Just changed the glow plugs on my 1.9TD '95 and still have smoke and poor start. Engine fine when warmed up with no smoke. Anyone had this problem??

Check glow plug relay and temperature sensor. Plugs may not be comming on or not on for long enough.

Hi martin. Thanks for that. Is the relay parked behind the battery or on the fuseboard? Cheers

Not sure where it is on that car. Try behind the trim on the passenger side. You should have a relay board there. If you listen very carefully you might hear it click on and then off when the glow plugs come on. I can never hear it but some people tell me they can. If you can find a garge with a dc clamp meter it takes seconds to test the glowplugs.
