    Understanding Glow Plugs

    Glow plugs are pencil-shaped devices that help diesel engines start. They serve as the diesel equivalent to spark plugs in gasoline engines. However, unlike spark plugs, glow plugs use heat to ignite the engine. In cold weather, glow plugs are particularly crucial, as diesel engines often face ignition issues when temperatures are low. Diesel engines require the air to reach a certain temperature for fuel ignition, but they tend to absorb heat when they are cold. Glow plugs address this issue by providing enough heat for the fuel to ignite. They usually need a short amount of time to warm up before they can perform effectively. During this process, glow plugs emit a small light or glow, which is why it is often called “glowing.” Once the glow plugs are warm, drivers should be able to start their diesel vehicles successfully.

    Importance of Glow Plug Replacement at GM Specialist

    Without functioning glow plugs, a diesel engine will struggle to ignite fuel in the combustion chamber. Over time, glow plugs wear out and need replacement. Faulty glow plugs may fail to ignite the fuel in your engine, causing hard starting, rough idling, misfiring, and unwelcome smoke emissions. If your glow plugs are failing, bring your vehicle to GM Specialist for a replacement. Signs of bad glow plugs include hard starting, rough idling, a misfiring engine, or white smoke. When these symptoms occur, our service staff will inspect your glow plugs and install replacements. Our knowledgeable team is equipped with the right tools for the job and is eager to help.
