Hi, the leakoff pipes have O rings on them where they go into the injectors. If you get just one O ring not sealing right, then air gets into the fuel pipe system and causes what  you're experiencing. Inspect the green O rings carefully, I think some ebay sellers do replacements. Also, the fuel  pipe O rings on the connectors to the fuel filter can get damaged  but I've only personally experienced the leak-off pipe problem. btw, you need diesel-proof ones, not 'normal' black O rings.
