    When to replace the Glowplug
    Apart from when actually burned out, a plug may need to be replaced because it no longer delivers its best performance, such as when:
    *Filament coil has become distorted.
    *Filament surface has roughtened/turned white.
    *Foreign matter had adhered to filament or plug body has corroded.
    *Engine tends to cut out when idling.
    *Starting qualities deteriorate.

    How Glowplug Ignition Works
    With a glowplug engine, ignition is initiated by the application of a 1.5 volt power source. When the battery is disconnected, the heat retained within the engine's combustion chamber remains sufficient to keep the engine running ignition timing is automatic: At higher rpm, the plug becomes hotter and appropriately, fires the fuel/air charge earlier; at reduced rpm, the filament becomes cooler and ignition is retarded.
