I had a similar issue with my Coupe when I was crossing the Alps last year. I was convinced it was a rubber smell but checks revealed no rubbing and it didn't really explain the loss of power. Once back on flatter ground it disappeared as quickly as it arrived and my best guess is it was oil temperature due to the extreme inclines, backed up by an increase showing on the oil temp guage

So is it worth geting the whole tipo head for 150e and put it on a coupe?

Since 1995 have had a 164 2.0 TS Super, 155 2.0 TS, 156 1.8 TS & 2.4 Mjet, 147 1.9 Mjet, 166 2.0 TS & 159 2.2JTS. Not had an Alfa since the 159 as the 159 was a disappointment compared to the 156 overall. Found the petrol Twinnie's more fun compared to the JTS petrols. Drove a Giulietta last year ( MultiAir ), did not like it and no foot rest next to clutch pedal.

Excellent. I’ll chase them for an answer to see if (and how many) we would need.

Nigel, the car is in Lichfield and I need to get it to Pauls,

Had a look through How To's but cannot find info on how to remove the key barrel, is this an easy process ?

Also Nigel, my cars heavily modded, will my mapped chip just plug directly into the new ECU ?

Removing the ignition barrel is only easy if you have a key - once you're into the car, you will need to remove all the steering column plastics and some of the electrics (stalk controls etc) and then remove the whole ignition switch assembly from the column - not a five minute job...

Yes - plugging your mapped chip into a new ECU should work fine

Top Gear is really rather crappy these days, apart from the cars. Blanc the Yank is off after this series. No surprises there, I'm not going into specifics. There was a time, there was a time. driving

Sounds like you haven't fitted the release bearing properly.

Fit the bearing to the release arm. Refit gearbox and tap the release arm to engage the bearing into the cover plate. Remember that this is a pull type clutch

Yes that’s a real shame.

I read a decent article about the EP3 Type R development and how it was honed in the roads around Swindon to make the near perfect British hot hatch.

I already bought the DS2500. I decided to use the LE wheels, not the spacers.
I expect to have everything ready by the second week of March. I will post the results and also the total costs.

Last year was okay, in september though. But the club presence made it into something wonderful all those years with a chance to see everyone.

I know, I know!

I think it's testament to the car that we find it so endearing, despite the rotating monstrosities. It feels a bit like someone forcing Frank Bruno to wear ripped skinny jeans.

As Joe says, there's a thermo switch in the side of the radiator which controls the fan coming on. You have a dead thermostat - they stick open - and the bad news is there are no replacements available unless you are very very lucky and fine one at the back of a dealer somewhere.

There is a heat exchanger between the oil and water, on the back of the mounting block for the filter - the water goes down those two pipes on the front of the engine. So as a rule, when there's a lot of oil and water movement, the oil tracks the water temperature, within a few degrees.

The thermostat should open at 79 to 83C, and the fan normally comes on at 103C (or at least, that's what the internal water temperature tends to be, when the fan's running). The engine will hold at that all day, so don't panic about overheating unless it goes higher. Though you should make sure you have the correct level of coolant and that it holds sufficient antifreeze.

There have been a couple of attempts to replace the thermostat - BBR did one recently - involving removing the thermostat capsule from the inside of the thermostat (i.e. bashing it out!) and using an inline thermostat in the radiator top hose.
