If only 3 plugs heat, probabilly one of the two pre-heat relays is defective ( or it's command ).
The relays are located left in the engin compartment, just in front of the battery and in the battery box. They should have green connectors.
If there is no fault found at the relays, but on their 'command', the pre-heat control box is located IN te vehicle under the steering column. ( Black plastic box with 4 screws, and a 16 or 20 position connector for engines with EGR )

Hope this explanation helps

glow plugs are activated if look on the dash when you turn the ignition just before cranking and you should see a light that stays on for several seconds then goes out and then you should crank the engine ! sometimes when its really cold or the glow plugs are worn try turning the ignition on and off each time light goes out 2 or 3 times to get more heat on the plugs then start ! if this doesnt work then glow plus and system needs checking !

2003 tdi, 54 k miles, bought car new, had manifold cleaned, new glow plugs and harness. car has been driven only short commutes for 3 years. Heavy blue smoke at startup, then it clears right up. No...


valve seals are going. when car sits excess oil gets past the valve seals then when you staRT up it burns the oil off then runs fine and no more blue smoke. It is fine to run like that had the same in a dodge caravan 1996 6cyl. ran another 100 000 km. and still ran fine got rid of it for other reasons.

if you cant get it out wore case is head off to repair but there are several mobil thread repair people here in adelaide (australia) that could get it out without removing head (drilling out and even fitting heli coils if thread damaged in head) are there any listed in your yellow pages? or ask a local mechanical workshop or engine reconditioner who they use

Dash board light came on, says ETC PWR?


"ETC PWR" means the "power mode" switch on the tranny is on. this lets the tranny rev above 3000 RPM, and is normal. look for a button near the center console and punch it. as for running rough, have someone check to make sure a coule of wires didn't get switched. also, you shoulda changed the plugs, too.
