    Hi To you all,

    I am new to this forum, i have got a vectra sri 2.2 dti 2003.
    Its been a great car for years but lately had afew problems.
    i.e front/rear springs snapped at bottom where it sits.
    Tension rollers worn (auxilery belt ) causing rattle noise.
    Solenoid valves ( lack of power )
    The prob ive got now is another rattle / whining noise think its the gearbox, car only done 72000 miles .
    Can hear noise more at low speed .
    Has anyone had this prob with their car ,
    Any help would be much appreciated

    Cheers Tomo

    Welcome mate, you'd be best fitting a full set of aftermarket springs as they will just keep breaking, (common fault)

    It's the damper on the tensioner that seizes causing the belt to chirp but if its definatly a rattle get the timing chain checked

    As for the lack of power, clean the EGR valve and boost senor

    Your gearbox noise is more likely to be a knackered wheel bearing

    Hi John
    Thanks for reply ,I should have made it clear that ive had springs,tension roller and valve fitted.
    can the egr valve be cleaned on a 2.2 dti ? i was told the not as different to the 1.9 dti valves.
    Ive had wheel bearing checked and all ok.

    CHEERS TOMO

    Sorry mate, didn't realise you'd had the stuff done.

    How was the wheel bearing checked as they can whine but not have any play in them. Worth swapping tyres front to back to see if that makes a difference.

    The egr is pretty easy to clean on the dti. In fact if you look in the how2 section you'll find a how 2 for it
