Need help with Nissan cabstar 2006 engine

Recommended Posts

So I need to find the glow plugs on my engine and I feel like a right idiot because I can't find them at all and nor can the mechanic I asked to look (which made me feel better) . 

 

If someone's got a picture of the engine and where they are on it please let me post it as Im at a loose end here. 

 

Cheers

Are you sure it has any? I thought they were 2.5 common rail after 2002 so wouldn't necessarily have glow plugs

I've got an engine light on that says glow plugs/glow plug relay so I'm thinking there has to be. It's starting funny too so it has all the signs but I can't find the blasted things

Often they are below injectors if you can find them

hi had a look this morning it looks like it has one heater plug in the in let manifold that is situated on top of the engine if you look under the engine cover its a square moulding in the inlet manifold with 2 elec items the top one looks as if it could be a heater plug , but not 100% on that good luck and have some plasters ready as they are so awkward to work on ,but at least theres one thing you dont have to do it very often.

Checked on a spares website and that indicates the  2004 3 ltr model has four glow plugs

try checking one of these sites and using your reg number it would at least tell you if you have one per pot or one in the Manifold ( I would have thought this was an outdated preheat method.
