Good morning,

Thank you for choosing Justanswer...

My name is Jake & I will do my best to assist you.

From the symptoms you have described I would reccomend getting the glow plugs checked, although the glow plug light goes out this does not neccesseraly mean all of the glow plugs are working as they should. From previous experience when this fault occurs normall 1 of the glow plugs are faulty. I would recommend replacing all of the glow plugs as once one fails the other 3 wont be far behind.

Regards

Jake
