    Default starting problems

    hi all,

    i have a vectra 2002 dti, and have just had a full service last week ,and this week it has started playing up, it has always started first time every time and now it starts and runs for 2/3 seconds and then stops ,it does eventually start after five minutes of cranking over ,it does this if its hot or cold.i have rung the garage and they said to bring it in ,but i wondered if you guys had any ideas before i take it in ,because i will probably get a £500 bill for a bent pipe or a loose screw lol

    thanks

    Phil

    Sounds like air in the fuel system, who did full service ? Did they replace fuel filter ?
    They might of over tightened nut for fuel filter housing or they might not of replaced seal.

    Then again it could be air leaking back into system from leakoff pipes easy way to check this would be to park car facing downhill on a steep slope and leave it for a while then see if she starts 1st time if she does its leakoff pipes or maybe but very unlikely leaky injector seals
