Glowplugs - can they be bad without throwing up an error code?
Having an occasional spluttery/smokey start, which can be avoided by turning the key to MAR a few times in a row and going through a few glow plug cycles before going for the start...
Don't think it's the battery/alternator, as the voltage showing through my ODB car health app is usually 12.7 ish when stopped, and a good 13.5-14.0v when driving along... That being said, I've got no idea if this is the original battery still or if it's been replaced before my time... No dates or anything written on the battery to indicate when it went in either!
Will break out the multimeter this weekend and check the plugs individually, but not expecting to find anything as there's no error codes at all!
