Top Glow Plug Replacement related questions

Some clear indications of damage are engines having difficulty or being unable to start and at the same time, black smoke coming out with each attempt. Additionally, even though you have successfully started your vehicle, a faulty glow plug can result in poor acceleration and less fuel efficiency.

Technically, you can still use your car even if you have a bad glow plug. However, it's not advisable as it can cause engine misfires and further damage in the long run. It's always best to get your vehicle checked by an expert to ensure your safety and peace of mind while driving.

Replacements are a straightforward process of removing the old glow plug, replacing it with a new one, and doing a final test on your engine. In general, it can take around one to two hours, depending on whether your valve cover also needs replacement.

Airtasker can help you find a nearby expert who can readily work on your vehicle at your earliest convenience. All you have to do is post your task, sort out your schedule, then you can work on other things while waiting for a Tasker to arrive and replace your old glow plugs. You can also manage your ideal glow plug replacement cost as you set your budget to avoid overspending on unnecessary fixes!

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 them, and remove them 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.
