1994 turbo idi no start

hey guys. My truck has been acting up the past coulpe of days. Starting the first time, then quickly dieing. Cranks for about 30 seconds before it starts back up. then runs rough for first 2 miles then back to normal. I went out today and did nothing but crank. havent tried to start it for almost 2 days. I think i might have an air leak in the return fuel lines. Im guessing it sat for so long all the pressure bled out of the lines and now it is starving for fuel. Any other ideas would be helpful. Also what is the best way to reprime the system?

On a seperate note brakes didnt work this morning either. Looked at resivoir and dry. Dont know if its just a ****ty week or what.

thanks
nik

Not too sure on an idi, but the obvious fuel pump maybe getting weak? Is it acting like your glow plugs aren't working at all? Any smoke on startup?

white smoke this morning while cranking, bout 50 degrees here this morning. hard for me to diferentiate between no fuel and glow plugs not working. I think glow plugs are working, the past few cold mornings it started ok. it would just fire right up then quickly die like it was starving of fuel.

Hmmm, see i am not familiar with the older engine, but in the 7.3 psd you could take the fuel filter cap off and watch to see how fast the pump filled the fuel bowl. Not sure if your idi has a similar setup. Any chance that you got water in the fuel or when was the last time you changed the fuel filter?
