    Vehicle : vectra 1.9 cdti

    Trim : sri

    Engine : 120 8v

    Year : 2006

    Mileage : 84000

    Default My 120 1.9 is apparently a bit smoky

    had a friend drop the car back today after a good night over at his yesterday,but his missus was following and said its not just a bit smoky when given a good boot but during general running it smoking a bit.i will try to get out and follow the wife driving it if i can find another car to sit in,but wondered what i should be looking at.
    its currently had a bottle of forte cleaner in just over half a tank which has over 10 ltrs left to use,so wondering if its partly that breaking down the gunk.i have cleaned a couple of sensors which were gunked and have done the airbox mod last week.the filter was ok and now its open it should easily have enough air getting in with half the filter clean.since doing that the drive has improved a little if your at low revs in second and third.when i was doing the airbox i had a general look and noticed a small amount of soot at the clamp on the turbo,noy much but wasnt too happy seeing it there,so whats the things i can have a look at.

    Try a new fuel filter.

    This air filter is it new? replace if not but as you say air box mod is it a K&N or similar?

    fuel filter was new 7k ago.airfilter the same.standard filter.not interested in k and n,never rated their design tbh,prefer something like pipercross,so may look out for a new filter.k and n filters arent the best on bikes which i have rode for 16 years,they have occasionally made things worse.if i could get race foam element,i would just cut the original paper out and glue a piece of that in,just the same!i do admit it does mainly low end town driving,so i will keep the revs up with this last 10-15 ltrs and try to get time to clean the egr up.got an mot due in under 3 weeks so dont want to leave this till last minute and get stung.had it on ramps saturday briefly and everything looked good underneath,which was a bonus.
