Hello, most likely you have a hydrualic lock on the motor becuase the cylinder has oil or liquid in the combustion chamber. You will need to either remove the glow plugs or injectors then rotate the motor to push the fluid out. Sometimes turning the motor in reverse with a hand tool will help to disperse the liwuid into other cavities and allow the motor to then be hand turned forward several times before starting. Make sure fluid levels are okay and if needed i would be ready with clipboard or solid object to block off intake hose to kill the motor should it start to run away on the oil. Most likely wont happen if you remove the oil first. thanks, Dan
