Glowplugs are electrical heating devices, they don't cary any oil, unless it's not tight enough and diesel? is blowing backthrough the loose glowplug. Otherwise The diesel injector might leak if again something is not properly tight.

Why is my Audi A4 2010 petrol only doing about 300 miles before oil light comes on


2 questions.
1) Is the oil actually low on the dipstick?
If it is, you might have an oil leak, so you would need to look underneath and see. Also look for puddles when you park.
The most common reason for such consumption would be a burst oil pressure switch, or a leaking valve cover gasket.
Either of these will leak lots of oil.
The last possible reasons, which are really rare, would be engine parts defective,( like oil rings), or a leak in the brake booster which would suck oil from the crankcase into the brake booster.
2) If the oil is not leaking out, and the dipstick shows full, you will be needing a new oil pressure switch, or to have the electronics repaired.
God bless your efforts.

Replace glow plug on audi a3 2005


If this is a Diesel engine, the glowplugs would be in a position like a sparkplug. You can replace them as you wish, or replace only the bad one. To determine if a glowplug is bad, you would remove it as you do a sparkplug on a gas engine.

With several of the glowplugs removed, you would place a battery jumper cable on one end of the glowplug, while being careful not to damage its threads. That cable would be connected to the NEG battery cable. The remaining cable would be placed on the Positive(+) terminal of the battery and then you would briefly tough the POS cable to the top of the glowplug.

Do this briefly. You can melt the part. But you need to see if the glowplug will glow. Often the problem with glowplugs is the Timer box. This is the box from where the wires come from to go to the glowplugs.

If you have a glowplug staying dark, or failing to glow well, then it is a bad glowplug. Each should glow the same. That is why you check several at a time to tell what is normal.

I work on Ford diesels and do not know what plastic covers you may have. So just follow the wires that are not on the fuel injectors and that is all you can possibly do.

I have a 2004 ford f250 with a 6.0 diesel that is loosing water in the cooling system but is not leaking. There is no water in the oil. There is the possibility of a little steam in the exhaust like a...


Hello, If this is an Automatic with trans cooling lines, check the Dipstick for water droplets. It is possible to get antifreeze in the trans if the Radiator is leaking between the upper and lower chambers.

But for the most part, it sounds like the water is getting back into the heads. You also should check the Glowplug timer and the glowplugs to see if they have discoloration. The bad cylinders will taint the color of the glowplug. Glowplugs show running conditions just like sparkplugs do.

You will see bubbles in the Radiator tank when the engine runs. There are stop leak products but you have too much compression in a Diesel for them to work. About the best you can do is look at the Glowplugs and hope that all the problems are on one side of the engine. Then you only have to pull 1 head instead of 2.

My 1996 audi A6 has an oil sending unit problem...can you tell me what that might take to fix and why would this show leaking oil? I thought this part was inside the oil pan?


The oil pressure sender unit is located on the oil filter housing.These do tend to leak at times. The warning light for this switch is a red oil can and a buzzer. Replace the switch. If warning light still comes on, have the oil pressure checked. The oil level sender warning light is an orange oil can with oil level under it. This sender is fitted on the bottom of the oil sump and can leak past the seal. If warning light comes on, check oil level. If ok, check for damage to wiring under vehicle. Senders do some times become faulty.

Audi missing at idle, engine smoke, and vacuum leak


audi oil leaks are usually valve cover gaskets. oil run off causes smoke on exhaust downpipes.while vacuum hoses do tend to dry rot with time it may also be the secondary air injection pump (if cold ) or waste gate for turbo.try to use a long hose,put one end on your ear use the other to locate sound. extending mirror and light may help too. missing at idle could mean time for tune up or coil pack failing. good luck

Audi A4 2.5 TDi 2003 Quattro - Glowplugs not getting power


There is a relay which will make a `clunk` noise under the bonnet.
It can be heard a few seconds after the glow plug light on your dashboard goes out.
I would suggest that this is the problem. You may have to buy a new one. Very easy to do.
Quite cheap as well.

Hard starting engine and undetermined leaking of engine oil


Hi Venz

You should check that you are getting power to your glowplug busbar. (thats the alloy bar that connects the power to all the glowplugs).

1.Get a circuit tester and connect the clip to negative earth -
2.Get someone to turn the ignition key to "on" while you hold the tester on the busbar. It should light up for around six seconds I think.
3. If this happens all good than the next step is to check that the glow plugs are turning off correctly while your driving or operating the vehicle.

Also remove and inspect the glowplugs they should be just a nice brown/carbon colour...
They should have no chips out of them or damage of any kind.

These 4D56 engines have a glowplug timer that almost always stuffs out. Then they cause the glowplugs to stay on almost the whole time while driving which stuffs them quickly...

Let me no how you get on
I have a few easy ways to fix this problem!!!
