Transit van won't start in cold

I have a 1991 J reg diesel ford transit van 2.5 lwb. It starts fine normalyy but if we get frosty weather it will not start at all, as soon as it gets warmer it starts again ok. Anybody got any ideas as to what's going on?

Re: Transit van won't start in cold

glow plugs arent working or the fuel is gelling, do you have an additive in the fuel?

Don't have glow-plugs on these models,and i didn't know about the additive,might be worth a try- although both my neighbours have diesel vehicles and don't seem to have any prob's with the fuel gelling.
Thanks anyway
