    Some idea of how many miles/Km the engine has done would be a help.
    Assuming fuel is getting into the cylenders at the right time, and the
    heater plugs are working, ie. the relay supplying them is also OK, then the
    only other thing is poor compression.
    Check that the heater plugs are getting power when the dash light is on.
    They should remain powered for a couple of minutes after the engine has
    started too I believe.
    It is not unheard of for the relay to fail.
