Bleeding the brakes is pretty much the same on any car. You just need to learn how to use your pressure bleeder. Find the video you like best.

The brake pedal goes to the floor and I can not get them to pump up. I just changed my master cylinder.

So, I presume that you had brake pressure before the MC change, ....? What you need to do first is "bench bleed" the MC. There is a inexpensive kit sold for this purpose, get it at auto parts store, the kit has little hoses that hook up to the brake line outputs and route back into MC reservoir. Bleed until you get no more bubbles. Then hook up brakes lines and bleed the rest of the system. DO NOT let fluid level go down in MC, or start all over again. you may never get the system to bleed if you do not pre bleed the mc.

Alfa 147 80000 miles on an 02 plate when warm the idling noise is louder for about 30 secs then dissapears doesn't happen when cold!

If in all other respects the engine seems to be fine, then it's most likely piston slap. It's a sign of a worn engine and the only cure is a rebuild, but in itself, piston slap is just an annoyance rather than a problem. The piston bores are tighter when the engine is cold and so the pistons are more tightly constrained and less able to slap.

But at 80k miles you really shouldn't have piston slap yet, even on an Alfa. I suggest that you take the car to an experienced mechanic to get the oil pressure checked: it could be that the oil pump is failing and if that goes completely you will be looking at a replacement engine due to consequential damage. Used Alfa 147's of that age are usually dirt cheap though, so if you do need a donor engine it may prove to be more cost effective to sell yours for spares and buy another 147.

I have a 2001 Alfa 147 selespeed, you have to keep your foot on the brake or accelerator otherwise it goes to neutral immediately. Is this normal it my first tiptronic and i'm dumb! Please help.

this is a manual car with an electric clutch (no pedal)so if you dont have your foot on one of the pedals it will roll down the hill...this is infinitly more economical than a standard auto box.(fluid drive).and if you want you can change gears like a manual car,good eh....

Ive got some brake but pedal will almost go the floor rebuilt master cylinder

If the pedal is going to the floor there is either a leak in the system allowing air to enter or the brakes weren't properly bled after the master cylinder was replaced leaving air in the system. Either way you need to figure out why air is in the system and get it out.
