    Hi all, I’ve just had my starter motor replaced. I drove it home with no problems whatsoever and five minutes after arriving at home I have gone to start the engine again and it died completely. All the electrics are dead and everything! Surely this must just be the battery but very worried as...
  5. [Vectra C] [02-08] Starter motor 8v or 16v

    Cavalier, Calibra, Vectra, Signum, Sintra & Insign
    hi again, So I’ve found out that I need to replace my starter motor... now keep coming across motors which state they fit both 8v and 16v engines. Now is this correct? Could I possibly put a 16v starter motor on my 8v cdti? Would it possibly turn the car over better by putting a 16v starter...

    Hi, I recently replaced the camshaft inlet sensor with a cambiare one due to a huge lack of power and having the p0340 -04 code. Car now runs perfect with no glitches apart from starting issues, which is a bit weird Quite often when starting (but not all the time) it won't fire the first key...

    Turn over on my 2.0 2008 vivaro has been getting more and more sluggish in the cold weather, now it won't start or crank at all. I assumed the battery was on it's way out, but have replaced it and the new one's no different. On turning the ignition there's a click, but no crank. Or sometimes...
