    Default Help needed - V6 CDTi problem... Still

    Hi all,

    A while ago I put up a post about my facelift Vectra 3.0 V6 CDTi having a intermitant problem pulling when it hits about 2,000 rpm and is like a rocket after 3,500 rpm as normal.

    Well most of you guys came up with the suction control valve fault and very kindly gave me the job code aswell.

    I proceeded to my local stealer with code in hand to which their reply was "never heard of it"!

    So I explaind in lamens terms the problem, head mechanic came out, even he had never heard of a suction control valve! But would look in to it for me...... never to be heard of again!

    Anyway weeks have passed and I am now sat sweating my ass off in Afghanistan, the wife takes the car to the vauxhall garage to get it sorted for my return, 2 weeks have now passed, they had to download special software apparently, and played with the ECU

    Needless to say they have knackered it right up and wont even start now, they have quoted me £1700 for the ECU and wont pay a peny towards it, even though it was their fault.

    What can I do, does anybody have any advice or contacts?

    I really dont know what to do!

    Contact Vauxhall
    Ask for the area technician to attend your vehicle
    He should know about the blocked Suction Control Valves

    Field Remedy 1957
    It is on TIS

    I can try and get you the part number on Friday (it's on my service history)
    Take that to the parts department, then go to the service department

    edit :
    search "field remedy 1957", it's well documented here now

    If the car is under warranty the repair was approved by Sureguard (Retailer Warranties Limited)
    Contact them and advise them that the diagnosis from the dealership was incorrect and unnecessary

    Equally, if the ECU is replaced and the fault is still present simply go back to the garage, "What now?"

    The Field Remedy includes an update to the EMS
    I would suggest you make an appointment to discuss the matter with their Service Manager

    Were you given a receipt for the work, if so what exactly does it state?
    If the EMS was updated they pretty much wasted their time as it only works with the uprated SCVs
    The original SCV will return an unknown fault code, and I assume it is this they have diagnosed hence the update they performed
    However, with so many ECU around the car, would need know which one they played with
    There are three on the engine alone

    Hi,
    What were they trying to do? Was it something they had said they would be trying or something they did off of their own back?
    The reason i say this is if the dealer has said it could bork the ecu sir but at your request we will try but there are no guarantees's kind of thing then your case is a little less sure.
    However if they have borked the ecu without telling you they were going down that route of if there was a corruption of the calibration this is the dealers problem.
    working in a dealership you can imagine we see a fair share of issues that arent the fault of the tech or the car but sometimes just happen.This doesnt mean the the car can be given back to you in a worse state than when you gave it to them.
    If it is something they have cocked up or something that has gone wrong whilst in the dealers care it is their responsibility to sort it.

    By the way i would be very interested to know exactly what software they had to download!!!
