,,,sort of limited for diagnostic info here, but with a cold engine, the air intake temperature must be considered by the ECU and air volume with respect to diesel injection is monitored to assure correct combustion...may be an engine temperature sensor...on thing is for sure it is temperature related...would look to the temperature related control devices~

The glow on the glow plugs is weak on account of a bad battery...five years is all you can expect from one of these newer tin/antimony batteries~

also when was last time fuel filter was changed ? also what have you had or done to vehicle to notice this problem before or after any job you have or may have done on the car.would be handy to know

you could check to see if any air locks in fuel, while engine running get some one to put foot on a/pedal just a little revs then just crack each injector open 1x1 enough to get rid of air leaks in system and see how you go
