    Default Vectra is sick WHITE SMoke

    I was going to local rally in the vectra at the week end and i slowed down coming to a roundabout but when i gave her the boot it let this loud noice out of it and lost all power i looked in my rear view mirror and the road was covered in white smoke! I was thinking it mite be the turbo but what was the bang noise! I turned the car off tryed to start it again and an awful rattle sound came from under the bonnet! Not good! I got it remapped 2weeks ago i was thinking would this have anything to do with it either?

    Have you checked your boost pipes, they sometimes blow off if not tight enough, they may cause the white/grey smoke and strange noise ???

    My money is the seals have gone on the turbo (cooling ones). I would say you need a new turbo and maybe a few pipes

    Agreed there. Happened on my old MG ZT - cost a bomb to repair.
