Its possible...but if there was something bad in the plugs then number 3 (P0673) shouldn't be working either. I'm not saying its not possible or maybe the module isn't reading the resistance from that plug, but odds are they're probably toast. For the price of plugs, I would pick up a set of eight and do all eight if you have three that are done.

And while you are checking glow plugs, check the wiring for each also.
May have to find a wiring diagram that shows color codes, as I think each one should be a different color.

I see methods to bench test the glow plugs, but same method while still in the engine I presume?

Check Ohm between 1 and 5??

Of course we just had our first snow dumping of the year and the truck is a block of ice....will be getting to the testing Wednesday. Have 4 GP's on order and should be here Tuesday

Update:

Rough start below -8Celcius (sputter, cough, ford-ish rattle)
codes (But NO CEL): P0671, P0675, P0677 - Glow plug 1, 5 and 7

Ohm'd all 4 on the passenger side with known codes for 1, 5, and 7 being the bad GlowPlugs. I tested them in the block by removing the wire to each of them and running test leads from block to the lead on the GP on the 0.00 (20k) setting.

#3 being the known good one, it ohm'd out at 0.00 = good

The rest ohm out at 0.12 to 1.00(open) = bad

Removed all 4 of them and bench tested them to confirm. Same results. Surprisingly all 4 came out with little effort and NONE of the tips were flared (having nightmares of the tips staying in the block)

Installing 4 new AC Delco 63G LLY glowplugs as soon as Dad shows up with the parts (thanks dad!)

Torque spec shows 18ft/lbs and a little high heat anti-seize on the treads then I will call it "good"
