Post 1999 E300 Turbo Diesel

For the past few months my E300 Diesel has been starting a litttle rough in the morning...I was wondering if this could be a glow plug problem. I do not have any idiot lights on. Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated.

When one glow plug went bad on mine, I got an idiot light. Others have said that they did not get one with only one bad plug. It is very easy to test your plugs using an ohm meter. Disconnect the glow plug connector at the relay and check each terminal. Good plugs will read about 0.7 ohms. Another common issue might be an air leak from bad O-rings. Both well covered in the 210 section below.

Sounds like aglow plug. But be careful if you change them yourself. The tend to get stuck in the cylinder head due to all the carbon buildup. If you break one off, it is a big job to get it out.
