      What is the recommeded mileage to replace the glow plugs? How much do the glow plugs cost generally to replace? I presently have 180,000 km`s on my car.

      Thanks for the Info.

      You don't replace them until they go bad. There is no set life time for them.

      I've had to replace one in nearly 200 000km.

      Thank you, Does the car still start or does a warning light come on?

      You will get a check engine light. It'll probably still start (unless it is properly cold) but it will run rough initially.
