You should check that you are getting power to your glowplug busbar. (thats the alloy bar that connects the power to all the glowplugs).
1.Get a circuit tester and connect the clip to negative earth -
2.Get someone to turn the ignition key to "on" while you hold the tester on the busbar. It should light up for around six seconds I think.
3. If this happens all good than the next step is to check that the glow plugs are turning off correctly while your driving or operating the vehicle.
Also remove and inspect the glowplugs they should be just a nice brown/carbon colour...
They should have no chips out of them or damage of any kind.
These 4D56 engines have a glowplug timer that almost always stuffs out. Then they cause the glowplugs to stay on almost the whole time while driving which stuffs them quickly...
Let me no how you get on
I have a few easy ways to fix this problem!!!

SOURCE: oil leak
im in total agreement with emissionwiz unless its the oil pand but that easy to check just remove the trans dust cover (little half moon shaped metal thing that bolts to the block) and u should be able to tell where it is but you sould be ready for the rear main

SOURCE: stearing box oil was leaking
The steering box oil leak and the timing belt problem may or may not be related. Oil will deteriorate belts. Timing belts should be changed from about 60,000 to 80,000 max. Most people neglect changing there timing belt (yours was probably over due). The overhead cam performance, inexpensive price of the automobile, and the room to have a larger motor in a smaller car all hinge on the timing belt design that you benefit from. The only down fall of this design is the fact that in higher performance versions of this engine , if the timing belt breaks the pistons will hit and bend/break the overhead valves. That is why manufacturers give you a breakdown of when you should be performing scheduled maintenance in your owners manual or warranty manual. Depending on the cost of the repair sometimes it is cheaper to replace the head with a complete assembly from a salvage yard than pay some one to rebuild the one you have . If your funds are limited I would price the repair both ways. A used head assembly might be less than the cost of the valves. your sweat equity can save you money.
