156 jtd 20v intercooler

Does any one know if the 16v and 20v intercoolers are the same? My near side intercooler is leaking.

Also glowplug light has been flashing when starting the car, and now the car struggles to start on cold start (outside temp is still about 16 - 18 C though). Sometimes it starts fine (even cold), other times cranks for a about 5 - 8 seconds. There doesn't seem to be a pattern to the flashing glow plug light - i.e., if the car starts fine, it can still flash, other times the car cranks for a while and starts, but the glow plu light doesn't flash.

What code is reported - just trying to determine if it is a glow plug relay issue, or if it is the glowplugs themselves?

Yes ... regarding the glowplugs it sounds like a loose connection somewhere, first step (if I were you) would be to unplug them and then plug them back in, next would be to the measure the resistance of them, I can't remember the extact ohmage they should be (but do a seach and you'll find the values!!!)
