Hi Harry,

 

Its quite likely that if your running the original glow plugs they are just not as efficient as they should be. It could be a simple case of replacing them should suffice.

 

Have you checked any error codes on your car?

Check the voltage at the glow plug, does it correspond with the glow plug light ?

Being a mechanic I'm sure you know this but FYI;

Once the engine has started, the glow plugs enter an after-glow phase. The after-glow phase helps to improve idling and reduce hydrocarbon emissions through more efficient combustion just after starting. The after-glow phase only operates at engine speeds below 2500 RPM, above that, the after-glow phase is interrupted to increase the durability of the glow plugs. There is a maximum after-glow time of 30 seconds at -20ºC or lower. At temperatures above 50ºC there is no after-glow phase.
