Default Does a 1996 12v have glow plugs and controller

getting 96 engine and haven't seen any topics on glow plugs, was wondering if the 12v cummins has them. I have a Ford and its a big issue. Thanks

Hi, no glow plugs. There is however a heater element in the air intake. When you start your truck when it's colder, watch the voltage gauge drop, rise, drop a couple of times. It's the heating element cycling and is normal.

Good choice! I LOVE my '96 cummins. it's got almost 200K on it and still runs like new! Toss that "blue oval" as far as you can....

I built a seniors housing in dawson creek years ago through the winter and it was -40c. Dang thats cold, especially for an island boy. My ole dakota would just grown in pain when i fired it up. Can't tell you how many times I got to the job with my block heater extension cord trailing behind me down the road
