    Default 2.0 DTi starting problems

    Morning all.
    I am having a few problems starting the car sometimes. This has only began in the last week or so. Sometimes it will start fine and others it will start then run rough for a few seconds then stall. Then I have to hold the key on for around 10 seconds to get it to start. If I stop and restart after this it is ok. From reading some of the other posts I think this might be the seals on the leak off pipes.
    Does anyone have a photo of the offending items and their locations?
    I would like to get this one fixed before it becomes a major problem.

    Regards

    Ian

    That's an Astra, but same engine. Red star marks the location of the pipe. Once you get the plastic cover off they're pretty obvious (your plastic cover will be different to mine as well).

    Thanks for the photo. I had a rough idea but its better getting some real directions before I go playing on my own.

    my wifes refused to start point blank when the leak offs went ! did'nt know that they can start to get worse before not working at all ? the reason hers was'nt starting was the cars ECU detects a pressure loss in the pipes and cuts the fuel off ! but hey you learn summat new everyday !!

    I think there are some little white T plastic adapters on the tubes that can suck air in? I had a problem with my 2.0Dti and I am sure that was the problem.
