    Vehicle : Vectra c SRI Facelift

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2006

    Default awfull shut down when turning engine off

    The past couple of day when turning the engine off the car sounds and feels like a tractor faling off a cliff.Seems to have started after i took EGR valve off and cleaned it

    Would the EGR cause this problem?

    Engine is a 1.9cdti 150
