Suggested reads about Glow Plug Replacement

What do glow plug replacement services include?

When you begin to notice that your diesel engine is taking longer than usual to start or if you see black smoke coming out of your car, that's usually a sign that you need to replace your glow plugs. With Airtasker, you don't have to stress yourself trying to make an appointment with a repair shop. All you need is one post, and a local Tasker will come to your location with the right tools and equipment for a glow plug replacement job which typically includes:

Glow Plug Removal

The replacement process starts with removing the old glow plug from your vehicle. Using the right tools, your technician will first unplug your battery and remove the valve cover to reach your glow plugs. Once located, they will carefully disconnect the electrical wirings, unfasten it, and remove it from your engine.

Glow Plug Replacement

This step involves manually screwing the replacement glow plugs into position. Your tasker will make sure that they're tightened just enough to fit into the engine. Afterwards, they will replace the valve cover if required or simply put them back before reconnecting the battery to power your vehicle.

Glow Plug Testing

Once your new glow plugs are installed, and your vehicle is up and running, your technician will test your new engine using a scanning instrument or a multimeter. They will also conduct a short test drive to ensure your vehicle no longer exhibits any symptoms and is now back in optimal condition.
