      I put 2 sets of these in my truck before I realized they were junk. They failed prematurely. I will be installing the DZ-11's moving forward.

      DON'T EVER BUY THESE

      Comments about Autolite Glow Plug:

      Don't get these! They fail prematurely and can overheat, the tip can swell up and then they get stuck in teh cylinder head making it necessary to remove the heads so they can be cut off and removed. Spend the extra money and get the Motorcraft or Beru glow plugs.

          Put a set of these in my 1995 F-250. Within 2 months, 7 failed, and it took out the glow plug controller. Pulled them and took them back, the store only had Autolites, so I put them back in. Worked fine for 2 weeks, now at least 4 have failed again. You can bet that I will NEVER use another Autolite product again.

          Comments about Autolite Glow Plug:

          Bought some of these to replace my factory Beru plugs and found that they take about 14 seconds to heat up. The ones out of my truck reach a brighter orange in only 7 seconds.

          Garbage

          Comments about Autolite Glow Plug:

          I put Autolite glow plugs in my Ford 7.3 and 20,000 miles later half had failed. One broke and the tip went out the exhaust, which could have been a nightmare. Many have told me since to stick with Motocraft, which I was hoping to find here.

                  The best thing to do is cycle the plugs before starting your engine. Turn your ignition on and off a few times and wait atleast 10 seconds after the wait to start light shuts off before recycling the ignition

                  you can test them with a multimeter set on ohms, the harness that goes into the valve covers, theres like 9 pins, the first two and the last two are your glow plugs. infinite readings are bad good should be like .6- 2.00. believe me, i just went threw this. if its your GPR(glow plug real.)then don't waste your money on those dang ones the stealership and advanced sells (no offence advanced) look for a stancor, part # 586-902, it'll bolt right on and never go bad again. also check all your fuses carefully, if the one going to your fuel bowl is burnt out, truck won't start either. hope this helped some.

                  It could be the glow plugs or the relay. You would have to have more then two glow plugs not working to make that problem.

                  you need to test the resistence on the glow plugs from the wiring harness by the valve covers be carefull not to brake the plug.
                  I would start checking the GPR (glow plug relay) it looks like a starter solnoide on the Pass side of the motor near the fuel filter, if there are 2 there I think it's the back one.
                  check for voltage after the solinoid when you turn the key on, it will stay on for up to 2 mins.
                  there is more info on the web about this
