Glow plug removal / installation
Ok so I've been doing a lot of reading and I can't find a concise answer to the proper way to remove the glow plug rail and glow plugs.
I've been getting a P0674 code (I think that's right, doing it from memory) for the #4 glow plug and I bought a new one just in case. Going to pull the #4 plug and test the resistance.
I read up on the glow plug thread in the tech files but that just talks about how to test your glow plug resistance not the actual steps required.
Regarding the steps required I've read numerous ways and numerous ways that contradict each other.
Use the ford tool
Just pull it off
Don't pull it off
Use a coat hangar
Use a piece of wire
So... For you weekend driveway wrench monkeys, what's the best way to change out the glow plugs?
