    Perfect Fit
    My 1984 Ford F350 6.9L diesel had trouble starting. I looked for glow plugs from several vendors and they seemed expensive to me. I had business with CARiD in the past, so I visited the website and found these glow plugs at 2/3 the price of others. They were a perfect fit. The truck started on the first try.
