    Default My vectra is missing this......what is it and what does it do?

    Ignore the cylinder 4 caption,

    Cast your eyes on the boost sensor and then look to the left........see that wire coming out the opposite end?

    What is this?

    Mine is missing this completley and is an empty hole........TPS or something isn't it?

    Its never been there and my car is revving on its own right up to 2000rpm and not running right..

    can someone shed some light please?

    what does it do?

    Correct, you appear to somehow be missing a boost sensor! Quite how that has happened I don't know. Can you find the plug in the loom? It should be around there somewhere.

    Put your finger in the hole, is it blocked off?

    Your boost sensor is next to it so you have one of those

    Is that not the throttle plate position sensor? Some of the DTi's have both - I had a look at someone else's 2.0 DTi a few months ago and from what I remember, it had both TPS and boost sensors.

    I don't think thats his engine, pretty sure it's used in one of the How2s

    Hiya, your right it is the boost sensor - but no wire/loom going into it?!? I and so has BobSignum looked all over my engine to see if its tucked anywhere and we can't trace it at all so I believe it is missing.......bare in mind this 2.0 Dti engine is out of an 05 plate and my car is an 04....

    So how does it run?

    Like a dog - on and off really - sometimes its not too bad but other times its like an absolute dog....the traction control light comes on and the engine revs itself up to 2000rpm so accelerates and deaccelerates on its own plus it revs up and down on its own in traffic????

    Where can I fix this guys? I just wish this car was running A1!

    thank you all for your responses so far


    James
