  15. it could be as uour da said they big end bearings could be gone but that only happens the majority of the time if they are starved of oil. oli could also be right but if the timing has skipd it would be very hard to start as the injector pump would be off! I recomend that you put on a new timing belt and get the timing set up to all the factory marks, pull sump off check big end bearings for ruffness or deep scores , iff ther ok service car and use lucas injector cleaner, 10W40 heavy diesel oil. because all that is easier than trying to pull out them damn injectors. and on the plus side if it is an injector you have piece of mind that eveyting else is tickety-boo! hope any of this novel i just wrote helps lol
