E320 CDi Estate
My e320 estate has suddenly become very reluctant to start in the mornings. Once started its fine and runs good as new all day, till the next morning then off we go again, crank, crank, crank, and eventually vrooom. I would guess its fuel feeding back to the tank. I think I saw a fix for this way back on this forum but can't find it on a thread search, can anyone help, or suggest a fix?

This will be air in the fuel lines, and some O rings will probably need to be replaced. Your car must be a diesel by the description of the fault. If you do a search here there are many post on this subject

Could be a injector leaking off??

indeed it could cole. i often find if it is the o-rings that it will fire for a second before you get the "oh-my-god-will-it-start-i'm-going-to-be-late-again"

to the o/p, search leak/ing off on the forum for an easy check. also check those clear fuel pipes for any air bubbles.
