    Left the car over night with front facing downhill. It started fine but it cut out soon after. It has not started since.

    put diesel in, and either use another car and jump leads to get it to eventually fire.
    Or as above but use another car to tow start.

    if that doesnt work then uve got an air lock.

    on the DTI engine you can losen the injectors a little and turn over and nip them back up while turning over to remove air locks
    more commonly done when the injector seals have been done but can only presume it would have the same effect.

    But...........the engine feels wierd though. It's like something is choking it when I rev it. It is due to service soon and it needs a good EGR cleanup though...
