    No, but it could be the temperature sensor that screws into the thermostat casting that can affect your cold starts.
    The thermostat on the 120 is a pig to replace.

    I would normally say it would be your glow plugs that have degraded.

    Try cycling them, i.e. turn ignition on, waiti for light to go out, switch ignition off and on again, wait for light to go off etc, do this a few times and see if it starts easier?

    Just had mine changed, back to one heat of the glowpugs now, was 2-3 previously, although that could either be placebo effect, the fact that it's a bit warmer now, but the car also runs a hell of a lot better now....
