Well it is hard to understand what is going on here but will give it a try. Does it eventually start does it run good when it does start. With the small amount of info that you have provided it is hard to trouble shoot if it cranks good but doesn't want to start then we can assume your battery and starter are OK. Does it have a spark when this occurs? We need to determine what we are loosing at the time of the no start. Spark Fuel or compression. Try to figure out which one you are not getting the next time it happens.

It is a 2.5l diesel 4cyl. To get it started I would spray starting fluid and it would start and it runs find for the whole day. It has no glow plugs.I had the fuel filter change I had the lift pump change and I had the timeing belt change.I purchess a battery with a1000cc so that I would get some good swing. But unless I spray it, it wont start.

Sounds like your fuel system is leaking down. Try to inspect all the lines and look for any fuel leaks.

Thanks for your reply.I went ahead and check for fuel leaks and found none.I also check to see if I was geting fuel at the injector pipes when it dont want to start in the morning an it is geting fuel. But some how I think I am not geting enough swing. Could that cause it not to start?

Yes that could cause it to be hard to start. Did this occur after any recent repairs? I would think a 1000cc amps. Would be sufficient unless your getting a huge voltage drop during start up.

That is great to hear. That was my point about the voltage drop. The battery being new the next thing would be to check for a voltage drop that would lead you to the starter. Good Job and Good Luck.
