    Vehicle : 1.9CDTi(120)SRi


    Engine : 1.9DT

    Year : 05

    Mileage : 100k

    Default

    I had this on my vec b dti, it was indeed the leak off pipes. Take the engine cover off and locate the injectors, the leak off pipes are the rubber pipes that link them all together, change all of the rubber pipes and the plastic Tee pieces. Once done it will still be a ****** to start for the first time but after that it will be fine. What happens is one of the pipes/joints becomes slightly perished so when the car is standing for a while it let's air in allowing the diesel that is held in the pipes to drain back to the lowest point leaving air in the fuel lines just like when you put a drinking straw in some water then put your finger over the end then pull the straw out, the water will stay in the straw until you remove your finger allowing the air back in.
