Glow Plugs 99 7.3

Is there an easy way to check if you have a bad glow plug with a tester light?


My powerstroke has to cycle 3-4 times in the cool weather and then starts rough but clears up within seconds. I figure it's the glowplugs but don't know the easy way to check them. I don't have access to a reader.

It could be the selinoid that runs the glow plugs you can check that. lt's ontop of the engine by the fuel filter l think you have to pull glow plugs to check them not sure though.
