    Lumpy start up

    when my a3 starts up its very lumpy and almost sounds like its struggling to run! im having new glow plugs put in it (***** of a job!!) but if this doesn't cure it, where else should I look? is there any common problems? cheers

    I would scan it with VCDS.
    Do you get a cloud of white smoke at startup?
    Car loosing coolant?
