Glow Plug Replacement Cost
Get an Estimate
RepairPrice Estimates are based on the estimated time for the repair, labor rates charged by trained automotive professionals, and prices for quality parts.
These estimates are designed to show a range of fair prices, instead of a single price, because there is more than one part that is appropriate to use in each repair, and more than a single mechanic who is qualified to do the repair.
Each estimate is customized for your vehicle and geographic area. Estimates exclude applicable taxes, diagnostic charges and disposal fees.

For best results and to avoid future problems, replace the glow plugs as a complete set. Be sure to verify that the glow plug relay is operating properly.
When the engine is cold, it will be hard, if not impossible, to start. However, the engine will start normally when it is warmed up.
If the glow plug relay, injector pump timing, and engine compression are not properly checked, then replacing the glow plugs may not address the original problem.
