yes point it down at the glow plug in the head. You might want to check the temp gun as well because it can be off as well depending on what type you have. One of the best out on the market is the Exergen DX501 Infra Red Temperature Gun. Its 259.99 on amain and if you want if you go to the track and some that has one prob will let you temp your motor and see how close yours is or how far off it is.
