    Default poor starting when warm

    I have owned this vectra from new ( 1.9 diesel 120bhp ) it is now 4 years old with 39000 miles on the clock. The car has always run perfect. It recently had its 4 year service and they changed the fuel filter. Since getting the car back, it is poor on starting when the car has been used, but this never happens first thing in the morning.
    The garage has said its nothing they have done and cannot find anything wrong, but today the car took 8 times to start it, but it runs perfect once started
    Can anyone please help?

    Im thinking air lock in the fuel pressure side of things, maybe air lock in between the fuel filter and the injection rail

    If it's just since you got it back, I'd be back to the dealer demanding they sort it. They've obviously knocked something. Air lock in fuel system sounds unlikely as it would normally clear once started and not return.

    Maybe leave the car with them a few hours so they can replicate the problem?

    Check connection to coolant temp sensor and EGR

    Are you sure the large sealing 'o' ring is properly seated in the filter housing and the screw top is tight, and the two fuel pipes are sealing correctly. Sounds like air being drawn back into the system when the engine is switched off.
