as far as i can tell its good on fuel very fast for what the car is

i did have the wrong colour fuel put in by an idiot a few weeks back but thats been sorted

glow plugs have been bench tested all working ok

glowplug light stays on for a few seconds not long enough to light them up

this was also tested while attached to the car live and earthed the light went out before they had a chance to heat up

only work that has been done was the thermostate housing that come with both sensor's in it was fitted a few days later the car lost its glowplugs

it takes to long to start in the morning or when its cold

when the engine is slightly warm it starts perfect

my hubby says its the unit that controls the glowplugs or one of them sensor's on the thermostate but he is 100% useless with cars

so with a bit of luck maybe one of you guys can push me in the right direction ?
