    Default Hello - New Owner!

    Hi everyone,
    I'm just about to pick up my first Vectra. It's an 04 2.2 SXi, with the direct engine.

    Could anyone tell me what are the main differences between the 'direct' version as opposed to a 'normal' engine?

    Are there any well known faults or concerns that I should be looking out for?

    Thanks for help / advice shared.

    Hi ya matey. Enjoy Vectra-C.

    In answer to your question -

    The 2.2 Direct Ecotec engine: debut of Opel/Vauxhall’s first gasoline direct-injection engine. The new 2.2 Direct Ecotec is the first Opel/Vauxhall direct-injection gasoline engine controlled via a variable intake control in which both intake canals are controlled according to the load conditions. This causes an intensive turbulence of the fuel in the burn chamber so that an especially efficient combustion occurs. During partial load, high rates of exhaust gas recirculation provide for low fuel consumption. This creates a positive condensation (12:1) compared to the conventional 2.2 Ecotec engine. The cooling of the fuel air mix in the injection chamber allows for improved power development. The 114 kW (155 hp) engine consumes approximately 6% less fuel as compared to a similar inlet manifold injection unit, yet it has approximately 10% more torque at low rpm and 6% more power. The Vectra station wagon 2.2 Direct requires only 8.1 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers.
