Question about Cars & Trucks
Not sure of what you mean
glow plugs are there to assist the instant start of the diesel engine
it will wind over well without the plugs operating but takes longer to heat the compressed air in the cylinders to fire the diesel being sprayed in
if it starts and is still sluggish to respond to the accelerator , that is a different problem to the glow plugs
I'm thinking low fuel pressure if common rail diesel and bad injectors squirting and not atomizing
have a proper diagnosis done by an accredited professional diesel repair shop

have you oil in the water? (radiater) if so you head gasket has gone and will nd replacing (big bucks) having a mix of water and oil gives you the sludge build up continuous over heating will certainly warp your head check your oil dipstick for a milky sludge instead of just oil

first thing first does the radiator fan work properly if it does you move to the thermostat has it ever been changed take it off and put it in boiling water to see if it opens if it does check the water pump see if it has any build

if both engines are in good condition, with the same driver, I would say that the diesel would have better mileage especially for highway travel. You may maximize this further if you utilize the turbo, meaning relying more on the turbo rather pressing the throttle.

I've got the same problem. Just had it on the computer at the local and they told me it is the particulate filter, which they told me is the fuel filter.
