OK, so starting the engine uses a lot of battery power, and the engine needs to be left running a while to recharge the battery.
When it is cold batterys don't hold as much charge (not quite the correct technical term, but I don't want to go into battery mechanics and chemistry here). You either need to pop it on a trickle charger or let it run for at least 15 minutes.

Hello rextabell. If you are not currently doing this, it helps to turn the key, wait for coil light [glow plug] to turn off, but then wait another 2-3 seconds and then start it up.
That said, if warming up the coil does not seem to make a difference, suspect the battery. I recommend that you get your vehicle battery tested and also test the car's charging system.
When a diesel engine has a well charged battery of adequate amperage it generally does not behave badly. Joe
Thanks for choosing Fixya!

check the temperature sender for your fuel and emissions (not same as sender for gauge is most cases) if fuel injected, if carburated check choke. also ensure plugs and wires are in good shape
