From all that i have read, yes, that could cause hard starting/ sometimes no starts. If i am correct, the two outer pins control two cylinder's glow plugs, then the two in from those control the injectors for those two cylinders, and the center is a common ground, so these could very well contribute to your no start. it is also not uncommon for the two plugins on the inside to start arcing out and melt as well. Hope I could Help!

Axel.

Well I decide instead of just replacing those connectors I can get the whole uvch and two pigtails for 58 bucks in a kit so I'll probably just do that

So it is the Dorman kit


They are known for poor performance as the fittings are concerned. Things like the pins in the pigtails not actually touching any metal and causing the same issues but from a different source after install. Pins not tight enough to make good connections under heat to the VC plugs. Stuff like that.

Some Dorman kits are perfectly fine. Use a meter and test everything before you do the install. Easy job and if things look good you should be all right.
