    it may be to lean, is the coil inside the plug busted or how does it look?

    do you have an ignighter with an indicator on it? the engine could be too lean? the ignighter could be dirty or dead battery?

    Running too lean may cause your glow plugs to burn out prematurely. The small coil in the plug may even be pulled out slightly.
