Are you letting the glow plugs warm up all the way before you are starting it? If not there is your issue. Also may be due for a fuel filter. When it gets cold diesel gas thickens up and if your filter is bad it could be restricting your fuel flow.

1994 gmc 2500 diesel 6.5 sarts and stalls. When cold it starts good and drives allways on highway. When stopped for 15 minutes or 30 minutes, it will start but stalls after a few seconds. It will start...

You apparently have a leak in your fuel system that allows air in to the fuel system but doesn't leak fuel out enough to be that noticeable. I found this to be true on my 6.2 diesel, so I put light air pressure to the end of a tank vent line and turned on the little compressor. I found the leak spot right away, made the line repair, and have had no more problems with stalling or over-revving.

Tank almost empty and husband put diesel in our 2001 rav 4 petrol car. car drove for a little while and has stopped and won't start. what needs to be done to rectify problem. thanks

luckily deisel in a gas engine will not wreck a motor but you have to take the tank off and drain it completely. when full of gas again may burp a bit but in no time purrs like a kitten....luck that wasnt a diesel with getting gas put in it that will wreck a diesel if you start an run it if no start same u can drain it off.flush tank ....but with a gas engine a little diesel will probably black smoke a little but should clean more than harm...thanks for using fixya.

How to start 92 npr diesel in cold weather

You will probably need some Ether based starting fluid. You may have to remove air filter to shoot a 2 second blast into the intake - but first try shooting the air intake with the 2 second blast and start vehicle. Diesel fuel tends to thicken in cold weather and a fuel additive like Lowes diesel fuel treatment may help keep your fuel fluid in colder weather. In cold weather, like on a night of clear skies causing low temperatures, a block engine heater will help to keep your fuel fluid - along with the diesel treatment. Block heaters are not too difficult to install depending on your vehicles configuration and how much room you have at a freeze plug, and are well worth the cost.
Hope this helps and please rate my solution!!

For old diesel engines. Some starting issues may be solved by upgrading your starter and checking your electrical system if it's providing enough power for the starter.
