I am also glad this was brought up. I have a question about diesel in general. How does it fire? When the starter cranks the motor what happens to start the engine. If I remember correctly diesel combusts under alot of heat and pressure? So the piston compresses it and the glow plug adds the heat?
I have seen a video of a powerstroke running without the glow plugs, how is that possible? As I know a gas engine cannot run without spark plugs.
