Couple of weeks ago my glow plug light came on and i started to worry a little.
Since then i found out that if i put my foot down hard and accelerate the glow plug will come and i start to lose power.

I've change the fuel filter and still the same problem.
Do i need to get the fuel injectors check out, not sure what to do now.

Does any one use the Fordiag diagnostic software, is it worth investing?.

Thanks for reading this thread

Sometimes the fuel filter may appear fine but if it's not seated properly you may have air leaking into the fuel lines causing air bubbles in the system.
It may be worth checking the air filter too, it sounds like the engine is being starved of something.
