Another glow plug isue
I'm pretty sure this is a glow plug issue right? So Cal temp. 45 in the morning, takes a couple of cranks to start the engine and poof, a large plume of smoke comes from my pipes. I'm planning to change them this weekend. Question:

1. What tools do I need?
2. How long does it take?
3. I'm "guessing" I have two duds, does it make sense to change them all together (the others aren't far behind from dying, right)

Thanks for all your input.
This forum is awesome!!! Merry Christmas!!!

Yeah, put your car in your sig, that way you don't have to add it every time you post. You can check resistance with an ohm meter, below 1 is good.
