    Default Hi from Serbia

    I'am on a step before buying Vectra C - 2006. Engine is petrol 1.8 140PS. Is there any faults I should take care of before final decision?

    Thanks.

    open the wallet lol... Check the cat, rear shocks, bushes, front strut mounts. The 1.8 Engine is prob the most reliable, so just look after it and should be fine.

    the only problem i found with 1.8 is the engine mounted ecu, have a tendancy to fail due to heat and vibration

    Thanks for comments.


    @MURDO
    Putting KYB in it - will this make problem dissapear?

    @Neill
    Did you mount ECU on some "absorbers" - how did you solve vibration problem?
    Regarding temperature - is it its own temperature or environment/motor temperature that causes problem? Do you have some pic of ECU in motor compartment, so I could know where to look for it?


    I'm also considering to put BRC sequent gas equipment in it. Have anyone done it on this motor?

    Thanks in advance.

    Best regards.
