I have a vaxhaul corsa C 1.3 diesel. I have a problem

Customer Question

Hello, I have a vaxhaul corsa C 1.3 diesel. I have a problem with starting whilst cold. I've plugged into the vehicle with two different diagnostic machines. And neither bring up a fault code atall. The fuel pump primes from what I can hear however appart from that I'm confused due to the lack of information from my diagnostic machine. If someone could be of some assistance to lead me in the right direction, I'd be very appreciative. Thank you, Tom
