Not sure if I need ceramic or metal tipped glow plugs. Also, 2 plugs with pressure sensors are required along with 4 normal plugs?

Doubtful ceramics are available anymore. Yes. Two have sensors, one on each side. Others are normal.

Do you know which ones are the more expensive sensor plugs? I have a bad #3 glowplug.
