    Yeah I was in the hope to get mine perfect but think it is 12mm thing, having seen many other 12mm TDs in the cold they all vary somewhat but overall tend to be be a bit rough on cold starts. . Mine even is a little unpredictable sometimes cold start is fine other times pops & smokes a fair bit but then all good. . At the end of the day is mechanical injection with more fuel and no boost on idle / startup so when frosty can't burn all fuel efficiently. Could do compression test for peace of mind and check glow plugs but certainly wouldn't worry about pulling the motor . .

    Dont pull the motor. Drop the oil and cut the filter open and look for shine bits first. Do a compression test and have the rocker cover off whilst you turn it over and inspect the valve train for anything out of the ordinary

    I think you will find it is the set up inside the injection pup .
    have seen a few here that are rowdy on cold start .when its cold . to far advanced ... mostly with the 12mm Mod .
    Dave At cooma diesel knows a bit about it ..

    Ok so no metal in the filters so just gave it a service and see how it goes but I will be putting some mineral oil in the diesel to see if it quietens down a bit. Thanks for the tip BEN-E

    I cant believe that particular company's fault finding method is 1. check the injectors, 2, pull the motor. 3, (im guessing) give the customer a hefty bill.

    That genuinely pisses me off reading that. What if it was an out of spec tappet, a 20k km check as part of periodic inspection/maintenance? An easy fix too!
    You shouldn't have to come to a forum (after discussing with a professional) and leave with some basic fault finding advice from a knuckledragger who plays with electricity after the pro has done basically nothing and is all out of ideas.
