    Default Morning all....

    Morning Vectra lovers.

    I am new to the forum and though I would say hello.

    I'm just about to take the plunge on an 08 CDTI 150, silver with anthrecite wheels, not sure about those, but it's like new and drives great.

    Is there anything I need to check, look for on my last nosey round the car? I've heard horror stories of EGR (?) and Swirl Flaps... should I be worried? Any advice greatly appreciated.

    I look forward to chatting with you all further.

    TC

    Not much should go wrong on an 08 reg veccy but, if something does, post it up on here and someone will help.

    Have a read of the how2's. I read them and now do a bit of maintenance cleaning of the throttle body, EGR valve and boost pressure sensor.

    Welcome ! Dont be worried about the problems you mentioned. Forums are a place people come for help so you will only ever hear the horror stories. Lets not forget how many 1.9 150's are out there not having problems !

    It would be worth checking the swirl bar though, for peace of mind. Do this by popping off the engine cover (no tools) and inspect the bar in the centre of the engine. It will be linking all four swirl pots/valves. Make sure it is tightly intact. Hope this helps.
