My 2007 207 1.6 hdi with 170 000km on clock. FSH

Car starts easily in the morning or when it was standing for a couple of hours.

When the car was driven to work about 30km or short distance to the shop and i switch it off, the car does not want to start. Struggles alot. Push start. Place it in Reverse and play with clutch to get it started in gear.

Temperature is normal under 90 degrees Celsius and oil is under half which is guess is 100 degrees Celsius.

The car goes as normal when the motor is turning. No lag. No smoke.

Oil at the injector closest to breather
Oil at the breather
Oil at the turbo coming from breather side

So the diesel struggle to start when the car is at normal temperature

Oil level is all good. Driven 6000km no oil topup.

Water was added two or three times as it reached MIN line.

I am thinking the following
Piston Rings
Head Gasket
Rocker Gasket
Injector Seals

Check under the bonnet for a fuel priming bulb, if it had one then when the car is warm and won't start try give this a good squeeze and tell us does it start soft and get hard, does it start hard and stay hard, does is start soft and stay soft
