Hi Roy, thanks for the quick response really appreciated. The breakdown people did the test back at the garage and another garage came out and did a test with another bit of kit, both times the engine wasn't running, I didn't know you couldn't diag test while the engine wasn't running (I am by no means a mechanic of any kind)
I know a guy who can check the engine compression so will ask him to do that, (just completely skint and need to keep cost to an absolute minimum) the recovery guys said there was fuel pressure as they unscrewed something near the fuel rail and pressure / fuel popped out..
I have read this advice relating to an injector problem and wondered if you think it is worth my trying...
"As Techiloyd says, the injector connection is the problem. I'll bet you the injector was perfectly okay. All they should have done is disconnect the injector plug, spray with WD40 and reconnect. Then disconnect and do the same with the multiplug where all the injectors join the main wiring loom.
As Techiloyd says, this is very common and all the C3 1.4s I have been to, have never had a new injector."

(it reads similar to my issue)
You advice Roy and anybody else reading is massively appreciated.
Thank you, look forward to your reply.
