So when cold starts without any problem.

How many miles does this engine have on it.

How long does it take to start..

When hard to start take a gauge 8 wire and jump the glow plug rail for 10 seconds
from the battery positive post, and then try and start, will it start easy ot still hard start.

Hi David .

Before one can go on with the diagnostics we need to do a hot compression test .

Can you get this done ,

I take it you have the 4d56 engine , compression test is done from the glow plug holes
you will have to remove all four to do the test ,then bench test the glow plugs as they are out.

Do this then pleas eget back to me.
