    Default cat exhaust system

    hi there all im new to the site ..
    i have got a vectra c 1.9cdti (sri) nav and have just had the engine managment and emissions lights come on and gone into limp mode ...

    on arrival at garage the egr valve was at fault .. no big deal i thought thrn the phone calls started .. the cat has failed as well ....ok so a new cat was ordered ... 2 days later ... the cat has to come from vauxhall ... the bill doubled over night ... and guess what the waranty does not cover either items ... £1200.00 the bill has now gone to ....
    nice of vauxhall to make it dealer only part !!!! robbing b******s

    Blank your egr de-cat your car and get it tech 2'd off the ecu It will cost you alot less than the steelers bill. I'm sure someone will explain this better than I can.

    Nah Its a smoke test on oil burners mate.
    My car has had the de-cat done. A 2.2dti.

    Lots on here have blanked thier Egr's and De-catted the 1.9cdti. The De-cat throws a light up so it needs to be removed by Tech2 this also stops the regen.

    Yes I think thats how they do it. still cheeper than the steelers. Well worth doing IMO. I'll see if i can find a thread relating to the1.9 engine.

    I dunno? No smoke no poke! Is it not normal for it to smoke when booted?
    I'll try and find a link to a thread that will explain.
