  2. Runs like a dream and getting abit MPG aswell :-):-):-)
  3. Replacing glow pugs has cured the problen and its alot more smoother running since I replaced the fuel filter :-):-):-):-)
  4. I know thats what i though but ill be starting with the glow plugs if its not that then ill move to the glow plug relay and see if thats cures it
  5. Found out the problem its glow plug related so getting them replaced tomorrow morning :-):-):-)
