Unscrew and remove the wires from the top of all the glow plugs. Connect a lamp between the battery positive terminal and the glow plug top connection. If the glow plug is good the lamp will light. Alternatively, if you have a meter available, set to the ohms range and connect between the top connector of the glow plug and the engine block. If the plugs are good the resistances of all the plugs should be a very low and approximately the same. A high resistance plug is a dead plug.
Go to your local parts store or fuel jobber and get a can of Tractor Fluid or your dealer and get OEM fluid. About 50 bucks a can but a lot cheaper than a hydraulic pump failure. Good Luck!

Not bad if you can just keep the spark plugs from blowing out.
Yes, when changing spark plugs it is a good idea to change all eight so the firing will be even.
New plugs are pre-gapped, but if you are reusing old plugs then Gap=0.054 Good Luck and Remember.Change Your Mind, Not Your Oil.Use the First In Synthetic Motor Oil's.See My Bio For more information.

New spark plugs and spark plug wires.WARNING!!: DO NOT USE A FEELER-GAUGE ON THE PLUGS, IT WILL RUIN THE PLATINUM COATING AND THEY WILL BE ABSOLUTELY NO GOOD. THEY ARE FACTORY PRE-SET!!!
NO this is not true you can get replacement plugs at any auto parts dealer maybe even at walmart
Is there fuel in the tank? Do you have fuul pressure? Do you have spark? Are the plugs, wires good?
DO NOT gap the plugs. They are factory set at .054. If you DO gap them, you will ruin the platinum coating and they will be NO GOOD!
