About Glow Plug Sensor 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 will be required which is where the glow plug system comes into action.

The Land Rover 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 Land Rover 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 will be 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 identified. 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 Land Rover glow plugs sensor diesel will guarantee a part that fits well, performs properly and has a long service life.

Land Rover trivia

  • One of the most unique vehicles ever was the floating SUV designed and built by Land Rover. Unfortunately, the Floating Ninety Defender led many drivers to believe that their own Land Rovers could also float, and many cars were driven into lakes as a result.
  • In the 1950s, you could buy yourself a Land Rover with tank tracks instead of wheels. Known as the Cuthbertson Version, it was intended for use by farmers and was tested by driving across the Scottish Highlands.
  • Although the first Land Rover was designed in 1947 (by Maurice Wilks), the company wasn't actually founded until 1978!
  • The Range Rover designer hated what he had made. Charles Spencer "Spen" King CBE, was focused solely on designing a large V8 engine, and then just drew a box around it to show where the engine would sit. It annoyed him for the rest of his life, and he insisted that he'd only put 0.1% of development time on the car shape. He also hated that they would be used for anything other than farming, saying, "...to use them in the school run, or even in towns and cities at all, is completely stupid."
  • According to the film, Judge Dredd (1995), Land Rover will be the last ever car manufacturer in the world. The car company had a heavy presence in the film, and you can still see some film versions of the car driving around the UK.
