I thought I would share another experience from my trip through Africa... After finding the failed glow plug and putting the engine back together, it ran smoothly, but with no power. The garage tried everything they could think of, different MAFs, pipes, bench test of the injectors, etc., etc. but n...

Re: Glow plug failure

The noise was very obvious, a very loud rattle, so carrying on was not really an option. But it still took a very long time to work out what the problem was. Not ...
