    Had to make a couple of guesses about your vehicle - for a 1998 Vectra-B witha X20DTL engine found mention of a glow period control unit (looks like a relay) in what they call position 13 (a black one, second up on the right as you look at them) in the relay box "above the ABS control unit" near expansion tank. The name suggests that they control how long the glow plugs stay on...

    Sure hearing a lot of problems like this. If it runs for a few minutes then dies it may not be glow plug related. Maybe somebody else know more about it...
