I don't think the smart comment was needed, i was only trying to help you get your car running in a orderly manor.
You never answered my original question. Do the glow plugs work? Have you checked for power at the 5th glow plug. Are you sure you have the buss wires connected correctly between the glowplugs?
There are VERY few things this engine needs to run. You need heat, compression, atomized fuel, fast starter, and air.
