This RedCat Racing tutorial will tell you how to install and replace a glow plug. Learning all about maintaining your race car’s glow plug will allow you to take care of your car more and keep it running as efficient as it can be.
Finding the glow plug takes precision. Take the outer shell of your race car and find the glow plug. It is mostly located inside the piston of the engine manifold. You need only one tool to remove and replace an ailing glow plug and that is your 4-way wrench that is included in the nitro starter kit.
Locate the piston and with your 4-way wrench take the glow plug out with a counterclockwise motion.
As you take the glow plug out, there is a ring on the plug that you must not lose
With your glow plug igniter, check your glow plugs. Pull the igniter open and place the tip of the glow plug in. Careful when doing this since you may touch the filament and damage it in the process. When the glow plug filament turns glowing red, it is good but if it remains black or unlit then it has already gone bad.
Replace the old glow plug with a new one using the same 4-way wrench tool. Gently screw the glow plug back into the piston. Tightening it can only damage the glow plug and may only dampen the performance of your vehicle.
A glow plug is used to ignite the engine of the race car. If the glow plug fails, your engine won’t be able to start at all.
