SOURCE: glow plug timer fuse on 1984 Ford F 250

not a fuse ! Its a 60 amp circuit breaker under dash . If your glow plug timer is not working it most likely needs replaced ! it is located on top of the engine behind the air intake . if you don't know where it is , ask for the diagram at your auto parts store . they will also give you the exact location of the breaker and print it out for you .

2.7tdi newish heat plugs,glow light stays on ,smokes on cranking ,won't start

the glow plug circuit may be faulty, check glow relay and timer function, or connection to glow plugs, the glow plugs may also be faulty, if all is well with them, then you may want to check the fuel injection pump it may have a worn hydraulic head. To start you can try some quick start fluid but disconnect the glow plugs first,

Why the diesel pump nissan hardbody is not getting the power

DIESELS DO NOT START FOR ONLY 3 REASONS.. 1. not getting fuel. 2. Glow plugs not working.. 3 major engine damage
1. air in system.. like you ran out of fuel, Fuel filter clogged, lift pump not working, no fuel in tank, Bad fuel. .. 2. glow plugs..check the wire at the glow plug to see if it has power. If it does not check the relay and fuse. glow plugs usually do not all go bad at one time. 3. major engine damage.. you would normally notice this by the noise the engine makes or it would not turn over..

Nissan terrano 2.7td. starting problem

Glow plugs are the answer to cold start problems.
Check that they work using a multimeter if you know how.
Otherwise connect a jumper cable from the hot terminal of the battery to the glow plug bus very careful not to ground the lead in any way to the head while doing this.
If the engine then starts easily with little smoke, the problem is with the relay or the timer of the glow plug circuit.

I'm working on a 1985 6.9. the problem is that it will not start with out a little small spray of ether. After that it will take right off. we replaced all the ijectors and bleed out. any idea wat might be...

My initial thought is that the fuel is bleeding down because the "O" rings are leaking or the fuel lines are venting. This causes a dry start.

You should check your glow plugs and the timer for the glow plugs. In particular the timer should stay on longer for colder weather. I understand that since 1985 Ford has come out with a heavy duty timer that will stay on longer and really heats the glow plugs.

Also check your battery voltage. The glow plugs can't get hot without proper voltage.
