    You looking at another one mate?

    If its a 150, then the usual suspect's:
    • DMF;
    • Swirls';
    • Manifold;
    • EGR;
    • 3rd Injector;
    • Proper servicing..............!

    Take it for a good spin, see how it feel's.
    If that was me (unless the car was a TOTAL giveaway £££) i'd check service history and try to phone around the dealer's who have serviced it and check what they have done to it. If SH not available, check number plates and see where it states and at the very least call them

    Other than that its a total gamble. The only thing you will really be able know of 100% is the 3rd injector as the connector clip will be blue and the other's yellow.

    Very good thinking mate. Its always a gamble, you may get a lemon , you may get a peach. Ask the guy for the service garage details and ring them? If he is genuine he'll tell you!

    Vehicle : Vectra SRi

    Trim : XP1

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 66000

    Default

    The updated manifold is physically different (and has different part numbers) so you can tell. DMF is easy to listen for, clutch operation should indicate if its been recently changed. 3rd injector and EGR are easy fixes so don't worry about those.
