    Vehicle : Vectra C Facelift

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 1.9Cdti 150

    Year : 2007

    Default Starting on 3

    I have Sept 57 Veccy 1.9CDti would this have had the 3 injector plug change before delivery ??
    I do not remember the dealers telling me they had done the modification.
    Was this a recall item.
    As it is out of warranty what would Vx's position be on carry-out the upgrade???

    This only happens when it is very cold so could it be the glow plug rather than the Injector???

    If your injector plugs are all blue,it has the newer wiring already,i think it was only early cdti's that had yellow plugs.
    I had my glow plugs changed at the dealers along with the service when i first bought the car in october,because i plugged it in and it came back with a glow plug error code,and mine still started slightly lumpy from cold,when it was cold just before and over christmas.
    So i bought a can of wynns diesel clean up to try,and it seemed to work for a while,so i thought.
    But infact i think it's the voltage given to the common rail from the alternator,and if you rev the engine a little after a few seconds from the first start,it will run fine again,until you start from cold again and repeat the proces again.
