Don't hate on the riceburner!! It got a hairdryer at least! LOL

I haven't tried replacing the glow plugs yet, I just bought one of those glow igniters that takes a D battery yesterday, shouldn't' the glow plug glow orange when its out of the car and jus on the igniter??

Yes, if you've got the plug in your hand, and you attach the glow ignitor to it, the coil in the plug should glow red hot. If it does not glow, then you've either got a dead battery in your ignitor, or the plug itself is garbage.
