    Hi to all
    Have a 2004 2.2 diesel sport which can be difficult to start will crank over ok,but can take 2 or 3 attempt's and shudders before starting , when does start runs ok,could it be a glow plug problem? can glow plugs be replaced easily on these cars? Thanks Springman

    Hi Bought car in May this year from a dealer, problem started in July.Local garage have cleaned the EGR valve, and replaced the air and fuel filter,and car was starting better for a couple of weeks,but has started to play up again. My wife uses the car for commuting to work, starts in the morning, but can be a problem in the evening .
    Thanks Spriman

    Hi Spirman,

    I assume the garage used a non genuine fuel filter? aftermarket fuel filters are notorious for poor performance and exhibit such symptoms you are describing.

    Change it to a genuine one and you will see an improvement.
