Hi,

What about if you have white smoke on start up, but the van starts even without the heater light going out.
My van always smells a bit 'smichie' like too?

It,s not always Glo-Plugs ..!! Make sure you have an airtight fuel delivery first ...no air in clear bleed-off pipe , no leak on fuel pump , etc . first ...
