    Question Vectra C 2.0 Dti Starting Problem.

    I have a starting problem with my vectra c 2003 2.0dti. It will start when facing downhill everytime but won't start sometimes when facing uphill. It has only just started doing this. I took it to the garage and they checked all the fuel pipes for leaks and replaced one piece of pipe. I took it home and left it overnight facing uphill and it started fine the next day. But then left it another 6 hours and it started then stalled immediately and wouldn't start again. I rolled it down to the flat left it an hour and after turning over the engine for 20 seconds it started.

    From what I read people say change the leak off pipes but vauxhall want £24 for the pipe and £15 for connectors is this worth doing? . Also my garage said try changing the fuel cap as it may not be sealing, could this be the cause?

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    nothing to do with the fuel cap , will either be leak off pipes ( yes they are a bit pricey ) or the injector seals .
    change the leak off pipe & see what happens , if no joy then its injector seals .

    buy a 1.5mt lenght of spill pipe hose from your local motorist shop and cut them to fit,don't forget to fit a new piece to the fuel pump ( I know it's fiddley )hose is about £5 to £6.
