If its cold it will not like to start try plugging it in a hour before you start it. If that dosen't work you could have bad glow plugs. Try turning the key to the on position wait for the glow plug light to go out and then go back to off and try again then start. If not any of that drain the watter from the bowl and put some injector cleaner in the tank and change the fuel filter. You might have air in the fuel system some how. Try bleeding the fuel system

Acceleration problem


Could be a clogged fuel filter, could also be a slight crack in the throttle body gasket. get a spray bottle with water in it, set it to mist, while the vehicle idles, spray around the base of the throttle body, if it bogs down replace the throttle body gasket. Just curious, was it doing it before you changed the plugs and wires? If not make sure you have the firing order correct.
