Remember - a diesel needs fuel AND compression to create enough heat to fire the fuel. I would have your compression tested first - low compression will cause hard starting. I would guess that the engine is attempting to start(firing but not enough to keep it going)until it starts running. Once the engine is firing there is enough compression to keep it going.How many miles on the engine?? How's the oil consumption?? I assume the problem is hard starting whether or not the engine is hot or cold - right??
