Dci-70: I have just purchased kangoo van 04.Firstly glow

Customer Question

I have just purchased kangoo van 04.
Firstly glow plug light does not illuminate but starts ok. However, when driving from cold it loses power, starts chucking out black smoke and feels it's going to stop. Then all of a sudden after a couple miles, clears and runs ok?
