    fill the fuel filter housing with diesel and start the car, hold some revs on untill the fuel from the tank reaches the filter housing. have you identified the cause for the diesel draining back?

    I've used a improvised pump which sucks it up to the filter. I connected it to the filter outlet to the engine, turn on the pump when it splutters out its there.... Or you could fill the diesel filter full of diesel and start the engine and hopefully by the time it gets near the bottom of it it would have had time to suck the diesel up maybe?

    take top off fuel filter, fill with diesel, undo injector nuts at injectors, turn engine over til diesel spits out of pipes, tighten injector nuts and start engine

    or the way the manual says ... the 2.0 is self bleeding, Insert key in ignition, turn to position 2, return ot 0 and remove key, repeat twice, on third attempt start car, If car fails to start repeat sequence again.

    dti have no fuel pump in the tank whereas the cdti's do.. therefore the above statement would be false in this case

    Odd those were the instructions in my 2.0 dti astra G owners manual, maybe vauxhall got it wrong but it never failed me when i changed the fuel filters yearly over 100 000 miles.

    Im probably wrong but its shouldnt matter where the pump is if the system is sealed it will suck / pull the fuel untill it recieved fuel .. sucking / pulling the air out of the system ??

    The only way a dti can suck fuel up in constant cranking (pump located on the engine itself), whilst this is happening and the fuel is slowly being drawn up the diesel pump is running dry! a sure way to kill the pump if done too often. A cdti will prime the system by forcing diesel up to the filter housing and blowing the air back down to the tank
