SOURCE: vauxhall vivaro wont start cold

Sounds like a faulty cold start assistor. On top of the engine you will find an aluminium housing with four things that look like glow plugs screwed into it. These 'glow plugs' are only available complete with the housing fron Vauxhall. Approx £70 +
Airbag light is probably a fault with the seatbelt pretensioner.
Check the wiring under the seats for damage or perhaps the plugs have pulled apart.

This is your check engine light, signaling and warning you to check your engine.It could be anything ranging from a loose gas cap to a multiple cylinder misfire to an evaporative emission concern.Your best sure bet will be to have it scanned by a shop or invest in a scanner yourself and investigate the code yourself.Hope I could help..

Vauxhall vivaro no1 piston position


If question is how to tell when no. 1 piston is a TDC, remove spark plug (unless diesel) and insert plastic straw as you turn engine over by wrench. You should be able to tell when piston reaches top and starts back down. Other method is to remove cam covers and find when intake is closing and exhaust is not yet opening.

Vauxhall vectra 2006 cam sensor


I have had this before it is best to change the cam and crank sensors as a pair. as a week sensor will affect the other sensor.and give a false code. as these work together. it is best to change both at the same time. i changed the crank on mine after the cam and it sorted it out. crank sensor is located near to the thermostat and under the exhaust manifold. make sure you tuck the wire away from the exhaust manifold . other end of the wire is fitted to the under neath of the injector cover and is cliped in place very easy to replace

The alternator last bolt doesn't come out you have to rotate alternator then pull it off , the bolt you can't pull fully out is just in a log not a hole. On the alternator it's like a hole but part cut away if you get my meaning
