Crank sensor? Glow plugs? Want to buy my 156?!
So, 7 months into Alfa ownership - an extra £1400 on top of purchase price already.
Alternator and DMS and Clutch.....
Newest problem - most mornings/times the **** has been sat for a few hours and cooled down, the glow plug warning light doesn't come on. Turning the key repeatedly for about 5 minutes seems to bring it on, at which point it sometimes starts, or sometimes just turns over.
Do this a few times and it fires - glow plug light flashes for a little bit, and then it's fine. I can then stop a few times, etc, but as soon as i leave him for more than a couple of hours, same procedure over and over again.
Getting pretty annoying now - i've been reading this may be the crank sensor - but no-one seems to have had the same symptoms as mine so wanted to double check!
