Hi Kevin .

Few issue will cause a hard start in the morning is as you said fuel return to tank and glow plugs .

To check do the following .

In the morning pump the primmer until hard then try and start ,if she starts a lot faster than normal

then you have a bad primmer .its letting fuel return to the tank over night .

Second on the glow plugs on the following day when the car has stood another 8 hrs .

Using a test light switch on the ignition with the test light connected to the glow plugs .

on a cold morning the test light should glow for 10 - 15 seconds ,(this depends on engine temp)

if it only comes on for a few seconds then you will need to diagnose why .

If this is the case with the glow plugs then please get back to me .

Kindest regards Greg
