Re: Help us keep the site up

A good idea :)

For my part, this site is so valuable for 164 owners that it is worth supporting financially.

Re: Throttle position sensor. 164 Q4 with EGR.

I am going to the garage this weekend, will try to remember measuring this! Even though it is without EGR, I think it is the same part.

Re: Alfa 164 Q4 3.5 'Savali' progress thread

We love Italian cars, so bring on some photos and progress :wink: Also traffic is a bit slow in here, so it might attract more people.... Congrats on the GTV, also a great car and I am sure that it sounds nice too! Maybe the new Q4 owner is writing on the Dutch part of the register, they are general...

Re: Throttle position sensor. 164 Q4 with EGR.

I thought that the check engine light was not connected in the Q4, it isn't in mine. Have you tried unplugging the air mass meter? What about spraying start gas around the intake pipes to see if idle changes? Are you not able to download Wilco's diagnostic SW? I just tried downloading from the first...

Re: Long time road going 164 Q4 1994 project

I replaced the steering rack 4 years ago in the Q4, so it is not my plan to do that now. I had them reconditioned, so that they are available to me and maybe it is needed in the 8.32 soon, but I have not looked at specific parts yet. I cannot remember if it was on this site or AlfaBB someone wrote a...

Re: 164 Q4 ABS problem (warning light on)

I guess checking wires to the unit is a good thing to do (I think the test cases describes what to do there). This should also show you, what is suppose to happen when applying 12V in the right places, to see if the relays behave correctly or not, that was what I did - trial & error way ;)

Electronic shock absorbers & steering racks reconditioning

As mentioned somewhere else I shipped a set of Q4 shock absorbers and steering rack for reconditioning in Poland. They are now returned and looks really good :) Still not mounted in my car, so I cannot comment on performance. You can read more here and see photos: http://alfaromeo164register.com/vie...

So after some transportation time (the box from Poland went to Spain with GLS...!) I have received my first Christmas gift :D And last year I brought a set of shock absorbers to South Africa for reconditioning, I will pick them up tomorrow - that is my 2.

I have no experience with diesels, so can't provide info. I suggest you google it, as diesel owners of other products must have experienced similar issues.

Re: water floyd

If you are sure that it is water, then a plugged drain is very likely. If it has a sunroof, even more likely to be the problem.
