I'm very happy today as I had a glow plug go bad on my 2012 Duramax. Monday got AutoZone to scan, bad GP, bought one there, was going to tackle.
Talikung to friend later he says, that's part of the emissions stuff so should be covered, so call dealer Tuesday morn. Yep, warranty & be their at 1:00pm .Arrive on time & 2 hours later I'm driving home. Good day tater.

I hope you are being facetious. If not, ask that lady at Cummins to tell you how the glow plugs in the ISV 5.0L work.

Rod that goes into each cyl to pre heat before starting . In cold weather your turn key on & wait for light to go out then crank. My '03 also had a block heater but I can't find the plug if this one has it, but it just doesn't get that cold here but maybe 1 or 2 days a year. My Kubota tractor has glow plugs too

Ron, is just having a bit of fun, the Cummins 5.9 and 6.7 don't have glow plugs, rather they have a Grid Heater to warm the intake air.

Yeah the one with the bolt that comes loose and gets suck into the intake. Fun stuff for sure!

LML duramax is one up on the cummins. It has glow plugs AND a grid heater. I suspect the grid heater doesn't have near as much heat output as the cummins grid heater.

Course some of the cummins in Motor homes have neither grid heaters or glow plugs, but do have a ether(sp?) AKA starting fluid injection bottle!
