    Astra 2.0 DTi Issues - any help appreciated

    Hi all, I'm hoping someone can help me with a few issues I've been having.

    I have 2002 2.0 Astra DTi with 100,000 on the clock. Its never put a foot wrong in the 3 years and 35,000 miles I've put on her. Anyway, a few weeks ago I the turbo just stopped working, and has been intermittant since. Then a few nights ago the car just would not start, it was turning over (I'm sure battery is fine) but just wouldn't fire.

    It does fire eventually (After about a good twenty seconds) and works Ok and will start normally for the rest of the day, but come the next morning for a cold start I have to turn it over again for ages.

    The only slight problem with the car I'm aware of in that the exhaust back-box is on its way out - the outer skin has rusted away, but I don't think its blowing yet.

    Thanks for reading.

    If it has not had a recent service then this should be your first step. If symptoms still persist get a fault code reader on it as this may narrow the search down.
