Make sure the batteries are good (have them load tested independent from one another). Have the starter checked (they do degrade over time). Clean all ends of the battery/starter cable connections. Check all the injector/glowplug harness connections at the valvecovers (there are two connections per side, so four total) for any evidence of melting/burning. Are you getting white smoke out the tailpipe when trying to start it cold? Cheers!
