    Default Car with spanner light :-(

    Hi , I'm hopping someone can help , I'm not mechanical minded at all so bare with me , I have a signum 2.2 design direct petrol , about once a week it breaks down :-( I get the car with the spanner and also the picture of the engine , It can take anything between 5 mins to an hour to get going again . It starts but as soon as you try to drive itcuts out and the spanner light is back , I have had it on 3 different diagnostics at a cost of about £100 so far , first time there was no code stored , next it was p1118 but the garage said he wasn't sure that was a legitimate code and said to take it to vauxhall ??? Lastly the garage were reluctant to tell me the code but said it had 2 , swirl pot and fuel pressure . He said it's more likely to be fuel pressure but it could be anything from the fuel pump to fuel rail or even a broken wire , it's a process of elimination . I can't afford to keep replacing parts that may be absolutely fine . Can anyone please give me some advice . The car drives perfect but it's so frustrating when the fault occurs . Thanks

    I had a recall from vauxhall for the handbrake but haven't heard from them regarding regulator , I'll ring them tomorrow .
    So you reckon just change the fuel pump ? I have found one from a breakers for £40 my concern is do they all break ? Oh there's only one fuel pump isn't there ? Underneath at back of car ?
    I'm just finding my way lol
