Check engine light on

Hi everyone, just a question about my 2000 excursion. 3 days ago, my check engine light came on again. It happened about 3 weeks prior to this, back in September, and once back in July. When it happened in Sept. I thought it may have been the CPS which I got a recall notice for, so I took it to the local dealer and had them change the sensor and after a couple of hours the light on the dash went out. I thought that was it until 3 days ago when the light came back on. This time I got the dealer to hook it up to their diagnostic computer and they said that I need a glow plug module. They wanted $500.00 to replace it. Where would I find it on my 7.3L and is it really that difficult to change myself?
Thanks

It's on top of the engine underneath the plastic "PowerStroke" cover. Never changed it before but it doesn't look all that hard.

Check out thedieselgarage.com I am sure they will even post pics of it for you. Good luck.

Hey glad you got it sorted.

When I was in the Ford dealer today getting the 1st service the staff where talking about the glow-plug module. (Mechanic wanted one for a Diesel Service truck) The part Number's for it was stuck to the monitor.

Must be common fault on the diesel's?
