NGK Glow Plugs - Maintain optimum starting capability for your diesel engine

NGK glow plugs are at the forefront of technologic innovation. Offering optimum starting capabilities and excellent post-glow function, NGK glow plugs promote clean combustion and lower toxic emissions in diesel vehicles no matter the climate, weather or conditions. Manufactured using state of the art techniques, NGK are dedicated to quality resulting in a glow plug that offers outstanding and relentless reliability.

Unlike petrol engines which require a spark to ignite the fuel, diesel fuel 'auto ignites' as a result of temperatures created by vastly higher cylinder pressures when compared to that of a petrol engine. In cold weather or when the engine is being started for the first time after cooling down, it can take longer for the cylinder to achieve the required temperature to ignite the fuel. The job of the glow plug is to pre-heat the cylinder in order to allow combustion to happen instantly and allow the vehicle to start at the turn of a key. Failing glow plugs can result in a number of issues with the main one being slow or hard starting and even as worse as not starting at all depending on the conditions. A failing glow plug will also result in excessive white smoke on start-up as a result of un-burnt diesel, poor fuel economy, misfires and other issues when warming up. You can check the health of your glow plugs using a multi-meter and testing for resistence. The resistence value of a metal glow plug should be less than 5 ohm and a ceramic glow plug less than 1 ohm.
