    I know it's de rigueur to blame the PO for all your woes, but in this case...... I have a newly acquired '89 Graduate and the AC system has been hacked to pieces. I rewired it and had it working earlier today. We were blowing cold air!! Then I went back this evening and just like that the AC...

    I have been searching the forums for information on TSB 80.92.01, Vibration of Dashboard during Acceleration/Deceleration. My car has this symptom and does not have this TSB retrofit. I'm wondering if others have experienced the same and have any tips/comments. At 3000 RPM the dash vibrates...

    The AC compressor in my Veloce comes on, but the interior blower motor doesn't. It comes on sometimes for less than a minute, but goes off. I replaced the radiator a while back, but didn't try the AC until recently. Thoughts? Thank you.

    Hi All, When I first bought my project spider I removed the entire A/C system. Its time for me to sell it and make space in my garage.

    Hello Members! My 85 Alfa Spider Veloce has A/C but no belt running it. I think I'm having a hot start seems the spider will not crank - no clicking at all, after the car is hot. I examined the starter solenoid wires, which seem fine, and seemed to narrow the problem down to the...
