    Hi Shylock,

    Welcome to the board! I bought a 2.0 DTI 16v last year and had a similar problem. Whenever I turned the key it would turn over but take ages to fire up!

    I took it to Vauxhall and they replaced the " leak back pipes " and it sorted the problem out, something to do with the starting/ignition. It was done under warranty so it didn't cost anything at the time.

    Hope it sheds a bit more light on what it might be?
