Cool ill give all that a shot then, sorry for not posting back in a while been chasing other gremlins and getting the tanks cleaned and back up.
Anyway turns out no oil at all in the pan cause when wreaked the oil filter took damage and drained it all while it was still running, also took the bypass valve with it when it went as only part left was the spring.
Right now im working on getting a new filter housing and installing that chasing glow plugs that are melting BRAND F****** NEW valve cover gaskets and other issues.
I appreciate the advice though bill and same to the rest of the posters.
How do you test the glow plugs to see if they are out, i read that in the hanress plug theres obviously 5 pins and outer two are for the respective cylinday GP's and if one gets burnt the adjacent plug is out causing more draw and thus burning the wire on the other.
I just need to know how to test if the plugs are bad, and also while im there im gonna test the injectors which i gather should read right at 2.9 or 3.0 ohms resistance.
Also could one of you fellas be so kind as to take a pic of your glow plug relay so i can see the wires and their config, i changed my harness without paying attention to that and it was a while before i got the new one on from just being busy.
