how to change glow plugs

Is it a easy fix to change the glow plugs on a 2004 f-350 xlt diesel, I had just bought the truck and I am trying to replace parts on the trucks so that I know they are new.

Are there any indications that they are bad? Are you having cold or long start issues? How many miles on the truck?

In general, yes replacing glow plugs is one of the easier things to do. Just need to remove a fender skirt and make your self a tool (.020 or .032 wire) to pop off the connectors.

Check out rock auto for OEM motorcraft glow plugs, less the $10 each. If you ARE going to replace them for whatever reason, do not use after market plugs due to swelling.

6.0L glow plugs are unbelievably reliable. They would be way down on my list of things to replace in the name of reliability.

And make sure you get the right one for your engine. They have 2 different lenghts. Depends if yours is a early or late 04.
