Check your fuel injector return lines you may need to put a return line kit on it... the little tees and 90's get brittle and the hose that connects them gets cracked over time causing air and fuel leaks

Check your fuel pump make sure you are getting enough fuel. If the fuel pump is not working properly and then you spray starting fluid and it runs, I would replace the fuel pump

You may have to bleed the fuel system. There may be a very small air leak in the fuel supply line and after a long time idle, the fuel seeps bac into the tank, leaving an air lock in the pipe. When you go to start, this air makes its way into your injection pump & needs to be bled out before the engine will start. Begin from your fuel filter bleed valve, next the injection pump using the primer pump to transfer the fuel. Next loosen off the injector pipes and crank the engine over until fuel sprays form all the joints. Tighten injector pipes and start. It may run a bit rough for to begin with, but will soon even out. If it doesn't start, repeat bleeding of injectors.

Diesel rodeo dies and lack power when cold and in winter


Try changing the fuel filter and get the glow plugs checked or replaced .Diesel goes a little waxey in colder weather making it harder to go through the filter .
Hope this helps.

(TOYOTA SURF 1990 TURBO DIESEL) No diesel coming out of fuel pump


Fill your fuel filter all the way up and take precaution not to get any air into pump. Try this several times. Once you get air into some pumps it can be very hard to bleed it off. There should be some way to bleed. Look on pump for bleeder.

1990 ford diesel non turbo


it sounds like your fuel lines aren't maintaining pressure and the angle is allowing too much fuel to drain out of the lines. i have the same issue with and older f350 diesel if i let it sit a while and it doesn't get started.
