147 16v JTDm starting badly
looking for some ideas on my 06 plate 147 16v JTDm, had it about a year and it's not starting as well as it used to. Fairly high mileage (about 120k), had EGR and MAF replaced just after I bought it, has also had new glow plugs. Been serviced recently (think fuel filter was changed- will check).
Sometimes takes a lot of cranking to get it started, seems to be worse if it hasn't been used for a couple of days. Once it's going it seems to drive as well as ever- when I had it serviced last month (A&M Alfas, Wickham, Hants) Mike said it drove well and was good on emissions (MOT at same time), he even commented it didn't smoke much for a diesel.
Seems to have got worse in the last couple of weeks- I had asked Mike to look at it when it was serviced/ MOT'd and he couldn't find anything wrong then, but it wasn't so bad then and he thought that it was ok... although not great
any ideas anyone?
