I have a 1984 Nissan 720 Kingcab pickup with a 2.5L diesel engine, my problem is the truck sat from 1995 until 2010 with a full tank of fuel, I have drained the fuel tank and changed all fuel filters, the truck will not start on it's own (meaning) if I use starting fluid I can get it started and it runs ruff but drives very good, I purged the fuel system of air, but it seems the new spin on filter with water sensor leaks air around the sensor, can that be the only problem keeping it from startin

New fuel pump, strainer, and fuel filter. Still the same problem.
