Not sure what sort of connections are on your fuel filter etc. Your problem sounds like you are drawing in air between the tank and filter effectivley running out of fuel.My last astra was very prone to drawing in air after a fuel filter change,if I didn't change the copper washers on the suction pipe.New zafira diesel has clip on type connectors,if yours are like this,one may not be quite on?Sorted out a diesel land -rover recently,same symptoms as yours,just needed new hose clip on the tank exit pipe.

its on the right hand side of the engine as you look at it. That is between the engine and the battery. It has one big hose and two others coming out of it. Be careful, Vectra diesel thermostat does not open quickly when the weather is cold, in hot weather the operating temperature is about 90.

How do you purge the diesel filter on your Peugeot 205 as it has water in it according to the warning light?

I had the same problem on a Peugeot 405 Turbo Diesel. The problem turned out to be the water-in-diesel sensor itself - so I have ignored it for the last 5 years! It is probably the water-in-diesel sensor which is at fault. I have had the same problem for over 5 years on a 405 turbo diesel - so I have ignored it.
