    Hi just joined the club and I have a problem already
    My 300td wont start it turns over and almost fires up but then dies
    Lots of white smoke from the exhaust
    I managed to get it to tick over for a miniute or to but it was strugggling at about 500 revs
    The car has been standing for a few months but previously it was fine
    Any suggestions
    Cheers

    Air leak into the clear fuel pipes.
