    Talking Back with Vauxhall.

    I got my 1st Vauxhall way back in the late 60's-early 70's. It was a 1600cc FB Victor with floor change gears (like stirring a bucket of thin wallpaper paste).
    Since then I've had numerous Viva's, HBs & HCs, Astra's and best of all, a 1900cc rwd Cavalier.
    My current car is a 2003 Signum Elite 2.2 D that I've had for 3 and a bit years. It's a brilliant car, reasonably quick, roomy with all the kit on it, and when you drop the back seats it's like having a van at your disposal, I've had 8x4 sheets of plasterboard in there. I'm having a bit of trouble with it at the moment though. The engine sometimes won't tick over and it keeps coughing and spluttering, even when pulling hard on the Mway. The next day it's OK again, and drives like a new car. The problem feels like fuel starvation so I strongly suspect a fuel tank venting problem. This would explain why it's OK the next day, it's got all night for air to get into the tank.
    Does anybody know the routing of the fuel tank breather tube? Any help would be much appreciated.
