how do you know your glow plugs are bad? How long should they last? If I don't plug my truck in when it is cold it will not start.
glow plugs can last 50k-250k. when they go bad you will know, your truck won't start when it's cold. I don't plug my truck in during the day and it's only had a high of like 15 aroud here and have had no problems starting, also have forgotten to plug mine in at night and it got down to low single digits and it fired right up. The only reason I plug mine in is because I don't wake up early enough to let it warm up so i plug it in and it's added bonus that the heater is warm right away.
So to answer your question no you don't need to plug it in if your glow plug system and your engine are in good operating condition.
