Welcome to the citroen c3 forum wimborne57

Can you give a bit more detail about the car.
Which fuel, year, and mileage.

Its its servicing up to date? Why did you need the AA, and how does the car drive now?

Hi wimborne57

Have a look to see the EGR valve is functioning correctly,

Which injector got checked? Did the right one get tested?

Check glow plugs are all working and being controlled correctly,

Ensure the injectors are correctly programmed into the ECU.
(sometimes the computer forgets the Injector memory location, so may give an injector fault, but if the injector tests ok, then look deeper).
