Do I need new glow plugs? 147 1.9 JTDm 16v
I have 05 147 1.9 JTD Multijet 16v (new facelift model). Since the cold weather it takes it longer to start in morning. I now turn the ingintion on and off and few times, waiting for the glow plug light to go off each time, to get some heat in the glow plugs.
But this morning it took an age to start and when it did you should have seen the white smoke out of the back of it, i couldnt see the road behind me it was so bad!!!! I have turned it off and it started straight away no problems but the smoke is still there and bad ( had people beeping at me cause it was so bad!). I have drove around for a few miles but the smoke is still there. I am not getting any errors coming up on the dashboard and performance still feels ok, although economy seems to have dipped.
Is this a glow plug problem? I have not had any problems with smoke like this from it before.
Also any advice on how much I should let it turn over if it doesnt start before trying again?
