even if the glow plugs light comes on and then goes out the plugs may not be working, it would be the first thing to get checked out.

It could be a fuel problem , either no fuel getting through , blocked filter , failed pump. Is there someone who can check you have fuel coming through?

Coil pack on a diesel !

Live and learn I suppose.

Didnt think a diesel would have a coil pack which I thought fed the spark plugs.

Please inform me if otherwise.

Er nope. ;)

The glow plugs may be in need of changing and I'd also suggest checking that the fuel filter is clean and also the filter housing for air leaks.

A pinched filter seal can let air in and cause fuelling problems.

You may be able to hear fueling problems, listen to it prime its self at key position 2, if it sounds leigbored it could be the pump,filter or air in the system, have a listen.
