You have to give more information about your observations on how it rotates. does it fires but not start?
Does it start but fires irregularly?

Check your fuel filter, fuel pump, spark plugs,(there have been substandard plugs proliferating in the market today). temp?, oil?

Check to make sure you have correct fuel pressure, also do a leak down test on the fuel pump, after shuting engine off the pump should not loose more than 5 PSI after key is turned off, you will need to borrow or buy a fuel injection pressure test guage for this, it hooks up on a test port on the metal line that feeds gas to the injectors this tool costs about $20 from Kragen auto or a store like it.

Hard to start / engine rotates but wont start


check fuel pressure with a gauge,turn the key in the on position an read pressure ,if pressure goes lets say to 40 or 50 on one key cycle pump is prob. good . if it takes 3 to 4 key cycles to achieve this pressure ,pump is bad or connection in tank is bleeding off over night.

97 Gmc Savana,6.5 turbo diesel vacuum pump not rotating


If the pump is not rotating all the time then it's due for replacement. They are not supposed to stop while engine is running. 227K miles is a lot of miles for any engine component.
