Re: Clio rough start from cold

The amount of time the glow-plug light illuminates doen't actually reflect the amount of time the glow-plugs actually heat. The glow-plugs will normally heat for around 10 to 30 seconds depending on coolant temperature.
The time can be checked using a test light or suitable volt meter.
