Re: Another one puking coolant
Your oil cooler is clogged, your egr may me busted causing excessive pressure in the degass bottle. Unfortunately without fixing that first you may not be able to tell if the head gaskets are leaking. To continue to drive it in this condition may damage the head gaskets if they aren't already. For the hard start, you need to monitor ficm voltage while the engine is cold, cranking, and through the driving range. Less than 45v is a sign of failure. Typically the glow plugs are not a huge factor until it gets very cold, unless it gets to 40-50°, and none of them are working. I would check for wiring, fuse, and relay issues if you suspect none of them are working. Also load test your batteries and monitor battery voltage while cranking, less than 10v , then your batteries may need replacement.
