    Hi All, I've had the glow plug idiot light on for a while, and just purchased a C3 clone, which told me that glow plugs for cylinders 1 and 2 are bad, along with the control module. Should I replace just the bad ones, or replace all of them? It's a 2003 with just over 200,000 miles. The price...

    I have a 2005 sprinter. 220k miles. I have the scan guage which I use to read codes and clear them. I've been getting P0671 for about a year now but I've just been ignoring and clearing it as we don't live in a cold area. For a few weeks now I have been getting the following 4 codes: P0380 -...

    Hi everyone! After a lot of work, I was able to get all 5 of my glow plugs out. The front and rear ones required some pliers to yank free after they spun freely (most likely some kind of build up). But now when I try to install the new plugs in the front and rear they won't tighten. Maybe...

    Reinstalling glow plugs

    Having a hard time getting these glow plugs back in my 2003, is this something that's normal to deal with? I measured the new plug with a caliper and it's about .2mm larger but that seems so little i don't know that it could cause that problem. My best guess is to pressurize the cylinder and try...
