When you are doing work on the cooling system of your Alfa GTV6, having the specs come in handy.  To save you time, here are some of the ones I've needed to find in the middle of a job. .

You will note that there is an Alfa Romeo recommended a coolant system sealant.  In the old days, OEM manufacturers would add a coolant sealant to help seal the system on brand new cars!
