WHY WONT MY MASDA START

1999 Mazda 323

Engine Mechanical problem
1999 Mazda 323 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 140000 miles

i bought my diesel masda 1 year ago from a friend who had no problems with it. However for the past 3 months the car now has problems starting, regardless if the car has been running or is cold. It sounds like it is about to start but more often than not now it does'nt and I have to get some to push me (not handy!) I've been to masda and spent money on getting a diognostic check but no answers came up, they also changed to glow plugs and it made no difference. Its been in a specific diesel garage for over a week and they think it could be a fuel pump but this could cost £500! Has anyone had similar problems? Should I cut my losses or buy a second hand fuel pump and get someone to fit it?
HELP!
