    Default Vectra C 2.2 dti cutting out

    Hi all

    This has proberly been asked somewhere on here but i cant seem to find so any help would be much appreciated.

    I have a vectra C (53 plate) 2.2DTI it takes ages to start after sitting for a day or two, when it does finally start it cuts out after about 5 secs.

    When it does finally start i get a massive amount of white smoke come out the exhaust.....

    I have changed all the leak off hoses, the vacume hoses, cleaned the egr valve and even changed the battery as it was getting a bit weak.....

    What can i do next to help solve this? im going to try changing teh fuel filter this weekend to see if that helps.

    Any advice would be very much appreciated..

    Thanks...

    My 2.2DTI did this occasionally. The engine shutoff butterfly valve (just before the EGR valve) was closing when it should have been open. The cause was the vacuum solenoid that controls that butterfly valve actuator was leaking vacuum a bit due to dirt inside. I gave it a good flush through with WD40 and it's been fine since. Next time your engine won't start, pull off the vac pipe from the butterfly actuator and see if it starts.
