Unhappy Glow Plug Warning Light Flashing

Please help, we have a 1.9 diesel, non-turbo Doblo, '53' plate, 128,000 on the clock. It has lost all its power, it runs, but sounds like a pig in a cage, and the 'glow plug' warning light flashes whilst running. I have no knowledge of FIATS, my son has got this cheap with a view to it being his first vehicle.If there is anyone out there who can offer a glimmer of hope please step forward Thanks

Re: Glow Plug Warning Light Flashing

Is it still under third year warranty?

First check no hoses have blown off/split(especially blue one from overboost valve),other than that you could be looking at airflow meter/overboost valve fault.A diagnostic check at dealer will probably be best(quickest)bet.

Cool Re: Glow Plug Warning Light Flashing

As T14086 said check that you have an unlimited mileage warranty.

How old is your son by the way?

HAHA We come with an unlimited mileage/age warranty don't you know it's called the NHS! Except you have to wait a year for your repairs to be done

I just wondered as I'm the youngest on here for the Doblo and I'd like to keep it that way although if your son does have it for his first car and he is young, tell him to expect some stick
