Tip

Diesel has trouble starting


hi, if you have any problems starting any type of diesel engine then this is a very good indication that one or more of the glow plugs need replacing, to get you home you can try turning the ignition on and then wait for the glow plug light to go off then instead of trying to start the engine turn it off then back on again, doing this usually gets it started just to get you home but this wont allways work.

Its best you replace glow plugs sooner rather than later as it could leave you stuck without a vehicle.

To change the glow plugs follow these quick instructions.
1. Look where the injectors go into the cylinder head then just under these you will see a smaller plug that will have a fixed wire this wire will be running from glow plug to glow plug this wire is held onto the glow plug by an 8m nut undo this nut on top of all the glow plugs, once undone you will notice that one of the glow plugs has two wires the other wire is the wire that carries the power to all the glow plugs so just remember witch glow plug this goes to.
2. now once you have removed the connecting power wire remember witch way it runs so as to get it back on the right way round it doesnt matter to much but might be a bit tight if you put it on the wrong way round.
3. Now how to undo and remove the glow plugs: To remove you will need a deep 10m socket place this over the top of the glow plug push down to ensure tight fit then undo this glow plug will then pull out (make sure their is no muck around the glow plug that can fall inside the cylinder so just check)
once you have it out its best you replace all the glow plugs as once one goes you will find that the others wont be to far behind.
4. Fitting new glow plugs. When your fitting the new glow plugs put them into their hole and gently screw in by hand to make sure you dont cross thread the thread as this can be a nightmare to put right. tighten the glow plugs in as much as you can by hand then nip them up using 10m socket and extension bar now dont over tighten them as this will damage the thread just tighten up till just after they stop then you should find they are ok.
Refit the wire loom on top of all the glow plugs remembering to fit the main power wire to the first plug make sure you tighten the nuts up properly on top holding the wire in place.
Once you have done this you are now ready to start your vehicle you should now find it starts with no problems.

If you still have problems starting you need to now start looking at things like the diesel filter or even the diesel pump, ill explain about these in my next post ok

Glow plug light blinks while driving . Glow plugs seem to work normal as well as everything else. This started after several fuses were pulled out and checked for condition and put back in.


bad fuse conection. pull them out put some dielectric grease and put back in. if the fuse comes out very easy twist the fuse prongs alittle so it fits tighter.

Glow plug maybe out on 2005 f350 king ranch


2 ways to check 1) have key out of ignition, remove glow plug power rail, get ohm meter on top of glow plug where rail bolts on & base of plug where you bolt it in. check all plugs & should be similar. 2) remove plugs & hook jumper leads to battry, connect - jump lead to base of plug where it screws into the block, touch tip of plug where power rail bolts on with the + jumper lead but do not touch the heating element of the plug extremely hot extremely quick. hold power on for 5 - 7 sec until glow bright red. repeat with all plugs (faulty ones will take longer to glow or not glow at all)

88 f250 diesel ticks hard pumps smoke still starts good and no power loss, took vavle cover off and everything looks ok wat should i check next wat would i look for if i was to pull injectors


The problem is the glow plugs are bad or not coming on. Even though the "wait to start" light comes on, the glow plugs may not come on. I have found when this happens, the light comes on for only 1-2 seconds and goes off. With the engine cold, the light should stay on for about 5 to 7 seconds. The colder the engine, the longer the plugs should stay on. There is one glow plug for each cyl. The plugs are in the "V" of the engine and screwed into head. Only one wire goes to the glow plug and the wire runs from one plug to the next on each bank. You test them by removing them and grounding the body and putting 12v positive to the terminal. The tip should glow red hot like a cigarette lighter. There is a glow plug relay behind the air intake horn which also could be the problem and there is a engine temp sensor in the circuit also.

Vauxhall vivaro wont start cold


Sounds like a faulty cold start assistor. On top of the engine you will find an aluminium housing with four things that look like glow plugs screwed into it. These 'glow plugs' are only available complete with the housing fron Vauxhall. Approx £70 +
Airbag light is probably a fault with the seatbelt pretensioner.
Check the wiring under the seats for damage or perhaps the plugs have pulled apart.
