have you changed your fluids/filters lately??
have you used injector cleaner lately??

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo

yes i do both on every 3,500 to 4,000 on oil and use fuel additive every fill up. fuel filter every 10,000 the truck has only got 93,000 on it and has not worked very hard it pulls a travel trailer locally. its the no power on the glow plug side of the relay thats the problem now.

There should be power on one big wire and one little wire, when the key is turned on the computer should ground the other little wire which will energize the relay and put power on the other big wire. Is the relay clicking when the key is first turned on? Do you have power on the one little wire? Is the computer grounding the other little wire?

Ok i went out this morning first start of the day and the relay worked i had 11.5 volts on glow plug side. Yesturday when i tryed to check it it was after the truck set how ever long it took to change the relay 30 minutes or so. Question it was 60 out side and i had the volt meter under the hood and had some one else turn the key thats when i got nothing dont the glow plugs burn every time you start the engine just different lengths of time depending on temp. Thanks for the help Im going to run the test agin in the morning.

Not certain but I believe if the is over a certain temp, like around 100 or more, then they may not turn on at all. If the motor is room temp then they will turn on. They will also stay on a lot longer than the wait to start light stays on.

Sounds like you got it worked out. If you ever need another GPR I highly suggest using the HD Stancor model. If you used the 109 from Napa I haven't seen them last much longer than a year or two.
