    Default swirl valve rod

    hi i've got an old problem just wondering if there were any new answers it's a vectra cdti sri 150 it looses power and also feels like someone throws a switch and cuts all power then throws it back on again i've had a look at the actuator rod and found it was off the valves 1,2 and 4 valves move freely on there own 3 doesn't as i know it attached to the actuator there is also oil on top of the manifold and around the valves does anyone know if this is the actuator manifold fault or could it be something else like clogged egr valve vauxhall (robbing bas***d) dealer wants £100 + vat to run a diagnostic check
