    Default Glow plugs, which on is right?

    Hi, all
    I got spanner on my dash when start car from cold, and it will stay for about 1 min.
    During my research, it sounds like glowplugs problem.
    So plan to find out, my multimeter on it's way, I will check each glowplug later.
    But when I try looking for new glowplugs, I found 2 different size of them:

    one from eurocarpart, it Overall Length 102,5(looks like in mm)
    http://www.eurocarparts.com/ecp/c/Va...fa258cfca&GLOP

    and from ebay, looks longer
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/VAUXHALL-OPEL-...#ht_1982wt_958


    So, which is the right size?
    Thanks a lot.

    The ebay ref is for the CDTI 150 Z19DTH, they are different.
    Z19DT glow plugs are actually cheaper than the Z19DTH ones.

    Just use a piece of wire to check plugs. Touch one side on to battery live then touch the top of each plug. Ones that r ok will spark. The dud will not. Simples!!!
