Ok its like whole plug is glowing except the last turn...its a usual sign for a low battery of igniter

Hey,
It is a very rare occasion that this might happen. It could be a faulty glow plug, if it has come with car from factory. Never the less your car might still start if your tuning is right.

For whatever it's worth, my little "research" has not shown up ANY reference to a direct co-relation with type of plug and engine temperature. Please do send  me any pertinent info on this. It's never too late to learn something new and of interest!

Hi Sushil,

Please follow the link below. I have no exp on 4 stroke engines and so i wont know about the working of a glow plug on them. I have only tried OS & enya plugs.. I love the enya plug since it has got platinum coil. It is double the cost of O.S but lasts 3 times longer than O.S and tuning the engine has been very forgiving.

You wont be able to turn the flywheel. The connecting rod or Piston head will be stuck or broken..

Actually, the link shows you the effect of air/fuel mixture on the plug and head. A lean mixture will cause the plug and engine to run hotter than a rich mixture. It's the mixture that will influence the plug temperature and not vice versa.

This is not true in all cases. While this is common, you can have an engine that turns with hole(s) in the piston.  In many cases you will not feel the compression.

It stopped because, it ran too lean. This process is call flame out.. When is engine goes to max temp, the carb also heats up.. This ends in flame out..
Once your engine cools down you will be able to start it.. DONT run it lean.. Your engine wont last..

If the "normal" setting is 3 turns or thereabouts. The engine will simply not run at 1 1/2 turns.
