Can brain damage cause als?

Possibly

Amyotrophic_lateral_sclerosis
Recent research suggests that a history of multiple concussions increases the risk of ALS, but more research is needed. Fortunately, the vast majority oof those with concussions will never get ALS. The cause of ALS is largely unknown; genetic factors play a role in some cases. Lyme disease may cause symptoms very similar to ALS & should thus be ruled out.

Can diesel fumes cause brain damage?

Not alone

Brain_injury
The new diesel 2 is very clean. It is not toxic. Old diesel fumes could be irritating, but not dangerous. The major risk is too much fumes with carbon monoxide instead of oxygen. This can occur with any exhaust especially poorly functioning heaters or old cars.
