I have Starting Problems with my Zafira 2.0 Diesel
In the Morning if its Very Cold its a Real Bugger, If I heat it up a few times then Turn it Over it seems as its going to Start but then Cuts out as soon as it starts? Then it takes Ages turning it Over before it starts and a Big Load of Smoke. And if I go somewhere and leave it stand for a few Hours then it Plays up starting again Especially if Very Cold or FRONT OF THE CAR FACEING UPHILL!
I do think its alittle better if more Diesel in the Tank? As if its less than 1/4 of a tank and on a UPHILL - Its a Bugger?
I personally thought it must be a Air Leak/Air back to the Tank problem?
The 1st Thing I did was change the Leak Off Pipes as Normal Thing on Vauxhall Diesels - But still Playing Up after I changed them. Then I changed Diesel Fuel Filter - Still Playing Up.
I have been to 2 Vauxhall Main Dealers with the 1st Vauxhall Garage saying Heater Plugs? Which I changed and was still the same afterwards!!
Then I took it to the 2nd Vauxhall Garage and they said they couldn't find a problem on Tech 2 Machine!.....No Bad Codes/Faults Showing Up etc!
I told them I Changed Leak Off Pipes and Heater Plugs and could they keep my vehicle there till the next morning and see if it played up Starting then to Put it on Tech 2 to See if Any Faults Came Up? And to do a Vacuum Test Overnight on it?
When I went to the garage next day they said they couldn't see anything leaking as it was about the same as night before on Vacum Gauge And they said the Car didn't Play up that Morning - Maybe as it was quite warm and also had over 1/2 tank of diesel and the Car was Faceing Down Hill?
So I said to them to change Leak Off Pipes AGAIN! And Fit a New Diesel Fuel Filter which they did, They told me to take it away and see how I get on? I also told them I noticed one of them White Rings which go into DIESEL FUEL FILTER HOUSING IS LOOSE ON PIPE? They told me that wouldn't Cause this Problem.....As nearly everytime you undo those Pipes from Fuel Filter Housing they break he Said?
Well I tried the Car Out for a few Days and it was exactly the same and I phoned them back and now there saying it could be the Injector Seals - Which the Top Mechanic said he can change them without taking Cam right out just lifts it alittle with Tool but will still cost around £165-£200??
I do not want to keep spending Money on this Problem and Still not Fix it! Can anybody help me with this problem??
I would like to Know If those Rings are On the Pipes that go into the Diesel Fuel Filter Housing Or if they Are in the Top of the Diesel Fuel Housing Cap itself? As if they are in the Cap itself I will Change the Diesel Fuel Filter Housing Cap and see how I get on.
