[Vwdiesel] hot starting problemsPam & Doug Boes db53248 at alltel.net

The Caddy (Diesel) starts great when it is cold. The glow plugs cycle and the engine starts before it turns all the way over. However, on hot starts, the glow plugs don't cycle. After about two turns, the starter starts slowing down and sometimes I get lucky and it starts and sometimes I just end up with not enough power to turn the engine fast enough to start. When I put the battery on the charger, it comes down to minimum charge within an hour. Is this telling me that I have bad grounds or that it time for an Optima upgrade?
