If you arnt getting any fuel to the injector then the high pressure pump is not working or no fuel getting to it to work.It is a tempramental fuel system that needs an experianced mech. to sort it out.

My ddiesel Cleo is dripping diesel from around tank erea put another jubilee clip round pipe that goes in to tank but still leaking anybody have any idears its a Clio 1'5 thanks

it may well be coming from the fuel lines or the tank sender unit seal , remove rear seat base and there will be a plastic cover , remove this and you will have access to the sender unit and fuel line , note the fuel line conection to the sender unit required particular pliers to remove without causing damage , you may well see there is a pool of diesel there so start engine and see if any diesel leak is visable and take the appropriate action ,there is also a anti theft type design to most fuel tanks, this being a small tank that if filled first when refueling, then the fuel transfers to the main tank so i'd check for that as well , usually behind wheel arch liner , hope this helps
