Get two new glow plugs and try them before you do anything else.They get old, like spark plugs and should be changed.If they don't heat up as they should, it will cause hard starting. That is the best thing to try and the cheapest. Let me know. Just leave question open and do NOT ACCEPT until you have tried it. Let me know. Thanks.
