Default Car stalls in 1st gear

I can't find any posts about this.

When my car is warmed up and I turn it off and restart it after a minute or two it starts right up but when I go to pull out in 1st gear it stalls and will continue to do this until I start it and let it idle for a minute or rev it up. It seems like it is not keeping furl pressure but I am new to diesels.

It also starts hard in the morning.

One other thing when I changed the fuel filter the car had been sitting overnight and i read to change it quickly or plug the fuel lines to reduce fuel from leaking out. There was almost no fuel coming out of any of the lines when I did this.

Is there a leakdown valve in these cars?
