What do you mean.. the engine turns over but does not start? The starter motor doesn't work? Did the engine when it did start run smoothly or not at all? Did your glow plug light come on after you started the van when it worked?

If you can elaborate on what problems you have been having then it might be easier to sort things out. The other thing is to remember your air filter. Changing that might be also prudent. Your poor van's got to breath. Have you tried fresh diesel in it too?

Cheers

Could be the pressure regulator on the fuel rail, seems it has two small O rings which decay, causing difficulty in starting and eventual non starting. My 108CDi did same thing, I suspected air in system but was advised by independent MB van specialist to start it in Easy Start ( be careful just a 2 second blast into the air intake AFTER the air filter, it will knock like the bottom end is about to go - not nice stuff ). That started the engine allowing me to drive to specialist who fixed for an hours labour and about £10 worth of parts.
Hope this helps, but don't go mad on the Easy Start, if it will not start first attempt, wait a minute or so and try again.

Regards

ZX9

i think i see where adamuk is going , did you check the glow plug relay box,is it clicking when the plug light goes out, does the plug light come on at all , these are simple things to check and eliminate.

Have a look at this thread mate, maybe you need to get the Cam sensor checked as this man had experienced same sort of fault, I think.

Is the vehicle hard to start hot and cold?

ZX9 is correct in what he is saying, Check the o rings on the regulator on the rail, then check the injector leak off of all the injectors.

Very rarely the crankshaft position sensor?

If it starts with a Sniff of Easy, Then its likely to be your High pressure fuel pump. Really you need it plugging into STAR to see the Live data of the fuel rail pressure, it needs to be 225+psi to start up!

Also this would show if it was camshaft/crankshaft syncronization fault. Usually this fault is heat related, Letting the vehicle start when cold, but when hot it won't!

It could do with a Diagnostics just to see if any codes appear, or if live data gives you any bad areas.

If you get it done, post up here to give us all a better clue!
