glow plugs

  1. 3 Litre ZD30 DI Engine
    Hi All, I'm rebuilding my ZD30DDTI and I have purchased some steel tip glow plugs to go back in. I intend to do the timer mod in the near future too. My question is: can I use the steel tip glow plugs in the meantime or do I need to use ceramic ones until I do the timer? Cheers.

    Hi everyone, time to replace the glow plugs. Have decided i will stick with ceramic, as i won't be installing a timer. (I'm seeing from all the posts that since they stay on for so long ceramic will be better than metal). So if buying ceramic, do i only have a choice of Nissan Genuine @ $300...
