Default NOW MY TRUCK WON'T START!!! HELP!

My truck was just starting, but when I gave it throttle, it kept cutting off. So, some other peo-le gave me some advice and I did this, and it ran ok for a little while. Now, I went to try to tstart it again to run it, and it just simply won't start! I don't know why. Do your mixture setings have htat much to do with the engine starting?? And I checked the glow plug and it lit up, but I don't think that it lit to the very end of the coil. The part of the coul that sticks out of the plug wasn't lit. Is this a damaged plug?? Any advice on what to do would be greatly appreciated.

If you suspect that your plug is bad, then replace it. Compare it to a new plug to see if it's bad. And yes, needle settings DO have that much to do with it. Put it back to the stock settings and go from there. Also, if you're having this much trouble, then maybe you should try a different brand or type of plug. What kind of truck is it even?

What truck are we talking about?
What motor are we talking about?
Describe how it was running when all this happened?
What fuel are you using?
What plug is in the motor?

Need more info please.

Thanks, Matt
