Hi,

I’ve recently been having trouble starting my car when it's frosty. It starts fine all the rest of the time and last year it didn't have trouble (except when the battery died). Does anyone have any idea what might be the problem?

Hi,

Cheers for the solutions. I took the car to a garage on Saturday and 3 out of 4 of the glowplugs had gone. I've had all 4 changed and the car starts straight away.

Thanks for your help!
