If it turns over with a spanner/socket, make sure it turns the proper way and see if you can run it through a few full revolutions to make are nothing is hitting anything internally and that you have good compression then look at the starter motor, see if that's crapped out

The 1st time I tried I got nothing the battary had died so got a new one tried again then got the clunk straight away so checked everything made sure everything was connected turned the engine by hand all fine so tried the key again and just got the clunk noise again.

Has the new Battery got the same cranking amps as the old one also i think new batterys should be around 13.5v as it will drop a few volts while cranking then when it starts the alternator should have a charge rate of about 13.5v i could be wrong and i'm sure someone will be along to correct me if i am hope u get to the bottom of the problem :rolleyes:

Battery alone should show around 12v usually 12.4v. When running and no lights on should hit around 13.5v-14v. Voltage doesn't always tell the story. My Battery can show 12v but wont start the car(dodgy Battery that I still haven't replaced). Like stuartie says when it comes to starting power it's all about the CCA.

12v doesn't mean it's ok, the only way to know for sure would be a drop/load test on the Battery, if it's brand new you would think it should be fully charged but that may not be the case, I can't see it being hydro locked as you said it happened straight away which I'm  assuming was soon as key was turned and before any/much fuel was injected ?? And also cos it turns over with the crank nut, without seeing the car I'm thinking Battery or starter or associated wiring

Yh car ran fine no problems before hand only reason I changed bits was for my map on Wednesday another person has suggested hydro locked I did prime the pump a few times before starting as fitted new lines and checked for any leaks going to have another look at it today and try the things that have been suggested just hope I haven't killed the engine

It can't be hydro locked if it turns over by hand both ways, it's one of the first things I thought of that's one of the reasons why I asked if you could turn it over on the crank nut, if you can turn it over and get it to go through the 4 compression strokes, one for each cylinder then it's gotta be something else

As Neil suggested whip the plugs out to see if they're covered in fuel and see if it will turn over without compression (no plugs in)

What phase rails and injectors are they ?

Did you have to use phase adapters and if so are the adapters and both of the o rings fitted correctly?

Also check the "fuseable link " in the under bonnet fuse box . If it's blown check your inlet manifold and engine earthing before fitting a new one

The fuseable like is fine already checked there phase 1 rails with phase 2 injectors had to use the adapter kit all sealed up on the outside going to get the plugs out now see what they look like and turn it over
