    RE: engine problem

    Sounds like you have a bad glow plug. It happens after break in and just from normal driving conditions. Some plugs last 1 tank others from the same pack last 1/2 gallon. Just replace it and you shouldn't have any other problems.

    Doesn't everyone that it might be a little obvious that he is talking about the glow plug starter! Give the guy some sort of credit.
