    I paid £360 for 2 second hand ones , the leak off test has to be home made and is attached to the injectors individually on the left hand side , if you inbox me I will give you my phone number and you can call

    hi aF Tim that will be your problem, everthing that you have described is down to the lexus, ( dont waste your time going to lexus they will never work it out), do a leak off test, change the injectors that are faulty. If you can get injectors from a 2008 car onwards, as denso changed them in 2007, ( I wonder why???) changing the injectors is easy, just make sure the engine is warm when you pull them good luck. ps then sell the car, the is220d is the worst car that lexus made in my opinion

    hi normski, thanks for that it is a MK3 but i will check the drainage holes. the car is absolute blast, i love it. badger, i just lost faith in the car and while is was running well, i believe there will be another problem around the corner. i have been put off diesels for life, personally i think lexus knew the problems but don't want to admit it. will probably find that it fails the emissions soon,,, lol

    hi i did a manual leak off test and it showed up fault, its just a bit of a pain in the ***** as i had to push pipe and use PTFE tape to make a seal. if that had not shown up the problem you can have them tested i paid £30 as i was unsure about number 3 when in was under pressure it leaked . to be honest i am sure the other 2 old ones will do the same thing at some point but i am not keeping car so as long as they are ok for now that's all i need. i have seen the stuff about 2 stroke oil , again i will never buy another diesel. and i don't think lexus were joking .lets have it right they were the people who said we will keep going until we sort the problem ... took the car to work today and got the injectors programmed into the ecu. car worked fine no lights no problems, i just don't trust it any more

    Hi It's 6c here at the moment and the car started mega quickly give it a run no lights no issues no smoke . It's going down to 0c over night so I will have an answer by 6 in the morning . It cranks and starts before the dials get half way round it has never done that .
