Glow Plugs

Well it appears i have two glow plugs leaking on the passenger side which is driving me nuts. So, i have found a company which will sell me all eight glow plugs, (already going to be in there why not right) and a removal tool for 130 ish. Question is, these claim to be hotter and quicker than stockers. Do i need them? I live in southern california and it just does not get that cold around here.

Here is the link,

I would stick with the OEM glow plugs as I suspect these most likely not have as long a life as the OEM plug. If winter starting is your concern, get a cord for your block heater (all 6.0's have a block heater) and most importantly switch to a syn 5W 40 motor oil. FYI all 6.0 glow plugs are not the same lenth so make sure you get the ones for your year truck. I have wondered if you could use the shorter plugs in all years, does anyone know?

I don't have any issues with starting, even in the middle of winter with a foot of snow on the ground its still in the low to mid 10's. I just want to stop the oil leak. I think i may just pull the current one's out and try to replace the o-ring?? I dont know....

IF you have an oil leak out of the glow plugs you may have more issues than glow plugs will solve. You might need new sleaves. This need more expert input maybe NYC-F350 or others will have some input.
