Im not to familiar with the cummins but, If you have a pdm box on it thats probably the culprit. If they have them it should be mounted by or on the intake somewhere. Its a little black box with a plug going to it. If this is the problem they are pretty expensive. Hope I was of some help.

the best advice i can give you is bring it into a warm garage and let it heat up, then treat your fuel with anti gel solution run it through your injectors by running engine and this should not happen again, seems like your lines are gelled up and you don't have proper pressure.

Sadly, I'm of the same opinion of whoever gave you the last suggestion. Maybe, just maybe, you have a couple of bad plugs, but I'd be looking at the lift pump and possibly injectors/rails.

99 ram diesel wont start

Did you check to see if there is power to the glow plugs if not then that may be the problem and if there is power when you cycle the key not to start but for the plugs to warm up you may have a bad glow plugs.

Fuel presure dodge diesel ?

all i can tell you is that as long as you dont go below 4 psi you should not starve injection pump, this is a minimum psi though., 10-13 psi is average on my 2002 at service port.

Engine misses at a constant speed

i had the same problem happen to me. i had to change the injectors and the injector pump to solve the problem. i would check the lift pump first. when the engine is cold it hasnt had time to pressurize the line.does it restart and run fine when it is warm. if so i would change the lift pump. if not i would have a pressure test done on it. i hope this helps
