Glow Plug Question


Recommended Posts

I have a 54 plate ford fiesta TDCI and it has begun to give me starting up problems in a morning when it is cold. I believe this could be to do with the glow plugs so i have decided to change them myself but i have no idea where they are located.

Is this a simple job to do and can some show me where i can locate these please ?

Thanks guys.

First expect pain & tears when they snap off!

I would check them first before replacement, they look like very thin spark plugs poking out of the cylinder head. Disconnect the power bar and use a multimeter to check the resistance, should be very low almost a short circuit if there is infinite resistance then it is blown.

Now the pain starts! Check on YouTube for glow plug replacement videos when they snap off.

lets hope its a 1.4tdci, seem to fair better than 1.6 on snapping off, still a pain to get to though at the back. get someone to check for dtcs , should trigger one or more dtcs if glow plugs faulty.
