    Unhappy astra mk4 will not start

    my mk4 astra will not start , the engine turns over but thats all it does , i have since changed the coil pack to no avail there are no warning light coming on to indicate any fault . before this happened the car was revving high when stopped at lights etc and sometimes cut out but would always start again . the car is a 1.6 petrol with gas conversion on a v plate can any one help me out please

    could be the spark plugs are shot as they usually get replaced along with the coilpack

    failing that, a flat battery?

    has your alternator failed?

    best bet would either be talk to vauxhall, or the people who carried out your LPG conversion
