my combo 1.7 di ran out of fuel, now after filling it up with fuel, it won't start it turns over but won't fire not even with a tow, is it a problem with fuel pump or ecu. i filled fuel pump up with diesel and tried to tun it but nothing . is this likely to be an easy fix or will it make more financial sense to scrap it as it isnt worth a great deal now

Where is the charge relay located for this vehicle ? (Isuzu engine) it's not behind either left or right foot wells , behind the glove box or behind the dash! It's driving me mad, Charge light intermittent, battery charging now and then, wire run from alternator directly to battery, this proved alternator was charging, now it shows it's not. Revs sit at 1k now and then too.

Answers

The relays are behind the drivers right footwell kick panel. Be careful taking it off as you may end up breaking the bonnet release handle. There are two relays there one for time and the other for amount of charge in volts. hope this helps. Dave from Lancashire

Vauxhall Combo

Hi, I am enthusiastic owner of the old style combo Vans. The engine in the model up to 2001 is the 1.7 Circle L naturally aspirated indirect non turbo diesel. I have owned several since 1999 and now have a full spares shelf of all the usual parts apart from the chassis. There may be a point when it will not be economical to keep patching up these vans and the new shaped van will then have to grace my parking spot. What I would like to know is will the old style engine fit into the engine bay of the newer shape and what mods would be required to do this? Thanks in advance Mark

Can anyone tell me if my factory fitted lpg/petrol Vauxhall Combo 2002 van has a spare wheel and if so how do i get to it. There is a large black plastic doughnut shape under the van at the rear. It looks like it should house a spare wheel but i cant find anywhere that would unlock this. There is one bolt inside the van next to the doors, but this has no effect on the housing underneath. The van is also plylined so it is difficult to tell if there are any other fixing bolts for this. Is this the lpg tank or spare wheel? Having looked underneath i cannot see any fuel pipes going to the area. Thanks in advance

David J, England

Vauxhall Combo 2005

Hello everybody, I have a Vauxhall Combo van 2005 model and have had the fuel pump changed recently due to stalling when cold. At the moment the van seems to be working fairly well, although I have 2 questions about this. Firstly, even though the pump seems to be okay now, when the van hasn’t been running since the day before and the engine is cold I sometimes have to sit in the van and slightly press the accelerator to bring the revs, just for about a minute then the engine stays on okay after that. This is a lot better than it was before I had the pump changed so I can cope with this, it’s okay for the rest of the day then. The second question refers to a fault I had before I had the fuel pump changed and is still the same after the new pump was fitted. If the van hasn’t been used for a day or two and I start the engine it will start okay and run for about 15 seconds and then stall. I then have to sit there with the accelerator pressed for a minute before it will start again, after that it’s okay for the rest of the day. It seems as though being stationary for a couple of days makes a fuel line or something dry up, is this a common fault? I haven’t heard of other cars or vans doing this? Thanks.

I have just purchased a Vauxhall Combo 1700 cdti which drives well but stalls when cold, it also has intermittent revving. Any ideas please?

Answers

I had this problem and in my case it was the fuel pump, been in the garage twice for this, and i think its quite an involved job and a bit expensive to do as well, i had to take mine to a diesel specialist to work out the problem. I was told it was the fuel pump that's not keeping up the pressure so the revving keeps going up and down so to speak, it sounds like its going to stall when your foot is not on the accelerator etc. Hope you get the problem sorted out, although remember in your case it might be a different fault.
