Question about Mitsubishi Colt
If the ignition controls the amount of time glow plugs are on for flick the ignition off and on 3-5 times each time letting the glow plug symbol glow untill it turns off then try starting. if its still slow to fire your glow plugs are not working at all. start by backtracing the glow plugs from the adjoining bar back to wherever it comes from for breaks, then replace your glow plug relay in the fuse box usually.
if its manual glowing just glow it for 10-12 seconds and try.if its not firing then the glows arent getting the power they need

My vanette had exactly the same problem yesterday. The glow plugs have a timer and a relay. I think that if the light on the dash goes on and off as normal then its probably the relay not the timer. So I have replaced the relay (£50 nissan dealer only) which is located in the center console below the radio/heater controls. Until its really cold again tomorrow I wont know if its really cured it but I'm fairly certain that will be it.

Check your battery voltage while cranking. If it's too low, the electronics won't work and the injectors won't fire. If the batteries are down a bit, there won't be enough power to turn the engine over fast enough to start. It needs a minimum of 100 rpm and 8 volts while cranking. You also might try waiting till you're sure the GPR has dropped out. That takes the GP load off the batteries and may get the voltage up enough to get it to start, oh and also does the tach move when you're cranking? If not, then chances are the CPS is the culprit.

most likely the relay. its located to the left of the fuel filter( looking at the motor from the front). my experience is that they only last about 50,000 miles. the part costs about $20 at an navistar dealer. remove the cowl over the filter, disconnect the batteries(so you don't short the new relay out if you cross the polarity with a wrench) ,remove the four wires from the ceramic relay, un-fasten the relay from the base. reverse the process with the new relay. CAUTION; do not over-tighten the nuts on the wire studs, you could crack the ceramic relay.(iv'e done it) . hope this helps

first of check the glow plug or heater plug! be careful while removing heater plug from engine. due to aged vehicle, heater plug may crack and will remain there, and if that happen head of engine must be opened. check the heater plug by giving 12v dc current. give positive at top portion and negative at middle, and take alook whether heater plug is heating or not?
