time for a set of new glow plugs .

when the plugs are replaced, there is a special reamer that should be screwed into the glow plug hole a few times to clean out any carbon build up, then install the new glow plugs.

the cause is one or more of the glow plugs is not glowing and or so much carbon inside the chamber is touching the glow plug and removing the heating effect of the air around the glow plug - which is needed to fire a cold diesel.

also inspect the wires to each glow plug before you do the above. Could be just that , a poor glow plug wire connection , or poor connection in the pre-glow relay/plug pins.
