Re: Long time road going 164 Q4 1994 project

So yesterday I did some cleaning of the underbody protection and find no nasty surprises, happy with that :mrgreen: It was a messy job, but fortunately was able to do it outside - and I cleaned up well afterwards also :D Rear wheel wells need some attention, and then some surface corrosion needs to ...

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: Tank venting / periodic hissing noise

Is this happening when you turn off the car? Is it causing problems?

I don't recall this happening for any of my cars, but when opening the fuel tank cover, it can be very different, if there is audible pressure regulation or not...

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.

Had intake pipes rechromed, also for some other Busso V6's :D

Re: Long time road going 164 Q4 1994 project

Brake servo is now removed (and some old mobile phone wiring), so next step will be to remove surface rust in the engine bay and prime it. Will be later, as some of the other cars require some attention before the summer season 8)

Re: Long time road going 164 Q4 1994 project

Got the engine bay cleaned up a bit more and sent the intake pipes for rechroming. The valves seem to be fine, but working on the engine will be at a later point.

A shame about the photos, but great to see that you are still progressing - and you are a lot further than I am πŸ˜‰

Thanks for updating this site as well, it is not that active anymore, but I have it will keep on going, also since it seems that the 164 is getting more attention now as a classic 😎

Re: Long time road going 164 Q4 1994 project

So almost 10 years since I started this thread and while the last couple of years have been very quiet, I have done some more disassembly to get going again :wink: - I finally managed to get the steering wheel off, which was really difficult - Inner & outer door skins are off, no rust, as expect...

Re: Alfa164Diagnostics

You could try and download the free multiecuscan version, where I think it is possible to read data and error codes, but not reset.

If you can read data, then it seems to be related to the 164diagnostics program.

Welcome to the site :) It has been a while since I used the program, as my 164 has not driven for a while, and I use MultiEcuScan for my other Italian cars, so I don't remember the details. I have also not used it on win11, so no input either on that. I do however have problems on my new win11 work ...
