    Default Glow Plug Problem?

    My 3510 will not start in the mornings. Last week was 35- 40 degrees in the morning. The glow plug light on the dash comes on and after a few seconds I hear a click, then after a few more seconds the light goes out.The engine spins and blows grayish white smoke, but does not fire.I had to give it a shot of ether to get it to start, something I do not like use.I'm thinking maybe a bad glow plug.Anybody know an easy way to check the plugs?

    Thanks
    Mike

    Unhook the connection bar between the glow lugs and check for continuity between the terminal on the plug and the engine block. You should have continuity. Keep us posted as to what you find.

    Galen,
    All three glow plugs showed continuity between them and the block. I also did not get 12V on either wire that goes to the connection bar when I turned the ign. to preheat.Light on the dash comes on and the solenoid activates.Possible timer gone bad?

    Thanks
    Mike

    Thanks, Mike
    Is there a fuse in that circuit? I'd check the easy stuff (like fuses) first.

    Mike or anayone else, My 3510 is doing the exact same thing. I was wondering what was determined to be the ultimate cause for the problem described or what else it might be other than glow plugs?

    Mike,
    I had the same thing happen on my 4110. There is a link ( I think it's called a fuseable link in the owner manual) that looks like a jumper wire. It was broke down in the connector so look closely at it. Also, you might want to check the glow plug solenoid. Mine was sticking and that's why the link burnt out in the first place.

    Hope this helps .

    probably your glow plug timer or relay switch has expired

    check your manual where its located, and replace it.

    The battery cable clamps had to be replaced. After several hours of checking wires,fuses,pulling the dash out and checking the relay I still had the same problem. My dad started tracing wires and checking grounds.He found a single wire left off the hot side of the battery.Put it back on and everything works fine. I was thinking about firing the maintenance man,but it sure is a hard thing to do to myself.Good lesson learned about paying attention and not being in a hurry!
