I just want to say to anyone that's having these sort of issues, do a compression check before you start monkeying around. At the very least you'll have a baseline to refer back too. Your dealing with some high pressures in a compression ignition engine(diesel) so your normal gas powered automotive tester is not going to work. Harbor freight has a rather inexpensive compression tester kit for diesels some will use the glow plug hole and some you'll have to pull the injector.
