Glow plug questions

Once you got the valve cover off is the gasket re usable? Do you need to put silicone when re installing it? Is it hard to replace the glow plugs? Nything special you got to do? Thanks

The gasket is reusable, but make sure you inspect it and that it is good condition. I use a little RTV silicone around the middle of the gasket to get a good seal. The glow plugs are really easy to replace, just like doing a spark plug. Hope that helps buddy. I'm sure someone else will be coming around to help also.

i replaced mine just to be sure. but i dont think you need to replace them. the drivers side is a piece of cake. the passenger side i had a little more trouble with. the valve cover is harder to get out of the way. you have to manuveur it a little more.. i think i took some of the hoses off and took them out to get to it easier. even still it was more difficult on the passenger side. good luck with it.
