Alfa 156 2.4jtd

Hi All and Help Pease!

I've inherited a 156 2.4jtd (2002) as a company car which is better than the Renault Laguna I had before!
I do have a problem however that I expect has been covered before but I'm new to this so sorry!
Its done about 80k and the motor control system light comes on briefly when accelerating hard through the gears (anything above 4k revs in 1-3 then over 3.5k in 4/5). Its been into the dealer who replaced the ECU which made no difference at all. Its going back in next week with the dealer now saying that it is due to the glow plugs needing replacement.
Has anyone else had this and been able to overcome the problem? It seems that the dealer doesn't really know what is wrong!

Thanks
