    In Portuguese (Brazil, that is), vela de ignição.

    Actually, vela de ignição is 'spark plug', which is not a 'glow plug'.

    In both aero-modelling and car-modelling in Brazil they use the terms vela de incandescência, vela incandescente, vela para combustão and vela de centelha for 'glow plug'.

    The first term, vela de incandescência, seems to be more universally used. However, many aero-modelling references keep the English term, 'glow plug'. They phrase it 'vela glow plug'.
