hi all
i have an '83 mercedes 240d (sedan)
the other day i began having problems starting her when she is cold. the engine rotates, but will not start. after four or five times she starts, when engine is warm starts fine as well. i checked and cleaned battery connections, and the battery is new.
any suggestions?
my glow plug light comes on as normal, but maybe they need replacing??
could my drive belt have anything to do with this? i had an pretty bad oil leak for a while and i know it leaked all over my drive belt. . .
when it does start there is a puff of white smoke and it sputters briefly
thanks =)

Valve adjust. You might also want to consider synthetic oil.
