My only left solution, it will be to open the entire engine, and see if something it is broken in it, but I thnik I will do that on the autumn...

To check for oil leak, you might do a less intruding analysis with an endoscope (small camera with a light in it on a flexible stick) to look inside the chambers when the engine is cold and has not run for a while.
Current "fleet":

From my experience your problem appears to be a classic glow plug fault or an injector issue.

The injectors you fitted were second hand, how do you know they are working perfectly?
