    Afternoon everyone, After a recent saga involving a seized water pump, a broken cambelt and a faulty terminal, my 159 is back in action! Now the only warning light I get is "preheating glow plugs unavailable" or words to that effect. Does anyone have a manual or a guide on how to do this on a...

    I bought my car a few weeks ago and it has been asking for glow plug replacement so I bought 4 NGK plugs, but every garage I go to they won't touch it, they are saying the turbo needs removing to access them. Is this the case? Does anybody know an easier way or a guide I can show to my mechanics...

    Hi everyone, Had a glow plug warning come up on the dash so picked up a new one from Alfa specialist, but there was some confusion as to what should be fitted in the 210 hp Ti engine. There are two different part numbers and if you lay the glow plugs side by side, there is 5mm difference in the...

    I was driving on B-roads, when my car cut out. No electrical power loss, but the engine stalled, causing me to lose brakes and power steering. The "check engine" light came on. I booked it into the garage, and the diagnostics came up with a glow plug error and an injector error. The garage...

    My cars starting with some smoke lately, so I thought I d change the glow plugs to see if it improves things, theyve not been changed since I ve had it. I came across an ebay listing that claims that 1.9 170s have different glow plugs than other 1.9s. I ve searched alfaowner to verify this...

    147 1.9 16V. Out of nowhere, I have been receiving intermittent glow plug error until recently when it became permanent. After a longer drive the other day, it turned off for 1 day or so interestingly - and the car started worse without the error. Once the error returned, car went back to...

    Good afternoon from sunny North Yorkshire. A warning light and subsequent message has appeared on my 159 Lusso indicating that the pre-heating glow plugs are not available. Despite that, the car starts as normal from cold. The car (98,000 miles) is kept in a cool and locked garage when not...

  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Getting this message for the first time. I've read that it might just be an electric issue and the car is starting as usual although not as immediate as it once did. If this is a genuine glow plug problem, is there any risk of damage if I just leave it or will it just fail to start one day? And...

    I had the 'Glow plug unavailable' light come up so duely ordered myself a new set of plugs and at the weekend set about swapping them out. All went well except the plug on cylinder #5 (viewed from the front of the car) was pretty stiff to undo, when I pulled it out it was filthy (see the pic...

    I found this video where we can see how to clean glow plug shaft. You will see that a metal brush is used for scraping dirt from walls. Is this methods safe to use on JTD engine? I'm wondering where all that dirt is going below?
  20. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    My 159 has always been a poor cold starter. I replaced the glow plug relay which held the plugs on longer but didn't really help the cold starting performance much. So I ordered a new set of NGK plugs from eBay. They arrived today and were easy to fit. I had pre-soaked them with penetrating...
