    Default Big Hello from New Vec C Owner from West Sussex...

    Hi All,

    Just joined so saying Hi to everyone - looks like an awesome community (first forum I've ever joined tbh - go easy on me)

    Just bought a Vec C 1.9cdti Estate Design in Metro Blue, not off to a good start though.

    Picked car up Friday , Broke down and got towed home Saturday, now car is back with garage to inspect. Has Fuel Injector No.3 fault, misfiring and kangarooing like crazy down the bypass finally ending in EML coming on. When Greenflag guy popped off engine cover, I also noticed the Swirl Valve rod was also popped off with grime and oil round the swirl valves so looks like new inlet manifold too.

    Love the Veccie but looks like I could be a regular here ...

    Cheers Guys for all the welcomes !

    For what it's worth I knew nowt about Vectra's before visiting this forum. Have been reading up on Howto's etc the last several days and have learnt loads already, way more than any Haynes manual can teach you, because of you guys sharing your wealth of knowledge I even told the breakdown guy what the problem was with the Injector when he read out the fault code

    Hoping the garage will be good and do the manifold , but if not i'm already 80% decided to do it myself along with the belt and waterpump, looks a biggie but doesn't phase me (yet !!!)

    I'm sure I'll be pestering you all for help when it all goes wrong...
