van wont start by key

Asked by Feb 28, 2010 at 08:18 AM about the 2003 Opel Vivaro

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

my  van wont start by the key alone, i have had to squirt a tiny bit of easy start in the air duct for it to fire, i have spent alot of money getting the injectors and fuel system checked and fixed but the problem still persists, however when it poured down the other day, after a short journey, i jumped in and it fired up as if nothing were wrong and kept starting after every stop after that, i then left it for a couple of hours and tried again and it wouldnt start, i used the easy start again and then blasted it through a big puddle and hey presto it was starting as if it were fixed, has any1 got ant idea where i should start my next investigations?
