***** 147 JTD 1.9 starting problems

Can anyone suggest how to get my car started. It will turn over and go to fire then die. This has been happening for the last month. It starts I drive it for about twenty miles then leave the car go to start and it just turns over. Got it started the first time, then the next was by towing. Changed the battery, had warning water in fuel so took to garage changed the fuel filter error code has gone when run through computer. Car was fine for a day then broke down again same problem. ECU did come up on the computer check so wondered about doing the ECU reset. Car has completed 58,000 miles service not due for another 6,000 miles, Car is eight years old. All help much appreciated.

Crank sensor needs replacing by the sounds of it. Fairly cheap part and an easy job to change.

Sounds like exactly the same fault as 1200 Triumph Trophy! Crank sensor every time!
