    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : Sri

    Engine : 2.0 turbo

    Year : 2005

    Default Worrying times :(

    My service and mot is booked for Saturday 27th October and i'm really worried, there is that much about the car lately i think im looking at serious money to put things right. This morning i got in the car and started her up and drove to work upon getting to work on idle there was a vibration/rattle (really hard to explain) coming into the car, the symptoms i'm having are

    Rough start up
    Lumpy idle ( only when warm/or been on long run )
    fast tapping sound on idle ( goes when pressing clutch pedal)
    gear changes 1st, 2nd, 3rd are not smooth ( very notchy )

    Also when driving along and i dis-engage 1st to go for 2nd i hear a rattle underneath the gearstick area like exhaust is loose etc, and at times the engine to me feels rough when driving etc.

    The whole experience is worrying me as im thinking im in for a hell of a bill. On the plus side the car does drive fine there is no crunching in and out of gears and the car drives well.

    Other things that i think are going to pop up are discs front/rear, Tie rods ( play in steering ), Leak on air conditioning condenser which i'm going to ask for them to do, also arb bushes front/rear which i'm going to ask them to do, i also think i may need a new exhaust.

    I hope i'm worrying about nothing but i do feel the gearbox is goosed.

    Hope someone can help me

    I'd be extremly surprised if its anything but the flywheel, can you upgrade the 2.0 turbo flywheels?
