    Default 1.8 VVT Owners HELP! Z18XER

    Can anyone help me please, I have purchased a 2007 vectra 1.8 vvt with 91000 on the clock but the engine is quite loud compared to my dads non vvt is this normal??? but my main worry is when i remove the oil cap whilst it is running it sounds really rough as though it wants to cut out, as soon as I put it back on the engine sounds normal again. Is this normal for the 1.8 vvt. thanks steve

    I've owned both non VVT, and now a VVT, and can't honestly say that I'd noticed a huge amount of difference in engine noise to be honest. As for the engine slowing when the oil cap is removed, I believe it is normal on many engines for the idle speed to drop a little when you do this. To do with you messing up the air pressure or vacuum within the engine or something.

    When was the last time it had an oil/filter change? Avoid the recommend 20k service intervals and use good quality oil, 5/30 fully synthetic oil. I change my oil and filter every 6 months regardless of mileage.
