Forum rules

When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year and model in the post subject/thread title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Car Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot.

For Tech II issues or help requests please state the following in your title ''Tech 2 help required - state issue and your location ''.

Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.

Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum, note compliant threads will be moved back when the mod/admin team next visit the Pit Lane. if your thread has been sat in the Pit Lane for 24hrs+ after editing, pm Tech II to request release)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

Hi everyone, hoping someone can help me. Having a bit of a mare with the car the past week and a half, I've had to do the gear turret repair, glue the swirl flaps and clean and blank off the egr valve, but after that she was running great despite her 150k on the clock. On my way home from work last night however I got the limited performance message before the car promptly died on me.
Took a look under the bonnet and the clip that secures the leak off pipe to injector 1 was missing, causing the pipe to pop off the injector and spew diesel everywhere.
Got towed the rest of the way home and had a go at fixing it this morning. Re seated the leak off pipe but the car refuses to start. I've cranked it til the battery was flat, then jumped it from a neighbour's car and cranked it and cranked it. I can manage to get it to fire up for a few seconds using easy start where it revs up to about 4000 then chugs a few times and dies again.
I'm thinking (hoping) it's an air lock issue, but dies anyone have suggestions on what else it could be or how to start her up?
OBD shows no error codes FYI (torque, not opcom).
There is diesel still in the tank also, SID showing about 50 miles remaining, I'd estimate having lost about 2-3 litres of fuel.
