Inside Line: Autoelectro

Feedback from Autoelectro’s technical team, regarding issues on the Alfa 159 (Petrol and Diesel models)

The Starter Motor on diesel applications is prone to failing prematurely due to fluid/oil ingress, and on petrol models a fault with the fuel pump relay can lead to excessive cranking resulting in the Starter Motor overloading and being burnt out.

The Alternators have an issue on both petrol and diesel models with a noisy pulley or clutch failure in the pulley which can usually be attributed to a faulty tensioner, or a worn belt.
