First start help needed.

My 2000 has started to give me a little problem at first start of the day. I hope it's the glow plugs but with 185k on the odo I don't know. What happens is when I first start it it idles with a miss. I let it warm up to normal temp and drive away still missing then when I give it about half throttle it clears up and doesn't happen the rest of the day unless it gets cool. I'm taking a 2500 mile trip in a week and I'm a little concerned since I'm going north to cooler weather. Haven't been able to do anything to it yet. I plan on cleaning the ebpv tube and sensor next week and whatever else I can.

What oil type/weight and how many miles on it?
I would ohm out the GPs, but mainly check the GPR and possibly battery voltages.

Another thought, have you checked your oil for contamination? As in fuel or coolant in there?

Do you have any way to read data like with a AE scanner or torque app?

if the plugs/relay are original they need to be changed.

also check your icp sensor. i there is oil coming through it change it, you could be getting innacurate oil pressure as well.
