Are you doing the work yourself? You can get the glow plugs pretty cheap. If you are having them do the work, I would at least replace all the glow plugs on the side that has the bad one. If not and you have another one go bad, you will have to pay the labor all over again.Hi all, have a question re glo plugs on 2001 Excursion 172,000 miles.
Glo plug # 3 is bad - can i replace just the faulty one or (as local Ford says) - must replace e them all for $500.
Would prefer to save $450 if I can
Thanks for the advice I did had the cover off and the both of the harnesses looked ok I want to replace the glow plugs in that side anyway, my question is do I need a special tool to get the harness out or can I just pull them off ?There are two (2) wiring harnesses for each side or bank of cylinders. There is an external wiring harness that you can see OUTSIDE the valve covers and then there is also one INSIDE or underneath the valve covers. They are connected togther via a plug at the base of the valve cover (where the gasket would be).
The external harness is not exposed to the same temperatures and demands as the interanal one. So the outside harness could be good but the problem might be in the connector between the two harnesses or in the internal harness which feeds power to the injectors and the Glow plugs.
ok with my 05-350-6.0 the glows are below the cover, I wemt to replace them after all 4 in the pass side, filled with the harness and found a kink in one of the wires going the green connector check my scanner again and nothing is showing? I think maybe a wire or connector issue I may have?
