    Default EML on and off....EGR....?

    Hi I know this is a vectra c forum but i cant find any help with my vectra b problem...!

    Its a 2.0l diesel ecotec engine 2000 reg.

    The eml light flashed on and off about 3 weeks ago and the car felt less powerful, not too much but a bit, when the light comes on its in limp mode but thwen the light goes of it regains power but no full power.

    Been like this for 3 weeks, starts fine, drives ok upto 3500revs just less power as stated. I put my foot to the floor in 3rd today and its went to 3500 revs and the eml came on suddenly. The turbo is working as it comes on as normal. Im wondering if the EGR might be blocked.....? Any ideas...?

    Cheers Charlie.

    I'd start by checking the all common vac tubes & connectors for splits

    Thanks.

    I cant see any cracks or disturbed pipes, leaks etc...

    Do these have an exhaust manifold pressure sensor like that later vecrta c diesel...? Also where is the EGR...? When i came off the motorway yesterday after work it seemed to have regained a bit more power, so i revved upto 4000 in 3rd then the eml just suddenly shot on and the car lurched back down with sluggish power again.
