Starting problem in a '97 dodge ram diesel

I have a '97 dodge ram 2500 diesel. I bought it new and currently it has 106000 miles on it. Recently it has developed a problem starting, sometimes it fires right up, but sometimes when I turn the key to start, it just clicks. I changed one battery and the other is still good. If anyone has any info. please let me know. When the starter turns over it is very strong.

Could be the solenoid on the starter. Next time it doesn't start, hit the starter with a hammer or other hard object, then try to start it. If it starts, replace the starter before it leaves you stranded

Batteries should be changed as a group. over time they seem to "twin" off each other and wear at the same rate. You should also check your starter selonoid to be sure it is working correctly and is not worn out.

Well, Hate to say this to you but your Cummins 24v turbo diesel does not have glow plugs. The fuel temperature necessary for proper ignition is heated by an element inside your fuel filter housing.
