    Hi all,

    I own a 2011 Golf MK6 2.0 TDI (140) which has provided me with 4 years of trouble free motoring As the recent cold snap has hit I have experienced my first ever issue with the car and that is difficulty starting when cold.

    The car shows no warning lights, no loss of power and drives perfectly when it starts but it cranks several times now when it sites overnight in the cold temps. The worst was over the weekend when it was -1 and covered in snow the car cranked 11(!) times before it started. I replaced all 4 glow plugs last week but hasn't changed anything at all. There is no excess smoke when it starts, no misfiring or rough idling and multiple cranks to start only happens on the first start of the day when the temperatures are low.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    The CR TDI seems to eat glow plugs, yesterday we had a just over 1 year old Golf 7 in for its second service with us (20k miles) and all four glow plugs reported as faulty.
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    you could try replacing the fuel filter, incase it has water in it & its freezing the diesel .................................................. ............. or drain it with screw at bottom of filter, if fitted. I wouldnt muck about & just change it.
