Change your glow plug and if that doesn't fix the problem try playing around with the needles again make sure you adjust the high speed before the low speed.Assuming it's a new maxx with the 2.5 you need to be very precise when you tune that engine it's really touchy.

Yup glow plug first. Ive been hearing alot about the bubbles around the glow plug, either the surface is realy dirty or the head is warped. How many times have you removed or even loosened the plug? Gotta make sure the surface is clean before snugging it up, and you got to remember not to tighten the plug to much.
