That could indeed be your problem - fuel pressure wasting away from the leak. It shoudn't be difficult to remove but I'm not sure of the correct procedure, or how difficult it will be to re-seal. Must be a "master technician" around somewhere on these forums who can give you words of advice.

You might just be able to tighten the fuel pipe or it could have a hairline crack on the pipe?.Also check the leak off pipes,a rubber pipe that links between the injectors.

Been to see the specialist today not good news!!

Took a look and has advised the bottom end of the engine is worn hence problem starting due to crank case pressure (rings worn.)
Time to trade her in sods law she passed the MoT first time!!

From sifting through the threads this is an important one to note.

Hate to say it but from reading your experiences it would be perhaps wise for others to get their engines checked before buying glow plugs etc.

How did the garage check this ? Compression test ?

Buyers guide tips.

If your going to buy a diesel make sure it starts well from cold.
