About a month ago our BEW powered Jeep JKU would start and immediately die. Just turning the key back off and restarting was all that was needed for it to then run. It was intermittent and some mornings it would fire right up. Once it ran it was fine to start and stop the rest of the day. Then last week it started and died three times before it would keep running and then the rest of the week it would start and keep running no problem. Today it took 4 times to keep running. I pulled the fuel line one morning to check for fuel flow and it had lots when you cycle the key. If the glow plugs were not working would this happen or it would just smoke a lot and run bad to start with. Its getting down to about 40F at night here now.
