights on the climat control buttons light up but no fan blowing at all:(:(:( What would cause this and where should I look? Where does its fuse live? Thanks. :)

    Alfa Giulietta

  14. And you worry about someone opening their door on to your car...

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Today I was in a meeting and heard a helicopter circling. I came out of the meeting and my colleagues suggested I might like to look out of the window and check my car... I think it was an air ambulance but haven't got the full story. I hope the outcome was good for whoever was concerned.
  15. Oil in air filter - should I worry?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Evening all, just done a service on my GT JTD and as I unfastened the air filter box I got quite a few drips of oil. Anyone know what this means? Car has been driving fine. Should I continue driving or get straight down the garage?
  16. 156 engine worry

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Okay -- I have a 1.8 156, 2001 model, with 105k miles on the clock. At beginning of November, while my other half and I took my daughter out for a birthday meal, the engine started to knock. Not loud, but enough to draw concern so I topped it up with oil, which seemed to help. Nevertheless...
  17. Faint sort of rumble noise at very slow speeds - should I worry?

    Alfa MiTo
    Well I'll worry anyway. Been doing a lot of kerb crawling lately - no not for that, we've been looking at houses so trundling round estates at slow speed etc. So a lot of slow speed driving and stop starts. I have become aware of a very faint noise only audible just as you come to a halt...
  18. Binding clutch pedal - anything to worry about?

    Alfa GTA
    I'm probably being paranoid here, but for the last month or so I have noticed a slight "binding" feeling as I release the clutch pedal., like something is sticking a bit as the pedal is released. The clutch (which was replaced 20k miles ago) still feels fine, it doesn't slip. I put some lithium...
  19. Should I start to worry?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    The 159 Ti is just past three months old. Lambda sensor needed replacing after four days. Windscreen wiper came loose after 3 months. Now I'm again getting the engine warning light permanently on with the "Get Engine checked" message. Before this car I had a 156 for 3yrs - not a single problem...
