Re: No fuel to start it.
Take a gas line off and try to whirl the car over. If you are getting gas shooting out, then your fuel pump is working. However, just because you are getting gas out, doesn't mean that it is sufficient pressure.

by primed are you supplying a fuel source if so then the car is not getting fuel to burn. this indicates your fuel pump is bad and needs replacing and change the fuel filter also. the reason the pump won`t work sitting overnight is that the pump can`t build up enough pressure possibly because the fuel pressure is not being held, but after the first start up the system can maintain enough pressure to start through out the day. you can have the fuel pressure and volume checked with a gage when the problem occours to verify.
When I get a problem like that, I usually start with replacing the fuel filter and checking the fuel pump pressure. But most of the time, it ends up being a crack in the plastic coil or distributor cap that is wider when it is hot than when it is cold.
I know exactly what the issue here is. You have the wrong filter and its not allowing pump to prime. Im sure the filter is falling in pan. Remove pan and replace filter and im positive that your vehicle will move forward and reverse. I know because I learned this the hard way.
The fuel filter is in the engine compartment, rear of passenger side.
You may have prime the pump:
remove the gas cap, underhood, loosen a fuel connector, wrap the loosened connector with a shop rag to catch the fuel and crank the starter a few seconds, do not let the engine run. Check the rag for fuel, if gasoline has been delivered: Tighten the connector and fuel tank cap, properly dispose of the rag.
If it has glow plugs or an intake heater you will need to disable the circuit. Then you can use a small amount of ether to spray into the air cleaner.!!! If you spray too much and/or Dont disable the circuits you can damage the motor!!! When you spray the ether, if the engine starts and stalls then its not getting fuel. This could be related to the fuel pump, injection pump, the fuel system loosing its prime(fuel line leak), fuel shut-off valve or solenoid. If it doesn't start then it could be related to your timing, valves or maybe compression.
