Had mine for 6 years/ 170K+ miles since new in 06 and always did my oil, filters and transmission service. What you describe never worked for me, in fact I still have the manual somewhere and there is a procedure for priming/bleeding in case you run out of fuel and it is not that simple.

Those leaks are kind of perplexing. I assume your fuel system pressure is fine. The hoses surely are too new to have rotting issues, which kind of only leaves the clamps. And hey, nice watch!

Just another reason why the CDI is better than a 240d.

Yep, if you love to replace sensors, a 616 is a really bad engine.
