mine has done this once,i went in the gas station and when i came out,started it,it ran teriible for about 1 minutes.felt like one whole bank quit running.then just like you said,like i someone flipped a switch,bam it went right back to normal.let me ask you this,was the wait to start light flickering?mine was when it happened to me,hasnt happened since,its been about a month so far.a dead glow plug wont affect anything other then not aiding in cold starts.250rpms is really rough,im suprised it will still run at those r's.what if the fuel system is loosing its prime in the lines,the fuel is leaking back to the tank,but theres still fuel in the rails and in the injectors,so when you first start it,it has enough fuel to start,but then starts to run out because the pump has to prime the lines again,which would seem to take 15-20 seconds,once it pumps the fuel up,it smooths out.when it runs rough,does it remind you off running out of fuel feeling?
