wont turn over any faster, but if you had a few bad plugs, the motor would definitely then, fire off quicker, if bad gp's were replaced with OEM gp's.

if you have trouble starting in cold weather then you most likely need new glow plugs, they help raise the temps in the cylinder so when you have your compression cycle the air is hot enough for the fuel to combust.

Is there any test you can run to determine if you have bad glow plugs?

How do you know if your glow plug relay is going out?
