does the pull start come out and retract easily? because if it does then maybe its your glow plug. take out your glow plug and check if the tiny heat coil is pushed in and if it is then the glow plug is no good. and also check for the redness of the glow plug. if it doesnt look red and isnt glowing then maybe its your glow starter battery . Basically if the tiny heat coil is pushed in then the heat will not reach the fuel that is needed to start the car or truck.
