    Vehicle : Vauxhall Vectra 1.9 CDTi 16v SRi Estate

    Trim : Sri

    Engine : 1.9

    Year : 2009

    Default Engine won’t start

    I wondered if anyone could help me with some advice.

    my husbands Vectra 1.9 CDTI estate 08, the engine cut out on the way home from work with engine light on, it just wouldn’t turn over, plenty of battery power and diesel etc.

    we had to get it recovered and took it to a garage we have used for years.

    Mechanic put it on the computer and it read crankshaft sensor fault, a new one was fitted but it still shows crankshaft sensor fault, he’s tried one of another working vectra the same model and still shows fault and won’t start.
    he has now cleared the faults and still the same

    he said if he sprays brake fluid through it, it starts and runs fine until he stops spraying it.

    can anyone point us in the right direction of what it may be

    If it's starting and running on easystart then it has to be a fuel issue. Surely a mechanic would suss that?
