Check that the battery is spinning the engine fast enough . A slow starter seldom starts a diesel.. Check for air in the fuel system and bleed any air out . Check that the glo-plugs are working. check that the stop solenoid is operational and allowing the pump to supply fuel. check for water in the fliters / blocked fuel filter.

Chevy diesal wont start fuel pressure is good


Make sure no check engine light. If light on run diagnostic prior to testing. If no check eng. light and no start when cold, could be bad glow plugs, Take test light from positive side of battery to each glow plug post (unplug from harness before testing) if test light lights plug good . if plugs good check pump mounted driver (scan tool required) if P.M.D. good run test for optical sensor in injector pump (scan tool required). Known failure points. I am working on assumption fuel pressure tested between lift pump and injector pump. Look for white smoke when cranking, if present fuel entering cylinders. I can't offer anymore help without further info. Hope this helps.

when was the last time you cleaned the fuel filters. also there is a breath vale that opens when the engine is started so the fuel runs easier if this is blocked or not working will give the same results as you are saying..
