Hi i have a 1987 chavy 6.2 diesel silverado pickup. I have a problem with the glow plugs sometimes they work and sometimes they dont i am thinking it may be a short somewere in the system but i am also thinking it may be a bad relay. Sometimes plugs work then after i drive the truck plugs sometimes they wont come on the next time i go to start it. Sometimes if i crank the engine they will come on. Other times they wont. last time this happened i shook the wires and nothing worked until i hit the glow plug relay with the butt of my mag lite. Any suggestions what this could be??

Thanks,
Steve

>From reading diesel page my impression is auto. glow sys. was problem
co$ting glow plugs.
I would put in manual switch. My '83 already had manual switch when I
bought it. I hold for 6-7 seconds twice or thrice and start it.

'I listed a surplus Watermota diesel on DieselEngineTrader. It took a few months to sell, but I was delighted as the engine was quite obscure and I never thought anyone would buy it!'

John MacTaggart Dalintober Boats UK

'We had a Mercedes engine in stock for over a year but were unable to sell it in Belgium - it was an unusual specification for generator use. Once we listed it on DieselEngineTrader.com, we sold it to a customer in England! We get regular inquiries from customers across the world.'

Rob Verhoeven, Hamofa Engines, Belgium

'We've sold a number of engines via DieselEngineTrader.com - even some that we've had lying around for a few years! It's very useful in getting our inventory seen by a much larger market.'
