Is the electric fuel pump in the tank working? You should hear it running when you turn on the ignition. It runs on a timer for about 20 or 30 seconds (from memory) then stops. You will need to prime the whole system by turning the ignition on and off several times before you even try to start it. The electric pump primes the fuel system up to the transfer pump within the main injection pump.
Once the engine is running the transfer pump draws fuel from the tank and delivers it to the high pressure side of the pump via a suction control valve which is itself controlled by the ECU according to demand.
If you haven't already done so then prime the system fully by the ignition key on / off sequence and see if that works. Don't forget the obvious things:
No noise from the pump = investigate and rectify.
Enough fuel in the tank (don't laugh, been there, done that).
All pipe connections secure and fuel / air tight.
Unlikely to be fuel filter problem if you were not having fuel problems before.
Check all engine loom connections and crankshaft / camshaft sensor connections. If the ECU does not receive a signal from these it will not commence HP fuel injection.
There is normally no need to "bleed" the injector lines on a common rail diesel, the system is self-bleeding providing all connections etc are OK.
Is battery healthy enough to turn engine over fast enough to start?
