    confused intro

    hi chaps, im robbo.
    just joined this site having bought a lovely vectra cdti at the weekend.
    however I'm having a spot of bother already!
    I collected it friday and filled it with diesel on saturday and only managed to get 100 yards from the pumps!
    all power seemed to disappear in 2nd as if I was trying to pull away in 4th and it started belching out white and black smoke.
    The fault light came on and off intermittently and the power returned for short periods.
    I managed to limp back to the forecourt from where it was purchased, only to be told after a diagnostic that the 'wheel speed sensor had gone' and that the engine couldnt work out what speed i was doing and reduces power to save fuel or somthing to that effect.
    could this be the egr?
    Hands up,I know very little about these things and would appreciate a little assurance if not education from you guys who do know
    does this sound feasable to anyone?
    the car is an 06 and has just had a full service and has done 60,000.
    would be grateful for any suggestions chaps.cheers.

    You have 3 months to take it back for any problems to be fixed FOC. What did they say? Try to wriggle out of it? :/
