    Default Engine starts then Dies

    Hi Folks,

    Lassy needs abit of help :

    My 2003 2.0 DTI vectra has being great but came to go out saturday and it started ran for 5 seconds then died, tried it again and the same thing happened - third try and as soon as i heard it start i pumped the throttle - this kept it going and it ran perfectly for the rest of the day even though i was start / stopping from shop to shop.

    Came to start it again this morning (Monday) and it struggled again and only started with the help of my boot on the gas pedal

    Im thinking - Fuel leak off pipe from what i've read on other topics but i have no idea where to find this here pipe or how to replace it, as i'd rather do it myself if poss

    Does anyone have a "how to"
    Or any other suggestions as to whats wrong as i can't put up with that all winter

    Many Thanks
    Lisa

    They sit on top of each injector. They just allow excess fuel back into the tank or something to that effect.
