Cold start misfire

My 2007 3.0 Diesel has developed a misfire on a cold start. This has happened only about 5 or 6 times in the last 2 months out of about 100 cold start ups. I had a glow plug for the # 1 cyl. replaced and that corrected the check engine light, but still sometimes getting the misfire without a warning light. Any suggestions ? My mechanic doesn't want to just start replcing parts at my expense until he knows for sure. Also on a scan an error code cam up for a misfire on clyl. #6 and a cam possitioning sensor error, but he says it appears to to be o.k. now.

Might be the cam position sensor. Pretty sure they're known to go bad. I don't think it's too expensive and pretty simple to replace. Cheap insurance anyways

^^ that would only turn the glow plugs on and off.

Turn the key to the on position for 10-15 seconds before you turn fully to the start position...If your not already doing that.
