bleeding 2.4 jtd common rail engine

hi all had some work done on the injectors of my 00 156 2.4 jtd (136bhp) and the car was put back together again but would start. kept turning over but wouldnt start was told it was probably an air lock in the system. and because its a common rail engine and runs at very high pressure it cant be bleed out the old fashion way dont want to bring it to thegarage as itll cost a fortune. any one with any advice or sugeation i would be very gratefull

give it a tiny squirt of (happy gas) easy start . it gives the engine a head start to to get the HP pump working. it only needs a tiny bit or you will hydraulic the engine
