    Default do i change inlet manifold or control valve or both

    ive got a 150 bhp auto vectra 55 plate and has been running great until last week i noticed loss of power then the car with spanner light came on the dashboard, i took it to drive vauxhall in leicester they diagnosed it gave me an estimate for 1144.40, looking at the estimate about £600 was labour and the rest parts, the two main parts was a control valve part number 55205127 costing £159 plus vat and the inlet manifold part number 55210201 costing £197 plus vat the rest of the parts being gaskets, new nuts, bolts etc my question is do vauxhall always change both parts or could it just be one of them that needs changing as im going to change the parts myself as i think i have the know how !! but dont want to buy both if not necessary.(is the control valve the egr valve or again is that another part ?) when changing the parts do i have to renew all gaskets? if so people say to use the fiat ones is this correct.

    also if driving with the windows down i can hear a hissing sound is this to do with this or could it be something else ????

    whilst on here i might aswel ask all my questions lol. i see a few people have said they hav done an airbox mod and 3rd injector mod what are these.

    last of all im only getting 27mpg is this due to the fault or are these auto vectras really this bad on fuel ?

    its supposedly best to change both while you at it, they quoted me 231.82 for the manifold but i brought it off ebay, from vauxhallpartswarehouse and the control motor is what operates swirl valve 3 on the manifold, it attaches via an arm and operateds all 4 valves when the bar is on properly

    166.60 manifold delivered
    95.00 delivered for motor
    off ebay
    i never purchased any bolts ect and the manifold came with a new gasket
    i did put fiat gaskets on the egr though, £7 quid roughly

    someone will point you in the direction of the how to info

    the hissing im not in the know to say

    airbox box mod involves opening the airbox and taking the half pipe inside of, just clips out, did this yesterday, uses all the airbox now
    done my 3rd injector as well, search the how to for how2 change the 3rd injector (wiring)
