My Zafira 2.0 dti Sri starts when it wants. I can go out and start it. Drive it for days sometimes and when I stop and come to start it again it is as though diesel is not getting through. It seems to me like something electrical is just not telling it to fire as if I go back to it after a couple hours it starts. Not all the time mind sometimes it takes a few days before it decides to go again but it only lasts so long. I had it hooked up to jumpers and turned it over time and time again and nothing. I left it and the day after went to it and it fired up immediately. Any ideas plz. Like I say it does seem to be electrical

Hi I have a 2011 Vauxhall Zafira. The gear box has been replaced in the last 3 weeks but I still find a whirling noise especially in 3rd and 4th gear. What could it be? The garage man says it is coming from the air conditioning pump and is normal, but im not convinced, as the noises are not present in any other gear. Can anyone help??

Dominique, Leicestershire

Hi I recently had my whole exhaust replaced and since then it has produced a pale white smoke, the engine light then came on. Took it back to the garage and they did some computer tests and they said all ok, re-set the light. Since then it hasn't come back on but the smoke has almost gone and there is some water coming out now and a smell, it smells almost like over worked brakes that have seized and something that's burnt. Can anyone advise as to what the problem may be. Thanks

I have a boot socket accessory wires hidden behind the right panel but no socket present. I also have a hole for a socket behind the centre console but on inspection of the inside behind the hole there are no socket accessory wires there to connect to. How much would it cost to get a mechanic to rig up a spur off the rear socket and feed it through to the centre console so I can have two working accessory sockets. Thanks

My heating is only blowing out on 4, we have changed the resistor pack and fuses, worked for a short while on 3 but not the force I think it shoud be, more like what it should be on 1 or 2. Also I`m sure the heating is only blowing outwards not towards the windscreen nor feet, I can feel a slight blow for the windscreen on 4 but it`s not a full force like it is in my face! Any advice muchly appreciated :-)

I have been told I have an oil leak in my car after service yesterday and was told it may need to have the gearbox removed to get at some part at the back of the engine to rectify. I placed cardboard under the car overnight but no evidence on there. My question is what is the problem here and if no evidence of an oil leak is it all gone and what would happen then?
