When I start my car from cold it seems like it's missing until I rev it a few times and it evens itself out.

Also, I've noticed on idle that the engine "jumps" intermittently.

Generally drives ok though.

Sounds like sensor is not working and the ECU is getting the fuel balance wrong. You need to pick up the error codes from the OBD port.

Could be a dead heater plug.

bad glow plug or a injector

scan for codes, check the voltages and resistance of the plugs then a leak down test to check the injectors

when was the last time the fuel filter was changed/water drained off ?

Probably last time it was serviced. So in the last 12 months or so.

I doubt it, unless you requested it, what year is the car ?

Do the filter then, they are cheap enough, Crossland one is about a tenner, the better quality one (Bosch) is £15-16

Cheers mate. As I say, it's due a service so I'll mention it.

Once youve tried the filter another vote for a glow plug, relatively cheap fix, just working out which one is faulty.

Finally got the car serviced this weekend and also did and engine flush and fuel treatment.

The jumping whilst on idle has smoothed out, but the cold start bit still hasn't been totally cured.

Looking through all the receipts there is no mention of the plugs being replaced and with 176k on the clock they must definitely be ready to change.

Latest on this is the car still has a rough idle but now sounds like it's blowing slightly. Sounds like towards the back end of the exhaust. I'm wondering if the two are related?

No loss of power, and still drives well.
