    Vehicle : vectra-c

    Trim : sri

    Engine : cdti

    Year : 2004

    Mileage : 98,000

    Default

    Theres no hand priming pump apparently so its either turn the key on & off to pump derv through if it has this system, but i seem to remember people saying its better to fill the filter housing back up with diesel then start with foot down & keep trying this till it starts.

    Ignition on-off-on a few times should help a bit. Mine was a pig to start too.
