Best Glow plugs?

Who makes the best glow plugs and glow plug wiring harness for a '97? How much does it roughly cost to do this project?

Stick with the Ford or International glow plugs stamped BERU. Autolite's tend to swell up in the head.

Do you know the glow plug harness is bad? What about the pass thru connectors on the valve cover gaskets? GPR working? Don't forget to check that too.

Don't know for sure that the harnesses are bad. Are the pass thru connectors part of the valve cover gaskets?

Yes the pass through connector is part of the gasket. Give Dfuser a call for all the parts. You can find his number in the vendor tab at the top. He sells the good plugs and harness.

Depends on how you feel about pulling a head to remove them. The Motorcraft aren't any more expensive, and you can get them at the local parts store, so why are you so worried?
