Glow Plugs

Well I had a code pop up saying I have a #6 Glow Plug circut failure....what exactly does this mean? Is it something simple I can do myself or does it need taken to the dealer? Sorry this is my first 6.0L and first diesel pickup...thanks.

no,you can service it yourself,its a deep well 10mm and its right below the aluminum thing,look at the valve cover,right below that its aluminum,right below that you will find a line runnin the lenght of the heads,the glow plugs are plugged ointo this,popp em off and remove glowplug with the 10mm
