The glow plug itself is around $16.88 each + tax/shipping.

Ok I have a question any one have a new glow plug kicking around that they can post a picture of ?
I purchased a set from ebay and well I just got them today and they sure don't look new They look like take-outs that have been cleaned up. I take a new one would what looks to be a copper thread lock line - looks to be brushed up on the threads.

I might be wrong but they just don't look NEW I'll post up some pitures later.

Andy

I usually buy glow plugs direct from Bosch but I have several MBenz factory sealed boxes at hand, so I opened one - the MBenz supplied plugs have no pre-applied anti-seize paste(the Bosch boxed also do not). New glow plugs do have heat discoloration just above the tips-either from factory testing or possible heat treatment. I have noticed that some people on EBay have a generous interpretation of "new".

Hi Doktor A, thanks for that info.
The person got back to me and sent this:
"These plugs were taken off a non installed mopar reman motor. The motor was never ran other than the test run at the rebuilder. If you are unsatisfied I will refund you 100% and request a call tag to have the plugs picked up by UPS."
What get me is the were listed as NEW OEM so that's what I wanted. My question is how do I know if these are actually new? They appear that they might but just sat in the motor for a bit. I only paided $56.25 for the 5 but if they are used they might not be worth that.

Any ideas on what I should do ?


Here's the ad:
"You are bidding on a set of (5) new Mercedes O.E.M glow plugs part# 001-159-49-01. These glow plugs fit the 2.7L Mercedes Diesel used in the Dodge and Freightliner Sprinters. These glow plugs are backed by a 100% money back guarantee. "

I recognize your seller from the money back-call tag offer. I even know the engine they came from-he was truthful about that. Keep the glow plugs and give him a brief scolding- he really should have described them as "new take-offs". Doktor A

The danger to the health of the module comes not from failed-open glow plugs but defective glow plugs that fail- shorted to ground. These can trigger a DTC-labeled as excess current draw of module. It can be diagnosed by disconnecting the relay(module) wiring connector. Pin #1-5 are the #1-5 cyl. glow plugs. A short length of 12 gage wire modified with a in-line 20 amp fuse, can then connect direct from battery to each pin -in turn. If fuse survives for minimun of 10 seconds- that particular glow plug being tested is not shorted to ground. Check all the glow plugs with this method and find the plug/plugs which are shorted-then you can safely replace a damaged module without endangering the new one. Doktor A

Diesel engine may be difficult to start
Initial Activity: 5/5/07 06:08 PM at 51213 miles
P0672: Cylinder 2 Glow Plug Circuit
Vehicle is reporting a potential powertrain sensor malfunction
Initial Activity: 5/5/07 06:08 PM at 51213 miles

I have a 2005 Dodge Sprinter with the 2.7litre 5 cylinder turbo diesel. I am trying to remove the glow plugs & what I am finding is that I can unscrew them & have the threads out of the head but the plug will not come out. Are they prone to carbon buildup on the inside? The hex of the plug appears to turn but not the stem of the glow plugs. Any ideas? I am use to GM stlye glow plug that with a little wiggling they came out. Thanks
