    my car was really crap on fuel while i had my broken plug in .i done my broken glow plug 2 weeks ago . have you got any bit of the plug showing ?. because i had about half half inch showing and me and my mate kept spraying it with wd40 for 2 days every hour and then he put a nut extractor on. the ones the cut in to it and hit it on and slowly got it moving . we tried this as my garage wanted £600+ to do it . plus when you put them in always put a bit of copper grease on the thread

    hi reeseandellie sorry for not replying but i had look at it and no 1 glowplug is snapped flush with head so nothing to get hold of and now found out that no 2 plug is just turning in head so dont know how to do that , did your fuel improve after you done yours

    yes it has . the only other way i was told it might be able to do is to buy the that you drill in and then screw in the reverse threaded extractor. but if that fails it is the head off job .

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 1.9 cdti 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 145k

    Default

    glow plugs have nothing to do with the fuel consumption , they are for cold starting & nothing else , still better to have them working though.
