    Been serviced regularly etc? (and I mean the work actually done, not just a logbook stamp).

    Because initially it sounds like fueling or lack of air feed... Fuel filter/air filter, maybe even the glowplugs could be at fault.

    That's a sound place to start looking anyway, because the other guys are about to come in and lay down the really expensive problems you could face
