1999 E300 Turbo Diesel

My engine is making more noise than usual when starting.... could it be that my glow plugs are failing, does anyone have any thoughts?

Glow plugs would throw a code and light.
I had extra noise on our exact model. My son drove it mostly at the time, so I ignored it for a time being. Than when I (!) took it for longer drive the muffler fell off.

That's what I always thought too. On mine, one bad glow plug did throw a code and light, but I have heard reports from other members that depending on which plug it was, it did not always trigger the light when only one plug went bad.
