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.

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.

I can not get the pan down, did you have to bend the hard PS line to get past the corner? I cut the tab as well but still can't get it to drop.

not bad for a helicopter pilot...funny...wh at model I am fixed wing dispatcher. I just changed mine a couple of weeks ago at about 107K...fuel came out black...changed not a moment too soon.

Changing it shouldn't improve economy at all... Fuel filter protects injectors; It's just part of regular maintenance, and unless your filter is reallllyyy clogged up and fuel pressure is low, the car should run the same, no?
