If it's like a tarry sludge,check crankcase breather is clear.It can also be cheap fuel/slow driving.
There is a special cleaner to use,but scrape the thick stuff out 1st.

Same problem, found it when i tried to change glow plugs cos of bad starting! found that the EGR valve was totally gunked up. I cleaned it all out of Valve and both inletmanifolds, metal and plastic with repeated dosing with degreaser and a brush, when back together it made a major difference to my performance and it now starts alot easier. I think its a lot to do with it reusing exhaust gas to cut do emisions. several posts on here about blocking the EGR pipie from Exhaust, might cut down build up in future.
Let us know how you get on
