Hi all
Hope I am doing this right. I just bought a Zafira Elegance 2.0dti. I bought it from a chap in Birmingham and it started and ran fine when I went to go and see it. It drove down fine and due to shopping around for insurance it stood outside my place for a week. When I finally decided to drive it it would not start. After much trying it eventually started and ran fine for the day. I then tried it two days later and the battery does its bit and something turns but there is nothing after that. To describe it in the only way I can the starting part is OK but the actual igniting part is not happening. I heard that Zafiras can give starting issues on a slope so tried it on level ground. I also replaced the fuel cap as I lost mine and heard this can also cause starting issues. I bought the car knowing that it has not been serviced for the last 20 000 miles but all seemed fine. To me it sounds as if no fuel is coming through but could possible also be an immobiliser problem. I have no clue what to do next - any ideas???

Probably that you've sorted it now but leak off pipes are your first part to change!! Bad design on the car and air enters the fuel line.
