Why are my glow plug light is flashing all the time and on first start in morn it coughs and splutters and smokes bad from exhaust wat is wrong had coolant temp sensor changed today please help im a female...

I think you are referring to a different indicator light. A glow plug is a Diesel engine part and I do not think an American version has a Diesel. There is a "check engine light" which is an indicator of trouble and will display as you described.

Go to a Advance , Autozone, or Oreilys autoparts store. You can ask for a free scan to diagnose your problems. The coolant sensor can relate to a cold start problem. Some models use 2 temperature sensors. One operates the dash gauge and the other operates engine controls.

You will need to know if you replaced the sensor to the dash gauge instead of the engine control sensor. Both use heat to set engine controls.

Glow plug feeder wire gets very hot on 1997 Escort Diesel Van 1.8l

Yes. I'll try to explain this. The glow plugs work by electric resistance. When they are clean and new, they work very well as there is no crud or coating on each part. The material composing each glow plug deteriorates over time something like a sparkplug.

The amount of time it takes to heat up increases as the glow plugs fail. This puts a strain on the wiring feeding the glow plug circuit.

You can test each individual glow plug using auto jumper cables and securing one end to the base and the other is briefly shorted to the top of the glow plug using battery voltage

Be careful-they melt. As you will see, some stay dark(bad) and some glow brightly(good). Or you can just put in all new glow plugs and be done with it.

Remove gauge cluster from 1994 eagle vision

I do not think that this is your problem ,if you smelled some wires burning you had a short under the dash or something , I very rarelly seen clusters go bad find your short first , this may also be why your lights are not working right either

Above the Relay Panel is the Auxiliary Relay Panel. Has thirteen positions in it.
6 across the top, 7 across the bottom.

Across the bottom the Glow Plug Relay is the fourth one over from the left. It is Number 10.

Chevy silverado keeps blowing fuses

Your 20 amp fuse will not blow if glowplug wire shorts. each plug draws 15 amps which is 120 amps total.I think there are in line fuses for them. Try to wring out where each output from the fuse goes, disconnect all and reconnect one at a time till it blows.That should point to your problem process of illumination! Good Luck!!
