Peugeot 206 hdi 2.0 slow starting

Hi guys, the Mrs has had a 206 2.0 hdi for around 3 years now, and ever since we've owned it it's been ridiculously slow starting. It will usually start after cranking over for around 10 - 15 seconds plus, except for when it's - degrees when it's failed to start on a few occasions. It's slow regardless of weather and temperature. I haven't really bothered looking much at it to be quite honest, except I'm worried the Mrs will have problems when I'm away in work when the cold weather arrives.

I've checked and cleaned the earths.
New glow plugs although I understand these don't kick in until -6 degrees.
Cleaned the injectors.
New battery.
Starter seems fine.

Like I said it starts slow regardless of the weather. Recently I tried starting it, which it did after cranking it for a while. Once it started I turned it straight off. Then once I turned the key again it fired straight up. This is the case every time.

Do you guys have any ideas? I'm starting to think it's a fuel issue, but not 100% sure. I'd love to finally get this sorted for her though, so your input would be appreciated.

Cheers

Is there a glow plug relay that's worth checking out? Does it run rough and smokey as hell until there's a bit of a heat in the cylinders?

I had a 306 turbo diesel that had exactly the same problem, which still behaved identically with new plugs and new battery. I got jarred off with it so junked the standard timed relay and wired up a fog light switch as a manual preheat button so that I could glow it longer. With enough heat, even in minus temperatures, it would fire up clean as a whistle after half a swing.

does sound like fuel pressure issues, when was the fuel filter last changed?

I would change that and see if there's any metal filings in the pot, if there is one of the pumps is on its way out, usually the lift pump.

Alternatively you can get it hooked up on diagnostics and see if the rail pressure is correct.

Fuel filter probably 12months or less, although it was still as slow and no better started after changing it. I've been thinking its fuel pressure related purely as it takes ages to start the first time, then once started again seconds later it starts instantly.

Not sure about the glow plug relay Mankee.

It's not that quick turning over either despite a new recently charged battery.
