    Looking at his profile it looks like a 1.9 120 cdti.

    Do you have the engine management lights on?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    So if someone dives you a tow, it will run
    Equally, if the car does actually run and you apply power it switched off

    I certainly wouldn't be turning the engine over for as long as 10 minutes
    Perhaps a dozen times at the most

    How about a seized butterfly valve, that seems to be becoming the fault of the month now!

    Get the codes read. Makes it easier than guessing what could be wrong.

    Yes, the VX garage will charge about £30 to read the fault codes - or if your a member of the AA they can do it too, just tell them you have broken and they will come out. The codes will be fairly specific to the actual problem and if read correctly then will really help to sort your problem out.
