The Basics Behind Glow Plug Replacement Services at Michigan Auto and Tire

Glow plugs are items shaped like pencils that help diesel engines operate. Essentially, they act as the diesel counterparts of spark plugs used in petrol engines. Like spark plugs, heat is used on glow plugs to get the engine moving. Glow plugs play a particularly important role during cold weather. This is because diesel engines often experience problems with the ignition when the temperature is low. Diesel engines allow air to exceed a certain temperature for fuel ignition to occur, but when they are cold they appear to absorb heat. Glow plugs help to solve this problem by giving enough heat to ignite the coal. Glow plugs, however, typically need little time to warm up before they can work. While gathering electricity, glowing plugs let off a slight light or glow. As a result, this cycle is sometimes referred to as “glittering.” Drivers should be able to start their diesel vehicles safely after the glow plugs stop warming up.
