Default 2011 diesel

Hi Jeepers. Recent jeep owner and love my 2011 Grand Cherokee Laredo V6 turbo diesel.
However the last few days it has become very slow to start when cold in the morning. Once it has fired all is good but can wind over for 30 seconds i reckon.
Hope someone can shed some light.
Regards Scott

Sounds like a glow plug problem, or low battery volts.

Agree. Both worth testing. Suggest test the battery first, especially if it has any age to it. If battery is less than a couple of years old and under-performing, the alternator could be suspect and there are other threads in here worth reading on that topic.

Small not yet conclusive update, cycling the ignition 3 times for 20 seconds to prime the system it starts almost normal ..... so i think there's a vacuum leak overnight and the filters were replaced a few weeks ago and one of them didn't go home nicely. So tomorrow I'm going to swap it out for a new one and c if that fixes it. Fingers crossed

It's pretty easy to munt the filter caps I have heard. Maybe have some new ones on hand?

Cheers, Steve
