    Default Anyone heard of this ??

    i have been offered a 2004 plate vectra c tdci for quite cheap as the owner says it needs an engine.

    i have asked him why it needs a new engine and his reply was

    ''its something to do with the inlet manifold , its blowing air around the engine instead of sucking it in''

    has anyone heard of this or anything like it ?

    thanx for any replies

    Sounds like swirl bar has come off and tumbler flaps are leaking

    What engine is it if it's a 1.9cdti 150bhp then this will be the proble
    Any other engine you would need to look into it

    No probs. If you are going to attempt it your self make sure before anything - you obtain the upgraded manifold. To be safe go to the dealer or Autovaux - that's my recommendation anyway.

    The issue may be the EGR valve. The swirl bar fault either gives poor higher rev range performance or lots of smoke low down.

    EGR valve jamming opened when it shouldn't will cause rough running and the odd misfire and high end performance is usually affected. Torque at 1,500-2,000rpm is usually poor too.
