Sound's as if it could be your glo-plugs relays

If so then causes could be:

Your engine is staying colder longer than usual

You have a duff glo-plug

You have a duff temp sensor on the engine

That points more to a glo-plug gone then Chris or they've knocked the wire off them and none are working but that'll mean you'd have a job starting this time of year

Thanks for advice Juls~X,all wires are on buzz bar is clean so must be glow plugs.
So how do we know which ones to order and which are the best ones to get?
Cheers.

Hi chris be an idea to get them checked out to make sure they are the problem - do know one thing though as you have the twin relay system the glo-plugs will be the 6 volt ones not the 11 volt ones.


Another thought - on the major service did they change the plugs?

And if they did did they put in the 11 volt ones instead of the 6 volt ones?

worth asking I think
