2006 won't start without starting fluid

Had a fuel issue about a month ago now it only wants to start with starting fluid. After it starts it's sluggish. It's not throwing any engine codes currently and the fuel filters are new. Any suggestions?

also do you piston rings and cylinder walls a favor and stop using starting fluid, can you check for any codes for glow plugs? will the truck start if the block heater has been plugged in?

also check FICM volts as well, how old are your batteries, and have they been tested?
