    Any warning lights? Has it been parked on a hill?

    Could well be the leak off pipes needing changed

    if its turnin over but not catching you need to know if its fuel or electrics related ,
    take a plug out and check it .
    if its wet with fuel then its obviously not gettin a spark so check down that route .

    Since a diesel won't have a spark, it'll more than likely be a fueling problem

    The leak off pipes are a common failure on the dti
