Yeah, I need one fog lamp then, one is cracked, and also the trunk seal, and the rear passenger side door seal. I guess these items are of lesser importance to getting the car a bit more reliable though..
Today, I fitted then new glow plugs. Unfortunately, there was no difference in it's terrible cold starting (have to turn it over 3/4 times for a while before it eventually fires up.) Once it's warm it starts up straight away, runs smooth as silk, pulls cleanly, good oil pressure, water temperature solid as a rock etc.
One thing I did notice - the glow plug indicator light on the dash does not come on at all. Could my problem lie in the relay perhaps? Maybe the glow plugs aren't getting any power, and what (eventually) starts the car from cold is purely the heat produced by the repeated turning over?
