    How are your glow plugs when where they last changed when did last change your fuel filter.
    You say u have had a new alternator have you checked your battery.

    Seems as though it could be a multitude of things with the CDTi's

    1. Battery not holding enough charge (Replace)
    2. Starter motor getting slow (Dual Mass Flywheel metal filings blocking it up)
    3. Leak-off pipes
    4. Check all Vacuum pipes all over engine for perishing
    5. Glowplugs or even Glowplug relay
    6. Alternator (You've already changed that)
    7. Fuel filter
    8. Fuel filter housing (known to crack and allow air into fuel supply)
    9. Fuel pipes on top of filter (Blue clips known to work loose/break)
    10. Injectors requiring refurb or replacement
    11. If you've had a newer EGR fitted the 8v 120 may need an ECU software update (Field Remedy 2149)

    I have done most of these things except replace injectors, replace DMF and starter motor but still have intermittent starting issues

    Hope you get to the bottom of it mate

    Already replaced:-
    Alternator,
    Drilled/Grooved Discs & Pads, Eibach Springs, EGR Valve, 50W HID's 6000k, K&N Panel Filter, LED footwell & boot lights
