Ducato X250 2.3 120 Glow Plugs (Again)

Evening all. Can someone please tell me where the glow plugs are on the engine. I can't see them anywhere and I know at least one of them is bad (flashing preheat indicator + white smoke & misfiring until warm)... Many thanks.

Hi and welcome to MHF.

I stand to be corrected but the glow plugs only have an effect when starting the engine, not afterward so you may have two different problems there, also they are not a DIY job for most folk, and as you don't know where they are I'd hazard a guess that you are not equipped to remove them, they can be rusted in even on quite new models, requiring specialist attention as you could damage the head.
