I recently put a second hand injection pump into my 1998 Vitara and ever since I've had cold start trouble. Before the engine started first flick of the key. I've excluded glow plugs and fuel/air leaks. Anyone have any ideas? Is there something on the pump which controls cold start that could be faulty?

Update - problem solved. Don't think that because glowplugs pass electrical tests they cant be faulty. I decided to take them out and two were broken (they were changed only 6 months ago).  I shewed the broken plugs to the assistant when I was buying a new set and he said right away that repeated starting on a cold engine 'blows the heads of plugs'. He was right - he didnt know I had IP starting problems to begin with.

The Vitara is running like a dream again, which at one time looked like a lost hope.
