Do you have any check engine lights on? Most diesels have a safety feature that shuts down the engine and puts it in "limp mode" when there is a problem somewhere . It will stay in limp mode till repaired and the code cleared. You should get a code with a diagnostic.

Check your fuel filter they have water seperators built in and a drain petcock on the bottom. Put a bucket or something to catch fuel underneath and open the drain to allow the filter to empty. I'd recommend replacing the filter between 90 days and 6 months and try adding some diesel kleen additive this works exceptionally well in the winter months. As long as the cylinders aren't misfirng you may have some restricted injectores. I have a fleet of diesel trucks and that is 90% of my problem with them. Especially if you use an auxillary or day tank to fill up from as moisture can seep in through the vent cap

You could have one of two problems that are related to running out of diesel. Either your fuel filter is clogged and you need to replace it or you still have some air in your fuel line and it needs to bled out. Normally, the modern diesel fuel systems bleed themselves but it is worth a look.

Perhaps when the fuel pump was replaced, the filter was not replaced, or the dirt in the tank was not cleaned out. Sometimes these problems are a result of the filter getting clogged up and fuel is not able to reach the fuel rail. The car sits for a while, the sediment falls from the filter, it then starts and runs for a time, all the while, little by little, the sediment recollects and starves the fuel rail again.
