    HELP vxr fuel problem

    WAS wondering if anyone could help

    I have an Astra Mk4 sri turbo but with a vxr engine

    the other day i was fixing a radiator hose and fixed it but while the car was ticking over it run out of petrol so i filled the tank back up but it wont start so thought it had sucked up crap so i changed the fuel filter removed and cleaned pump but there was no fuel going to the engine so i thought there might be an airlock so spent all day trying to suck and bleed petrol though the inlet pipe but i can only seem to get fuel to the filter underneath

    does anyone no what to do please help

    Press the valve on the fuel pressure regulator (Looks like a tyre valve)
