hi, im having trouble with my car starting in the morning, it will start but takes quite a bit of turning over and sounds a bit rough in the process! have changed the glow plugs and temperature sender but its still the same. it starts and runs fine after the initial start up...any ideas what could be causing this would be appreciated??

oh dear!!! i honestly thought somebody here would know a bit about cars and be able to help
is the voltage to the glow plugs OK? when was the fuel filter last changed? is the servicing up to date?[C]
try different fuel ....i found mine starts fine once i use shell v power diesel ...if i use asda fuel it misses on startup ....worth a try .
