    Default Went to get fault codes read...

    ...and the diagnostics machine the garage had couldnt pick up my car! The guy said that had only hapened once before and it was on a ..........wait for it..........Vectra C that had been remapped. He asked if mine had been remapped but is far as im aware its standard.

    Anyways, he said to take it back in tomorrow morning and he will bring his own laptop in as he thinks he can hook it up to that and do it!

    Fingers crossed

    Just got back from the garage, it worked this time but the guy had to enter the manufacturer as Opel instead of Vauxhall before it would pick the car up? Strange!

    Anyways, its the DPF thats the problem. He said its the cause of alot of problems he has seen with cars that have them. Its also throwing up an exhaust temp sennsor code but thats caused by dpf being knackered!

    He recommended taking it off and blasting it through with a jet wash? That might sort it for 6 months or so but ideally i should think about having it removed.

    What a pain in the hoop!

    Im wondering if its worth biting the bullet and getting ben at MAS to blank the egr, remove dpf and remap....he quoted me £310.

    There is also a glow plug fault too, think i should be able to change them myself tho and they are reasonably cheap i think!



    At least i know what the problems are now tho!
