    Default Start Up Like A Bag Of Spanners

    Very strange what happened today...

    Went out to start the car so me and the other half could go out and upon startup the engine was missing and very lumpy..

    Opening the gates and the smell from the exhaust,cat or lambda very strong seconds after starting,

    Car drives ok to a point but feels lurchy on the throttle...in the dealers last week for a knocking noise and mentioned the lurching and said they did an update

    Also could be unrelated but getting a drowning/humming noise from the belt area or so it sounds like that area on tick over when warm

    Cars a 58 plate 1.8 vvt vectra...getting doubts now about coming from ford to vauxhall,

    20,000 on here now and problems starting to appear so it seems.

    Anyway anybody had anything like the above they can comment on.

    cheers all.

    Hows the oil level, the VVT used oil pressure to work so low oil level on the VVT can have big affects.

    Oil level needs to be checked on a warm engine, so 5-10 mins after to turn off. Bottom and top of dipstick markings is about 1L of oil. I'd check it before to turn it over again and if its below half put half a litre in, then run warm and do it again.
