    Default sluggish 1.9 cdt

    Hi I am a new member and just did 300 miles rather slowly in my 95.000 mile vectra diesel. I am new to diesels but was expecting the run to clear out the soot and get it going again but it didnt. Is it worth cleaning out the EGR on spec as that sounds within my abilities? The engine shows the spanner and runs out of power suddenly at 3500 revs which I guess is the engine management system.
    I like the smooth quiet ride at motorway speeds and being able to hear CDs properly, but want the power back!

    It won't hurt to clean the egr, but if i were you i would get it plugged into a code reader asap & see what's causing the problem

    might be the egr could do with a clean (code reader). motorways don't clean through modern diesels any more they need to get reved though a couple of gears

    I got a code reader for 39 pounds from talktomycar and it found no fault codes. But the good news was that after clearing the codes and driving a bit the spanner light went out and its revving freely again. So I do not know what it was.Code readers arent supposed to cure faults are they?
