It sounds like one of your glow plugs may not be working every time.

Mine did that same kind of thing last month. It would shutter and I would let off but I was blowing white smoke. I bought a fuel additive and It hasn't happened again. I'm assuming that was my problem. Wondering if it actually was the glow plugs on yours maybe then mine are starting to go.
