    Nope

    Changed them as a matter of precaution as I didnt want another glow plug issue. Good thing was they were GM ones in there and GM ones I put in. Not cheap oversized eBay crap that were in my old one causing the issue!!!!

    - when you do undo them - make sure the engine is warm - much better

    And if you have plusgas that is much better than WD - but WD will still do the job ok..

    Will be fine.
