Glow plug removal a BIG PROBLEM

Glow plug removal a BIG PROBLEM

Postby Jules » 14 Aug 2013 21:45

I have a problem and I need advice ! help ! direction !

I have a 2005 A Class Merc 180Cdi with 92000km on the clock which I bought from my BIL which he had since new. The engine management light came on two days after I took delivery and the computer said the glow plugs needs to be replaced, plugs 1 and 4 came out no problem but 2 & 3 is stuck like "k%k op n wol kombers ". After various attempts no luck, the head was then removed and send to the best auto engineering shop here in our area. They tried and said according to them they cannot get the glow plugs out. Now my next step is 1)to start looking for a secondhand head, 2) buy a new head ( which I cannot afford I think, haven't got a costing yet), 3) find a engineering shop that have preformed a similar operation .



Do anybody know any engineering shops that have been successful in removing stuck glow plugs from a merc diesel engine.

Shalom

You may want to try asking for input on Benzworld.org. MB make so many Diesel engines I would find it hard to believe that this problem is unique.

ANDERS - spuit B-52 [iets soos Q20 -- net miljoen maal beter - [kry of bestel by MIDAS] spuit hulle in hulle neste rojaal .. wag oornag - dan gooi jy Coca Cola op daai nessie -- wag halfuur -- en dan draai hulle net so woers warts UIT [daai Coke moet baie koud wees -- muni skud nie

For what its worth, Spanjaard make a special penetrating oil that is superb. I had an issue on a steering column and nothing could unlock it. But the Spanjaard stuff did after spraying and soaking for a few days. You might even try submerging the whole head in paraffin and just leaving it there for a loooong time.

Maybe it'll work.

Mobile thread repairs removed them :blonde: , but it seems the engineering works created a small bit of damage to the injector hole, according to the mobile thread guy it might lose compression there.

Wat is jul seining moet mens die "head gasket seal" vervang ? of gebruik mens die ou een ? :think:

Heli coil could work, I think.

Definitely a new head gasket, and new head bolts, as the old ones may have stretched due to age. If you are doing it .... do it right and that motor will last a long time

Dit neem 'n dan 'n spesiale tap wat skroefdraad sny in die groter gat en daarna draai die insert of helicoil in die groter gedeelte in en aan die insect se binnenkant is die draad weer standaard 8 x 1,25mm skroefdraad.
Kyk na hierdie link op die web om te sien hoe; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RFYa6sjhh_E of http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gxnm8J9WXz8

Of die ouens daar die tools boorpunte en inserts of helicoils het is die vraag.
