Hello from Quebec

Post by MartyP75 » Mon Jun 19, 2017 4:49 pm

Hi !

I'm the new owner of 1994 Alfa romeo 164 LS, V6, 24v, automatic with only 27 000KM. It's been in storage since 2003. It has Tan leather interior and looks like new. I love the sound of that engine.

Since I bought the car, I emptied the old gaz, replaced the fuel filter, replaced the spark plugs with NGK iridium, check the air filter (still new).
Changed the motor oil and filter with K&N oil filter and Castrol GTX 10w40 oil.
Replaced the auto. trans oil with Castrol Dexron VI (5 liters).

Next week-end, I will change the brake fluid (and maybe PS fluid).

Now my biggest issue is the air bag light is ON and I have to pass inspection, so I downloaded Wilco's program and bought the 2 cables, I will be working on that in the next couple weeks.

Any help is appreciated.

I know the timing belt and waterpump will have to be changed also ASAP (right after inspection and registration.

I'm also the owner of 2 Deloreans and a Jurassic Park Jeep that I build myself.

Welcome, Marty :)

That is a nice find and quite a collection of cars, you have - photos are always nice ;)

I suggest you read the 'sticky' regarding Wilco's program, as it contains some of the problems people have had with connection. Be aware that the connector for the airbag diagnostic is to the right side, next to the A-pillar and glovebox, behind the trim piece.

Just remarkable! Not sure how many pictures you could find on the Internet with DeLorean and 164 (or even some other Alfa) at the same picture :)

Welcome once again and indeed what a great combo of cars! Both score extremely high on design (but I'm expecting that you'll find the 164 a better driver's car). But yeah, who doesn't have a soft spot for the DeLorean; last week I saw Back to the Future on Netflix again and it put the car into my mind again. Although dated it still somehow qualifies as "Timeless design" for me. Like the 164.
