Welcome to Just Answer, Sorry to have kept you waiting,

This is a common fault on this engine, it is caused by air getting into the leak off system and this lets the diesel drain back from the fuel filter.

First you will need to get the leak off pipes and their "t" pieces replaced, these pipes perish and this is where the air gets into the system, Vauxhall have brought out a stronger beefed up pipe for this fault.

After this it should be OK after the initial start but if the problem persists the the transverse injector seals will be need replacing these also let Air in, this is a bigger job requiring partial removal of the camshaft as the injectors sit under the shaft.

I hope this helps, best regards, Vauxdoc
