    Default Meriva 1.7 CDTI help

    A woman at work who has a Meriva 1.7 CDTI and it running rough.

    The symtoms are: Sometimes struggles to start, when it does start there are no revs for up to 10 mins then on other occasions it will only last a few seconds if that.
    It can sometimes take 4/5 attempts to get it started but once the rev's have gone to normal everything is fine. These problems can happen whether the engine is hot or cold.

    Any help is appriecated, she has took to VX and some independant garages and no one can find anything wrong with it.

    Thanks

    My other car. 1972 1641cc slammed beetle. On the road finally!!

    Am I right in thinking that the SCV is the suction control valve? I assume you mean fuel pump

    A car or specific engine type if they keep getting the same fault over the uk in a short time. Vauxhall will look into it at Luton and send a rework out to every dealer so when a car comes in you can match the fault and it gives you a fix or common faults.
