Glow plug problems. Engine won't start.

2500cc TD Diesel engine, 82000 mies on the clock. Fitted glow plugs five weeks ago. Now they don't seem to be working. This problem occurs regular. Every six months.  When first fitted the engine bursts into life and then over the following weeks things start to get worse. Until it won't star,t without fitting new glow plugs.

    Hi guys , I have a 1998 Mitsubishi NL Pajero td with the same problem and can't seem to find an answer. For some reason the glow plugs are getting up to 14 volts during the post start warm up phase.

Did you ever find a solution to this? I have a 2000 Hyundai Galloper (basically the same car) and I am having the exact same problem. I have replaced the glow plugs 3 times in the past 12 months.

Check and make sure your glow plug controller is putting out voltage to your glow plugs, make sure voltage to your glow plugs is cycling. if it is not, at the front of the engine there is a temperature switch, if this switch is not working your glow plug controller will not work. also make sure you are getting diesel to your injector pump, if you are not, there is a high pressure switch at the back of the engine right behind the glow plug controller, if this switch is not working, your injector pump will not get fuel. also make sure both batteries are fulley charged, if one is low, your diesel will never start. you can jump out these switches, if your truck starts after bypassing, just make sure to replace them. i have a 1993 silverado C3500HD 2WD. good luck!

Toyota hilux 3ltr diesel,i put new glow plugs in about 3 weeks ago & it fixed the starting problem going fine.now it just started not starting when it is cold checked wiring has power to glow plugs...


Double check your fuel filter and replace as necessary. Also replace your coolant temp sensor. I would also pull out each glow plug and bench test with heavy cables and make sure they do glow red. It very well could be a couple of the glow plugs have failed due to quality. Let me know what you find.

1996 1.9 diesil glow plug light keeps flashing hard to start replaced one glow plug in garrarg one week later same problem


Probably have one or more glow plugs bad...- There is a testing method, and I think they are easy to replace - when the temperature outdoors changes, you'll almost have to replace them, as you'll about never get a diesel started in the cold otherwise -...

2004 diesel hard to start when cold


It sounds more like the glow plugs, the older models had trouble out of the module, but the 6.0 is pretty safe from all those problems. And don't forget to use the correct fuel additive for diesel engines, it helps .
