Starting Issues!!!

I have an '03 and it has not been running since Feb. Dealer changed glow plug, fuel assembly lines, cleaned injectors and changed the injector pump. After big bucks, it still doesn't run. Any suggestions???

What were the original symptoms that led to the truck being in its current state?

The orginal problem was contaminated fuel. The dealer changed everything and claimed to have it running. I picked it up drove 25 miles parked it and it wouldn't start it again. Took it back to the dealer and then they claimed the codes led to the injector pump. Changed the pump and the supply hose because the hose had a leak. The last code that was pulled EGR.
