You need new glow plugs. Im guessing you live somewhere kind of cold maybe. It starts just fine after running because the motor is already warm. Quick start will work.....or at least it did for me until I used one mornig and went to crank and BOOM. It blew my air filter case to pieces and caught the filter on fire. Starting fluid is not meant for diesel motors. If you cant afford new glow plugs what worked for me is turn on the key all the way but dont crank wait 10 sec then repeat a few times and it should crank unless its really cold out or the plugs are really bad. Trust me thats what it is. I replaced mine and now It cranks right up even when its super cold.
that is strange. how is the battery? one way this could occur is if the battery is too weak during startup to get the computer the right info to fire the injectors so the starting fluid gets it going and then the alternator kicks in and the voltage is present to maintain operation. just one of many possibilities. check this with a volt meter. battery should be 12.5 or better. if you can check while cranking motor without starter fluid and see where voltage drops to.
if it is below 12 volts this could happen. let me know please and thanks for using fixya
could be filter listen to hear pump come on also when it will not start a pressure test as well as a volume test would be needed to decide pump or filter keep in mind these test will take ten min and fuel filter replacement will take about 5min fuel pressure should be at least 42psi running around fifty with key on engine off
IVE HAD PLENTY OF THESE GO OUT EVEN A MONTH LATER. AS FAR AS THE STARTING FLUID JUST TRY AND CYCLE KEY BUT KEEP IT FROM TURNING STATER OVER. TURN ON AND OFF ABOUT 3 TO 5 TIMES IT SHOULD BUILD ENOUGH PRESSURE TO START. TO START MINIMUN PRESS IS 55PSI.
THOSE VEHICLES HAVE A HIGH PRESSURE FUEL PUMP THAT WILL ONLY START IF IT REACHES 60 PSI OR MORE.. BUT ONCE IT IS RUNNING REQUIRES LESS PRESSURE.... MAKE SURE THE FUEL PRESSURE WHEN STARTING EXCEEDS 60 PSI OR IT WILL NOT START...
Check connections at battery cables,should be tight & not be able to move cables.Check for corrosion at battery terminals.Also I have seen problems at the inside fuse block where a terminal burns causing similar concerns as yours.Hope this helps
