I haven't noticed fuel anywhere else apart from the pictured area, around and below the leak off pipe. But could this cause such a major failure of the electrics? Hopefully the mechanic will have a clearbidea tomorrow. I'd be surprised if a few inches of rubber pipe worth 5 quid are all that need doing.
I think you'd be better off just taking it to your nearest Alfa specialist and getting them to sort it, rather than ordering bits off the internet and getting a mechanic to fit it (who doesn't sound like he knows the cars or their problems too well). Where are you based? We can probably recommend someone. If you were anywhere near Cumbria we'd have this sorted in a day, as we've always got a couple of 1.9 16v cars breaking for spares we have everything on hand.
I'm based in SW London - a bit too far from Cumbria although I'd love to visit there again some day.
Normally I'd go to Phil from Alfacraft but the earliest he could have booked my car in for was mid-December.
1. The non-starting problem turned out to be rusty/dirty battery connectors. Well...
2. The leak off pipe has been changed together with the plastic fittings holding the pieces together - and I just noticed the leak is still there. I believe it's only one section soaked in fuel and will try to refit a new piece over the weekend. Just wrapped a piece of kitchen paper around the pipe - after 45mins of driving it was totally soaked. Could it be something different?
Nice easy fix then. Leak off pipe shouldn't be too bad to do either, its right there above the engine and all simple push-fit fittings with clips. You could try Euro Car Parts, I've had leak off pipe from them before but I think I maybe gave them the reg number of a 1.9 CDTI Vauxhall so they could find the right kit.
Those swirl flaps are going to need doing sooner rather than later most likely, if you fancy a long weekend up here in one of my courtesy cars we could do it for you, but otherwise I'm sure Phil would do a good job and you've got plenty other specialists around, Autolusso in Bedfordshire are only an hour or three up the road, depending on how your revolving car park is behaving. There are some things I miss about living in the south, but the M25 is not one of them!
You need the model number and serial number...

So I did something stupid and blew up my Busso´s electrics - please help me get her back on the road!
I have a 2001 156 V6 Monza (q-system) that has been my daily driver for over two years- just about to hit 150k kms.
I had a few little things to fix up that required me to remove the centre...
I tried looking for some information about this online but couldn't find.
Is it possible to put some part from 166 on 156 in order to change the PCD? basically I want to put 159 wheels (center bore is not an issue).
Alfa Romeo 156 sportwagon 1.9 jtd 77kw 8v
Some strange squeaking sound is coming from the front side of the engine, right below the egr. In the area of the turbo. What could it be? Someone?
