Replacement starters may have to be shimmed for proper engagement with the ring gear.

Check your battery terminals to make sure they are not corroded make sure your wires are not corroded also. That would be the first place I look. You can check the wires by testing the resistance with a ohm meter.

most likely not as it will not be able to draw fuel through the electric pump .Well most vehicles with fuel injection and a pump in the tank i cannot draw the fuel through when someone has filled with diesel or the vehicle has been parked up for a while and the fuel goes dead

There is no power to a solenoid. The small ignition wire simply energizes a plunger so there is contact between the larger battery cables. (assuming that is still the remote mounted solenoid. Still basically the same thing with a starter mounted solenoid).
A weak battery can kill a starter/solenoid. Have it tested.
If you can get your hands on an inductive type ammeter you can also check on the current draw of the starter. Testing a starter on a bench when its free and not turning a motor does not much good.
Also make sure you have good power to the small wire that energizes the solenoid. Normally it should not drop bellow 10 volts while cranking. If it is then perhaps your ignition switch has some resistance.

Remove the gas-cap, to let air into the gas-tank.
You have a "vacuum" (low air pressure) inside the tank,
and the fuel-pump is not strong-enough to overcome that condition.

if you call a lock smith they can make a new key even without the old one this will be just as cheap as trying to pop out the lock

Some possible causes could be:

Vacuum leaks cause an engine to run lean witch can cause the vehicle to stall when put into gear.

Improper base idle adjustment can cause the vehicle to stall when shifted into drive or reverse

A malfunctioning or damaged carburetor can cause the vehicle to stall when shifted into drive or reverse

Improper ignition timing can cause the vehicle to stall when shifted into drive or reverse.

A malfunctioning or damaged transmission or torque converter can cause the vehicle to stall when shifted into drive or reverse

This problem shows 2 different Brand trucks. As a low cost effort, you might try a new Ignition switch. Diesel engines need a different wiring impulse since the engine does not fire a sparkplug.

This also means a different wiring sequence is used to shut them off. Could be shut-off device is stuck is in shut-off position and not resetting with ignition keyswitch.

Well, if that is true, then the only POSSIBLE culprits can be the plug wire or the plug itself.
