  2. Coolant choice for S4

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Quick question re coolant choice for a 92 S4 Spider. I have some O'Reilly's 50/50 green and just want to make sure it's ok to put in the Alfa. It says 'all cars' but an Alfa is not just a car... I can't remember what my mechanic topped it off with a couple years ago and I'd rather not track...
  3. Help! My engine is drowning

    Engine Management
    I would be extremely grateful for any suggestions, 1974 spider. I recently found that the engine wouldn't start, and tracked it down to a likely faulty coil. For this reason, the engine hasn't been run for a couple of weeks when I was waiting to receive the coil from centerline. I just put the...
  4. Coolant flush

    Alfetta & GTV6 (1972-1986)
    I'm getting ready to pull the radiator to install a new AC compressor and condenser. I figure it's time to do a full coolant flush as well. Last time I did this I just pulled the lower rad hose. It seems that's wasn't "The Procedure." I've identified the two drain plugs on the block but good God...
  5. 1991 Veloce - Temp guage works only when engine off.

    Electrical, Chassis & Lighting
    I have a problem with my engine temperature gauge, or maybe some other related problem like a sensor. When I start and run my car the temperature gauge will remain unchanged at the lowest engine off level, as if it's not working at all. However, when I turn the ignition off after running the...
  6. looking into a new water pump

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    So my 86 spider graduate has been overheating very rapidly and I have opened the hood and seen coolant all over the place. I figured there wad a leak in a hose that was getting onto the belts or fan. I haven't been able to locate the leak until just recently and it seems like it is leaking right...
  7. coolanr resevoir tank removal

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    I want to remove the resevoir tank on my 79 spider to clean it up. My question is when I refill the tank should I just refill to minimum? While I'm at it would this just be a good time to flush the system, from reading other threads it doesn't sound too complicated. If I flush the system I do...
  8. Spraying coolant from radiator

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Dear All. I have during the last year been fighting trying to find the reason why my '69 Spider is spraying coolant water from the top cover of the radiator. It happens when the enging is warm and running fine. Some facts and findings: - The cover does first fill the coolant spare reservoir...
  9. Clean coolant reservoir solution

    GT (1963-1977)
    I am hoping the BB community can give me some ideas for a replacement coolant reservoir for my GTV. I'm not a big fan of the stock one. I have seen some nice ones in some of the engine bay photos, but it would be cool to see some in one thread. Thanks in advance for the input, Alex

  12. New Alfa Member and Owner

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    I finally purchased a 1991 Alfa Spider. It was a good deal, but it does have some minor problems. Does anyone know the repair and cost for: 1) inoperative driver's window (motor is good) 2) inoperative tachometer 3) coolant gauge is reading average 200F. What is the normal temp? 4) Tire...
