If you had 5 bad GP...your cold starting should improve now with new plugs

Believer45 Mine was starting with difficulty but with four bad and one unplugged (three working glow plugs).

How many glowplugs

How many glowplugs can be bad and the truck still start? I got the plugs on the Passenger side changed tonight before it got dark. I only had one bad one on that side. I check them as I pull them out by hooking them directly to the battery with jumper cables. Now I have one better one than before and it still wouldn't start. I had replaced a bad one on this side last year as well and it started like a champ. I put a used one in though, that's why I'm just replacing them all with brand new this year. I'm wondering how many I will find bad on the driver's side tomorrow. I would guess all of them. Also, can anyone tell me the torque on the plugs?
