Cold start diesel surging?

Hey Guys, Whenever it is near freezing... and the first start in the morning, the car will start up no problem... but it will surge up and down unless I step
on the throttle and keep it a bit higher than normal idling...
What is the problem? Is it my glow plug that on one cylinder is not working?

what year
if its an older one my best guess is the fuel pressure is bouncing a bit from the injecter pump cold fuel. it takes a short time for the pump to pull stable temp fuel from the tank.
we have some big yachats here on the island and once warm they calm down. 8 & 16 cylinder monsters
a miss fire from a cold cylinder would be just that a miss fire<shake>with more of the normal black smoke.
i my self am only speaking of the older cars. don't have a clue on the newer multi pulse injecters .
and i am only speaking the 3 MBs i have owned. i would also make sure the hose carrying the boost air clamps are tight.
the case, minus a few cans!

fired the recipient!!! I guess they hold their people to very high standards: if you receive something proprietary of another company's, you'd better report it to management yourself. No, Deloitte & Touche didn't spot the transfer. We had to ask for our email "back". ********** end excerpt from 'Corruption at Salomon Brothers' **********
It just never stopped.

Tiger,
The surge is from the engine's governor trying to stabilize the idle of a cold engine with a misfiring or lame cylinder.
Suggest you replace the questionable glow plug, and why not replace them all while you're at it - they last about 100K in my experience - use only Beru or Bosch.
If the replacement GP doesn't fit, carbon is the cause and can easily be reamed by turning a 1/4" high speed drill in the hole with your fingers; its very easy and makes all the difference.

Thank you very much Free World Leaders for that intelligent discourse on marijuana. What would we do without you? We love being your lemmings. Keep beating the Drums so we can march into your ocean of insanity.
"Zero Tolerance" is an extremely dangerous attitude to have regarding crime.
Zero Tolerance by definition means excessive vigilancy.
# "War on Drugs Runs Up Against the 4th Amendment" # By Tony Mauro, USA Today # # J. LeWayne Kelly went to the Austin, Texas, airport two months ago. # # But because he's black, dressed casually and wore expensive cowboy boots, # he soon was surrounded by strangers---police who suspected him of being # a drug courier. # # Mr. Kelly had gone to the airport only TO PICK UP A FRIEND. # # He felt numb, agreed to be searched because he didn't want to get beaten. # # Kelly tried an experiment. He had a white friend WEAR THE SAME OUTFIT he # had worn that day and retrace his steps at the airport. # # Police gave the friend not even a glance. # # His lawyer filed a class-action suit in a Texas state court. # # "The Supreme Court has hobbled the Fourth Amendment so much that I # never even thought about filing in Federal court."
A major foobar in Zero Tolerance mania occurred when the government seized a ship over a couple joints.
The government had seized the ship from itself.

That's what I figured... has to be a misfiring cylinder... if I just keep it 1000RPM for like 30 seconds or so, the symptom disappeared...
Otherwise, trying to drive with the car chugging like that is like an old car that chugs whoa! ugh! whoa! ugh! Rocks the car back and forth.

States, Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. The UKUSA Agreement's existence has never been officially acknowledged by any country even today.
P271: Sharing seats alongside the NSA operators, at least in some areas, are SIGINT specialists from Britain's Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ). According to a former Menwith Hill official, the two groups work very closely together.
P229: David Watters, a telecommunications engineer once attached to the CIA's communications research and development branch, pulls out a microwave routing map of the greater Washington area and jabs his index finger at a small circle with several lines entering it and the letters NSA. "There's your smoking pistol right here." Watters says it is tied into the local telephone company circuits, which are interconnected with the national microwave telephone system owned by AT&T. Other specialists testified to the same thing: purely domestic intercepts. P223: "Technical know-how" for microwave communications intercept was aided by William Baker, head of AT&T's Bell Laboratories and at the same time an important member of the very secret NSA Scientific Advisory Board. After all, it was Bell Labs under Baker that, to a great extent, developed and perfected the very system that the NSA hoped to penetrate.
