99 Ford diesel won't start when cold.

Have a 99 Ford 250 diesel and when it's cold it won't start unless I plug in the block heater to get it a little warm. I was told it might be a relay for the cold start. Now if I crank for a while it'll finally go.

It cranks over and over but just don't fire. By the way,,,,I did replace the cold start relay and no good. So I don't believe there's a problem with the batteries.
