Sadly the glow plug error is common but it means little, plus they don't actually do much above freezing.

That's about the limit of my knowledge I'm afraid :( Needs some proper diagnostics with PP I reckon.

Sounds like a fuel line pressure problem, first thing to check is the fuel filter if it hasn't been changed lately. The pressure regulator on the back of the HP pump can give all sorts of problems but as Steve says a PP200 session may give you a stored fault or fuel pressure when cranking.
