    Hi folks.. first post, but have "lurked" on learned a lot!

    Have a w203 C270CDI first reg 03/03. Starting from cold ok, but when hot wont start, turns over ok, but will not even try.
    Main dealer diagnostics say injector down and losing pressure when stood.
    Being a simple soul, I thought replacement injector and perhaps a seal or two! Wrong! - "Sorry sir... 5 new injectors, new seals, new pipes = £1100.00 plus fitting"
    Cant seem to get a definitive why, just that the original set up has now been modified, with originals no longer avaiable.
    Anybody with any information care to enlighten me before I part with my wifes next years clothing allowance??

    How many miles?
    Not sure why they have to replace all 5. And btw the MB price for the injectors is a huge mark up on the price from Bosch direct.
    I would get another opinion from a good MB indi.

    .
    Battery and starting motor must be in very good shape.
    This, 5-cylinder engine need exceptional high revs, before program even starts to spray.
    This could be warm engine harm.

    I was wrong.
    If there is enough rail pressure, fuelling starts immediately.
