    Welcome to the club, it's great to have you aboard. Don't know anything about Diesel but if you post your question in the technical section you will get more responses.

    I had the same problem with my 05 LLY duramax after I changed my fuel filter I noticed I had left the old O-ring on the drain plug. After I put the new O-ring on I had to prime it for the first 2-4 starts but after that it has started every time no problem. I hope that helps!
