Re: Changing Glow Plugs?
A little late to the game here, but wanting some more information, if someone would be so kind?
I own a 2005 Ford Excursion with the 6.0L Powerstroke and I'm reading conflicting things when searching both here and on the internet. Am I correct in understanding that very early 6.0L Powerstrokes used a bussbar that needed to be removed, but at the end of 2003, they started using a new harness?
I am rather new to performing this sort of work, but I am patient and it is not my daily driver, so I can take my time. Does anyone know where I could find a photograph of either side of the engine and indicate what I am looking for? I've found photographs of the bussbar, but again suspect that was on the very first 6.0L Powerstrokes. (I could very easily be mistaken!) Also, the photographs were of a yanked engine with almost no accessories installed, so it did not give me a good idea of what and where I should be looking for.
Any advice, I'd appreciate it! I'm needing to plug it in at anything colder than 10C (50F) otherwise it starts so rough it feels like the entire vehicle will rattle itself apart. Plugging it in, it's starting smooth as glass down to -5C (23F) so far. But I dread it when the weather gets colder...
