Wont Start

Sorry if the subject has already been touch on - I just couldn't find it anywhere  :(

I have a 2014 i30 trophy 1.6lt CRDI that is having starting uses after being serviced. It currently has less then 20'000km so still in relatively brand new condition.

It had been serviced at the end of September 2015. Straight after this service the car would not start properly

It cranks over for a while (I ALWAYS glow it first) coughs and splatters and stalls a couple of times before it starts running properly. Once fully warmed up it drives normally again and there is not problem starting it when warm either.

On a 2010 Diesel (70k), there has intermittently been a bit of smoke on cold starts.  The dealer found a dirty EGR which they cleaned. 
This had no effect whatsoever.
Now, over the last 5K since the clean and in addition to the smokey starts (which are getting a little worse), there is a strong exhaust smell around the car when idling.  To put it in perspective, you probably couldn't sit with the car idling and the window open.  There may also be a bit of smoke out the exhaust on the overrun when changing gears, but I'm still checking this because it is mainly visible at night in the lights of following vehicles.

Any thoughts anyone - need a new EGR or could the valve have been damaged by the clean?

Windscreen Washer

I have a late 2007 i30 style  1.4 petrol car.

I used my car a little over a week ago and the washers were working just fine.

I have come to use my car today and went to wash the screens off. the wiper blades work front and back however the washer pump does not work. There is no sound from the pump at all

I have checked the manual and the internal fuse box and engine bay box however I can not find a fuse for the washer pump.

does anyone know which the washer pump is or have any experience in this model and this issue. has the pump pumped its last washer fluid?
