Hi just removed my rocker cover as i noticed my oil level was lower than usual there was oil swimming nicely around the injectors no carbon or diesel just oil.
While the cover is of i wanted to check the glow plugs as
it starts first touch of the button but runs a bit lumpy when started from cold only for a couple of seconds.
So i thought i will check the glow plugs i removed them tested them on a battery = threaded nut end on posi main body on earth with aid of a wire not a bit of Life or Glow out of any off them. So my question is why does it start so great if no glows are working :confused:.
Just to say glow plug light comes on the dash stays on a while about 8 seconds but does go out

If the battery is fully charged the tip should be hot in 1 to 2 seconds

Are you sure you are making a decent contact?
Very good contact also just tested on a multimetre on ohms = nothing + resistance = nothing no reading what so ever.
I have even checked some other glows that i have and they all work but alas none of them fit the sorento usual story i have ordererd 4 new ones now thank you for replying
