    Default 2.2dti misfire

    anyone had a misfire with the dti engine?

    noticed for first five mins when started from cold i'm getting a slight misfire when idling. goes away once heated up.

    Don't think it will be glow plugs as it hasn't been cold enough to fire them up

    thanks

    Air in the pipes? When were the leak off pipes done and did you fit a new rubber seal when you changed the diesel filter?

    Question for John - I've heard about the leak-off pipes before but dont know what they are and where they are. are they something that should be replaced/cleaned often?

    I had the same problem on my last opel omega dti when the pipes to the inlet manifoild was broken. Check pipes. Another ting, I am not shure, but doesnt the glow plug start when its warm outside when ignition turns on, but lamp inside dont come on because its glowing so fast? Anyone?

    I'm getting sort of a miss when I rev the engine up to 1700rpm...what could that be? Starts fine and runs OK though. Powers is there when I need it and it doesn't smoke.

    Innes - see this thread http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=59573

    Oddly I changed mine last weekend after putting it off for a year!! I can't leave it parked uphill over night or it won't start. Also recently the first start of the day or left outside work for 8 hours it has to turn over a good few seconds then splutters into life. After changing these pipes, made no difference to starting. Yet to test the uphill over night issue but too scared to lol.

    Was actually a real easy job, only thing I found was to gain room remove the EGR (so time it with cleaning that) to get to the lower (pump) pipe, and remove the elbow above that where the boost sensor lives (and clean that out too). Remember as a MUST to use washing up liquid to lube up the t-pieces etc so the pipes go back on. I badly bent the first t-piece cos I tried pushing it on dry, so need to go back and by one more and change.

    The pipes I took off have a date stamp of Feb '02!! My new ones purchased last year say Mar 09 Give it a go!

    The cause for poor starting when parked facing uphill is the injector seals. My mate had problems with his Vec DTI for 4 years and when they finally replaced the injector seals the problems went away.

    You are correct, they always come on, just not so hot in the summer. Glowplugs wouldn't cause a misfire under idle as they are only used to start the car

    I had the injector seals replaced when I got it for this issue, only 24k ago and it's always been a problem. I found parking downhill cured it...
