Is it possible to jumpstart a diesel with bad glowplugs? The battery is good, the starter is turning the engine, but it just won`t start.

The glow plugs heat the air up so it will fire, I wouldn't reccomend ether as that washes the cylinder walls down and is plain just not good for a diesel or any engine. Scan it for codes because it may not be the glow plugs, it may be arelay for them.
