    It sounds like your EGR valve is blocked to me. I suggest you check out the EGR maintetnace threads as this will likely lead you to the solution and show you how to remove, clean and re-assemble the valve.

    there's a how 2 for cleaning the EGR, and you could type in EGR in the search button, there's plenty of threads regarding this problem.

    Hi mate try this link and dont forget the boost sencor too. HTH

    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=39441

    This tells you where to find it, do a searth for cleaning it properly which involves drilling a 3mm hole in the top to get the solinoid out.

    Hi,
    I had the same problem. I took it to a garage with diagnostic equipment. It was just a bit of split pipe, which he replaced in a minute and my cars been good as new ever since. Totally felt the different as soon as I pulled away. Sorry not sure which pipe though.
