Ford focus 1.8tdci glow plug light only staying on for about 1sec in sub zero temperatures


When this problem occurred this usually means that one or more of the engine glow plugs is burnt out, the decrease in resistance sensed by the glow plug controller drops and this causes the timer to turn off to quickly, have the glow plugs tested and the glow plug controller replaced if needed.

Where are the glow plugs in a 2001 Ford Diesel 7.3 engine


Glow plugs are underneath the valve covers with a single wire going to them. Sometimes the valve cover gasket which carries the wires burns up causing the plugs not to function.

My ford focus desiel engine makes a shaking sound when i start up but once its going seems ok


Time to check the pre heat glow plugs . When it's starting from cold the glow plugs heat the cylinders prior to injuction and if one plug is down you will get this type of symptom. A amp draw test on the plugs will determine the problem . But a set of glow plugs will serve you well . Good luck

I have a flashing glow plug light and my car smells of burning


It's most likely a stuck glow plug relay.

Use caution and check which glow plug is hot/warm when the car is OFF.

When a glow plug relay got stick, It will keep apply power to each glow plug(s).


Glow plug burn about 80-140 watts each.


I will disconnect the battery terminal until you have time to trouble shoot this problem.
