Hi thanks for a reply. Would an ohm reader all reading at 15 ohm not be as sufficient? Could it still be faulty?
Thanks again to all of you taking time to give some advice. She’s booked in next Tuesday if I can’t get anything out of her the weekend. I’ll be sure to let you know when I find out
The noid light confirms that the injectors are actually being signaled to open. Measuring resistance only determines shorts or opens in circuits.

Then the next thing to check is do you have compression?

I am beginning to wonder if the cam belt has broken or stripped a tooth. Any ideas when it was last changed?

It may have also gone hydraulic if the water was deep enough damaging the rods and pistons?

Are you certain you last filled up with petrol and not diesel?

You could either borrow a compression tester , you will need the long reach thread adaptor or a long reach rubber cone type of push on and hold there adaptor for whichever tester you can use.
You could also undo approx 4x 10mm socket bolts and pull the front cover back slightly to see if both cams move when someone cranks it over for you.
Hi, on my mechanics 1st glance he thinks gasket, he’s going to do a compression test today. Be gutted if it is

If the head gasket was blowing across 2 cylinders , it would still start on the remaining 2 but obviously be misfiring. So I think the problem maybe more serious.

If thats the case you could buy a replacement engine from Ian Griffiths his details are on this site "Puma Bits"
