Glow PLugs

Ok. So I replace my GPR and truck still didnt start this morning so now on to glow plugs. Anything special I need to know. I am following Injector Install Instructions [Archive] - Powerstroke Nation
to get the valve cover off and I am following PowerStroke repairs for the actual plugs.

Are you sure the new relay is working did you check with a meter? Also you should ohm out your glow plugs before you just replace in case they arent bad either.

Well its a new relay so I assume its working. I live in apartment and dont have a multimeter. Beside I got 16 glow plugs at .01 a piece so I dont see the harm in replacing them

Yeah you really should put a meter on the relay because it could be okay and its in the ignition circuit or the pcm circuit. Being that its a 95 there is a good chance your plugs are going bad, but man thats alot of work if they don't need to be changed.

Well definately not as easy as spark plugs its a lot of work taking the valve covers off and if you break a glow plug off thats not good. Let me see if I can find you a writeup but really you should spend 20 bucks buy a meter you just might not have to replace any or maybe only a couple.

My buddy is the Master Diesel Mechanic in my town should I go down to him. Can they test the Glow Plugs like a Injector Contribution Test. In otherwords can he hook the ford computer to my truck and tell me if its my GP's?
