Unhappy omg my merc!

today I started my 92 300SD its been about a month since I didnt start her. when I started her she needed good cranking about 3times. and when did start was running real rough car was vibrating. and she calm down after 20 seconds. I was really worried that car was violently shaking like cold puppy. I hope I didnt cause any engine damage.

Glow plugs? Air in the fuel lines?

If you didn't have any signs of the same problem before you parked it, then I agree that it sounds like a slow leak in the fuel system may have partially filled you fuel lines with some air. Any other symptoms? What happens when you try to start it now?
