Do you have a fuse for the glow plugs? Or can you tell if they are cycling?

I did not get a chance to change the glow plugs on Duramax series however on this generation the glow plugs will be located right next to the fuel injector and it will be pretty clear shot to see it.

The early generations were inside the valve covers it kinda pain in butt but not super hard to get in there.

Merci.

Neither. LOL

Erik (SledPuller500) is coming down next week, and he is bringing the glow plug along and will change it then. I will take pics.

Agreed, remove the wheels/tires, pull the inner fender liner, and they are right in front of you, you could change all 8 in under an hour if you had two guys doing it, all you need is an 8mm socket for the glowplug rail nut, and a 12mm socket for the GP itself, mine came out like nothing with 100k miles on them, but i did put some anti-seize on them when i put them back in, just in case i needed to pull them out in the future
