Default 1999 Audi Quattro A6 2.5 Turbo Problem Solved!

Hi Guys and Girls

I have got a smashing wee Audi A6 (Diesel) but it recently developed a problem...It just wouldn't start one day. Checked on a lot of forums and found that it was "Most likely to be a fuel pump."
I then found out that the fuel pump on top of the engine costs over 2200 just for the flipping pump! However after the Auto mobile Association let me down and scratching their heads I found a guy who did something I found worked but was very strange.
Basically he opened the fuel tank and inserted a high air pressure hose into the tank and pumped air in whist cracking a few of the injectors and it worked a treat. I know that my cars like mine have an issue with the fuel pump on the engine but I hope that this thread is of use to anyone worrying about a massive bill and I hope you try this first before spending money on a job that could maybe be fixed easily.
Happy motoring
