good to see a bit of OZ on the forum.
I have an 06 X3 3.0d, and also have six glow plugs showing as faulty on daiagnostics from reliable indy here in Sydney.
He reckons ( as I also read here) this should not cause a problem, but I have a bad misfire problem which he cant resolve.
If it was petrol engine , you would say it feels like it was a coil , or water in the fuel, but no clues / faults other than the glowplugs.
Indy thought it might have been gearbox related, but cant find anything.
Happens mostly under acceleration.
have changed fuel filters, but not pumps.
Am in Melb from time to time, so a name of a good diagnostic dude would be much appreciated.
email to email@example.com if needed
cheers, and go the swans
