As a side issue, is that stuff worth the money?
you know now you mention it my alfa did exactly the opposite.
bought the car 9 months ago and the glowplug light would flash for
about 20 sec after starting.got so use to it that i ignored it, and only
last week did i notice it had stopped.only thing that i can think of
that i have done is 1.ran 2 lots of injector cleaner [which shoud'nt effect the glowplugs.
and 2 had the car plugged in to check for another
possible fault [negative]and now don't see the glowplug light flashing
please note my car has done 100,000 miles and going through its
history it had a new set of glowplugs fitted at 72,000 miles and also
some work done to the wiring side of the glowplugs?
hope this is of help.
