Hi again
I have replaced the Advance Actuators Solenoids Valve, was easy.
Engine starts but is struggling to start.
Have look on video.
When the engine is hot starts easier.
I still haven’t sorted this problem, where I have look next?!
Glow plugs? Engine was worm and was worm outside

Sounds like either low compression or retarded pump timing. A compression test might be the easiest to try first.

I have to give up.
Does anybody know the garage in Surrey where they have the knowledge about this engine?
