my 97 did the same this past summer... my guages said my batteries were fine, then one day i noticed that the batteries were runnin a little low and didnt seem to charge when i was driving... ended up being my alternator, so i replaced that, it was fine for a few weeks then out of the blue it wouldnt start randomly. it was the wires on the alternator, they came undone.. i'd check the charge on your alternator make sure its puttin out enough juice, then check the plugs

first things to check would be

Glow plug relay
Oil in fuel filter housing as was said above....

if that fails have the injectors buzz tested and check for fuel pressure....also check the valve cover harnesses....

if you can read the high pressure oil pressure with a scanner...check that....the IPR o rings could be bad...
