Fill the fuel filter with fresh diesel if it has a bulb priming pump, pump the fuel to fuel pump and bleed that, if not crank over and bleed injectors. it should start ok.

Does the glow plugs glow ok have you removed them and see them glow?

Do you get a good 4 seconds of heat at start?

while i try to switch on the ignition key the glow plug indicator shows only 2 to 3 seconds. Is that normal.so is their any problem with relay. mine is Y20 DTH engine(2.0 DTI).Thanks

yea i removed the glow plugs and check with external battery . It glows properly and i check with the multi meter. It shows 1.7 Ohms , and then i compare with the new glow plugs in the parts shop. That is also showing 1.5 to 1.6 Ohms.Now i renew the fuel filter and leak off pipe. so do i need to bleed the system. If needed can i use a big syringe to bleed the system. thanks

I do not believe there is a bleed procedure on these.
