    Default Vectra 2.2 DTI SRI Starting Problems

    Hi guys,

    This is my first post, but I have been lurking around for quite a while and found the forums very informative

    Anyway I seem to have a slight issue with my Vectra 2.2 DTI, a bit of a long story but here we go:

    A couple of months back the wife managed to top up a half full tank od diesel with £20 worth of petrol, not realising she then drove almost 200 miles home without noticing.

    The next day it took ages to get started so I decided to call out the AA. found the petrol and advised to have it drained.

    The next day I called my mechanic who advised to get the car going, burn off as much fuel as possible then brim it with Diesel and all should be ok.

    Luckily all seemed to be fine after, but lately I have had issues when the car is parked on an incline (facing uphill) it struggles to start.

    Could this be related to the petrol incident? or just coincidence? any ideas of what it could be?

    finally is there anything that should be replaced following the mix up.... fuel filters etc.?

    Cheers

    Alex

    leak off pipes sound about right or check the fuel filter housing for splits
    did you change the filter after the petrol incident if so did you changes the seals
