So we just recently replaced all of my glow plugs and both harnesses. Last night I started getting a glow plug 6 circuit code and hard cold starts so I dug in and found this!
Hand Tap Plumbing fixture Household hardware Fluid

The glow plug has been pushed apart, do you think this is just a crappy glow plug that was already set to fail? Because 3 and 5 we're the reason I originally replaced my glow plugs, this was number 6. I replaced this one with one of my old plugs that ohmd out the best and everything seems ok for the moment

How long ago did you change the glow plugs?
Are those OEM (Motorcraft) or local store?

On a side note that is the first I have seen separated like that, usually burnt ends or swelling.
I'm not sure my dad is the one who purchased them.
I've never seen a separated glow plug either.
Maybe it was just a piece of poop defective

Well, ...ain't never seen that before -- looks like someone forgot to braze the tip to the body
The question is -- are the others the same or was this one just missed?
Really not much of a problem -- the glow plug part can blow out, but the body will still be threaded in the hole -- so only the inconvenience of having to replace along the road
This is the only plug of the new ones that has given me any issue so far
