Hi Again All,
Got my 1998 astra diesel a few weeks back, and had an almost immediate starter failure. Starter replaced with a second hand one but now intermittently when i turn it over to start it will turn a few times then click and stop. I leave it until the glow plugs light goes out and it usually kicks into life second time round. Any ideas please? Should i get another starter 'in stock' for back up? Also, Occasionally when i start it it might whirr over for a minute or so before it starts, but this only rarely happens. And finally I reckon i am doing about 90-95 miles to £15 of diesel(it's about £1.30 a litre here) does this sound right? Its fahooking miles better than my 1.8 4 pot E36 3 Series I had before, but when i get to the 70 mile ish area, the fuel light intermittently comes on and off, and the needle floats between empty and quarter of a tank? Any ideas again pleasE?
As always, many thanks in advance, for all its not very fast I LOVE my clean, warm and comfortable astra!
