Hi.

A magnet is an useful tool to get a part that is broken or losoe inside a place that is difficult to reach. The plugs are not loose in there.

There is no way you can remove the glow plugs without removing valve cover on this truck.

To give you an idea, here a picture showing glow plugs under the valve cover.

Here a thread showing the repair.

Here other thread showing repair. Lots of pictures.

Regards.

    It is the same even in an F250 diesel, A magnet is not of any use. A lot of info published on the Internet has no fundament. There is no way you can pull out the glow plugs using a magnet.


    Once you remove valve cover, you have to pull off the connectors to te glow plugs one at the time, and to unscrew the single glow plug that is screwed more or less with same torque of a spark plug. Then the plug must be pulled out. Even if the glow plug was not screwed in, it wont come out with valve cover on.

    The procedure in 6.0L is same as 7.3. Only little difference are things to pull out of the way before removing the valve cover.

    An experienced mechanic can do the job in two or three hours. A DIYer will need much more time and attention, depending on experience.
    Here a link showing summary instructions for the 6.0 L (does not matter if mounted on an F350 or on F250, the 6.0 is same engine).

    Hi.

    I have access to the Ford database, and I can post schematics and procedure, but right now I have to go offline. Now I can post a summary description, probably in one or two hours (sorry), when getting back to PC.
    The extract from service documents will be far more useful, but you will have to wait.

    Are you doing the job right now, or it is OK if I post the schematics within 24 hours?

    Hi.

    I am back online.

    Here the procedure with pictures:

    To start, with the 6.0 L engines starting from 2005 you need this tool: 303-1114

    The tool 303-1114 is used to pull out the connector from the glow plug. If you pull the cable you risk to damage cable and connection. The tool is expensive and difficult to find , here more links:

    http://www.denlorstools.com/home/dt1/pag...">303-1114


    303-1114

    The tool is needed also to secure the cables.

    I uploaded below two different PDF documents illustrating procedure.

    Document 1:Click here to start download -Valve cover at page 2..

    Document 2:Click here to start download - glow plugs instructions..

    If those link do not work, proceed from main upload pages down here (documents are same):








    The first link is the document showing injector replacement and removal of cylinder head. You need only to follow instructions up to page 2, where is shown how to remove the valve cover.

    The second document shows how to access the glow plugs and how to use the tool to remove and reinstall them. It shows torque specs (19 Nm -14 lb-ft) and everything.The document is tagged 2007, but it is showing procedure the same engine. The 2006 doc is less detailed.

    If you repute my solution helpful, then please take some times to accept the solution. Providing good repair tips requires time and skills, and your feedback is important for us.

    All the best.

    Ginko.

99 ford f550 diagram on how to remove glow plugs


with the engine "stone cold," disconnect battery, remove valve cover, disconnect glow plug connector, remove glow plug with a 10 mm deep socket, install new glow plug (torque to 13 ft.-lbs.), and reattach connector. After finishing the remaining 3 glow plugs on that bank, clean valve cover, install new gasket, and reinstall valve cover. Do the same thing for the other bank of glow plugs and reconnect battery. Not a difficult job--should take several hours.

Glow plug location on 2005 f350


You do not have to remove the valve covers. The connectors are located just below the valve covers. You can pull the wires off without pulling the valve covers. The glowplugs are at about 30 degree angle. If you need to replace one they are a 10mm deep socket and short extension to get at.

Do I have to remove A/C parts to get at glow plugs


Yes you can remove the valve cover without touching the a/c. It's a tight fit but it can be done. Good luck.

Glow plugs


glow plug wire harness under valve covers often deteriorates causing no glow plug heating. The connectors and wire terminals are available from Ford as a kit or individually. Do not replace the harness. $600!
Still need the fuse panel circuit? Look in owner manual.
glow plugs use a relay too.
