    Default Glow plugs!

    Hi guys! Just wanted some advice on how much the glow plugs would cost to be changed as they need to on my vectra! I heard you can only use the original vx to replace them?

    I've got a quote for £50 to change the set as my cousin works at vx!

    I got a set for £30 last saturday but they weren't original vx ones. I also had the engine management light coming on until I replaced them and after my brother-in-law changed them, he tested the old ones and they were completely dead.

    However, I changed them because I was having starting problems and this didn't rectify that. My fuel consumption has also been unnaturally high this last two weeks and my diesel mechanic has diagnosed perished injector seals and possible leak-off pipes. He's replacing these today and insists that it is a very common problem with vectra diesels.

    Have you had any of these symtoms also?
