There is definitely a sump plug but I can't tell you exactly where.

I'd never rely on sucking the old oil out anyway as an unhealthy amount of deposits will be left behind.

You have to drop the undertray to reach the sump plug

Alfa 159 1.9JTDM

Just had the same message appear on my '07 plate Alfa 150 1.9JTD a few weeks back, thought it was just a sensor fault or something then found this thread. Alfa confirmed there is a degredation monitor checking the oil ( why in't this in the manual)

I had assumed my oil had been changed at both my previous services and esp. at 38k mile (2 years) service in June! Evidently not and now I need an oil change for an extra 108!

Not sure if I have made it to 44k miles without a single oil change now! Will need to check my first service record as this was at a different Alfa garage (went bust) to the latest one being used which is Dutton Forshaw Cardiff.
