I would start by looking for the valve on the fuel rail (or at the filter housing), if you disconnected the fuel pipe from the filter feed you will have a lot of air in the system (and diesels do not like air in the feul system) you will need to have someone crank the motor over while you push in on the schrader valve to release the air out of the system until you get fuel to flow steady out of that port (this may take a short period of time), then you should be able to start the vehicle... would also recommend replacing the fuel filter as well. Hope this helps.

Check to make sure the Security light in dash on right hand corner is not on. If it is on , your passlock is enabled. to dissable it turn your key on but not start it and wait for apx 10-15 minutes. this should re-set it.

One or more of your fuel injectors are defective. I have a 1991 Olds Ciera 3.3L V-6. It had the exact same problem as your car did.I had checked the pressure,which is 40 psi at the fuel rail. I also replaced the fuel filter,checked the crankshaft sensor,and throttle sensor. Still had the same problem. Cleaned the throtte body intake. What i finally found was a bad #4 fuel injector. Take a multimeter,diconnect the electrical connectors of each injector,check the resistence of each injector over the 2 electrical connectors ,they should be between 12 and 14 omes. The ones that are NOT passing the test(or the ones that don't match up),replace. The computor (EMC) ,will not let the engine start,if one or more injectors are defective.

your cars fuel filter is inside your fuel tank along with the fuel pump....you need to remove the back seat to give way in removing the top cover of the fuel tank that holds the fuel pump and filter...no need to drain the tank with its fuel...fuel filter replacement interval is every 20,000 km. or 12500 miles.
