I kind of agree with this. I have a 2.5 with S cams, free flowing exhaust, and I can definitely feel it on the top end. But my VW GTI will blow the doors off it while using less gas, being more...

I'd say given the difficulty of finding fine examples, the price is quite fair even for the milage. There's really not that many GTV6's around anymore that are roadworthy and don't have rust. Plus,...

I think there's enough independent Alfa shops that there should really be no need to bring an old Alfa to a current dealer in the USA. Heck, when I had my 325i, I brought it to indy shop here in...

That's a good question. OKP seems to have rebuilt ones (to the original specs) as well as aluminum ones. Alfissimo advertises an OEM one but I havne't been able to get in touch on whether it's...

Update - Problem Solved!

Hi All - first I want to thank you for all your input. I'd like to report that, at long last, this "running hot" problem has been solved.

I agree with Gubi. The fans should turn off when the thermo-switch reaches the shut off temperature (I think it's 83C stock). If they cycle very quickly, I think thermo-switch might be bad, or you...

There might be a short circuit going on, or the makings of what will become a short circuit.

Is this a GTV6? Original cooling fans?

The interesting thing is that I've used the A/C in the last two weeks without a burnout - for 30 minutes at a time. I wonder if the clutch can cause a short even if I don't turn the A/C on? The...

Fuse #3 keeps blowing

Hey guys - so far fuse #3 has blown 3 times in the last two weeks. It handles the auxiliary fan (driver's side fan) as well as the electromagnetic clutch for the A/C compressor. Normally, when the...
