Ok, recently started the car after about 2 weeks of sitting outside and it started fine.......but then after about 10 seconds of running it died......after multiple starts, I disconnected the battery and tried a start after 10 minutes....ran fine.

My question is.....on the 1.9JTDm after you start it from cold the car idles fine and then appears to drop the idle once started....mine drops so low that it nearly stalls!!!

What happens after about 5 seconds after starting i.e. glow plug functions, EGR operations....is there an anti-stall system which might be playing up???
I did a resistance check on the glowplugs are all are within limits?

Cheers for any help?
