I have only owned my vectra just over 1 month and already it is doing my brain in with little faults.
But recently I had the exhaust emission light stay on - had no power and car was definitely in limp mode!
I called my mechanic I use and he said it is probably your EGR valve - if it happens again give me a call and I'll sort it etc etc.
So it just seemed to go away - since the nice weather has been it has been fine.
But now it seems to have really hit - the car has been so temperamental - sometimes no boost in first and second then all of a sudden boost.
Also on start up - it makes an awful clunking noise in the engine bay and judders aggressively.
Here is a video I took of the problem today (note in the video it has NEVER taken that long to start!):
I have ordered some bg224 fuel system cleaner which is pretty good stuff. But is this more serious than a clogged EGR?
It is very frustrating as I sold my 330 to save money (which I have on fuel) but it seems I am just going to be forever forking out to fix faults.
the car has an excellent history with it and a great spec. So I hope it is just a small fault that can be sorted.
All help is massively appreciated
