    Vehicle : Vectra and a Signum

    Trim : top of the line in both

    Engine : Z18XE,Z19DTH,Z20NET

    Year : 2006

    Default

    what colour is the oil you can see if you take the cap off? I note you have a 2.2 petrol, how many miles has it done? Have you checked anything so far like the sparkplugs or the lambda sensor? Do you have white smokey exhaust these days?
