Front brake discs >10/1992

It's getting more and more difficult to find a source that can deliver new brake discs for the Super/FL models. All the known brands (ATE, BOSCH, BREMBO) show nla. I was curious whether same sized discs are used on other cars. It seems that the Alfa 164 brake discs have the same dimension like Fiat ...

Re: Buying advise needed, can't get it out of my head

I prefer the 24V version over the 12V - because I own one :D My car is retrofitted with the bigger air intake runners from a Q4 and it has 200 HP at the wheels (dyno tested)! The 12V engine produces 180 HP, which means max. 140 HP at the wheels... https://i.postimg.cc/rDTjKCcH/Dyno-test.jpg The Q4 i...

Re: 164 Q4 rough when cold and rpms drop slowly

Quite simple calculation: I = U/R = 12V/14.5ohm = 0.83 ampere I = U/R = 12V/15.9ohm = 0.75 ampere Difference is + 0.08A, which means +10,7% current and +10,7% load on the ecu. You have to decide, if it's dangerous or not. But I highly recommend not to replace the original injectors with the newer ty...

Re: 164 Q4 rough when cold and rpms drop slowly

Pro tip: newer Bosch injectors (red) with 4 nozzles for 3.2, GTA, etc. fit nearly out of the box. Good tip to kill the ecu! The red valves have a resistance of 14.5 Ohm, whereas the original valves have 15.9 Ohm. This results in 10% higher current in the ecu, which is not good at all... You could i...

Re: 164 Q4 rough when cold and rpms drop slowly

I would check the fuel pressure before removing the injectors, because it is simple to do. If there is your issue, you will save a lot of work. Further recommendation from my side: Check spark plugs and do the compression test on front bank at first! When the spark plugs are looking good and the com...

Re: 164 Q4 ABS pump

I have a whole ABS unit for a Q4. It's from a '94 model (130,000km) that I parted out some years ago.
The unit is in a garage 200km away from my home and I will get by the first September weekend. My offer is 180€ including shipment (EU).

Re: 164 Q4 rough when cold and rpms drop slowly

Yes, you may have a few issues at the same time. Basics are checked, but: False air leakage is my favorite and needs still to be investigated. Take 2-3 bottles of break cleaner and spray it all over the intake stuff. Fuel evaporation valve could also be an item. Disconnect the hose from the plenum a...

Re: 3 Liter engine of Lancia Kappa versus 164 Q4

Kappa has two versions of the V6 24V. The oldest is comparable to the 164, the later version is comparable to 156, 166 and 916 engines. Since the Kappa use the same camshaft sensor, you do not need to change the right exhaust camshaft! The Super V6 24v has the same engine block as your Q4, only diff...

Re: 164 Q4 rough when cold and rpms drop slowly

There is a false air leakage. Bad injectors don't keep RPM up, they may be an issue of rough idle.
Spray break cleaner at every possible location and listen carefully.

1) You have to wait until the engine is completely cool and first cylinder is at TDC (in ignition stroke!). Only this will give you a hint, if the belt tension is correct or not. 2) Oil pressure seems to be ok. The gauge in the dashboard is not reliable, so you could check the actual oil pressure by...

First invest is high, but you could avoid any engine trouble for the next twenty years. You can spread your search to all 24V models since the engine is the same as for your Q4. The only difference is the exhaust cam shaft of the right cylinder raw and the support of the cam shaft sensor. Quick fix:...

Problem solved. After the engine did not run well with the correct fuel pressure I decided to replace the air flow meter. Bingo! Smooth idle, quick response, clear sound – Alfa V6 as its best… But I still wonder why the engine ran passably with damaged air flow meter plus too less fuel pressure. :? ...
