Default 406 1.9 td d8 starting problems

Sorry to be so vague but for the last week my 406 has had some serioua starting issues. Turns and turns, trying to fire then eventually will catch and plumes of blue smoke out of the back. When running its fine. Only seems to happen in the morning. The priming bulb is also soft until pumped, when running the bulb is soft again. Any ideas?

Priming bulb never really goes hard on these.

Test your glowplugs as if more than 2 are not working these get hard to start this engine needs glowplugs to start unlike HDI engines
