    had same problem which was the leak off pipes had an air leak causing diesel to seep away from injectors and thus poor start.

    if you take off cover and listen to injector i could hear air seeping when engine turned off

    i changed whole rack set inc clips (£35 +vat part no 9316078 (guy at parts had trouble identifying it as pictue on vauxhall parts looks slightly diff to real one and clips changed to metal) as plastic and snap when you go to do and was the plastic parts that had snapped and will prob snap when you pull them out.

    hope it helps
    had thought was egr or the starter but all solved by this and much smoother running after few starts and miles. (someone has already done a thread on this already for how to and took 20mins inc dropping a pin clip down engine.

    I thought it was the plugs cos once its started and heated up its fine starts first turn every time but left over night its struggles... even if i start it in the morning drive for say 5 mines park it up leave all day and start it it fires up right away.

    Hi al again still getting this problem ive checked the injectors they seem fine checked the battery thats fine now its the glow plugs got them so going to do them tonight but what ive just spotted today is the light on the dosh was going out within seconds on the first start but now every time i start it the light doesn't come on at all so is that the plugs or the glow plug relay is there anyway of checking this before i change the plugs. ??

    Well its not the glow plugs the light goes out within 1 second as if there not heating up fast enough to get it going would that be the relay?
