My 1998 VW Jetta TDI (230,000 miles) recently developed cold starting problems. I replaced the glow plugs with no change in starting performance. The problem seemed to start when an oil change tech put 5w30 oil in last winter (which the operator manual says is ok in cold weather).I changed oil after 3500 miles and went back to Rotella diesel oil at my mehanic's suggestion. Could the thin oil have caused wear on the engine, or could something else be the problem? The car runs fine after it starts

Audi A4 3.0tdi 2006 Convertible. Misfire when cold, engine is fine when hot. Starts on the button. When cold a 'pinking' noise can be heard on acceleration. Pinking decreases as the engine gets hot?? Mate has suggested glowplugs as a fault however I question this as it is a running fault and not a starting fault. Could this be some form of a sensor fault??
