If your motor does not have glowplugs. Some don't, Crank the engine over a few times with throttle closed and holding the idle cut-off lever open, the one that stops fuel to the injector pump.
The rational is that it generates some heat in the combustion chambers by not allowing fuel in to cool things.
Then set your throttle, release the cut off leave, crank again and it should be a goer.
I was taught this trick and it made so much difference to the starting.
