    Unhappy 2.0dti Not Starting

    Only recently joined this site and unfortunately my first post is a problem. I parked the car at work and when I came back to it late in the evening it wouldn't start. It's as if it's out of diesel or not getting any but there's half a tank full. After i tried it a couple of times i was getting a spanner light as well. Is there a checklist i should go through step by step to try and remedy this. Also is there any kind of temporary solution to get it going so I could get it home or to the mechanics if need be. Thanks in advance

    Vehicle : shatch- sports hatch

    Trim : cheap plastics

    Engine : metal

    Year : 1901

    Mileage : 999

    Default

    If it was me,i'd check the leak off pipes first,to make sure they are not perished or split,these are rubber fuel return pipes fitted to the injectors going to the fuel pump.
    Then i would crack open the top injector pipe union nuts a little,one at a time and get someone to crank the engine over until i saw fuel,and tighten the nut back up,repeating on all 4 injectors,and then crank it again if fuel is coming out,and hopefully it should fire up.
