Glow Plugs


Recommended Posts

Hi

My o3 diesel is a pig to start from cold, changed the Battery and cranking is much better, but still takes ages to kick in. I checked the voltage to the glow plugs and the relay holds it on for about 12 seconds, but the light goes out on dashboard after about 3 seconds, so will try waiting longer next time.

I tried testing resistance through glow plugs but my reading wasn't conclusive, so I will fit a new set and let you know how it goes,£8.50 each,very reasonable.

hi mate

do not safe money for glow plugs. it is worth to substitute them when even minor resistance deviation has been disclosed even in winter. THe bearings shells are suffer from such overfueled hard starting. Cheers/Igor
