    Vectra gsi 2.6
    Hey there vectra sport and its members . My name is David , have been going thru these forums for years but this is my first time writing up . So anyway I sold my vectra gsi 2.6 in petrol blue only to get in the post a few days later a letter saying the car was impounded . Had just posted the log book off the day before , was told there was nothing I could do to get it back (worth a try) since then I been trying to get another .
    Now there my VS cherry is popped lol
    Wish everyone a good day
    David .

    Just like to add i still drive a vectra diesel but we don't need to talk about that dirty thing

    I have recently become the owner of a vectra c 2.0 dti and now it won't start I have had it to the garage where I was told I need a new fuel pump at a cost of £1500 which isn't an option my mate had it plugged in to a reader the only code was P0500 can any body help I apologise for posting it here but can't find how to post in the vectra c chat
    Thanks for any help I'm not the most mechanically minded lol and I appreciate any help that is offered thanks in advance

    Welcome martyn. Code p0500 is pointing towards vehicle speed sensor. As the car isnt moving hence its not picking up a signal. For the non start issue check any fuel pipes in the engine bay for any leaks mainly the fuel return pipe if it has a small crack it can cause air to be drawn in and stop fuel being pulled through also check round the fuel filter aswell for leaks. Also if its the same setup as the b model you should be able to access the fuel pump via under the back seats just lift it forward and the top of it should be there. Have a mate turn the ignition on and listen for it priming. Maybe one of the resident c owners can clarify this. Hope this helps you bud.

    2.6 gsi (restoring)
    I don't know if I can class myself as a newb, I've been around since 2007 but had a while away, 5 years with a vec C (loved it) now got an F30 BMW (disappointed) and I gave up biking so picked up a Vec GSI to do up. Sadly it wasn't as advertised so I've had my issues with it, but still pottering away
