Greetings All,

I have 2005 L322 RR Vogue 3ltr TD6, recently we had a mouse problem, the pesky bleeders chewed up the main fuel line that runs from the fuel filter to the injector pump, the one that has two clear plastic pipes and rubber bit on either end with a tee piece in the middle. Replaced the pipe and turned on the ignition, heard the air gurgle away but no start, cracked off the first injector and it was dry at the rail, can't get to any of the other injectors because of the manifold. A friend suggested we needed to get the air out and in the absence of a bleed valve, we got it running with Easy Start. Left it running on the drive for around 20 minutes, stopped and started it a few times and started but seemed to be a little more laboured than normal. Whilst I was trying in vain to refit the air filter hosing it cut out and wouldn't start again. Another can of easy start later we had it ticking over on the drive so took it for a test drive, 200 yards down the road is an incline and as I started to climb and accelerate it cut out. Pulled over and it started again no problem so off I went again, managed maybe half a mile on the flat but it cut out again. Pulled over with the nose up a slight incline, started again but if I rev it above 2500 rev it cut out, did this a couple of times and then it wouldn't start even with Easy Start so had to get towed back. There are no errors on the dash and the management light which was on went out before I pulled out of the drive.

I am waiting for a mate with a LR diagnostic to call in and take a look but I would be interested to hear from anyone with any suggestions on what could be wrong or what to take a look at next.
