    Default Just a few questions

    Hi all.

    As i have said in the introduce yourself forum, i'm new to the site and a complete virgin to my Vectra, so please excuse me if come across a little confused at times.

    Ok she is a 08 Vectra 1.9 Diesel CDTi SRI. 47000 miles manual 6 speed box.

    (1) My only pet hate and concern with engines are Cam Belts. When should i be looking to have it changed and along with the water pump, what else should be replaced with it ?

    (2) EGR....i came across one of these when changing glow plugs on my old Peugeot Partner van...in-line with the air filter and inlet manifold. A tube like valve with a flap inside. I did clean it out as it was quite gunked up and made sure the flap was free. What exactly is it..and what does it do. Also is it advisable to clean it and if so how do i go about it.

    (3) The car has a trip meter in it....if Ive read it correct its saying i'm running at an average of 37.7mpg and a average of speed of 17 miles an hour..( to be fair since having it we have done mostly city journeys, stop start and slow moving traffic. Do you think this is good..bad or average.

    Many thanks in advance

    Regards

    Dave.

    I've got a 1.8 petrol rather than a diesel, and I get about 35 - 36 mpg with normal to work and back miles - about 7 miles on the dual carriageway. My average speed is around 30-32mph. I don't really understand why I would need to know the average speed... any ideas?
