If you can start it with 'startezy' spray and it'll run ok then the
fuel is ok (ok enough to run, it may have petrol in).

check your glowplugs by disconnecting the wire from each in turn and
checking electrical resistance between the plugs terminal and the
engine block, there will be no continuity from a blown plug.

it's unlikely that all the plugs have blown together as they are
usually wired in paralell. turn your interior light on and then try to
activate the glow plugs, the light should dim very noticably as the
glow plugs draw huge current, if this does not happen there is a
problem in the wiring to the glow plugs.

Some folks may have more specific answers if you can supply the
vehicle type, engine, year.


Regards.
Mark.
