Hi,

Daft one possibly, try starting the engine in gear with clutch pedal depressed, very slowly raise clutch pedal (to engage the clutch)

If you find roughly the point where it starts key off & repeat ( with pedal closer to that point)

If it starts sooner it sounds as if the DMF is FOOKED.

Else, when was fuel filter renewed?
