    Starter motor ok but car won's start???!

    Problem with my sis's Astra G 1.6 16v SXI, has some problems couple of months ago which turned out to be a knackered coil but now the car won't start....turn the key and it starts to turn over but as soon as you stop turning over the engine dies......any ideas guys???
    Planning to get it into garage this morning as it stands but worried there will be a big bill (as there usually is)
    Cheers

    is there petrol getting to the fuel rail?, coil pack, spark plugs, all connections etc
    The coupe...ITS ALIVE & back from the dead....again!
