Glow Plugs - Why Quality Counts

beru-glowAt this time of year glow plugs take on added importance and this year a number of factors could make this winter a busy one for glow plug sales. A higher percentage of diesel engine cars and the fact that in the present economic environment people are keeping their vehicles for longer are two factors. Added to this, last years harsh winter means that many vehicle ignition systems had to work extra hard in the past twelve months meaning a greater need for replacement components.

When it comes to glow plug replacement, Beru is the name you can trust. Beru are responsible for a huge proportion of the OE plugs that car manufacturers rely on and is the company at the cutting edge of ignition technology.

Glow plugs perform a vital function on a diesel engine vehicle in cold and damp conditions, but faults will sometimes go unnoticed over the summer. When the temperature drops faulty plugs can mean big problems:

  • Slow and less reliable starting
  • Dramatically increased fuel consumption in the start-up phase
  • Increased CO2 emissions and the risk of NCT failure.
  • The possibility of long term engine damage
  • A greatly increased risk of a vehicle failing to start with inconvenience and cost.

ADE can offer the complete Beru glow plug range with outstanding quality and application coverage. Right now we can also do some of the very best value deals on quality glow plug stock orders.
