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.
