Hello can anybody help? I have a 2004 Matrix 1.5 diesel and over the last couple of months it has become increasingly difficult to start first thing in the morning. Once the car has started it runs ok and there are no warning lights coming on or loss of power. The glowplug light seems to be working ok ,coming on then going off so I dont think it is the glow plugs, the car cranks over but wont fire any ideas?

welcome to the forums :00000732:

just because the glow plug warning light comes on it does not mean that the glow plugs are working.......you may have one or more that are not working, you need to get these checked out first as this is the most likely cause of the problem

Its best that a specialist looks at this. You need to check the glow plugs,injectors(leak off test) and throttle housing(may need cleaning internally.
