new shape espace- 2.2dci any ideas on this not wanting to start for ages!

Renault espace new shape 2.2 dci. 50k history etc all of sudden instead of starting on the first or second turn over it take for ever . turns over sometimes until the start button stops and gives up and you have to press it again. eventually it starts and sunds like its catching up runs fine then on the drive. 90% of time drives ok then just cuts out on you comes up with electronice injection problem warning.

that goes and esp warning vcomes up along with at the same time fault developed abs warning. codes are saying sensor for abs, can get rid of code for esp on garages computer but it comes back soon.

Ee looked at the fuel line transparent tube and looked to be air in it and struggleing to suck it up. when its gets to engine it starts but turn her off and fuel line empties as there is no one way valve on this unlike my other 04 3.0 dci.

Mechanic thought it was the fuel sender- NO replaced that. then he said he`d heard something about diaphragm in fuel pump in engine bay may have snapped.
Then he said what about fitting a one way valve on fuel line so its doesnt struggle to get fuel up there , it will already be there. We havent!
then he said he talked to renault and mechanic said there a pain for it ...its usually the air flow meter or blocked Cat!

so here goes car out of blue starts taking forever to start. turns over and over and no catch. sounds a bit like when you have run a car down on fuel filled her up and are turning her to prime the system again. only thing is she takes forever to start again immediateley after having her running once more.
she can also cut out doing 70 on motor way with a full tank of juice.

Help me you Renault mad boffins i got a little girl who`s got CP and this is her specialy adapted motor we use for taking her to you need any more motivation. Dont say go to renault there 90 plus vat and hour i`d rather stick pins in my eyes!
help help SOS

I think I'm right in saying that there is a low pressure pump in the fuel tank which pumps fuel up to the high pressure pump.

Has this been checked for correct operation?.It should 'prime' the system when the ignition is switched on,and then stops.Then when the engine is started it continues running.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
