1998 E300 TD wont start

Hi all,
I have a 1998 MB E300 TD (165k miles) that would not start up this morning. I have never had this problem before. The engine will turn over but just sputters and wont fire up. The glow plug light goes out fine so I do not think that is the issue. Something odd I did notice was the steering wheel won't lock back up when the key is removed, so maybe an electrical relay. Otherwise i'm guessing its a fuel pump issue or lines with air in them. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

How old are the fuel tubings?
Can you see air in them?
