    Default My first Vectra C Diesel ....

    Aloha ... Right I have a little issue with my vectra .....

    Its a new shape ( 02 ) diesel and I have the following problems with it .....

    The engine management light comes on after 3000 revs and or over 75mph ... ONTOP of that there's ton's of black smoke coming out from the exhaust as-well .... but not when you drive it sensibly .. Also it struggles to get some speed on hills .... Anyone had any of these problems before?

    Cheers

    02 So it will be a DTi 1st thoughts were EGR but it might be boost related eg:check pipes to turbo for splits or holes
    failing that get codes read far simpler to diag when we have a code HTH

    It has 160,000 miles and its chain driven .. I check the oil everyday and its all sweet ... No recent work been carried lately but I did consider taking it into vauxhall for a check up but then after asking them it looked like more of arse raping ... I think the turbo pipe is metal ? the 1 that goes straight through the engine to the turbo unless I got the wrong pipe in mind?

    Ok have found the problem .. I think .. The plastic pipe leading from what I think is the air intake has a big fat rip underneath .. Now that leads to the turbo .. Could that be the reason why its chucking out so much fumes over 50mph and engine management light coming on .. please help !!!!

    Best way to find out is to repair it

    But yes, that won't help at all!
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    No thats the one. They are not cheap!

    Duck tape? as a temp repair maybe but it will only go again later.
