    Hi there, have you got less power too? I think it could be the vvt bit, the phase of the valves is controlled by what my dealer called cam phasers. These work off oil pressure they have filters that get blocked. The dealer removed the filters on mine, and it fine now.
    It sounded like it was knocking badely on the top end, and there was a loss of power I noticed it going to work, when I was having to change down uphill to hold 70.

    Google the following - cam solenoid 1.8 vvti

    Top reply from astra forum

    Hope this helps.

    It is possible it'll cost that much as I bet it's a dealer only part.
    As above I heard of filters being removed an it being fine after.

    My mate changed a 1.8 engine in a vectra he had a few weeks ago as it threw a piston. I've just text him to see if it was vvti as you could maybe use that one and save some cash.

    Not done them before but can't see it being to bad so if ya need a hand one night let me know.
