Default S60 d4 vea cold start problem.

Hi All.

When starting my 2014 S60 D4 from cold it feels like it's only running on 3 cylinders.
It doesn't rev freely and is very lumpy.
If I attempt to drive away the car jerks/misses alot.
After a minute or so of driving once the car has warmed slightly it runs fine.
If I let the car warm up for 3 or 4 mins before driving off its fine.
I'm thinking a dodgy glow plug?
Anyone else recognise this problem?

It sounds like a dodgy glow plug but rather than guess, just test them.

It was the glow plugs that were at fault. All sorted now.

Hi. Noticed you live in Prestatyn and wondered where you took your car as I live in Rhuddlan and have the same problem. Already changed the throttle body which makes no difference.
