I had similar problem some months ago it turned out to be the pipe under wheel arch (corroded) where cap filler is.
my problem was solved by replacing pipe which is connected to rubber pipe fixed to tank and filler hose from filler cap.
tools neede llong large cross head screwdriver, small socket set ( 12 mm , 13mm , 14mm) 150 mm extension bar. to remove bracket bolts
possibly some new pipe clips as others may be corroded.
you will need to jack up car and remove wheel to gain access.
took me about 1 hr, somebody with competent DIY skills should be able to deal in couple of hrs
check with dealer as there are two different pipes on different models one is longer.
my one was the one with the piggybacked overflow pipe.
small hands are advantage

While the car is cold, take off the radiator cap. If you cannot see coolant, fill the radiator with coolant until you can see coolant standing in the radiator. Start the car, and go look at the coolant. Can you see a steady stream of air bubbles in it? If you can, the air is coming into your cooling system (and coolant is exiting) from a leaking head gasket, cracked head, or cracked block. Did you remove the head when you installed your headers? If so, the gasket was probably improperly replaced. Are you getting white smoke from the exhaust? That's an indicator of water in the exhaust.

put the car on a lift and look for short plastic tube about the diameter of your pinky and clear it out , most likely dirt or leaves plug it up

I would start by looking for the valve on the fuel rail (or at the filter housing), if you disconnected the fuel pipe from the filter feed you will have a lot of air in the system (and diesels do not like air in the feul system) you will need to have someone crank the motor over while you push in on the schrader valve to release the air out of the system until you get fuel to flow steady out of that port (this may take a short period of time), then you should be able to start the vehicle... would also recommend replacing the fuel filter as well. Hope this helps.
