glow-plug problem - help needed
One morning I went out to start my truck - it absolutely refused.
It had been little below freezing that night - nothing uncommon.
Since I have changed the fuel-pressure-sensor, because that's what my code-reader said was wrong.
That didn't quite fix it.
Later, I replaced the glow-relay, which also didn't take care of the problem of hard starting.
I can add, that if it's cold - like freezing - overnight, I can plug in the engine-warmer, and it'll fire in the morning.
I tested the glow-relay and it appears to work correctly, as well as I don't get a large power-draw, to indicate that I get power to the glow-plugs.
- and the truck is hard to start.
Do I have 8 missing glow-plugs?
Also - this happened suddenly, from one day to the next.
