Customer Question

I have 08 1.7 diesel Astra. It cut out whilst parked about a month ago. Tgrn would not start. Turned the engine over but would not start up. Tried again after about 25 min n it started. Ran ok for a couple of weeks then wouldn't start after being parked for 10 min. Again left for 15-20 min started ok. Ran for another couple of week no proplems. It cut out last week whilst driving n again same thing would not start for 15-20 min. It did the same thing tonight! Could this be somethin simple I can check before I take into a garage?
