    glow plugs

    Engine Management light was on over the weekend so I went to the garage and they checked on tech 2 and they said that I have at least one glow plug away.

    Should I just get the one or more that is gone replaced or should I replace them all at once.

    Thanks

    I'd be tempted to do them all.
    That should keep the wear even.

    Don't know how much they are though.

    Have you thought about going to somewhere like LMF or Motorworld etc to get some glow plugs? I bought 4 Champion plugs for my dad's 1.5d corsa for £45 from motorworld

    Adds up to £104 :shock: Have already paid for the labour of them being fitted as the garage I go to include a hours labour in the cost of puting the car on tech 2.

    Think I will wait till pay day and get them all changed

    Thanks for the advice all
