Hi everyone, this is my first thread as I'm new to the web site.
I have a problem with a 1.7 cdti on a 53 plate that won’t start MOST of the time hot or cold; it turns over ok and needs a shot of WD40 down the air intake to get it to go. The air and fuel filters have been changed and injector cleaner been run through it, I don't get any engine management warnings when the cars running.
I’ve been told it’s the Mass Flow Meter/ air meter, but wouldn’t that also cause it to run very erratic?
I'm new to Astra's and modern diesel engine the only experience of air meter problems I have encountered have been on an old Vectra type B petrol and this didn't stop it from starting, I could do with help here.
Does anyone have any advice I would greatly appreciate it thanks
