Shamrock6,
As jppp suggests, you might need to try bleeding the fuel lines of air. You don't know if you might need a new lift pump (from the tank) or injector pump (high pressure). Filters need to be changed regularly but I'm sure you've done that by now.

The book I linked to actually covers this for most diesel engines, and other usual maintenance stuff. I've never been sorry that I bought it even though I have a gas engine (Atomic 4).
