(wrong gpr - (case grounded starter relay instead)
took the truck for a ride, was great until i turned my chip to street, stepped on it and - instant CEL - so i inspected UVCH plugs and sure eneough -
front drivers side pins - male/female - fried, so i have a new Valve cover gasket and 4 pigtail clips i am going to put on - i will be doing this tonight and i will only be doing the drivers side VCG

While you are there I would replace all 4 unless they are not that old. Bit more labor intensive job (at least to me) and the plugs are not that expensive.

take your time breaking them loose.....lots of horror stories about stuck glowplugs... back them off slowly if it feels like it is stuck leave it they should come out without much resistance... don't worry about the oil....

I would try and remove as much oil as possible if it gets in cylinder it can cause hydrolock. When you are finished with plugs turn it over by hand to make sure it is not locked up. Just my .02 Also I get my plugs on ebay ZD11s usually run about $60-65 per set of eight.

if you have an air compressor just cover the port with a rag and blow excess oil out, before removing the gp.
