Hello, am a newbie to the vectra c sri cdti 150 just bought a 56 plate veccy and hasnt been off to a good start either... had the car few month now already had a thermosat on it
i have a leaking injector on number 3! so after alot of garages saying they wont be able to remove it as it will be locked soilid and other garages wanting £££'s i found a very local garage to me agreed to remove injector mega clean it up! cleaned the bore + new copper washer and new 'O' ring etc etc... and sort my problem out he'd done loads diesels injectors good named garage LONG STORY CUT SHORT!
(am aTART with my cars wont use any tom,dick or harry btw)
so as of monday heres whats happened,
MONDAY round.1 = FAIL! still leaking louder and worse..
(so took it back next day)
TUESDAY round.2 = MEGA FAIL i got about 1mile away and car was undrivable had to be towed back to garage..smoke every were!!!
(leaking worse then ever!!!) was like a train!!!!!!!
WEDNESDAY round.3 = SUPER FAIL garage can not get injector sealed back in???? rang me to have a look said its not getting a seal we keep trying going to try new stud bolt to get the injector locked in better as my stud (which holds injector in is higher then others??? hmmmm?)..
Soooo ive had a qwick look/read though search bar and found bits and bobs about injectors but still abit lost on them? whats my best way of action because i'm now carless + fed up and sick to be honest now any ideas ive seen its a common problem is there any good link help tips would be great to pass info on to garage to try?
who ever put this FIAT engine in my vectra needs shot!!!
