Question DieselRX glowplugs

Has anyone ran these glowplugs and had problems with them or are they great and work with no problems. I am getting ready to replace glowplugs, valve cover gaskets, and the wiring harness under the covers. I dont want, just use motorcraft postsI am looking for actual I have used these and will or wont again and why. The reason being is I want to support USA Made products that work but not throw my money away. Thanks in advance guys or gals.

I won't say it.... (you know the MC advice) but, I have to ask,,, Why would you ever want to be the Guinea Pig? If you know what works, and other brands have cause Tremendous Problems for people, you're not content with just Playing it Safe?

Is it just a question of $$'s?

Just put motorcraft in it and be done with it. Is it worth pulling a head if your glow plugs swell up.

I just replaced my glow plugs with a set from Motorcraft along with the valve cover gaskets and harnesses. The #1 and #8 where throwing a check engine light. Now after the repair I have a code showing #6 is bad. Guess I am going back in again.

Its not a money issue its a DieselRX are made by wellman in the good ol' USA and are supposed to be better than the others. When replacing balljoints we all use MOOG not motercraft because they are better and last I wanted to know if the glowplugs were the same I have now gotten about 2 years out of my motorcraft plugs and it is having starting issues so this time I will do everything and wanted to know if anyone else here had supported their fellow Americans and had bought these US made products. I cant speak Chinesse and am to old to learn

I have been doing research all day on trying to find a review on them. No luck. I also like the idea of an American Made product and if they apparently get a hotter thats a plus for me. I think I am going to give them a shot.

I used glow plugs from little power shop in PA. I dont remember what brand but I think they were diesel rx. They were packaged in a blue box and made in USA.

I went to their website and it looks like they make them for the military as well.
its DieselRx® – Improving Diesel Performance with Quality Diesel Engine Parts if you want to have a look!
