Tune Up Parts?

Air, Oil, Fuel, filters............ Motorcraft or Wix?

Glow Plugs............ Motorcraft, AC Delco, Bosch, Autolite? (I seem to remember reading that Autolite had caused problems, no?)

not really glow plugs are pretty good with most big compaines just not filters they tend to crumble and clog up, and motorcraft are designed for the int. engines, but i would say whatever company u get a good price on glow plugs is fine , i have used

most members will tell you to run noting but motorcraft glowplugs, but when i got a price a few weeks ago they were almost 20 bucks a piece. I bought autolite since im a broke college student, but will replace them with motorcraft next time i have a problem. havent had any problems yet with them.

Motorcraft (ZD11) are only $10 a piece at Rock Auto or Partsguyed.

And BTW, anyone ever use partsguyed? They say they only use OEM.

I just got the truck and while it was a 1 owner truck with only 107K on it, I am old school and replace all tune up parts when I get a vehicle. That way I know when it was done and that quality parts were used.

I even ordered a Stancor GPR just because I know the original is on there and it seems to take a bit to long to start.

If Ford parts are the same or just a bit more than Wix (filters) I will use Ford. But there have been tons of research done on Wix and they always place right near, if not at, the top. I am just new to the diesel world which is why I asked about them with the diesels.

i don't mean to insult you but, you do realize the difference between a compression ignition engine and a spark ignition engine right?

glow plugs are not a spark plug equivalent....

-just trying to save you some headache...
