WHAT ARE GLOW PLUGS?
Glow plugs are an automotive heating device used in Diesel engines. A glow plug’s job is to aid the diesel engine in starting. Plugs are more vital on cold days.
Plugs are metal, pencil-shaped, 1/4 x 32-thread, automotive devices that emit light in order to aid diesel engines. Plugs have a similar heating element to a toaster.
GLOW PLUG HISTORY
HOW LONG DO GLOW PLUGS LAST?
WHY DO PLUGS FAIL?
Most plugs last until their estimated due date. If by chance, they don’t, it could be because of the engine overheating, the pistons are damaged, your valves are broken, or plugs erosion. These are all the most common reasons that plugs would fail.
Erosion could be caused by injectors dripping down onto the plugs, causing them to slowly deteriorate. Also, if all of your plugs magically fail at the same time, it is because something is going on in the engine department of your vehicle.
