The Diesel engine in your Mercedes-Benz needs some assistance to get started, especially during cold weather. That is where glow plugs come in.
These plugs thread into the cylinder head, and when you turn the key to the pre-glow position, they heat up, getting red-hot to aid in the initial combustion of the Diesel fuel before the engine builds enough heat to run on its own.
Over the years though, the resistance in these glow plugs will change, causing them to heat up very slowly, if at all. Once glow plugs fail to heat, they can leave you stuck with a car that will not start in the cold, and be quite difficult to start even in warn weather.
It is recommended that all of the glow plugs be replaced at the same time, even if only one has failed. If you think your glow plugs are failing, replace them today and keep your car starting with ease, no matter the ambient temperature.
