Our customers ask

Is it possible to replace glow plugs on your own?

It is not recommended to replace the glow plugs yourself. As the engines, operating on diesel fuel are notable for high formation of soot, the glow plugs are covered with carbon deposits during operation and fixed very tightly in the mounting seats. That is why there is high risk of tip damaging during their unscrewing, which can lead to demounting of the cylinder head cover and its expensive repair. Special equipment will be required for removal of fragments of the glow plugs. Moreover, it is very important to follow tightening torque, noted in the car operation manual during installation of new parts: improper installation can cause compression loss in the engine and fast breakdown of the glow plug itself.

Where are glow plugs and glow plugs relay located?

The glow plugs are located in the underbonnet space directly on the car engine. But they not always can be seen by opening the bonnet, as exact location of the components depends on the motor construction. Typically, on diesel engines of modern cars they are located overhead, under the valve cover or decorative cover. The relay of glow plugs is located in the relays and fuses block in the engine compartment or under the dashboard. More information about parts location in your very car you can learn in car technical documentation.

How to check glow plugs yourself?

It is not advised to examine the glow plugs yourself. In order to perform diagnostics you need to be proficient in car electrics, have certain skills and know information about nominal parameters of the parts inspected. That is why it is better to entrust these works to professionals. They will check the glow plugs for wire breakage with the help of a multimeter and perform computer diagnostics if necessary.
