    Very unlikely to be glow plugs as they are only used to assist starting.
    Have you had the 3rd cylinder injector plug sorted??
    Lift the engine cover if the 4 plugs that power the inj all have yellow clips then it may need doing, modified plugs have blue clips.
    To check disconnect plug, clean plug and socket with a bit of WD40 allow to dry and refit If problem goes away then it will need the plug replacing.
    New plug costs less than £15 from Vx, however you do need to use a soldering iron to replace.
    If you do a search for 3rd inj fault you will get a lot of gen
