Comments on how to fix glow plug socket on a Proton 316:
Many thanks, done in 15 minutes car started first time
Just watched your vid and then changed mine the tip on bolt order was good, whole job done in 15mins, thanks :-)
Bro where did you buy that for £80 Looks very good price and also do you really have to take the battery wires off???
Hi can you let me know what your car was doing he said he didn’t start but was it turning over but wouldn’t start or you turn the key and it’s dead because my car is dead I turn the key and there’s nothing to mobilizer want to go off for me
Hi thank you for the message yes suppose I had to change my keys and PCM I will see now if it would work thank you again good day
Good video info. On mine the metal collar under the nut is crimped on there so you can’t turn that nut. Only the bolt holding nut stationary. The metal safety collar twisted on Mine and road up the side of the nut. Pushing the socket or wrench off of it. Pain in the ass. Had to hammer that collar piece down to get box and on it. After that I held it on one spot only turning the bolt and it came out fine then. Nut is worn. Need a new one. Torque if I recall for glow plug is 13 ft lbs and 18 Inch pounds for the small nut on the end by the wire. Nickel anti seize is a good idea on the threads of the glow plug. Good to 2400 degrees. My no 4 went 100k miles.
Thanks. I seen another video where the guy removed the boot up top. Much better only having to remove 1 thing. Lol
Thanks, I have 3 glow plugs that are bad. Gonna be changing all out in a week, been wondering about this particular one.
Every so often when using my kickdown the car wont go, just judders like fuel starvation. It’s not the mat stuck under the pedal lol. Read fault Code and it’s came up with glow plug module. Why would the gpm effect the kick down I don’t know. Any ideas there are no other faults.
