    Default Possible exhaust problem?

    Hey guys, only had my Vectra 1.9CDTI for a couple of months now but recently I have noticed that when the car is stationary with the engine running there is a strong smell of engine fumes inside the car.

    I thought maybe a hole in the exhaust somewhere but a quick examination from a guy who was fitting new tyres seems to think the problem is coming from some flexi hose in the front part of the exhaust section.

    Does this sound familiar to anyone? Any help is appreciated, thanks.

    Very familiar lol! You need this http://www.catalyticconvertershop.co.../5380/details/ or here http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1107786198...84.m1438.l2649

    Or get an exhaust specalist to weld a new flexi pipe in. Dont go to vauxhall as they will rip you off.

    Check egr valve first to be sure

    Use some talc to sprinkle over exhaust to indentify where it's blowing from
