03' with 140k on it with a banks six gun and speedloader. i hit the key and it just turns over like it is out of fuel, I hate to say it but a small shot of starting fluid and it fires, then runs fine. what's going on with that?

Starting fluid is bad for diesels. When is the last time you changed your fuel filter? Have you tried to prime the fuel filter when it won't start?

i know the starting fluid is bad for it but work is important and the dmax is only set of wheels that I can drive now, I will try to by-pass the banks stuff and see what happens

ether is like crack for diesels. Once you start using it, it will want more. Have you checked your MAF sensor? It could be a crank position sensor too.
