Hi Steelpower,

This has just happend to me before Christmas.
I changed the fuel filter, now runs perfectly.
If you change it yourself remember to fill the
new filter with diesel before fitting,
engine will start up straight away.

Remove the old filter by pressing in the plastic
lugs on top of filter, its fiddly but can be done without the right tool.

Hope this is of help.
