Re: 164 owners request

I am in for contacting them, if you find a way.

Have you considered rebuilding the original ones or are they rusted away?

I saw earlier this week on FB that Ed has more Q4's, so might be worth contacting him again.

Re: Q4 ABS pump and module

If you believe it is the pump unit, I would suggest to have an expert look at it.

Otherwise Ed Alfist is my best suggestion for a spare unit.

Re: Long time road going 164 Q4 1994 project

The 164 was a solidly made car in so many ways, something Marchionne never really did understand... Last weekend I got the windscreen out (it was cracked) and got the chrome lists of in good shape. I have new screen and lists. Also the rear screen was removed, but that ended up in a lot of pieces an...

Re: Long time road going 164 Q4 1994 project

So I have taken the bumpers apart - so many rivets in these, but after 30 years and 550kkm I can only conclude that they are well made :) Also the inner roof is now out, as I want to remove the front and rear windshields next weekend, so that it is prepared for rust work, which will hopefully start ...

Re: Abs fuse box

For the Q4 there is a separate fuse for the ABS at the firewall in the engine bay. I don't know if this is different for FWD versions.

Re: Long time road going 164 Q4 1994 project

So prepared it for high pressure cleaning the car underneath, hopefully the coming weekend. This will be a simple clean to see, if more things appear. I am not expecting major things to appear, but I will take it from there and also hear what those fixing the rust spots will say. There is no need fo...

Re: Long time road going 164 Q4 1994 project

So slightly moving forward on the Q4, starting to put rust remover on some spots, then need to figure out how the best way is to clean the entire underside properly to found out exactly what needs to be treated/repaired/replaced. Deadline still some way into the future... :arrow: 2023-11-05 16.17.46...

Re: V6 12V Super automatic - An old dream come true...

This is a set of tools for doing this job

Maybe that will help in figuring out how to disconnect them.

Connecting them again should 'just' be to click them back on again.

Re: Tank venting / periodic hissing noise

I don't know about this, so to understand the system better, you most likely have to look into the details of the system in the workshop manual. The rich mixture could be related to the coolant temp sensor, if it is maybe slowly going bad and of course the lambda probe, but I guess you have monitore...

Re: Allarm Alfa Romeo 164

I have never really used the system in my Q4, so I don't have any ideas, apart from going through the wiring. Maybe something can be found in the manuals on this site.
