How many 1.2 tdi's in uk?

Caffyns did have one technician who was the only person allowed to work on my 1.2Tdis; whether he's still there or not, I don't know.

As for L3 LUP, the first thing to do is a compression test. If that's OK, I would remove the injectors and get them checked. A company I have used before is Kent Injection Ltd in Detling. From previous experience with my A2, while you are at it, change the camshaft bearing shells - you will find that they are down to the copper.

Thanks a lot, RAB🙌🏼 These are all solid leads I can get looked into.
I did have a mobile mechanic over who pulled up a few fault codes and had a bit of a delve. I can’t recall the exact details but he’s formulating a plan-of attack to get back to smooth running..., which did naturally include injector considerations. He did find one ‘fault’ running on cylinder 2 which then swapped to cylinder 3 so he surmised is unlikely to be mechanical if it doesn’t stay constant... Then, an odd issue where, jiggling the jumble of loom cables that curl down, from below the tandem pump and then disappears, to the passenger side (lhd) under the oil filter, would cut out the engine virtually instantaneously, or almost die, like a hiccup, with only a slight wiggle of those cables, but....., not every time😣 Not ideal on the pothole riddled kent country roads. The smoking issue was ever present when on tick over and large revs would generate a lot more, but, being the diesel virgin I am, I’ve learned that time spent standing and unused (I’m talking months, here) can give any diesel very bad smoky/billowy issues where fuel gets ‘left in the system’. Maybe a good run will sort her out....?
