you said you changed the relays.. the only thing that i can think of is there is a relay that decides how long the glow plugs warm up for and how long the "wait to start light" stays on. Ive heard of this going out and not letting your glow plugs stay on long enough. My truck has a hard time starting in cold weather but i turn the key on, wait for the "wait to start" light to go off and turn it off, repeating this 4 or 5 times, it will start. Maybe you didnt change that relay....other than that, I dont know

ORRRR you said it ran good for a couple days after you changed the gaskets MAYBE that harness in there is gettin worn and flaky... maybe u bumped the harness changing the gaskets and it got a good connection for a bit... that happened in my 99.5 and it ran vey good after i fix that.
