VAUXHALL ASTRA FUEL PUMP PROBLEM

2000 Vauxhall Astra

2000 Vauxhall Astra 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 107000 miles

My car starts fine but when a drive not very far and up a hill it looses power then cuts out it then struggles to start again. It only starts again when its on flat ground even though it has a full tank of petrol. What is causing this? It does'nt do this all the time just sometimes.

Start by replacing the fuel pump. It may be getting worn/weak
