    Default Hello Everyone

    And Hi to you all, I've just joined and would like to ask if I should look out for any problems with my Veccy 3.0 CDTI

    yes...

    that's the short and easy answer.

    Depends on the year of your engine, the later ones apparently do not respond too well to tuning at all, it's the fuel pump that is weak apparently when tuning boxes etc are put on. Springs snapping happens a fair bit on the vectras. There's loads on here to read up about, although to be honest it's mostly the 1.9 cdti's and you'll see a lot of negatives about the 3L

    Mine suffered bottom end failure at around 125000 miles, which i wasn't expecting. but thankfully i bought it off a dealer (not main dealer) and after a few letters from me he had the engine 'remanufactured' for me at a cost £4500! The other thing that i managed to do was warp the front discs (a touch over enthusiastic with the braking perhaps, it's a big lump to stop) and i had a rear caliper stick on and knacker my rear discs.

    Maybe i'm just lucky!?

    Now i'm just waiting for my DMF, Fuel Pump or DPF to fail... Still, i'm in no hurry to change it at the moment, I had a VXR before the CDTI and i find this a lot more user friendly, especially in traffic!

    Hi and welcome. Not long joined the club myself and for my sins have a
    V6 3L like yourself, so, have it all to discover as well. Reckon that if you drive your motor right you won,t have to many probs.
