    Default Does this sound like a faulty Boost Solenoid?

    This happens now and then, once or twice a month.
    Started the car up at work, pulling out of the car park at low revs it had no boost. Pulled up in traffic after a mile or two i quickly turned engine off and on, boost came back and travelled home without any more problems.

    Also, i sat with the ignition on (engine off) yesterday looking through Op-com. After 20-30 mins i decided to remove the boost solenoid to give it the once over. It was hot, almost too hot to handle. It had been around 4 hours since the car had been used and it had been parked in the shade. Would it normally get hot with just the ignition on?

    Vectra 1.9CDTI 150 by the way.
