Hi All,

I was just going through all of my service docs and glanced over the servicing items in the book which has Spark Pug replacement at 58k - is this required? it wasn't mentioned to me on my last service,

I have a 2012 3.0L TDI

Yes diesel, I just wanted to make sure they don't also mean glowplug in the same category

:D It did make me smile. Glow plugs don't spark They glow red hot. And spark plugs don't glow. Whilst glow plugs dont have a replacement schedule, they last about 150K miles. You will know if they fail as it will take more turns of the engine before it starts.
