    I would check you leek off pipes you may have a t piece broken or cracked pipe. As you said it won't start it is diesel related if air is in the system it will not start and it would have given you a puff of white smoke.

    Default hi sb1 uk

    now you have said that about the pipes it does make sence about 5 mile previous to breaking down i hit wat appeared to be a pot hole and never stopped the car until i approached the junction in were i broke down
    a call out guy never checked this he said it might of been the hydrolics pushing oil into the cylinders but shorley there would be some sign off this as there are no leaks would there be leek off pipes under the car
    thx again dave
