A3 tdi 170 sline sportback cold start (2006)
My car seems very reluctant to cold start.
i've always waited for the glowplug light to go off and the wife does too but when i try to cold start it the engine always struggles and feels like its rocking around the engine bay, how-ever when it does start it runs fine.
within the next few months i'm going to carry-out the 60k service myself and change the common service parts - oil, brakes, air filter and GLOW PLUGS etc. I would like to know if there are anything else that would help the cold start issue? i don't want to find the wife reversing over the engine mounts one cold morning.
Your thoughts would be appreciated
