happily, sounding much like they were saying :
First thing to check is that they've got the belt timing spot on - with a
diesel, the injection pump is often timed via the same belt (although I
think a '97 Xant might be an electronic pump, so that might not apply) as
well as the cam timing.
It depends what the problem really is. If it's just badly timed, then it's
simple. If one or more cylinders isn't firing because of a lack of
compression, then it's head off and replace valves - at the minimum. It may
be a replacement head. It may even be a replacement engine.
You'll be hard pressed to find any diesel that isn't.
