    Default Vauxhall Signum - P0170 Error Code

    Hello,

    I have a 55 plate Vauxhall Signum 2.8 V6 Turbo Elite.

    I've been suffering from a few symptoms:

    - Warning light on dash
    - Rough idle
    - Struggles to start after filling up. I have to press the accelerator a few times to get it to start.

    The car never struggles to start normally, but does everytime after filling up without fail.

    A friend plugged his Vauxhall diagnostics lead in and the car had one error code. This was P0170 - Fuel Trim System Too Rich - Bank 1. When the error is reset it immediatly comes back.

    I've noticed several different potential problems after searching the net however I wonder if any of you bright individuals could reduce this based on the symptoms I have.

    Cheers

    Andrew

    Their is a purge valve on the back of the engine inlet manifold that normaly is the cause for non start.

    I guess you may have seen this already? http://www.obd-codes.com/p0170

    Then read up on "testing MAF", some vids on Youtube.
