    Default Evening AllCan

    Evening to all I have a problem with my 97-08 plate vectra exclusiv 1.8 that is beggining to test my pacience, When I drive about after it heats upit sounds like a diesel car but when it sits idling over it goes back to normal and the yellow light with the spanner on the dash goes back off. I have had it on the machine and the code for the camshaft sensor came up and it was changed but I still have the noise and the light.

    Can anyone give me some info on this as the car has only done 26000 miles it is fully seviced.

    William

    Hello and welcome ..........

    Be careful ........... ...... One of the admin might smack your hand , because this is an " Introduce Yourself " section and all other questions have to be asked in the appropriate places .

    But , i think they will let you off as you are new .

    Enjoy the site and don't be afraid to ask .

    hi bud id change the oil asap also take off the dephaser sylanoid and give them a good clean out as your 1.8 will be a vvt engine a bit of noise is normal on start up as it takes a min or 3 to get the oil to get to the dephaser pully if its noise all the time after you have done a oil change and had a clean of the sylonoids the only way around it it replace the syloniods if that dont work its a timing belt change and replace the dephaser pull when the belt is getting done

    Thank you very much for your information it was a great help its just a pity I never asked on here before I changed the timing belt and alot of other things that cost me nearly 1200 pounds I now have the problem with a stereo that I bought on ebay it is a cd 70 with the satnav but it comes up as being safe every time it is put in the car I even got the guy I bought it off to send me a copy of the pass with the chasis number and radio code but vauhall wont entertain me. there is nothing wrong with the cd30 that is in my car I just want it for the built in satnav as I do alot of travelling. If you can think of anything to help it will be greatly appreciated. Again thank you very much
