Question about 1999 Dodge Ram
This is a 1999 dodge ram with the cummins diesel engine
Bump the engine with the in line cracked on the injector pump. Bumping the engine will cause the lift pump to run for 20 sec. or so. Once you have fuel to that point, crack the 1, 3 and 4 injectors and crank the motor in 10 second intervals, leaving 5 or 10 minutes between to let the injector pump cool. The motor will eventually turn over. Have a second person on hand to tighten the injectors when it starts because they can spray a considerable amount of fuel. When you're finished, I'd consider testing the fuel pressure at the filter by using one of the provided test ports. You should have around 12 psi at idle. If not immediately change your lift pump and follow the same bleed procedure.

Did you just drain it or replace it? Try removing it, refilling with clean diesel and some fuel treatment. Be sure all seals are in place. There should be a air bleed on top of the filter housing. Have an assistant crank engine while opening bleeder.If the pump(s) are working right this should purge air from system.Good luck! please rate me.

You may have gotten air in the fuel lines. Diesels cant deal with this as well as gas engines should be a purge / bleeder valve on the fuel lines to eliminate the air. may cough and sputter for a while
