About Glow Plugs Diesels

Glow plugs are used in a diesel engine instead of spark plugs. The primary function of a glow plug is to produce heat in order to help with the start up process in the engine. Unlike a petrol engine, the fuel that's injected into a diesel engine doesn't need a spark to ignite it. But when starting a diesel engine in cold conditions, some extra help is required, which is where the glow plug system comes into action.

The Citroen glow plugs sensor diesel is a temperature sensor that detects when the glow plugs/cylinder heads have reached the desired heat for ignition and this information is used by the glow plug relay to determine when to switch the electrical current to the glow plugs off.

Glow plugs are normally installed in the cylinder head and are wired up to the car's battery. The glow plug sensor is positioned on the cylinder head, on the heater hose fitting.

It's important to ensure all components of the glow plug system on your vehicle are in excellent condition and working well. Signs that there may be a fault with the glow plug system are an engine that struggles to start or won't start at all. It's always a good idea to consult with your mechanic when engine problems strike, to make sure the correct fault has been indentified. There are a number of parts that could go wrong in the glow plug set up so making sure you have found the correct faulty part before buying replacement parts is advisable. When you need to change the glow plugs sensor, a good quality Citroen glow plugs sensor diesel will guarantee a part that fits well, performs properly and has a long service life.

Citroen trivia

  • If you went into a Citroën showroom in the 20s, there's a good chance that you would have been given a letter that was personally handwritten by Andre Citroën himself, proclaiming the benefits of the car models. This one act of marketing genius is credited with being responsible for thousands of closed sales.
  • Citroën cars have been put through their paces and all in the name of advertising. Citroën vehicles have trekked huge distances for promotional reasons, including expeditions across the Sahara, throughout Africa, all over Asia, and even across Alaska.
  • The 1934 Citroën 7CV was the first mass-produced car to have front-wheel drive, hydraulic brakes, and real suspension! This basic design found its way into subsequent models right up until three decades later in the mid-1950s.
  • Unfortunately, the founder of Citroën went bankrupt in 1934, even though the cars they produced were selling well and incredibly popular. The company exists today because tyre company Michelin bought the majority of shares in the company.
  • In 1968, Citroën bought control of the Italian car firm Maserati. That purchase led to the design of the Citroën GT, which came with hydro-pneumatic suspension and a V6 engine. It did well in terms of sales, but production of the last version, the DS23 Pallas Electronique, was stopped in 1975 after the '73 oil crisis.
