Are there any warning lights coming on?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Hi Mike no warning lights on only when you switch on the ign but as soon as the engine has started which can be 1 attempt or somtimes like yesterday was the worst 17 turns of the key then it started and as always runs perfect, I fitted a brand new filter head complete with a new filter and for 3 or 4 days it was first time every time but after the 5th day problem is back, the glow plugs are quite new ,so any idea what the problem might be then.

The issue that you are describing is consistent with a electrically failing crankshaft position sensor which is very common on these vehicles and results in your same exact symptoms the sensor often does not set a trouble code.
