Your coolant system aint heating up like it should. Its your thermostat. You need to change it. its broke. There are four parts to your thermostat. You need to make sure that you get all four parts out. A thermostat costs about five bucks. Its an engine temp. regulator. If its broke your engine wont warm up at all. If it seizes shut, your engine will overheat. Your thermostat is broke. I Have the exact same car that I have been repairing for the last three months.

There is probably a strainer type filter in tank, like every other unit I've seen, but I can't believe you don't have one between tank & engine. Take a look along the frame rails under the truck. If you follow the path of the fuel lines from the tank, my guess is you'll find one attached to frame. Most of the cars I've worked on lately are usually just ahead of the passenger side rear wheel, bolted to frame.

My vauxhall zafira takes ages to start in morning but once started, starts first time all day till next morning same again


when this happens check to see if you have spark if so this may be a fuel pump problem, check fuel pressure and volume. what happens is if the brushes in the pump are worn and the car sits long enough the brushes will stick causing a higher resistance not allowing the pump to run.
