    Question vectra c 2,2 petrol sri

    just changed spark plugs and oil filter yesterday, in the rain! plus rear pads. All gm parts. One hour on the classic missing problem and loss of power when booting it. Engine light only comes on when I boot it. Goes off when engine is switched off. Dealers changed the fuel pump last year £780, no contribution. Has the pump gone again?

    I had the Fuel Pressure Regulator changed under a recall last month and mine has been miss firing ever since.

    Dealer wants me to pay for any investigation even though it was not there before they got their hands on it

    quick follow up...

    just out of the dealers, they are looking to take the back in and swap out the FPR for a new one. This will be ok if it fixes the misfire, but if it doesnt then I need to foot the bill and also whatever other investigation is required to actually fix the fault

    The ECU light does not come on and I have no Fault codes logged when I connect a U480 coed reader...

    Any ideas?

    Mine did the same mate , no codes stored, Vx found out it was the HPFP that was throwing the fault up, and not the regulator Got it changed in 30 mins at a cost of £365 i think ?

    Must have taken their time with the 3 bolts that loosens it !!

    Not Good Car just out of warranty too.

    I assume whatever they disturbed when changing the FPR has caused this, but how would I prove that!!

    I am maybe starting to regret buying the 2.2 direct

    I have seen the heat related stuff in a few other threads, but assumed it was to do with something else...

    My concern is if the new FPR are heat sensitive then another new one will not cure the problem and I will be left with a big bill and a broken car
