    3.0tdi Slow to start in the mornings

    Evening gents,

    The allroad is still struggling to start in the morning, it's cranks but doesn't fire for 10 seconds ish.

    I've had the battery changed and the glow plugs changed so far, I've been reading up on the inter webs and there seems to be mention of fuel pressure needing to be at 10 psi and there's a valve that commonly looses pressure over time, any one know anymore about this / want to suggest things to explore.

    No relevant fault codes start from either.

    Only things I can think of are fueling or injectors. I take it you have no issues when the engine is hot?

    No issues starting the engine at any other point, and no driving issues either, no stuttering or holding back.

    I think it's had injector work in the past IIRC but I'll check the receipts.

    It seems to be a fairly common issue with no clear cut solution, a new starter motor seems to have worked in some cases though
