    Default 2004 vectra 2.2 sri

    went to vauxhall dealer for diagnostics cos car was not running right thought it was fuel related pump, sensor, regulator, egr theey said it was my timing belt jumped they wanted £1000 i dont know if they changed the fuel regulator yet but when i took it in they said it was due for a recall on the regulator i was hopping that would work but this timing chain thing has thrown me i was able to drive the car down in first gear but could not excellerate or it would cut out they said there has been no dammage does all this sound right

    I had the same happen to me, timing jumped a few teeth. Surely if there is no damage a simple timing chain replacement kit would have you sorted, no where near £1000.

    sounds like more regulator related to me, would timing jump not throw up fault codes relating to cam, crank positions etc??????? mine was running rough as a badgers, and first thing vaux said they'd check would be timing chain....it was hp fuel pump, chain tensioner is starting to play up a bit too in my opinion so will be next on list. sooner rather than later me thinks

    they estimated £700.00 for chain repair, kit and labour. Friend mechanic said £300.00, kit plus about 5 hours labour.
