You've left a wire off sumwhere or there is an earth fault. However it may be prucent to turn the engine over by hand as it's recommended that after the head comes off the bottom end gets rebuilt as well coz when the belt snaps it can lock the crack up and put a piton thru the block . Don't wanna be the bearer of bad news but i've seen it happen it ain't pretty.

Low engine comoression on alfa 91spider

Gates, the compression could be low for multiple reasons. A common one is a leaky head gasket. Do you have low compression on all cylinders? Are compression readings the same for each cylinder? How did you test the compression?

Let me know the answers to the above, and we'll see if you can narrow the possibilities.

How do i tighten belts on alfa romeo 156

If you are talking about the serpentine belts, you can tighten them from the crankshaft pulley. You will need a large sprocket for this. Put the sprocket in and then move the pulley. This will give you the slack you need to put the belt on.

My 156 sportswagon is burning fuel badly i put 2 gallons in and only got 31 miles for this i can hear an air leak coming from top of engine would this be a likley cause for such poor fuel consumption it's...

an air leak would weaken the mix of fuel to air so giving you better fuel efficiency but a poor power output.
was my last answer not to your liking, re **** fuel consumption on all fiat/alpha cars.but it is true, ask any owner........14.7 average mpg.......£205 road tax.....(tax it for a year and quadruple its value...)

My car alfa romeo timing belt was cut and valves dameged , after replacing the timing belt and at 3000 rpm check engine comes on and the rpm slow done what is your point of view the problem

If you broke a timing belt while it was running you bent valves and the heads need to be worked on.You probably have a cylinder with no compresion and the computer is sensing it.

I cant remove my front headrestson my alfa romeo 156 tspark

At the base where the head rest forks go in there's usually a side clip which you just push in. If not they may just need some brut force, some of the Recaro leather seats that Alfa used were like this! Hope this helps.

Where to find timing tools for '87 alfa spider 2.0

You can do it the old fashioned way. The timing belt has to be off to do this. The top belt gear has a hash mark by the nut holding it in. It has to be top center. Then you have to take the first spark plug out and stick a long screw driver inside there. You will need two people to do the next step. You then, Turn the bottom gear clockwise until you can feel the first head come all the way up. The second person holding the screw driver will know when its all the way up. Then you stop. You then put the Timing belt back on. You cannot move the gears at all when you put the belt back on.
