    Default Need advice Please

    Hello All

    I just purchased a Vectra sri 2.2 direct (55 Plate) with a known problem. The spanner light was on (no eml light) and i had the car diagnosed saying a fault in the fuel system.

    So i replaced the fuel pressure regulator and that seems to of solved the problem ( Glad it was not the pump)

    Now i have the eml light on, Phoned vaux and they said to take it for a run and see if it clears. Could of been due to the fpr and may rectify itself.


    As a new owner to this car i have no idea how these car performs or what mpg i should be getting.

    Performance seems ok to me for a 2.2....little slow on the pick up but i think that may be normal for such a big car, however i only average 25 - 26 mpg (everywhere) short and long runs.

    I presume this is a little low and the fact i have the eml light....could it be something like the air flow sensor have not got a clue ???

    If it is something like that where is the best place to get one and how much would they cost.


    Many thanks

    The car/spanner light is the EML (engine management light). The pic of the engine block is the emmisions light.

    Instead of guessing, you need to have another diagnostic check performed to read out the fault code(s).

    Big dave sorry for the mix up...its the emmisions light that's now staying on, after replacing the regulator the spanner light stopped showing.


    What is the usual mpg for mixed driving on these 2.2's and is the comp acurate with the average mpg
