    Injector seals on these can be a problem I think? Other one is blocked fuel return pipes...

    Though injector seals at that price!

    What did garage says?

    No luck mate. I know how you feel.
    I had the same problem on my astra 2.0 dti. If I left it on a slope with the rear end down the slope the fuel would drain back to the tank and the ****** wouldnt start. Left it the other way and it started fine. Went on like this for a while till it died on the motorway.
    New injector pump cost me £850. Could not complain too much I suppose because the car had done 140K plus when it died.
    Traded it in for my Vectra end of last year.

    Vehicle : Jaguar XF 3.0D V6

    Trim : Black

    Engine : 3.0D V6

    Year : 0000

    Default

    Does it not start at all???

    If it takes AGES cranking to get it going, and after AGES there is white diesel smoke and a STRONG smell of diesel, then I would say it is the leak off pipes. These are small bore rubber tubes going from injector to injector and then returns to the fuel system.
    If the engine was running fine then night before, and then failed to start in the morning, I would not leap into condemning the injection pump just yet. They normally don't suddenly go, unless the electronic control unit has failed suddenly.

    IMO, if the engine fires EVENTUALLY, then I would suspect the leak off pipes.

    the control unit is the main engine 'BRAIN'..and the pump will be an awful lot of money..in the order of one thousand pounds..

    I'd get the car fully checked out before you attempt any repairs..you could get lucky and have something simple fixed for 100 quid..or it could be far more involved..get it checked out properly as it will save you money in the long run..
