Hi

Tricky to say from here..

Ok.. simple test

1. As normal :

Turn the ign. To MAR - WAIT until curly glow signal goes out

Then
2.
TURN OFF

Do the glow warm again.. then Crank engine


If it starts better its probably plugs


I can tell you from painful experience.. if its struggling in July.. you have only got a couple of months to sort it..


Plugs on the 1248 motors are small and delicate..

Lots of heat..and some penetrating lubricant

Plenty of info on here

https://www.fiatforum.com/tech-talk/471718-glow-plug-power-2.html

Once youve removed the plug leads.. measure the voltage with a meter

Without power here.. it wont warm the plugs


Grande punto and Tech sections contain plenty of info Panda too
