    Why is that then? This section isnt for technical issues so why don't you also quote the OP as this post isnt related to the section is it.

    Yet more attempts to distract attention from the fact that the 2.8 frequently falls apart.

    Reader was : General Motors tech2win and a vxdiag vcx se multiplexer (full general motors licence)

    Sorry for the slow reply on this, I got it into a mates garage and after fuel filter change the in-tank pump was clunking and not priming, changed the pump and she's running away fine now. Since I got her back this morning the MIL has turned on but no limp mode, will get codes read again and see what's what.

    I posted in this forum by mistake, I cannot see how to delete my posts but I did make a post in the correct forum : https://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showt...t-not-starting

    Long story short, was in-tank fuel pump, combined with clogged fuel filter, changed both and she's running again. MIL is on but could just be having a wobbly, will get codes read again and see whats what, reader used : General Motors tech2win and a vxdiag vcx se multiplexer (full general motors licence)
