I would sometimes give my old diesels a bit of gas when that happened but starting with your right foot on the break means tricky, not good to start with the left and right and get confused. You get condensation in your fuel or it was just too cold.

My ZX developed a fault where it wouldn't start until it had churned over for 10 seconds or so in the winter. No garage could fix it. Think it was an airlock where the diesel ran back from the engine. It had a rubber bulb which was used to bleed the air in the fuel supply. Those bulbs get pin holes in them. I sold it to my brother for £400 and he used it for another eight years like it. Summer starting was fine, winter you just got clouds of smoke when it started.
