Happy New Year to all.
There is very less probability that all the four plugs have gone bad
simultaneously.You can check the plugs yourself. For this, disconnect the
wire from all the four plugs.Take another wire & connect its one end at +ve
(Red) terminal of battery & strike other end of wire at the connection point
of each plug separately. If it does not give spark, that plug is defective.
If two or more plugs are defective, the car will not start.However, with one
plug defective, the car can be started after giving heating two three times
but it must be got rectified at the earliest.
Thanks & ragards.

Subject: [indica-users] Glow Plugs - how to find if they need a change? And
How many should be changed
I landed at Manipal Motors, Bangalore on 29 Dec Friday after a morning
starting failure of my Indica DLS, 2001. Manipal motors advised that
for rs 2500/- I should change all the four Glow Plugs.
The car had always started nicely in first crank for all the 5 years.
I need some help on how to figure out if Manipal advise is genuine or
a bid to make some quick money. How do I know if all four plugs should
be changed or one particular plug change can help it. How does one
determine if a plug is faulty. For example, For a battery You can find
out if the voltage delivered is alright and then you know whther a
change is needed.
Mind you, even at End year now, Bangalore at 20-30 deg celsius is
quite warm and comaparable with Feb end temperatures of many places in
