oily glow plug


Recommended Posts

I think i know the answer to this one but want to double check.

I decided to replace the glow plugs cos they are about 4 years old.

I replaced no4 cos its easiest and it looked ok.

No3 however was covered in unburnt engine oil.

Why ??

No 1+2 are still to do cos it started to pour down and i wimped out.

It's duff.

the "clean" ones have burnt all the oil/diesel off of themselves, but the duff ones won't. stick a multimeter across it, you'll find it's open circuit.

oooohh ... Thats not the answer i was expecting.

Interesting thought.

I thought the answer would be valve stem oil seals goosed on no.3 but not on no.4 , so a head off job.

It was definately engine oil and not diesel.
