Hi there, I'm new to this site, I came across it whilst trying
To find a solution to my problem. I hope you will be able to give me some advice.
I drive a 03 plate Vectra, 2.0 dti, and in the past couple weeks I have had problems with her starting of a morning. It takes ages to start first thing which has gradually got worse by the day. Once started she runs like a dream, and starts straight away throughout the day.
First thought was glow plugs so we had them changed by a friend, however he did some kind of test on the "circuit!?" And got no reading, which he said wasn't good.
Now he is no mechanic, and I'm certainly not, but I'm now at a loss as to what or if anything I can do myself (I say myself, I mean a friend or my dad) as I'm a typical woman and my knowledge goes no further than it runs on diesel.
I have also have a light come on twice briefly which is a car with a big spanner in front of it which went out within 10 seconds of starting?
Also my glow plug light only comes on some mornings, even when cold and never throughout the day.
I hope what I've wrote makes sense, as I am a self confessed numpty when it comes to motors.
Thank you for any help
