ARE YOU SURE THAT THE GLOW PLUB IS TIGHT?
ARE YOU SURE THAT THE COOLER HEAD IS TIGHT?
HOW OLD IS YOUR ENGINE?
WHAT ENGINE IS IN YOUR CAR?
WHAT GLOW PLUG IS IN YOUR CAR?

one of two reasons
either the engine is too lean
or
the engine is too rich

What is wrong with the glow plug you are taking out of the engine?????
How does it look????

There are heaps of possibilities what could be going wrong.

Could be too hot of plug.
Running too lean.
Too much compression.
Contamination inside the engine.
Could be a bearing starting to fail.
