    Thumbs down Fixed it !!!

    The fault was with the fuel pump,nice mr breakdown came out and had a look and confirmed that it was most probably the fuel pump at fault.I took out the rear seat and removed the cover to gain access to the pump,it was a bit mucky in there so i brushed out the dirt and dust,i wiggled [technical term !] the electrical connector and the 2 fuel pipes and tapped on the breather pipe,i then tried the car and the flaming thing started !.So i removed the electrical connector to the pump and sprayed it with electrical cleaner and refitted it,tried the car and again it started and ran ok.Vauxhalls and electrics are not a very good combination .Anyway its running now so i will see what happens.
