    Check the vac pipes from the vacuum pump to the various diaphraghms via their respective solenoids. Also check the hoses to the turbo for splits.
    Other wise look on the forum for people in your area with Op COm or Tech 2 to get the codes read.

    touch the top of the glow plug with a live wire from the battery you should get a small but deffinate spark. one that doesn't spark is dead

    Boost sensor is in roughly the same position as the CVDTI 150. Look in the How 2 section there are pics etc
