    rolleyes 2.2 DTI starting trouble

    I've had my Vectra 2.2 DTI for about a year now and everything has been fine, except that I've noticed that when I park facing uphill (even on a slight gradient), the car wont start. It keeps turning over and on the last occasion it tried to fire but wouldn't (as though there was no fuel). This now leaves me with a couple of questions:-

    1. Has the fuel run to the tank via gravity?

    2. Is my fuel pump on it way out, as it wont pump fuel up hill?

    3. Should there be something like a non-return valve fitted?

    Any help on this would be appreciated

    I had the injector seals replaced twice on my 2004 2.2DTi under warranty due to problems with not starting. (on level ground).

    Sorry to hijack, but the same thing has just happened to our car. It's in with Vauxhall at the minute and they are suggesting either the pump or seals. Is this a fault on Vauxhall's part? ie. can I suggest they pay for any repairs?
    Mine's a 53 2.2 dTI.
