Now i know this is a vectra forum, but my mates got a astra sri with the 1.9cdti 150 engine in it. Couple of days ago it lost coolant which turned out to be the waterpump which i replaced for him. Car drove and ran well for about 100 odd miles, then the alternator belt give up and snapped.
Had the car towed home with lights on for about 40 miles or so then parked outside the house.
Fitted a new belt and idler pulley and tried to start it, but it wouldnt go. Tried a different battery and on a bump and jump, but it just wont start. It cranked over but sounded asif it's out of fuel, but got half a tank in it.
Today i go back and try to start it, but all i get is just clicking from the starter with the ignition lights going on and off whilst trying to start it.
So one day it sounds asif it's out of derv, then the next it sounds asif the starters knackerd.
Abit lost to why it wont start from a alternator belt giving up?
Any ideas chaps?
