Guessing from "prime the bulb" it's diesel?
Yes then you have a leak in the fuel system that's letting in air to the fuel supply line/fliter.
You could try a new good quality fuel filter but if that doesn't do it then the fuel system needs vacuum tested to find the problem.
Air's getting in somewhere.
