Question about Dodge Sprinter
" p0380 ,is most likely the circuit after all,not the glow plug,or it would not have started.Have the glow plug relay replaced,it most likely is not available in a parts store yet,but the dealer will have them.The relay is what HOLDS current to the glow plug,yours is not holding,it is letting go,only attempting to glow the plug,therefore you are having to do this multiple times to get the car to start..

Diesel fuel often as water and wax in it.
In cold weather, this can totally plug up the fuel filter.
I would replace the fuel filter.
It should be done often anyway.
Glowplugs have a relay and resistors that can burn out.
But hard to say if it works now.
Those tend to not be intermittant.
You should also look for moisture in the PCV valve, or anthing else that could freeze up. If this was a gasoline engine, I would suggest looking for condensation icing from the PCV on the air sensor, but I don't know enough about diesels to say if there is anything like this on yours.

There should be a fuel/water seperator in which also incases a heater to warm the fuel prior to being induced into the fuel distributor. regulary make sure this is drain and the way you tell is water will fall directly to the bottom and the fuel will stay on top. so..when the the fuel comes out, youre done. close the petcock and resume doing what you were doing. once a month in cold weather is a good benchmark and when it is wet. some of these filling station tend to get water leaking into their tank below ground during the wet months. ive seen a car get filled with a whole tank of water and no gas. look in your owners handbook and they should have the location of the seperator, if not let me know.
