Glow plugs aren't difficult to check....
The only sure fire way to test them is remove them and put them accross a battery.Put a negative lead to the body and a positive lead to the top section(where the lead connects to when they're fitted to the car).If the tip glows red after a few seconds,the plug is O.K.If the glow plug glows half way up the tip or there is no glow,then it's past it's sell by date.A resistance check when the plug is in situ only tells half the story....
Any how,glow plug problems are not causing the problems in this particular instance,so your really better advised to get an opinion on the other code and go from there....
Webcode,are you out there???
I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
